Help optimise your business energy bills


Optimise your businesses energy bills

 

Government research indicates that SMEs are missing out on savings of up to 25% on their energy bill – just from simple low or no cost measures.

The Business Growth Hub has launched a fully funded support package to help Greater Manchester SME's optimise energy usage and build resilience against rising energy prices. There’s a free workshop at Bolton College on Thursday 6th July from 9.30am which will provide quick, 'no and low cost' energy saving measures which will cut energy use in your operations. Expert advisors will be on hand to help your business build its own tailored action plan and business case for action.
