Council to help save money on energy bill

Businesses could soon benefit from help with energy bills thanks to Northumberland County Council.

Following the success of the authority’s Ready to Switch collective energy purchasing scheme, the council is now rolling it out to include the county’s businesses and it is now open for registration to small and medium enterprises in Northumberland.

Coun Alan Hepple, policy board member for planning, housing and regeneration, said: “This is something which we need to do, to encourage as many businesses as possible to make savings on their energy bills.

“Experience suggests that this will also trigger them to look at their bills and think about ways to reduce their energy consumption.”
