Gas and Electricity Suppliers for Retail

Shaun Starr |

June 2021


When you consider lighting the shop floor and displays, powering equipment and appliances, as well as heating and cooling, retail stores are heavily reliant on gas and electricity. This can lead to some eye-watering energy bills for stores overpaying for their gas and electricity.

Yet trawling from supplier to supplier to find a cheaper energy deal is often understandably the last thing on your mind.

That is where Love Energy Savings can help. Since 2007, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers make savings on their energy bills.

Reduce your retails store’s energy bills

Reducing your retail store’s energy bills is one of the simplest ways to save money and increase your profits.

Cutting your energy bills by 20% can be worth around a 5% increase in sales, improving the profitability of your store.

If you don’t switch to a new energy deal before your contract ends, you’ll usually be switched over to your supplier’s out-of-contract rates. If your business energy contract has rolled over onto these rates, you could be overpaying significantly for your business energy.

By comparing business gas and business electricity prices with Love Energy Savings, you can have quick access to the widest range of business energy suppliers offering tariffs to suit the needs of your retail store or shop.

Retail energy saving tips

All businesses need to consider how they can reduce their energy use. Not only can reducing your energy consumption have a positive impact on the environment, but it can also help you further reduce your gas and electricity bills.

Lighting the way to lower electricity bills

The retail industry often requires bright, attractive lighting to attract customers and show off stock.

Although lighting may play a critical role in your store, there are steps you can take increase your energy efficiency and reduce your bills.

If you haven’t done so already, you should consider switching to energy efficient LED light bulbs in your store. Not only are LEDs much more energy efficient, but they can also last 20-25 times longer than a typical halogen light bulb.

Another simple (and free) tip is to introduce a ‘switch off’ policy in your store. Encourage all staff to turn off lights that are not in use by placing reminder posters in the back of store areas such as the staff and stock room. Labelling your shop’s light switches will ensure your customers aren’t accidentally plunged into darkness by a staff member flicking the wrong switch.

Keep customers comfortable whilst saving on heating bills

As heating accounts for over 30% of energy used in the average retail store, there are plenty of opportunities to find savings.

During the cold winter months, it can be tempting to blast the heating and create a toasty warm store. However, it’s important to remember that customers will likely be wearing warmer clothes if it is cold outside so temperatures should be set so they don’t become uncomfortably hot in your store.

Setting your thermostat just one degree lower can cut fuel consumption by 8%, so there’s no need to stand in the cold to make savings.

If your heating and cooling systems are set to a timer, check them regularly to ensure they still match your opening hours and are only when they need to be.

In many stores, it is possible to turn off your heating or air condition an hour before you close without your customers or staff noticing a difference.
