The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is launching a new service to help its members reduce their gas and electricity bills by almost a quarter.
The new Energy service is part of a concerted drive by FSB to help smaller businesses reduce their energy costs. The organisation is also representing the interests of smaller businesses by responding to the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA)'s investigation into the energy market and creating a resource hub on its new website offering advice on energy efficiency measures.
The new service enables FSB members to obtain advice on competitive rates for their utilities, identify the annual saving achievable by switching tariffs and even have new contracts arranged for them if requested. It is born out of research suggesting that smaller businesses are being failed by the energy market, with 70% of these businesses experiencing difficulty comparing energy tariffs and 43% saying they have never switched supplier.
