Get a good business gas rate for hotels
In the hospitality industry there is a high dependence on energy. The room temperature is one of the things that if a guest is going to complain about, they will. They often like to set their own temperature and what may be comfortable for the staff, is not so for the guests who have more often than not, either been out in the freezing cold or the steaming hot sun. Since there is a high constant consumption especially during peak season it is imperative that as a business you apply for a business gas rate, basically this is where a discount is applied to your gas bill for high energy consumption. Many suppliers, for example, Haven Power, one of our partners, offers a budget plan where businesses can take a flat rate across the year based on their average consumption. As the name suggests this allows you to budget better and plan ahead.
For hotels and restaurants you may have found that you instead of accurate billing you get billed according to estimates because of the fluctuations. This is tricky when the gas consumption is not constant and based on the time of the year for tourists perhaps, or the time of the month. As such you may benefit from npower’s free smart meters on their smart meter package. This means that you are able to monitor dips and rises in gas usage as well as get an accurate reading for your gas consumption. Smart meters are also helpful in identifying areas in which one can be more efficient.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that to get a business gas rate you need to be in the industrial sector. In hospitality gas consumption is also higher than average domestic use with larger buildings to keep lit up, large stoves that take a long time to heat and as such need to stay on despite the low volume of guests.
Being more energy efficient is as simple as studying the behaviour of your guests. There is no need to reinvent the wheel, hotel guests are fairly predictable! Take a business gas rate that offers a package including lower costs for off peak business usage.
