Charities are classified as small businesses by most energy suppliers in the UK. Like other small businesses, charities have to keep an eye on their energy bills to keep their operating costs low.
UK energy suppliers don’t have any special tariffs or discounts for charities or non-profit organisations. Regular increase in electricity and gas prices often results in those organisations struggling to keep up with their energy cost.
As most charities depend on volunteers to run their organisation and lack of experience in dealing with energy bills often cost these organisations ended up paying high electricity and gas bills than those in private sector.
At Business Energy Shop we have helped hundreds of charities across the country to reduce their electricity and gas bills by getting the right prices for them.
For the last 10 years, we have helped hundreds of churches, mosques, temples, social clubs and charity shops to save money on their energy bills.
