Energy for Charities and Not-for-Profit Organisations

Small changes mean big savings in energy for charities and not-for-profit organisations

Every year, charities and not-for-profit organisations are losing money on electricity and gas. Many financial managers are unaware of exemptions, VAT reductions, and available rebates – a situation that is exacerbated by suppliers who often treat charities as small businesses.

Charities and not-for-profits are under pressure to account for their spending, with rigorous reporting structures and pressure to perform. When it comes to utilities and energy for charities and not-for-profits, small changes can mean big savings – which make a big difference to the causes they support. These organisations are often overcharged for electricity and gas, sometimes spanning years. Over and above this, shopping the market for the best rates is often a tall order for busy admin and finance teams.

The reality is, if you don’t keep a close eye on your utility bills, you could very well be missing out on money which could be better spent within other sectors of your organisation. Partnering with Smarter Business means you have a team of experts on-hand to assist with your electricity and gas procurement, management, and strategy requirements. Our experience in the not-for-profit sector gives us intimate knowledge of the structures that should be in place around your energy bills.
