Save Money By Saving Water In The Education Sector

Our new blog mini-series “save money by saving water” will demonstrate how different industries can benefit from reduced business water usage. Specifically, focusing on industry-related water efficiency measures and how implementation can result in reduced costs. Let’s begin by discussing water saving initiatives for the education sector.

If you’re in charge of a school, doing whatever you can to stay on top of your budget is key. Financial pressures across the public sector have left head teachers with the need to work harder to balance the books. It was reported recently that 66% of head teachers were considering cutting teaching support hours, and half were considering cutting teaching hours. But, there may still be ways of making cost savings without having such a drastic impact on teaching.

Save money by switching your school’s water retailer

It still isn’t widely known that schools can shop around for the best deal on water on the business retail water market. Since 2017, it has been possible for schools, public sector organisations and businesses to shop around for the best deal on water utilities in the same way that domestic customers can shop around for the best electricity and gas supplier. This means there are instant savings to be made. Simply by switching to Castle Water, you could save up to 80% on your fixed business water charges. This could add up to thousands of pounds’ worth of savings every year.

Switching your water supplier can bring other benefits in terms of the services offered. For example, as a Castle Water customer you can set up an online account via our customer portal, MyAccount.
