For the best results, a pub electricity bill can be attacked from two sides. First, reduce the amount of electricity used by your pub. This energy saving not only saves you money, it helps the fight against climate change too. Secondly, shop around to reduce the amount you pay for the electricity you still have to use. You could reduce your pub electricity bill by as much as 40%. That has got to increase your profit margin.

It could be because your energy supplier is estimating how much gas or electricity you use, your thermostat settings are too high, the price you are paying per unit for your energy is too much, or there may even be a fault with the meter. Lets investigate these in more detail.
