Dry Cleaners electricity costs reduced by 22%
This dry cleaning business in Surrey approached Perfect Clarity in 2013. With an annual electricity consumption of just under 40,000 kWh, they were faced with hefty renewal prices from British Gas. An increase of over £500 per year.
Our British Gas prices were lower than this. But we had better options still, from the other 20-25 suppliers we work with. The result, a 2-year fixed electricity rate, saving £340 a each year on the the best price they were able to find.
Average electricity rates for a Dry Cleaners
The average electricity rate for a dry-cleaning business using 35,000 kWh of electricity per year is around 12.40p per kWh. And a standing charge of 25.00p per day. Around £4,430 per year then, on electricity. And this is before CCL and VAT are added to your electricity bill.
This is based on a 12-month fixed price electricity contract, as of March 2020, for a single rate meter. Rates are sourced from the lowest prices we have available in different regions of the UK.
The actual rate available in your region could be higher or lower than this. For example, applying the same criteria but to a business in Scotland, could see electricity rates over 13.00p per kWh.
Electricity rates may also be affected by the amount of electricity used at your premises. But this depends on the individual electricity supplier. And you may have a meter with more than one rate, in which case the above figures are not applicable. Just call us for prices.
Fixing your electricity prices for more than one year will also be a little more expensive. But probably a better idea that will save you money in the long run. Call us for more information.

Gas prices for Dry Cleaners
Gas prices are also dependent on volume used in a year, even more so than electricity. In actual fact, gas prices vary so much based on consumption and supplier, we aren’t going to give you an indication here, you will have to call us!
With electricity, the standing charge is generally quite similar across suppliers and consumption figures. Whereas with gas prices, the standing charge can vary from zero to 20.00p per day, to 80.00p per day, to 300.00p per day.
Some gas suppliers will offer a high standing charge and reduce the price per kWh of gas. Others will place more emphasis on the unit price of gas, leaving you a lower standing charge.
