“There is the potential that with the upcoming price review that businesses and organisations could see a reduction in water costs in 2020 – but they can start to save money on their bills now through better water management.
“At Inenco, we offer several services to help businesses to reduce their water consumption, and, in turn, their costs. A good start is a water efficiency audit to assess use and identify where savings can be made.
“Having a robust leak monitoring, detection and repair service is also key to achieving the most cost-effective water budget possible. As leaks are often underground, with little, if any, visible impact, the ability to monitor consumption and identify leaks quickly is key to minimising the associated costs. By their nature, leaks will only become worse – and more costly – over time. Earlier this year we saved a client over £100k per year through a leak repair service.
“The savings promised by Ofwat – between £15 and £25 a year from 2020 to 2025 – are relatively modest. Businesses should be able to realise more significant savings by managing their consumption more effectively, and repairing any leaks.”
