Energy efficiency can reduce bills by 18-25% with an average payback of less than 1.5 years.
That’s according to a report by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
It also states 31% of FSB members said energy costs were a barrier to growth and 90% of them want to be energy efficient but only a fifth have been offered advice on how to be.
The report adds 45% of small businesses say rented premises prevent further efficiency and 61% of small businesses say enhanced tax relief would encourage energy efficiency.
It went on to say more than half of small businesses “are motivated by environmental protection”.
