The Scottish Water Retail Market
When it comes to business water supplies, Scotland has been something of a pioneer, opening the world’s first water retail market for businesses back in 2008, allowing non-domestic customers to choose their own water supplier for the very first time.
Now, businesses of any size can find their own supplier, as can charities and both nonprofit and public sector organisations, enabling them to sign up with a firm that best meets their specific needs, one that has experience of working within their particular sector or industry.
Wholesaler Scottish Water works with these licensed providers, with all enquiries directed to the supplier rather than the wholesaler. If you’re not sure who your licensed provider is, you can find this information out by looking at a recent bill, or find more information here.
Can your business switch water suppliers in Scotland?
If your business has been operating since before 2008 (which is when the Scottish water market first opened up) and you’ve never switched suppliers before, then you will likely find that your supplier is Business Stream (the first non-domestic retailer in Scotland), but you can easily move elsewhere if you think that they’re no longer serving you as well as you’d like.
One of the biggest benefits of the retail market is that it encourages competition, which means that organisations are able to find the cheapest business water rates, seek out better deals, make savings, enjoy better customer service and reduce water consumption by switching water supplier.
Benefits of switching include improved value for money, greater water efficiency, billing consolidation for multiple sites, cost reductions thanks to lower water and sewerage prices, and many more besides.
The process of changing retailers or setting up new water connections is a lot easier than it sounds and it typically takes around a month to complete the process.
