water is open for business
From April 2017, over 1.2 million eligible businesses and other non-household customers in England will be able to choose their supplier of water and wastewater retail services.
The smallest high street shops to the largest public authorities will be able to shop around and choose their retailer or renegotiate their existing deal.
If your business is eligible, you could benefit from:
- lower bills and better value for money
- better customer service
- more tailored services to suit your business needs
- help to become more water-efficient
The new market also offers new opportunities for businesses to become licensed suppliers of water and wastewater retail services.
If your business premises are currently served by a supplier that is based wholly or mainly in Wales, you will be able to choose your water retailer only if you use 50 million litres of water or more per year.
