Why businesses should stop ignoring the elephant in the room

The Bristol Energy B2B team have been at business showcases across the country encouraging businesses to stop ignoring the elephant in the room.

But the reality is, large energy bills can break small businesses. And many businesses aren’t getting a fair deal.

Bristol has a thriving independent scene, packed with unique and quirky shops, cafes and start-up businesses. And of course its own independent energy company (that’s us). It even has its own currency, the Bristol Pound.
