April 2017 saw the deregulation of water in England, allowing organisations to join those in Scotland, giving them freedom to choose their retail water supplier.
The system allows non-domestic customers to have the opportunity to choose their retail water supplier as opposed to the previous method of having to buy retail water services directly from the regional water company.
This subsequently allowed organisations in England to control and potentially save money on their water bills. Being able to choose separate retailers for both their water retail services and another for their wastewater services allows a company to shop around.
Retailer prices are constantly changing; renegotiating or switching retailers should be considered by your business to ensure you are never paying too much.
