Orchard Energy has secured savings totalling more than £375,000 to heavy manufacturing firms operating in the minerals and metals industry.
The Elland-based firm has worked with companies to maximise savings against the government’s climate change levies, which have resulted in spiralling costs for many business owners.
A sink manufacturer, a wire manufacturer and a quarry operator, have each made savings totalling well into five figures, while refunds and rebates on bills previously paid have also been secured for clients after audits conducted by Orchard Energy found evidence of inaccurate billing.
Amar Hussain, Orchard Energy’s managing director, said: “Our experts understand the complex nature of the sector and their relationship with the energy market and government levies, so we are very pleased with the savings we have been able to deliver.
“Our independent status, coupled with our joined-up approach, enables us to explore all opportunities and allows us to make recommendations solely for the benefit of businesses. We hope to reach out to more in the months ahead.”
With its headquarters in Elland,Orchard t also has offices in Glasgow, Cardiff, Newcastle and Bristol.
