An energy consultancy firm is hoping to help businesses save money on their bills.

The North East Chamber of Commerce (NECC) has signed a new partnership with energy experts Utilitywise, based on Cobalt Business Park, to help local businesses to become more energy efficient.

The new deal will see all 4,000 NECC members offered a range of free services from Utilitywise including an energy health check, bill checking, troubleshooting estimated bills, access to an energy helpline and receiving regular newsletter updates with savings hints and tips.

The partnership will aim to make businesses in the region more energy efficient by helping them to identify when, where and how much energy is being used across their business.

Nigel Hudson, marketing director at Utilitywise, said: “Utilitywise is delighted to have been selected by the North East Chamber of Commerce as their Utility Services Partner.

“Having been a Member of the Chamber for a number of years, we have first-hand experience of the great work they do to support their Members and the north east economy as a whole.

“Our ethos is clearly aligned to that of NECC. We aim to help businesses become more efficient and therefore more competitive.”

James Ramsbotham, chief executive, NECC said: “We’re very happy to be working with Utilitywise.

“It’s great that a north east company is not only helping our members reduce their energy costs but is also helping them get better value for money from their energy suppliers.

“We encourage our members to try the service.”
