MK Success Story: Local Small Business Champion, Electricity4business Wednesday 25 June 2008 PDF Print London, 25th June 2008 – Since Electricity4business (E4B) began trading in 2006, it’s been a rapid period of constant growth, expansion and success. Now, just two years on, this British independent electricity supplier is recognised throughout the industry as the only supplier who specialises in providing electricity to small businesses. Throughout this time E4B has secured its position as an influential opinion leader, challenging the ‘big 6’ national suppliers about the prevention of a healthy competitive wholesale market within the UK market. Championing smaller businesses has resulted in extensive national and regional media coverage making E4B a major new force to be reckoned with. Within the last year, E4B has trebled in size in its staffing levels and customer base and become one of Milton Keynes’ largest employers. Such impressive growth has led to E4B expanding into further premises in MK. With such a success comes a sense of giving back to the local community. E4B is the key sponsor for this month’s annual Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday 29th June at Willen Lake, with the focus of raising funds for the children’s hospice, Keech Cottage. E4B’s business ethic is a refreshing one within the energy industry and is simple. They don’t spend their profits on expensive deals sponsoring the cricket or the Olympics, but focus on investing in smart IT solutions aimed at keeping operational costs as low as possible. The savings made from these are then passed onto the customer, ensuring that E4B can always keep their retail prices as low as possible. And in a market of increasing energy prices; it’s just the news that small businesses everywhere want to hear. E4B’s goal is not to aspire to become one of the big energy suppliers, but to champion smaller businesses in two ways. One, by encouraging them to shop around for the best electricity prices and two, by educating SMEs on the importance of being energy efficient.
