Water market deregulation in the UK

The aim of the open water market is to create a competitive market place in which regional monopolies no longer exist. Now that the market in England has opened up, this is a fantastic opportunity for businesses like yours to reduce their bills and improve the service they receive, by tendering for more suitable contracts.

In Scotland the retail water market for businesses has been in operation since 2008 – leading to massive increases in water efficiency. In switching suppliers, businesses in Scotland have seen a typical reduction in their bills of 20%.

The Welsh market hasn’t been deregulated, however English and Scottish suppliers are offering to manage Welsh accounts to facilitate single billing, making it easier for multi-site clients to manage their bills with a single provider.
