Lane Print slashes power bill with energy broker

The 39-year-old print company turned to Energy Action in July this year after having first using the firm to secure its power contract back in 2007.

Director Phil Lane told ProPrint that without Energy Action, “I am sure we would have seen an increase” in its energy bill.

“I was expecting we would have got an increase [but] we managed to renew at a lesser price from the same provider.

“Had we been talking to the current provider and no one else, I am sure we would have seen an increase,” added Lane.

Energy Action also made representations on the company’s behalf to their network provider to help resolve ongoing power supply issues that were negatively affecting the Lane Print’s operations.

The energy firm helped the printer identify areas to conserve energy across its plant.

According to Energy Action: “This process included receiving advice on power factor, ongoing bill validations and the active monitoring of energy use.”

Phil Lane added: “They came and did a site audit and recommend that we change the globes in our high bay lighting.”

Despite the fact that Energy Action “said that would pay for itself over 14 months”, Lane Print actually managed to write off the cost in half that time.
