So the Good News is that launderettes in England will be able to change providers of water supply and sewerage services from April 2017, as is already the case in Scotland. This should hopefully lead to lower prices and better service, NALI hopes. The downsides, of course, are that we will have a flood (sorry) of new energy-brokers & supply consultants telephoning shops and owners, and probably the need to remember when to re-negotiate contracts to avoid penalties. Here is a link to the official website, www.open-water.org.uk, or contact your current provider for more information. Unfortunately for launderettes in Wales this only applies to businesses using over 50 million litres pa there for the moment.
