Back in 2008, Scotland became the first country in Europe to deregulate its water market, granting non-domestic property owners the choice as to which company supplies their water services. Following in its footsteps the England water market was deregulated on 1st April 2017 allowing a further 1.2 million eligible businesses and other non-household customers to be able to choose the company who supplies their services.

The idea behind opening the water market to competition is to allow the industry to hopefully see improved efficiency and lower prices for customers.

The water network continues to be operated and maintained by regional wholesalers selling water and sewerage services to business water companies such as Clear Business.

How does this affect me?

The introduction of competition in the English and Scottish water industries affects all businesses including charities and non-profit organisations. Non-domestic customers can now choose the water supplier that best suits their needs, which has led to greater competitiveness in terms of pricing, services offered and industry innovation.
