Better Lighting Solutions Are Coming!

Many BBP members have been calling the BBP team and asking for advice in response to the recent increase to their business power bill. To reduce long term exposure to rising utility bills, one way BBP members can save money is by investing in energy efficient lighting.   

To assist with this, BBP is planning to undertake a competitive process to appoint preferred suppliers who can provide robust advice and competitive prices on quality energy efficient lighting. We look forward to providing energy efficient lighting options in the near future for the consideration of our members.
