Save your energy ahead of #BESW2016

What better way to start Big Energy Saving Week 2016 than with a lie in on Sunday 30 October?

It’s National Lie-in Day, so make the most of that extra hour in bed when the clocks go back.

Use your extra energy to supercharge your creativity, because next week you’re busting bills.

Turn off equipment

Did you know?

A laser printer left on standby overnight costs £18.26 per year, while a desktop PC costs £3.65*. How many of these do you have in your office/workplace? In a medium-sized SME, that’s more than £2,000 wasted every year.

Give yourself peace of mind and make the most of that lie in by ensuring your business premises’ electricals are all switched off completely before leaving work. You’re saving money while you sleep!

During this week, check our blog for five business energy saving tips you haven’t heard before. A new one will be posted every day during #BESW2016.

Paul JohnsonGroup Financial Director

Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.

He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United.  He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.

Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance.  When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.


“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”

Interesting fact:

Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League.  Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.
