Flexible energy solutions for Calderdale based businesses

The Council recently joined up with Orchard Energy to set up an energy collective - 6C. By combining the buying power of businesses and public services within Calderdale, we have negotiated a plan to purchase directly from energy companies to provide our local business users with some of the lowest priced energy in the UK.
