The COVID-19 pandemic continues to hit many businesses hard, especially small businesses in the retail and restaurant sectors. For many of these companies, finding ways to cut costs and create savings is essential.
Hampshire Power, a Massachusetts Benefit Corporation whose mission is to help people, property owners, and organizations create savings and income from renewable energy, offers a no-risk way to attain savings on your electricity bills.
Hampshire Power is a leader in the Community Shared Solar program, which allows businesses hit hard by the pandemic to immediately save up to 10% off their electricity bills.
Community Shared Solar is a simple program that provides savings directly to your electric bill. We customize solutions for each business owner based on their needs and preferences. In these challenging economic times, these discounts are critical and Hampshire Power makes it easy and simple.
An Attractive Solution for All Businesses Impacted by COVID-19
Given the current economic conditions, certain business sectors may find Hampshire Power’s services especially valuable.
While online sales have soared in the wake of the pandemic, the same can’t be said of in-person shopping. One report found that clothing stores saw sales decline by an average of 44% per month since March. Furniture stores have also been hit hard with some large chain businesses closing multiple locations or declaring bankruptcy.
Restaurants and bars have also been negatively impacted by the pandemic. A study by the National Restaurant Association found that most of the restaurants surveyed are struggling to survive in the current business environment.
Other types of services like laundry, dry cleaning, pet care, parking, and dating services have also been severely impacted.
These are just a few examples, but Hampshire Power is your one-stop shop for your business energy needs and savings. Any business owner will benefit from our easy savings, top-notch customer service, and tailored approach.
