Saving Time and Energy for Schools: Case Study

How Stratford Upon Avon School Academy saves time with the Yü Energy portal


Stratford upon Avon School

Introducing Stratford Upon Avon School 

Stratford Upon Avon School is an academy in the heart of Warwickshire, providing a broad spectrum of GCSE and A-level options for 11 to 18 year olds. They are passionate about ensuring students are supported, challenged and inspired throughout their education, underpinned by a genuine feel-good factor throughout the school.

 The Challenges 

Managing energy consumption in a school can be tricky; there are classrooms to light and heat, meals to cook, and activities to provide. Amongst all of the organisation involved in running a school, tracking energy usage is just one more thing to add to the list. 

Stratford Upon Avon School were tracking their energy consumption by manually referring back to invoices. This required leafing through old paper work and checking the consumption detailed on their bills – a process that took time they felt could be better spent elsewhere. 

 “We had to rely on receiving the invoice each month to determine usage but now we can access the billing info at any time online.” – Phil Whisson, Stratford Upon Avon School

The Solution 

The Yü Energy portal was created to help provide the best experience for our energy customers. With the option to quickly submit meter readings, make payments, view bills, and see your account history all in one place, it makes it super simple to manage your energy. 

Stratford Upon Avon School first tried portal after seeing our £500 energy credit prize draw (keep your eyes on your inbox for more offers like this!). For them, the ease of a dashboard where they could view all of their bills and account history in one place, was a real hook. 

“Many of our other suppliers use an online portal which works well for invoicing. However, the chance to win a £500 prize was also enticing!” 

As well as viewing their billing information, Stratford Upon Avon School can now quickly submit meter readings, helping to reduce estimated billings, and make payments directly through the portal. Having all of these features in one place helps to save admin time, and makes it easy to find important information when they need it.

The Outcome 

Stratford Upon Avon School can now find all of their billing information at the click of a button, and accurately monitor their energy usage.  

“We used to input the usage figures into a manual spreadsheet. We still do this but now we can check it more accurately.” 

Being able to check historical billing is their favourite thing about the portal, and helps reduce the admin time associated with their energy management. 

“It saves time in the sense that all the billing information is there when you need to refer back to it.”
