Case Study – Shimla Indian Takeaway


Shimla Indian Takeaway is a popular food outlet based in Plymouth, Devon. The Takeaway is an authentic Indian restaurant located on Delamere Road in Eggbuckland, where they offer the finest and freshest Indian cuisine for their customers to enjoy. With the help of IU Energy, they were able to make £2,000 worth of savings on both their gas and electricity accounts.

With the growing pressures facing the takeaway industry, being able to reduce energy costs is highly beneficial…


A reduction in energy costs or usage can make a significant difference to a businesses’s bottom line – upto 5% in fact, which is the equivalent of a 20% uplift in sales. After a free, no-obligation review of Shimla’s gas and electricity bills we established that they were using a large amount of energy at uncompetitive rates. In a market that is always going upwards, the challenge is increasingly to limit those rises. In Shimla’s case, we were able to save them money as well.


IU Energy worked hard to compare the market and found that significant savings could be made. We presented a quote with different options from a range of trusted suppliers. It is IU Energy’s policy to always show the complete picture, because a low kWh rate alone does not guarantee a low bill if there are hidden pass-through charges.

In addition to saving the Takeaway money, IU Energy handled the administration of the contracts and ensured the process was seamless, taking the stress away from our client.

Throughout the process, Shimla Takeaway were given a dedicated account manager to answer all their questions, liaise with the suppliers, take care of the administration and ensure they were happy with their new agreements.


“We are really happy with the £2,000 we saved. Our account manager was brilliant – very knowledgeable and provided us with sound, useful advice. We trust IU Energy and hope to use them again when our contracts come up for renewal. They’ve helped us save both time and money.”
