ENERGY management consultancy Orchard Energy has agreed deals with two of the region’s tourist attractions to help them control energy costs.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park at Bretton and Cannon Hall Farm at Cawthorne are the latest new client wins for the Elland-based firm, which advises on efficiency and purchasing.

“Like any business, tourism venues can make a big impact on their overheads by buying strategically and having the right energy contract in place for their needs,” said Gareth Henderson, managing director of Orchard Energy.

The firm’s other tourism sector clients include the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, Harewood near Leeds and Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
