Tips for a Business Energy Comparison in 2020

by Simon Thompson
 
For a busy business owner, these tips to carry out a successful business energy comparison exercise in 2020 will prove fruitful. There’s no doubt that finding the best small business energy prices is no easy task when the business owner has to focus on their everyday tasks. The situation is compounded by the fact that the UK’s business energy supply market is a competitive one, and they all have their own contracts and prices so trying to compare the deals is difficult. Essentially, the main aim of any business energy comparison exercise is to find the cheapest energy prices that are currently available. Carry out a business electricity comparison exercise For example, if you need to carry out a business electricity comparison exercise then there are three ways of doing this. They are: You could contact electricity providers individually but with more than 50 suppliers to choose from this can become complicated and time-consuming You could use a website to compare business electricity prices online which are a popular and great way to find the market rate for your needs. These price comparison sites do not usually check the entire market Or you could contact the experts at D-Energi to carry out the small business electricity price comparison for you to find the best current deals. Carry out a business gas comparison exercise These tips also extend to those firms wanting to carry out a business gas comparison exercise as well and though you may be spending less on your firm’s gas bill, this will be time well spent. The bottom line is that profitability will increase because you will not be paying more than is necessary for your firm’s electricity and gas needs. However, you will need to act when your current provider gets in touch with your next contract details to see whether there are better and cheaper deals available elsewhere. It’s highly likely that there will be and in just a few minutes you can find out what savings can be enjoyed if you speak with the D-Energi team. The benefit of this is that they will check the entire market on your behalf and also take care of the paperwork for a seamless switchover procedure.

Need to Review Your Business Electricity Quote?

by Simon Thompson
 
Have you have just received your business electricity quote from your provider and want to review it to ensure you’re not overpaying? Then this article is aimed at helping you make sure you never pay more than is necessary for your electricity or gas needs. Firstly, it’s important that when your energy contract is up for renewal that you search the market because failing to act could see you being moved onto a ‘deemed’ rate contract which are usually pricier than those offered to new customers. In addition, it’s this activity of searching the market that helps to boost competition and which consequently helps all businesses in the UK enjoy lower electricity bills. Finding a new business gas quote This issue of searching the market also extends to finding a new business gas quote for meeting your firm’s needs. And while businesses will be spending a lot less on their gas bill, it’s still worth spending the time finding a cheaper quote from a potential provider. However, there is one easy way to search the market and have experts deal with the switchover process, and that’s to speak with the team at D-Energi. They have years of experience in helping firms like yours access lower gas and electricity rates, which will then boost profitability. A new business energy quote Sourcing a new business energy quote is straightforward and if you decide to do this yourself, there are two routes available: You could contact business energy providers directly, give a few details and receive a quote. You’ll then need to spend time comparing these quotes effectively to make sure you are saving money. You could use a business energy price comparison website but it’s unlikely they are searching the whole market and you’ll still need to negotiate with the recommended supplier. Essentially, the easiest way of searching the entire business energy supply market is to have D-Energi do this for you and you could also find out whether there are other incentives such as having a dedicated account manager to help run your business energy accounts. Many businesses will also benefit from having an energy consultancy that will not only reduce consumption levels but boost the firm’s green credentials.

The Best Way to Find Cheap Business Gas Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
Perhaps the best way to find cheap business gas rates is to compare suppliers effectively. Here, we explain how you can do this, though the easiest and best way is to speak with the experts at D-Energi first to see how cheap a gas deal they can arrange for your business. However, it’s also important to appreciate that a micro-business will be able to access cheaper deals than other businesses, though they will need to employ fewer than 10 employees to meet the criteria. In addition, should you be rolled onto a more expensive contract because you didn’t act in time, these are known as deemed rates, then it’s possible you may be able to leave this contract without paying a penalty as a micro-business. Search for a new business gas supplier When you begin the search for a new business gas supplier, you should understand that the gas prices being offered consist of two costs. They are: The unit price: this is the amount that your firm pays for the actual gas consumed. It will be expressed as pence per kilowatt hour and it’s a variable amount being charged. This means that the more gas you use, the more expensive your bill will be. Standing charge: The standing charge is a fixed amount and it’s usually expressed as a price per day, and this remains unchanged regardless of how much gas your firm is using. However, we mention these charges because it’s important to understand the difference when you come to compare business gas suppliers because the standing charge may be much higher without you realising that this will then affect the amount you can save. Deemed business gas rates We’ve also mentioned out of contract or ‘deemed’ business gas rates and we should explain more about these. You run the risk of being moved automatically to a more expensive contract if you do nothing when your supplier tells you of your renewal terms. This is the incentive that many businesses will need to find out whether there are cheap deals available for their business gas supply on the market. Deemed rates tend to be much more expensive though if yours is a micro-business, you should be able to move from these automatic out of contract prices more easily than small and medium-sized firms will without having to pay a penalty. If you need to know more about the best way to find cheap business gas rates for your firm, then you need to speak with the team at D-Energi today.

A Checklist for Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
If your supply contract is up for renewal and you looking for new half hourly electricity suppliers, then this checklist will help. Not every firm will be needing half hourly electricity providers since these cheap prices are restricted to very large consumers. That’s one of the reasons why any firm with more than 100 kW capacity must have half hourly meters fitted. While these are not smart meters, they do work in a similar fashion and will send your consumption data to your electricity provider every 30 minutes. This means that are no manual readings needed and there are no estimated bills since the data means your bills will be accurate too. The aim of half hourly meters is to help big users of energy bring their electricity bills down. Have a half hourly electricity meter installed If you’re not sure whether you have a half hourly electricity meter installed, then you need to check it and it will have a supplier (S) number on the front to illustrate whether it’s a half hourly meter or not. If the meter number also starts with ‘00’, then yes, you have a half hourly meter installed. The P272 regulation is the relevant legislation that highlights that these meters are a mandatory requirement for all large energy consumers. And if your business is moving to new premises as a large user then you should check beforehand that there is a half hourly meter fitted. Access cheaper half hourly electricity prices One of the big attractions for having these meters, along with the ability to access cheaper half hourly electricity prices, is that the data being recorded can be used by a potential provider. Indeed, all potential half hourly electricity suppliers can analyse the data consumption and then tailor their offering to meet your own specific needs. On top of this, you can also use special software to analyse how and when you consume energy and look to introducing ways of using less. Alternatively, you could sign up with a half hourly electricity provider offering an energy consultancy to help you reduce your consumption levels and deliver even bigger savings. Other incentives being offered by providers include having a dedicated account manager to help you run the account effectively. For more information about sourcing half hourly electricity suppliers, then you should speak with the experts at D-Energi who can also source a cheaper provider on your behalf.
