How to Get A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
The process to get a cheaper business electricity supplier is not only straightforward but it’s also a simple one as well. The government is encouraging more firms to switch electricity suppliers on a regular basis which will help lower prices and also stimulate competition in the marketplace as suppliers compete to offer the very best prices. Unfortunately, a government survey has revealed that 40% of firms and organisations in the UK haven’t bothered to switch their electricity supplier so they are likely to be paying more than they should be doing for their electricity needs. Indeed, this comparison exercise between business electricity suppliers should be carried out every year to ensure your firm is not overpaying on its energy bills. And considering it can only take a few minutes to carry out, the potential returns make this a financially attractive undertaking. Find cheaper business electricity rates The process to find cheaper business electricity rates could see a firm contacting providers directly or using one of the online comparison sites. The first course of action may be time-consuming and there may be better deals out there, particularly if your search is restricted to the ‘big six’ energy providers because they may offer similar deals. The second course of action also has issues as the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace so there may be better providers available with lower tariffs and you’ll still need to speak with the provider recommended by the site. That is because all electricity providers need to offer a bespoke deal to ensure it meets the needs of the business or organisation. Finding cheaper and better business electricity prices It’s this element of finding cheaper and better business electricity prices that makes comparing quotes on a like-for-like basis difficult. Despite this, there is a potential for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds every year with larger firms potentially saving several thousands of pounds to make this an exercise worth undertaking. And let’s not forget that most business owners simply don’t have a lot of time to spare when it comes to comparing business energy quotes because they can spend the time doing something more effective within the business.   However, with just one phone call to the team of experts at D-Energi, it is possible to find out how you can get a cheaper business electricity supplier and save money on your overheads.

Are You On The Best Business Energy Prices?

by Simon Thompson
 
Unless you scour the commercial energy market on a regular basis, how will you know if you are on the best business energy prices for your needs? The simple answer is, that you won’t do. That’s a shame when there are lots of providers offering a range of deals and tariffs that will help firms to reduce their overheads by providing cheaper energy for their needs. Sourcing a new provider is simple and straightforward and encouraged by the government to help stimulate competition in the electricity supply market. A new business energy supplier Finding a new business energy supplier can be done when your current provider gets in touch with details of what your next year’s contract rates will be. You could contact suppliers directly but you’ll need to give each of the details of your current usage and this can be a time-consuming and frustrating process. An easy way is to use an online comparison site to check a range of suppliers to see whether there are big savings to be made; the issue here is that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace so there may be better deals and offers available. One easier way and this will take just a few minutes, is to contact the D-Energi team who can check the whole market for business energy and find a deal that will suit you and save you a substantial amount of money. Switch their business energy provider According to the watchdog Ofgem, most firms will save around £300 on average every year when they switch their business energy provider. Indeed, the D-Energi team can take care of the seamless process and there’s no loss of supply to a firm’s premises when they decide to switch providers. There are larger savings to be made should a firm decide to sign up for more than one year but some providers also offer a consultancy to help the firm use less energy and reduce their bills even further. The consultancy will also look at how and when the firm is using energy and make recommendations to bring usage levels down and also the possibility of investing in newer energy saving equipment to replace older items that use a lot of energy.   If you would like to find the best energy prices to help you reduce overheads, then the team of experts at D-Energi can help.

How to Swap to Cheaper Commercial Electricity Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s important that all firms and organisations are not paying more than they need to for their energy needs and they’re able to swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates if so. Indeed, the sector’s watchdog Ofgem recommends firms compare energy deals and tariffs regularly to help ensure they are on the right deal for them. This is something of an issue since a government survey revealed recently that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching their energy providers. This means they’ve probably been moved onto more expensive deals automatically when they can find cheaper tariffs in just a few minutes. A cheaper commercial electricity quote Sourcing a cheaper commercial electricity quote can be done easily by either contacting electricity providers directly, giving them a few details and see what they have to offer for your business. The firm can also use an online comparison site to search more easily for a cheaper energy provider. However, the comparison site may not search the whole of the market so there may be better and cheaper deals available that the firm won’t get to hear about. This comparison site process should reveal the cheaper tariffs though a lot depends on the firm’s location, how much energy they use and they could utilise the information to negotiate a better deal with their current provider. However, it’s important that they do act when their current supplier contacts them with details of the following year’s energy contract prices because this is the prompt they need to switch energy providers. Finding cheaper electric prices will reduce overheads There’s no doubt that by finding cheaper electric prices will help reduce overheads and boost profitability and the process is not daunting. Indeed, the switchover process is not only simple but it’s seamless so there’s no loss of electricity supply to the premises when this is undertaken. It’s also possible for a firm with several premises to have just one supplier and one bill covering all of their outlets. Firms could also find cheaper prices if they want to sign up for more than a year’s contract, which might be a good idea if you believe electric prices may rise over the short term.   If you would like to know more about how you can swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates and deal with experts with lots of experience in doing so, then it’s time to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi.

Finding the Most Suitable and Cheapest Gas Tariff

by Simon Thompson
 
If your current business gas supplier has been in touch to tell you what your next year’s rates will be, then this is a great time to find the most suitable and cheapest gas tariff for your needs. It may mean searching the entire market to find a new supplier and then switching to them but this is a seamless process and there is no loss of gas supply when you do so. One of the big attractions for switching to a cheaper gas tariff is that there are big savings to enjoy and the savings will depend on the size of your business. However, even a one-man band could save hundreds of pounds every year while larger concerns could save thousands of pounds by switching to a new provider. Compare business gas prices between potential suppliers A big part of this is to compare business gas prices between potential suppliers but you’ll need to ensure that you search the whole of the market to find a deal that suits you. One of the downsides for some online comparison sites is they don’t search all of the potential suppliers and you’ll still need to speak with a recommended supplier directly because they must offer a bespoke deal. It’s also important that you understand the difference between standing charges and unit rates which is the cost of supplying energy and the costs you pay for maintaining the network for gas to be supplied. These details will be on your gas bills and they will help you understand what a potential supplier is offering; while a new provider may offer a cheaper unit rate they may charge more for their standing charge. This means there are no savings to be made, so it’s something to be aware of. Search for the cheapest gas tariff In this search for the cheapest gas tariff there are other issues to consider as well since a new provider may offer a consultancy service to help you reduce the amount of gas you use so they can help deliver even greater savings. It also helps to speak with the D-Energi team who understand how the business gas supply market works and will, in a few minutes, be able to source a gas tariff that will best meet your business needs. It’s also worth noting that many firms and organisations may be reluctant to deal with a gas supplier they may never have heard of previously – that’s to be expected but they should also be wary if they only check with the ‘Big Six’ gas suppliers as their offers may be similar.   For more help and information about finding the most suitable and cheapest gas tariff for your firm’s needs, then you should contact the D-Energi team today.
