Business Half Hourly Electricity Tariffs

by Simon Thompson
 
In order to access the best business half hourly electricity tariffs, your firm or organisation will need half hour meters installed. For those who may not be aware, the meters are installed for large uses of electricity, typically consuming more than 100 kW of energy during a half-hour period in the day. With the meters sending this data to the electricity supplier every 30 minutes means there’s no longer a need for estimated bills and the firm will enjoy accurate billing. This information can also be utilised by the firm to pinpoint where potential energy savings can be made, for example, switching production to a cheaper time of day. However, the same consumption data can be used by a potential new half hour electricity provider to deliver a new deal based on accurate readings. Finding a new half hourly electricity quote One of the issues for having half-hour electricity meters installed is that the procurement process in finding a new half hourly electricity quote is more complex. Whereas a smaller business can simply use a variety of sources to get a new electricity quote, that’s not quite the case for large consumers. For those firms with 00 meters installed, the process to find a new half hourly electricity provider is a tad more complicated. However, the process of switching is just as straightforward. A business can simply contact their current supplier to find out what their rates will be for their next year’s contract and use the services of a broker with expertise in the sector to find a cheaper deal. Find a cheap half hourly electricity deal This is where the friendly team at D-Energi can help find a cheap half hourly electricity deal by looking at the wholesale market.

Can You Compare Business Gas Prices?

by Simon Thompson
 
It may appear to be an unusual question to ask a business owner, but can you compare business gas prices? However, the question should really ask whether you can effectively compare gas prices between business suppliers because there’s a lot of competition to attract you as a customer but finding the best deals is not always that straightforward. While you could contact a gas supplier directly, you may also be tempted to use one of the business gas comparison websites to find out whether there are cheaper suppliers available. While this process will take a few minutes, you will need to appreciate that the comparison website may only be searching a select number of potential suppliers, which means there could be better-priced deals that you will be unaware of. Also, contacting suppliers directly can be time-consuming since you will give the same details every time and there’s a risk that you will restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ business gas suppliers and the deals may be fairly similar, which may put you off from switching. Find the cheapest business gas prices available It’s this ability to search the entire marketplace to find the cheapest business gas prices available that is the offering from the experts at D-Energi. This means that a busy business owner will be able to search the entire market in order to find the best deal that is currently available for meeting their needs.

As mentioned, the business gas supply market is a competitive one and prices do fluctuate on a regular basis and you will also need to understand the various terms to enjoy the best deal possible. Tell your supplier you are leaving The best time to check whether there are better deals available is when your current provider gets in touch with your next year’s contract details since this opens a window of opportunity for you to search the market and then tell your supplier you are leaving. There is no loss of supply when you do decide to switch providers and all that changes is that your bill will come from a different business gas supplier. The team at D-Energi can also take care of the switchover process and then monitor the marketplace so that when your deal is up for renewal, they will know whether the terms being offered are the best ones for meeting your business needs, or whether a different supplier is the one to move to.
