Why Switching Your Business Gas Supplier Will Save Money

by Simon Thompson
 
If you would like to know more about why switching your business gas supplier will save your firm or organisation money, then this article will help. It’s important that every firm carries out this exercise every year to ensure they do not pay more than they need to for their business gas supply but this isn’t always the case. The government has carried out a survey and found that 40% of firms have never switched energy supplier so they will have probably been rolled over onto a contract with ‘deemed rates’ which tend to be higher. It may be that the firm’s owners simply don’t have the time to carry out the search for cheaper gas prices or they are happy with their current supplier – even if they are being over-charged. It doesn’t have to be this way and in just a few minutes it is possible to find a cheaper and better business energy provider. Search for cheaper business gas rates The search for cheaper business gas rates is easier today and while you could contact a supplier directly to negotiate a better deal, there are also online comparison sites to use. The sites are an effective way of finding out what the current market rate is from a supplier for a firm with your gas needs. However, this site may not be searching the whole of the market to find the best deal that meets your needs. It’s important to understand that the switchover process will take between four and eight weeks and there’s no loss of gas supply when you undertake this process. Hunt for a lower business gas bill There’s no doubt that in the hunt for a lower business gas bill, that when you compare energy prices you and your business will save money. The amount being saved will depend on how much you use and where your firm is located. This will bring peace of mind knowing that you are not being overcharged for your gas use and this process should be carried out every time your current supplier notifies of the next year’s tariff. Also, by carrying out a comparison on an annual basis means that competition in the marketplace will be stimulated and suppliers will strive to offer lower prices as a result. This means all firms looking to switch gas providers will benefit.   For more information about why switching your business gas supplier will save money, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.

Can Your Business Save by Switching Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers?

by Simon Thompson
 
In answer to the question, ‘Can your business save by switching half hourly electricity suppliers?’ Then if you use D-Energi, it will be ‘Yes’. That’s because the team of experts has the experience to help you switch your half hourly electricity provider for lower and better rates. This is a great opportunity for you to reduce your business costs but there will be some firms who may not understand what half hourly, or HH, electricity meters are. Half hourly electricity meter A half hourly electricity meter will send your electricity usage data to the supplier every 30 minutes, hence the name ‘half hourly’ electricity. This means you will no longer receive estimated bills and your supplier, and potential suppliers will know exactly what your electricity usage levels are and when you use your energy. It is also possible to use software so you can analyse your data to see if there are easy savings to be made by using less electricity or switching your firm’s periods of peak use to an off-peak tariff that will deliver bigger cost savings. However, you will need to compare half hourly commercial suppliers to get the better deals but sourcing quotes on a like-for-like basis for HH meters can be confusing. It’s also possible for firms with more than one premises to consolidate their meters and tariffs to use just one energy provider. Lower half hour electricity prices for firms These lower half hour electricity prices tend to be for firms with high energy needs and their data should enable a potential supplier to tailor their offering to best meet that organisation’s needs. It’s also possible to use a comparison website to find a cheaper half hourly electricity provider but the website itself may not be searching the entire marketplace so you may be missing out on better deals. The best way is to contact a supplier directly or speak with the D-Energi team who will, in just a few minutes, take some details and then search for the best deals that will meet your needs. This is a great opportunity for lowering overheads and the data means that the deals offered will be tailored to your energy demands. Indeed, this is a process that all firms and organisations should undertake every year as a matter, of course, to ensure that they are never paying more than they need for their electricity supply. If you want to test whether your business can save by switching half-hourly electricity suppliers, then contact the friendly D-Energi team to find out more.

Understanding Business Energy Prices to Save

by Simon Thompson
 
While many firms and organisations will spend time finding a new energy provider, understanding how business energy prices are calculated will be helpful. That’s because a potential new supplier may offer what appears to be a great deal but on closer examination is nothing of the sort. An effective way of resolving this issue and accessing the best business energy prices is to speak with the D-Energi team. However, if you want to shop around then understanding how the costs are broken down will help but there are two important issues that you need to appreciate. Potential new business energy supplier Your potential new business energy supplier will offer a unit cost which is the price per unit of energy, calculated as kWh, that your business will use. There’s also a standing charge which is a daily cost that you must pay regardless of your energy usage. This cost is set for each kilowatt hour of energy your firm will use. It may appear that a firm offering a quote will deliver a low unit cost which may appear to be a big saving but the standing charge may increase slightly so the savings effectively disappear. There are also other issues affecting the price a potential supplier may offer and these include the amount of energy you use, your location and whether you want to sign up for a long-term contract. Switching business energy provider There’s no doubt that by switching business energy provider you will probably save substantial amounts; even a micro business can save hundreds of pounds every year. This saving will obviously depend on how much energy the firm is using but larger concerns could make savings that run into thousands of pounds. This means that carrying out a business energy comparison every year when your current supplier offers a new contract could be an effective way of reducing overheads and boosting profitability. Sadly, a survey by the government highlights that 40% of firms have never switched so they are likely to be paying a lot more for their energy when a phone call of just a few minutes will reveal what the potential savings are. Also, the switchover process is straightforward and there is no loss of supply to your business premises when you do switch to a new provider. If you want to know more about how business energy prices are calculated so you can save on your overheads, then it’s time to speak with the expert team at D-Energi.
