How to Switch Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
It may have been a long time since your business looked at your energy overheads but it is easy to switch business energy suppliers and enjoy lower bills. Indeed, your business may never have looked at switching previously and you’ll be among the 40% of firms that a government survey revealed had never switched energy suppliers. However, the government is keen for increasing competition in the marketplace which will lead to lower bills so all firms should be looking every year to see whether they can get a better deal for their energy supply elsewhere. The easiest and simplest way to find low prices and undertake the switchover process is to speak with the D-Energi team who can do this in a few minutes. Alternatively, you could search the marketplace for yourself. Switching business electricity suppliers The first issue that will become apparent should you undertake a search is that switching business electricity suppliers is not quite as straightforward as it is for our homes. The first problem is that it is more difficult to carry out a like-for-like comparison between potential suppliers since they must offer a bespoke deal that will meet your business needs. The other issue is that you may have been rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract and until you research the marketplace you may not be aware just how much more you are paying for your energy needs than you should be doing. That’s not the fault of your energy supplier since they may have contacted you before the rollover contract started. They are also under no obligation to offer their best rates on their deemed contract. Switching business gas suppliers While this does sound to be rather unfair, the same situation applies when switching business gas suppliers. Again, their contracts come up for renewal every year and all firms and organisations should check the marketplace to ensure they are on the best possible deal. And, let’s face facts, it is possible for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds by switching while larger firms can save thousands of pounds within minutes. However, it is also important that you cannot switch suppliers in the middle of a contract without paying a penalty and you should switch during a window of opportunity. You could sign up with a new supplier for between one and three years at lower rates. By doing this you will be helping your future cash flow forecasts because you will know what your energy bills are likely to be. With energy costs set to continue rising, this is an effective way for a business to save money.   So, if you want to know how to switch business energy suppliers to enjoy lower energy bills, then it’s time to contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will find a deal to suit you and your business needs.

by Simon Thompson
 
How easy is it to find the cheapest business electricity supplier? Well, if you use D-Energi, very easy indeed. That’s because the friendly team of business energy market experts has access to the latest deals and prices that will meet your business needs. Alternatively, you could also visit various supplier websites and contact them directly to find what their best deals are.

Finding the cheapest business electricity prices If you have never done it before, finding the cheapest business electricity prices is not that straightforward a process when doing it for yourself. That’s because a supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal that will meet your firm’s needs which essentially makes carrying out a direct comparison between suppliers a difficult task. In addition, when visiting comparison websites or a potential supplier’s site, what appears to be a great deal may not be so when you calculate what you’re potential future energy bills will be. In addition, while a new supplier may offer a lower daily standing charge they may be charging more per unit of electricity or gas used so you need to be wary and not commit to a new contract on the phone. That’s because there is no cooling off period for a business contract so you may be lumbered with a more expensive energy supply than your current one. Finding the cheapest business electricity rates UK This issue of finding the cheapest business electricity rates UK also means you may need to spend more time than you want to have to research the market, understand the terms and then work out a new supplier’s offering. The easiest and simplest way to access cheap business energy prices is to speak with D-Energi team and they can scour the market in just a few minutes to find a deal that will meet your needs. It’s important that all businesses and organisations carry out an energy costs comparison every year, preferably when their renewal notice lands to see whether there are better prices and deals available. This means the business is making an effort to ensure they are not paying more than it needs to for their electricity or gas supply. It also means the firm’s overheads will probably be reduced every year as a result.   If you or your firm is looking to find the cheapest business electricity supplier then speak with the friendly D-Energi team to find out what they can do for you.

How to Compare Business Electricity Prices Per Kwh

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses and organisations should be looking to reduce their overheads and one way is to compare business electricity prices per kWh. Indeed, the same method can be applied to your business gas supplies well and you’ll need to look at your bill as the first step. Your business electricity bill will have a standing charge and also the cost per unit, the kWh. So, using this information you can then run a business energy comparison with other potential suppliers. You can do this easily using an online comparison website. Looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh However, just as a word of warning when looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh, you need to appreciate that the website may not be searching the entire market so cheaper suppliers may not be highlighted. Also, you will need to understand that a standing charge is an amount that is charged every day to cover the supplier’s costs in delivering the supply to your premises. The unit charge, or kilowatt-hour charge, is for every unit of energy the business uses. A potential supplier may offer a lower standing charge then your current supplier but their unit charge may be higher so there’s no real effective saving; you will need to sit down and work out carefully what each supplier is really offering. Calculate business gas prices per kWh As mentioned previously, you can use the same comparison website to calculate your business gas prices per kWh to source a new supplier. However, you may not appreciate that business energy suppliers can offer much more than lower prices and while we all want to lower our overheads, there may be some appeal in some of the other benefits. For example, they may offer a personal account manager or even online account management to operate your account effectively. Some suppliers may also offer an energy consultancy so not only will you enjoy cheaper bills than your current supplier but you may also reduce consumption to lower your bills even further.   Essentially, if you’re looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh then it is a good place to start online but speaking with the experts at D-Energi will enable you to search the entire market in just a few minutes – saving you valuable time – and also offer other potential extra benefits as well.

Why Your Firm Should Compare Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
There are lots of reasons why your firm should compare energy prices and the main one is to ensure you are not paying more than you need to for your energy needs. It’s also a straightforward process to compare offers and deals with suppliers in various ways including visiting comparison websites or speaking with the experts at D-Energi. Since most firms will be relying on their energy supply to operate, it’s important that you engage with how the business energy market works so you can switch suppliers if necessary. It’s also important that you do not simply renew with your current supplier’s offer but check the market to see what competitors are offering; as mentioned previously, the switchover process is straightforward. Along with a few bits of information, you will need to understand more about business energy prices. New supplier will be quoting their business electricity rates per kWh Firstly, a potential new supplier will be quoting their business electricity rates per kWh (kilowatt hour) which may appear to be daunting and confusing. It’s really not. Indeed, your first question may be what is a kilowatt hour? It’s essentially what the supplier will call a unit of energy to help determine how much your business is using over a set period of time. One kWh unit will be 1,000 Watts used over one hour. It’s also important not to get confused with the term kilowatts (kW) since this is a unit of power whereas kWh is the unit of energy. Understanding business energy prices per kWh It’s also important that understanding business energy prices per kWh will help you understand the potential quote more easily; some suppliers may charge a low unit price but have a hefty standing charge instead. This means that what appears to be a good saving with a low kWh charge is nothing of the sort once the standing charge is added. All quotes should be compared and calculated in a similar way. It’s also important to appreciate that while both gas and electricity suppliers will use the same terminology, electricity is much more expensive than gas and this is something to appreciate when comparing business energy suppliers.   If your firm is looking to compare energy prices to save money, then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi who have access to all of the latest offers from business suppliers and they can help explain any terminology and take care of the switchover process as well.
