How Much is Business Gas Per kWh?

by Simon Thompson
 
One of the easiest, and quickest, ways to save money as a business is to compare business gas tariffs and switch to a cheaper one. Research has shown that only around 33% of SME businesses switch their business energy supplier annually, which means that around 2.93 million companies are being overcharged. D-ENERGi has made it as easy as possible to compare business energy prices to make sure you are getting the best deal possible. We help lots of businesses every year save on their energy prices by switching business gas suppliers. We work with a variety of businesses in many different industries. What are the average business gas prices? It can be hard to say exactly what you should be paying for business gas. With prices increasing all the time it has never been more important to take control of your business energy bills and save money. Business gas prices tend to depend on several factors and are often dependent on the length of the contract. For example, a business selecting a 1-year contract will likely face paying higher rates than a business selecting a 2-year fixed-rate contract. While you may not want to tie yourself into a longer contract, the fact is they tend to offer the best prices. How are business gas prices calculated? Business gas prices are calculated in a different way to domestic gas prices and are affected by several different things, including: Business location Current spends on business gas Energy market activity Overall consumption levels Size of business premises Type of business gas meter   How do I switch business gas?

Who is the Cheapest Business Energy Supplier?

by Simon Thompson
 
The cost of business energy can easily be damaging to your business if it isn’t kept under control, which is why we have created this guide to finding cheap business energy. Most business energy suppliers will not publish a list of their tariffs as they don’t want their competitors to know too much about them, but they usually publish their deemed and out-of-contract rates. Deemed vs Out-of-Contract Rates explained What’s the difference between deemed and out-of-contract rates and how can they help you get a cheap business electricity deal? Deemed rates are the name given to the rates you are charged when you have no active contract to supply your business with energy – this usually happens when you move to new business premises. The current energy supplier will assume you want to continue with an uninterrupted supply of energy and so continue to supply the property with energy, but at a much higher price than normal. You are, therefore “deemed” to have agreed to be supplied by the previous building occupant’s energy supplier until you sign a new contract with them or switch to a new energy supplier. Out-of-contract rates are very similar to deemed rates but they come into play when your existing contract with a supplier ends and you haven’t put a new one in place, or you are consistently behind with paying your energy bills. How to get cheaper business energy Comparing prices and switching your business energy supplier is probably the best way to get cheaper business energy – whether that be business electricity or business gas. However, research has shown that only 21% of micro and small businesses switched their business suppliers last year. Meaning 79% of micro and small businesses are probably paying too much for their business energy. This seems silly, especially when it has never been easier to compare business energy suppliers online. You can do that easily through the experts at D-ENERGi. The important thing to remember is that you should never sign a new contract before you have compared suppliers and tariffs. Just by contacting D-ENERGi and asking us to get you a few quotes, you could reduce your business energy bills by up to 60%. There is no one business energy supplier who comes out as cheapest for all businesses. The rate you pay is based on various things such as Business type Location Profile class Usage   This is why it is so important to compare quotes to make sure you are getting the best deal. Contact the team at D-ENERGi today to ensure you find cheap business gas and cheap business electricity quotes.

Is Business Electricity Cheaper than Domestic?

by Simon Thompson
 
Having been a domestic energy customer for many years, most business owners will be familiar with how their home energy contracts work. But when it comes to contracts from business energy suppliers, they may not realise that there are key differences between domestic energy and business energy – and in this article, we will take a closer look at what these differences are. What are the main differences between domestic and business energy? The following points summarise the main differences between domestic energy and business energy: Energy unit price – Business energy tends to be cheaper per unit, than domestic energy (depending on your business electricity suppliers of course!) However, business energy is subject to 20% VAT while domestic energy is only 5% Business energy also has to take into account levies and energy regulations which domestic energy customers don’t have to worry about Contract terms tend to be longer for business customers than they are for domestic users You will generally need less information and get simple energy quotes as a domestic customer, whereas business energy quotes tend to be more complex and so need more information from you at the start   Is business energy cheaper than domestic energy? Following on from the information above there may be business owners out there wondering, is business energy cheaper than domestic energy? Although this seems a simple question, the answer is quite complex, and there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account. The actual electricity and gas supplied are the same for business customers as they are for domestic customers, the contracts will differ wildly for both. This is because domestic and business energy suppliers operate in different ways, and prices will vary depending on a variety of factors. Average business energy rates vs average domestic energy rates Electricity and gas prices may seem cheaper for business customers than they are for domestic users as businesses tend to pay a lower price per unit for their energy, due to the large volumes they consume leading them to economies of scale – so the larger the business the lower the unit rate. This means that most business owners are able to negotiate and choose contracts based on their particular needs, which is something that domestic customers are not able to do – they are just charged the same price as everyone else in their region. But is business energy actually cheaper overall than domestic energy? No. Not when you take into account the other charges that are then added on, such as: Levies such as the Climate Change Levy (CCL) Pricing criteria such as business size and contract length Price fluctuations with variable price contracts VAT Wholesale energy market pricing changing at renewal   Finding the best business energy deal can be a confusing and time-consuming task. But D-ENERGi is here to help. Our team of energy experts will negotiate with business electricity and business gas suppliers on your behalf and secure you the best business energy deal.
