How to Review Your Business Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
So, you’ve spent time contacting various energy providers and now it is time to review your business electricity quote to ensure you get the best deal. But how do you do this effectively and ensure that you source the best price possible? Well, unless you search the entire market of business gas providers, it’s unlikely that you will have found the cheapest possible deal. You may have: Used a business gas comparison site to do a quick search, but the site usually restricts their search to a panel of select suppliers Or, you may have contacted providers individually but it’s unlikely you will have contacted every single one of them supplying gas to UK businesses.   Searching for the cheapest business energy quote There’s an easy way to get around this issue when searching for the cheapest business energy quote, and that is to speak with the D-Energi experts. Unlike a business energy comparison website, the team can search the entire market to source the cheapest supplier and then explain the contract and take care of the paperwork for a seamless transition process. It’s also worth highlighting that when using a comparison platform, you will still need to negotiate directly with the recommended supplier because they need to offer you a bespoke quote. That means the platform is not as quick as you had hoped or as effective because they will only contact a select number of providers. The best time to begin this process is when your current energy provider tells you of what your next year’s rates will be and this should then nudge you into action to find a cheaper deal. Failing to act may see you being moved across to dearer rates automatically. Cheap business gas quote This situation also extends to those firms looking for a cheap business gas quote when they need to renew. And while most firms and organisations are spending less on their gas overheads, it’s still worth the time searching for a cheaper provider because: You will ensure that you are not overpaying for your business gas needs and boosting profitability as a result You will also be helping to stimulate competition within the UK’s business gas supply market by simply searching for a new deal. While there will undoubtedly be business owners who think this is a time-consuming undertaking to find a new business gas and electricity provider, it really is not. And that’s the case when you use the experts at D-Energi who can help you review your business electricity quote, and for gas, to ensure it’s as good as it can possibly be.

The other issue you have is that you will need to compare bespoke deals between providers to ensure you get the best possible business gas tariff. Business gas supply market in the UK However, if you are not searching the entire business gas supply market in the UK, how will you know that you have found the best provider on that day, offering the best deal? The answer is, you won’t. In addition to finding business gas providers, you also need to appreciate the difference between: The unit rate: This is the amount you pay for the gas consumed and is measured in pence per kilowatt-hour This should not be confused with the standing charge, which is an amount you pay for gas to be delivered to your premises. This charge is not a set amount and can vary by a very big amount between suppliers. Not appreciating the second point may mean you spend more on your business gas overheads than you currently do because you did not take time to calculate what the potential new contract will cost over a full year. That’s not the case when you use the experts at D-Energi who can find your next business gas supplier in just a few minutes.

Find the BEST Business Electricity Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
Since your firm will be relying on its energy supply, it makes sense that you should find the best business electricity rates currently available. Whether you’re using energy to operate essential equipment or computers, you will be needing a business energy supplier who is not only offering reasonable tariffs but also a reliable service. And by switching to a better energy deal for your business, you will be ensuring that you are not paying more than is necessary for your firm’s energy needs. However, commercial energy contracts are set up differently to the ones we have for our homes, so the rates are not only different but there’s no dual fuel option either. Business electricity tariffs will be created on a bespoke basis It’s important to appreciate that business electricity tariffs will be created on a bespoke basis to meet your firm’s needs. This means that the supplier will look closely at your annual consumption and what your firm’s needs are. It’s also important to appreciate that no two businesses are alike, which helps explain why another firm in your industry may be paying different prices to you. That’s because: The geographic location of your firm is important How many staff you employ is also crucial What your current and future needs are likely to be will have an influence And whether you have plans to expand or even move premises.   These questions, and more, will help a supplier understand your firm’s needs more clearly and the industry you work in will also be important. However, don’t be alarmed should a supplier refuse to quote – it might be that they don’t supply energy to your area. Search for a cheaper business electricity supplier However, in the search for a cheaper business electricity supplier for meeting your needs, the team at D-Energi is available to help you through what can be a complicated process. And it can be complicated if you contact suppliers directly or even try to compare business electricity suppliers online because you will still need to contact the provider to discuss your bespoke needs. In addition, you need to be aware of whether the comparison site looking at small business electricity prices is checking the entire market or simply asking a panel of providers to offer a deal. That’s not the case when you contact the team at D-Energi who can help you find the best business electricity rates for your current and future needs and do so quickly, so contact them today to find out more.
