How Do You Know If You Are Paying Too Much For Your Business Electricity?

by Simon Thompson
 
Recent statistics released by Ofgem reveal that nearly 40% of SME’s haven’t tried to compare business energy supplier in over five years! This is a shocking statistic to us, as it means that a large proportion of businesses out there are probably paying over the odds for their electricity and gas – and there is no need for that! Comparing and switching suppliers with the help of D-ENERGI is such a simple task! Why might businesses be reluctant to switch energy supplier? We’ve talked to a lot of customers who want to compare business gas and electricity prices this year, and when we ask them why it’s taken them so long to decide to do so they say things like; “I haven’t had time” Time is one of our most valuable commodities – especially if you charge your customers by the hour. Your time is worth a lot, and you may think that it is more sensible for you to spend this valuable time doing things that will generate sales for your business, and therefore more profit for you. However, if you can spare us just ten minutes – yes, just ten minutes – we can take control of searching the market and finding the best quotes for you, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds in the process. “I don’t know how to do it” This is a poor excuse, as you don’t really have to do anything. Just fill in our quick quote form, and we will call you straight back with the best quotes on the market. It’s as simple as that! “I don’t really understand the prices” Some business owners are embarrassed that they don’t really understand what makes up their energy bill – but actually, it is quite common. We know all about ‘standing charges’ and ‘Kilowatts’ as we deal with them every day – but many people don’t have a clue what we are talking about. So, let’s explain: • Standing charges – the small amount per day you pay the supplier regardless of how much energy you use? This can be as much as 70p a day, which is a staggering £175 a year, so you want to make sure this is as low as possible. • KWh – this stands for Kilowatt per hour and usually, one unit on your meter will equate to one kWh. Again, prices for this will vary so it is best to shop around. “My business will suffer if my energy supply is disrupted” The team at D-ENERGi will take care of everything for you, so you won’t see any disruption in service when it comes to switching suppliers. So, what are you waiting for? If you want to compare business electricity or business gas, or both, just head over to our website and fill in our quick form today for a free, no-obligation quote.

Top Energy Savings Tips for Businesses

by Simon Thompson
 
If the cost of your business energy bill is making you think it might be time to swap business energy suppliers then you’re not alone. A recent survey by the Federation of small business highlighted that: • One-third of businesses surveyed felt that the cost of energy was a barrier to the growth of their company • 70% of businesses surveyed found it difficult to compare business energy tariffs. • 43% of businesses surveyed had never switched their business energy supplier. But don’t worry, there are small actions you can take to save on your business electricity and gas bills without the need for your employees to sit in the dark with no heating on! Check out our top energy-saving tips: Tip One: Turn the big light off It’s may remind you of your childhood when your dad used to tell you to turn lights off when they were not in use, but we are sorry to say he is right! Research by business electricity suppliers has shown that you could save up to £100 a year by turning off lights when they are not in use. You could even up the amount you save by switching from halogen or fluorescent bulbs to more energy-efficient LED ones. Tip Two: Keep the heat in Lighting isn’t the only culprit when it comes to large energy bills – the other is heating. Some things that you should check include: • Making sure your heating system and air conditioning system are not set to the same temperature (they should be around 4 degrees difference) and on at the same time • Set your thermostats lower in corridors and storerooms than in offices • Make sure radiators are not blocked by office furniture Tip Three: Keep it clean Clean kitchen appliances are not only safer for employees but they are also more energy-efficient as well. Pull your fridge out from the wall, and remove the dust from behind it on a regular basis – and you could see up to a 20% drop in the amount of energy used. It’s also worth dusting lightbulbs and cleaning radiators regularly as well. Tip Four: Switch off technology when not in use 46% of the energy used in offices is used outside of standard opening hours. 46%! This is why it is really important that employees turn off desktops, printers, and vending machines when they are not in use – I.e., when they go home at night or for the weekend! Tip Five: Compare business energy suppliers The biggest savings on your business gas and electricity bills, however, are probably going to come from you swapping business energy suppliers to one who offers you a better tariff. While this may sound like a time-consuming thing to do – it isn’t. It is a fairly quick and simple process if you use the D-ENERGI team to help, as we are experts at saving businesses money on their energy bills. If you want to know how much you could save on your business energy bill by comparing business electricity and business gas suppliers get in touch with D-ENERGi today.

How to Save on Business Electricity?

by Simon Thompson
 
A great time to see if you can save on business electricity is if you are moving to new business premises – this can help prevent you from paying over the odds. What will happen if I don’t compare business energy prices? If you move to new business premises without taking the time to compare business energy per kWh prices, then you may end up paying the previous tenant’s business energy supplier at an ‘out of contract rate’ which tends to be very high. How can I get a better business energy deal? Make sure that you take the time to perform a business energy comparison before you move premises, and make the switch to a cheaper supplier as soon as possible. If you use both business electricity and business gas then make sure you get a quote for both.

How to Find the Cheapest Business Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
It is a fairly obvious fact that businesses will tend to use more electricity than households, and energy is also much more important to them as well. If you are a business who has suffered from a power cut, then you will know that it cannot only impact your credibility but your bottom line as well. This is why when it comes to comparing energy suppliers, it shouldn’t just be about the cheapest business electricity prices, but amazing customer service as well. You need to know that they have your back, and will get any issues resolved in record time. When you use D-ENERGi to help you to compare business energy suppliers, therefore, we won’t just look at who the cheapest business electricity supplier is, but also who is offering the right level of customer service for your business – saving you not only money but potential headaches as well. When it comes to comparing suppliers, it is hard to give you an exact amount on how much you could potentially save because your quote will be based on individual items such as your business size, how many staff you have, and how your business is run. We have been doing this for over 19 years though, so we know our stuff, and will work really hard to get you the most competitive quote out there. Switching energy suppliers when you are a business customer isn’t as simple as if you have switched your home energy supplier. Yes, your electricity and gas will still come through the same pipes (as they do at home) but as a business, you can’t change supplier willy nilly, you have to wait until you have entered your contracts “switching window” which is usually somewhere around one to six months before the end of your contract. Once you have entered the “switching window” you should definitely do a business energy price comparison so that you have your new tariff and contract lined up and ready to go when your existing contract ends. If you want to find the cheapest business electricity rates UK you just need to get in touch with the D-ENERGi team. Just fill in the quick form on our website and we will call you straight back with the best quotes on the market – whether you are looking for business electricity, business gas, or both.
