Find Commercial Energy Prices That Cut Your Costs

by Simon Thompson
 
One of the most important aspects of running a business or organisation is to ensure that overheads do not get out of hand and finding cheap commercial energy prices will help cut costs. While this may appear to be a time-consuming exercise for a business to undertake, it is possible to save up to 20% on your current energy bills by simply switching suppliers. This is particularly the case if you have never switched or haven’t switched in recent years because your current supplier will probably have moved you onto a deemed contract which tends to have much higher rates. If this situation covers you and your business, then you are not alone because a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched energy suppliers and are probably paying more than they should be doing for their energy costs. Source a commercial energy quote from providers There’s no doubt that it’s much easier to source a commercial energy quote from providers today and you can contact suppliers directly or use an online comparison site. Both will be wanting similar information from you, including where your business is located, how many people you employ and the type of industry you are in, so they can offer a bespoke deal. It will also be a good idea to have recent bills to hand so a potential supplier can use your meter number to find your exact location. Also, if you have half hourly meters installed, then a potential supplier can use the data generated by this meter to offer a great deal. Source a new commercial energy quote every year Some business owners may not source a new commercial energy quote every year because they may find it confusing or too time-consuming doing so. However, with help from those who understand how the business energy supply market in the UK works, this situation is made much easier. The team at D-Energi can discuss what your options are, explain the details of a potential contract and search the entire marketplace to find a new supplier which is something an online comparison site is probably not doing. In addition, they can talk about other discounts being offered by providers and the potential of an energy consultancy to reduce your energy bills even further. For more help and information about finding commercial energy prices that will cut your costs, then get in touch with the experts at D-Energi.

What You Need to Know to Compare Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are a business owner, then switching energy suppliers offers an opportunity to reduce costs and one way is to compare business energy deals effectively. This will mean searching the marketplace for the deal that best meets your needs and then switching to the new provider. But why compare business electricity prices when you may not have the time for doing so? The main reason is to ensure that you and your business is not paying more than you should be doing for your energy needs, and this exercise should be done every year to avoid being rolled over onto a deemed contract by your current provider which usually have higher rates. Compare business electricity prices When a business owner needs to compare business electricity prices, you could use an online site which saves time because they’ll be using your details to contact a range of suppliers in one go. This means you will not be spending a long time on the phone speaking with individual suppliers plus it’s an easy way to find out what a potential new provider may offer. However, any firm using a comparison site needs to appreciate that they may not be searching all of the potential energy suppliers and you will still need to contact directly the firm that is recommended. That’s because the supplier is obliged to provide a bespoke quote that will meet your needs. Compare business gas quotes Busy business owners could also use these comparison sites to compare business gas quotes between providers. As with electricity, the gas provider will need to know where your business is located, how many people you employ and the industry you operate in. In addition, they will need to know your meter number so they will have the exact location of your premises; it may also help to have a recent bill to hand so you can give details of your gas and electricity usage. There’s no doubt that the comparison site offers convenience and will potentially save time in sourcing a new provider, but there’s likely to be cheaper deals available that will better meet your firm’s needs. In order to find these and compare business energy deals effectively by experts who understand how the markets operate means speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi.

Advice On Sourcing Cheap Business Electricity Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
One effective way of lowering overheads is to reduce your firm’s energy bills but how do you source the best cheap business electricity deals? The best advice for doing this is to know when your contract endpoint is and then terminate the contract when it’s allowed. The reasons for doing so are twofold: firstly, you will avoid being rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to be much higher than contracts for new customers, and secondly, you will be forced to find a new supplier. It’s always important when checking quotes from suppliers that you don’t just focus on the unit rate per kWh since a potential supplier may offer a low unit cost, but have a high standing charge – so there will be no effective saving. Cheap business gas provider This idea of terminating automatically a deal with a current supplier also extends to those firms and organisations wanting a cheap business gas provider. Again, a business gas quote will have two elements, and you’ll need to focus on the unit charge plus the standing charge to find out what your overall annual cost is likely to be. It is also a good idea to search the business energy market every year to ensure you are on the best deal possible and are not paying more than you should be doing. It may also be a good idea to get a quote from one or more of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers and then find out what another potential supplier can offer. For those firms looking to switch, it’s also a good idea to have your current supplier offer a quote and ask if there are any additional discounts from each supplier you approach. Finding a new cheap business energy provider So far, we haven’t mentioned using one of the online comparison sites for finding a new cheap business energy provider. You could use one of these sites to get an idea of the market rate for your size and type of business, but you need to be aware that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace. The search for cheap business energy deals should also include the efforts from an energy broker who has a wide and deep knowledge of the business energy supply market. As a result, they may find better and cheaper deals for meeting your business needs, so you should use an organisation that has access to the entire marketplace and can then negotiate on your behalf and deal with the switch over process. This will mean speaking with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to answer any questions you have about sourcing cheap business electricity deals.

by Simon Thompson

The most important reason is that you will save money and reduce your overheads, which is an important element in running a business today.

Should you contact the team of experts at D-Energi they will, in just a few minutes, find a cheaper, bespoke deal for you. Switch energy providers This may mean you needing to switch energy providers but this is a seamless process and the D-Energi team can take care of it for you. Your new energy supplier will need to know some details before they make a bespoke offering and these will include the size of your business, where you are located and how many staff you have, the supplier will also need to know the type of industry you work in. In addition to accessing cheaper rates, it may be possible to save even more by signing up to a contract of two or three years and some suppliers offer up to five years. This may be a good idea if you want to control your cash flow in the coming years, for example. An energy switch is for you Once you’ve decided that an energy switch is for you, then you could contact providers directly or use an online comparison site for this purpose. The best time to do this is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract and then you can spend a few minutes finding out whether you could enjoy any savings by switching. If you’ve never switched before then it’s highly likely that your supplier has moved you onto a deemed rate which tends to be much higher than for new customers. That’s the price businesses pay for complacency but a government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never bothered to switch so are likely to be paying more than they should be doing for their energy needs. It doesn’t have to be this way and if you need to know why you need to change your business energy solution provider and save money by doing so, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.
