Get the best commercial energy quote

by Simon Thompson
 
For all businesses and organisations large and small the task of finding the best commercial energy quote is something that they will want to do but are often too busy to complete. That would be a mistake since huge savings can be made by spending just a little bit of time finding some of the offers that are available for businesses from energy suppliers. Indeed, many organisations and businesses will be reviewing their overheads and outgoings on a regular basis and for many of them their energy costs will be a potential source for reduction and boosting profitability. Having said that, a business can save money on their business gas and electricity supply by simply using less energy and encouraging staff to turn off lights and computer monitors they are not using. The best way of reducing commercial energy bills These are some of the things that the business can encourage their staff to do and while they are noble ideas the best way of reducing commercial energy bills is to change energy supplier. Now depending on the size of the organisation, this might appear to be a daunting prospect to undertake but it is worthwhile doing because in the long run the organisation will save lots of money. Indeed, the savings will be felt immediately with lower running costs and improved profitability. Businesses looking for an energy solution should appreciate that no two firms will have the same energy requirements so it’s common for business energy suppliers to tailor a particular quote to a company’s needs. Tariffs for commercial energy prices As result, there are a variety of tariffs for commercial energy prices for large as well as small businesses and organisations and some will offer extra perks and others will have a dedicated account manager. This means the business will need to work out which business electricity and gas price plans will best suit their needs which will be a time consuming process because there are more than just the ‘big six’ energy suppliers available for this purpose. However, a simple way to save time and money is to ask experts in the field to find the best business energy solution for an organisation’s needs and this will mean contacting the experts at D-Energi. One reason for doing this is that the team has the expertise to work out who the best suppliers will be and appreciate that the tariffs and special offers may change on a daily basis and will strive to find the best deal possible to meet a business’s energy needs.

Switch to a cheap business gas and electric supplier and save

by Simon Thompson
 
The process of finding a cheap business gas and electric supplier is relatively straightforward so a business can compare energy quotes and find the best deal for their needs. All businesses will have energy bills to pay and unless they look at comparing various offers and deals regularly, they may not appreciate just how much more they are paying for their energy than they need to. Essentially, the aim of looking to switch business energy supplier is to find a fairer and better deal for the business. No one wants to pay more than they need to for their energy usage but some businesses will believe that the process of switching energy supplier is complicated and time-consuming and they may lose a constant supply of energy. The process of switching energy supplier There are two points to bear in mind and they are that the process of switching energy supplier is not complicated and it’s not time consuming but it is very straightforward. In addition, the switchover between energy suppliers is smooth and seamless so they will not lose a supply of energy to their business. It’s also worth bearing in mind that a business should use the services of experts in the field which would mean, for instance, contacting D-Energi to find the best deals available for the business. That’s because there’s a wide variety of business energy suppliers available and they offer a range of tariffs and deals depending on the business’s energy needs and when they will be using that energy. Compare prices and tariffs for a cheap business gas supplier quickly So the experts will be able to compare prices and tariffs for a cheap business gas supplier, for instance, quickly and effectively and also arrange for the switchover to take place and resolve any potential issues with the current supplier. They can also help set up the contract. Businesses will also need to appreciate that a business energy supplier will be looking to offer separate tariffs for gas and electricity use and the process of comparing prices and tariffs is an opportunity for reducing those bills. It helps too that under regulations brought in by the energy watchdog Ofgem, businesses will be informed before their current contract ends that their price for energy will probably be increasing but the supplier must also tell the business what their competitors are offering. This is a great nudge for those businesses to explore further what the better tariffs may offer them which is where the helpful team at D-Energi can offer help for a business looking to switch to a cheap business gas and electric supplier.

How to compare business energy offerings

by Simon Thompson
 
To help boost business efficiencies it is always a good idea to compare business energy offerings but how does an organisation find the best one? There’s no doubt that this can be a daunting process with so many firms offering a wide range of energy tariffs to attract a business as their customer. Most businesses in the UK will be relying on their energy supply in order to operate effectively and if that energy supply was stopped for some reason then it would have a big impact on how they can trade. For this reason alone, business owners and organisations should be engaged in what their business energy contract offers and what’s available on the market. Compare business electricity and gas quotes This will mean having to compare business electricity and gas quotes to find a better tariff so the business is not paying more than they need to for their business energy supply needs. Perhaps the best approach is to utilise the experience and expertise of a firm that offers a way to find the best possible deal from the widest range of suppliers. That would mean approaching an organisation such as D-Energi which looks at the entire market and not just the ‘big six’ business energy suppliers. Another important aspect to appreciate is for the business looking to switch energy suppliers is that there’s a big difference between sourcing a supplier for a domestic supply and business energy suppliers. Should someone look for a new energy supply for their home then they can pick a variety of defined energy tariffs to easily find the cheapest offer available. The big difference for the business energy supply market is that energy suppliers tend to offer bespoke energy quotes because businesses have different uses for energy and at different times. When a business wants to compare business gas and electricity tariffs This also means that when a business wants to compare business gas and electricity tariffs for a new contract they may have to secure their business electricity and gas needs separately since suppliers tend not to bundle these together as a package. Again, this is another good reason for using a firm that understands both the electricity and gas market for a business to find the best tariff. It also needs to be appreciated too that the business energy supply market operates on strict terms that they do not for domestic supply so it’s more difficult to switch supplier during a contract term though it is easier today than it used to be. That’s because Ofgem brought in rules that makes a business energy supplier tell their customer around 60 days before a contract ends what they will be pay under a new contract and, more importantly, what the terms of their rivals will be as well.

What P272 means for your business energy needs

by Simon Thompson
 
It does sound rather unnerving but P272 is a crucial change to the business energy market brought in by Ofgem, the energy watchdog, in October 2014. Essentially, the rule stipulates that all electricity meters used by a business must migrate to the ‘Half Hourly’ market. There are a number of reasons for this and all business sites in the UK must now use automated accredited metres that will send their usage data every half-hour to the energy supplier. The idea behind it is that the bills can be calculated more accurately. Original timescale for P272 The original timescale for P272 was for it to be promoted in April 2016 but this was brought forward for some organisations and delayed for others so they can switch electricity meters in time. The business meter energy switch affected more than 160,000 sites which are described as being medium energy users and they had to appoint data collectors as well as meter operators before the deadline was reached. These collectors and operators are put in place to run and maintain the meters and send the readings to the energy supplier. When we mentioned that the deadline for some meters to be installed was delayed it is crucial that all organisations check to see when they are affected since some will need to have the new meters in place by April 2017. Those firms with AMR meters will find the switchover can be done remotely without anyone having to visit the site. Electricity meter in the Profile Class 05-08 will be effected Organisations with their electricity meter in the Profile Class 05-08 will be effected and will switch from non-Half Hourly (NHH) to Half Hourly (HH) meters. It should also be noted that firms with meters in the Profile Class 03-04 will also, Ofgem says, also be moving to HH meters at some point. One of the big positives for the introduction of half hourly meters is that businesses will then have a better idea of their energy consumption and have the information to hand that makes it easy to get cheaper energy for the business needs from another supplier. Indeed, some organisations will find a tariff that offers lower energy prices but also a tariff that will use energy when it’s less expensive to do so. Not every business is affected by the P272 change and so organisations may already have compliant meters in place but for more help and advice about the situation then contact the helpful team at D-Energi who have the experience and expertise to help an organisation install the correct meters and find lower energy prices.
