How to find a supplier of renewable energy for business

by Simon Thompson
 
With growing demand from customers for better environmental standards in industry, there’s a need from firms to find a supplier of renewable energy for business. Another reason for this trend is that large organisations are now expected to report their carbon use for stakeholders and customers alike which is why renewable electricity for business is in demand. However, this is a complex market and for any organisation interested in switching to renewable energy supplies needs to understand how they can prove that the energy they use is sustainable. This will mean utilising the expertise of a team that not only understands the energy market in the UK for businesses but can also deliver the very best tariffs for renewable energy bills that are available. That team is D-Energi. We will find a renewable energy supplier This means we will find a renewable energy supplier that will be able to prove where a firm’s renewable energy is sourced and what the carbon emissions have been for that supply. This is a great boon for organisations who want to report having zero Scope 2 carbon emissions when they want to tell their stakeholders and customers of their sustainability efforts. Other than installing renewable energy generators such as solar PV panels and a wind generator, most firms will need to choose a renewable electricity supply product that will meet their strategy when it comes to sustainability. Among the options are natural sources such as those generated by sun, wind or water with the ability of having a certificate proving this. There’s also the ability to have a mixture of renewable generating sources and again have a certificate – the attraction here is that the supplier will prove that the firm has used 100% renewable electricity. Bespoke specific renewable energy product Some firms may also be interested in a bespoke specific renewable energy product which enables them to choose their preferred source of renewable energy generation and again this will have proof of origin certificates. Also, a firm can prove they can match the power they use with an equivalent amount of renewable energy being supplied into the National Grid by using Renewable Electricity Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificates. The certificates demonstrate the organisation’s renewable energy credentials and the supplier can also use cheap tariffs for the firm looking to switch energy suppliers to help reduce their energy costs and boost their sustainability reputation at the same time. There’s more to supplying renewable energy then just meeting a need for proving sustainability and a firm’s green credentials since their efforts will help everyone on the planet by reducing CO2 emissions so for those organisations interested in developing the use of renewable energy for business then the helpful team at D-Energi can help.

by Simon Thompson
 
The question of why change business gas supplier has a very simple answer and that is to save money – an increasingly important issue for many firms and organisations. That’s because businesses do not have money to waste and there’s no reason to throw money at unnecessary overheads, particularly when they are utility bills that can be sourced from cheaper providers. However, many business owners are tied-up with a busy schedule running their business which leaves little time to find other business gas suppliers who will offer energy at a cheaper rate. A simple solution to this is to utilise the skills and experiences of the team at D-Energi, for instance, since they have the latest offers and deals at their fingertips.

It’s also important to stress that these deals are also available for businesses large and small and the suppliers are keen to offer great services and even greater prices. For a business looking to swap energy suppliers, they should contact business energy experts who understand the market and the potential new contract a business will sign so they can deliver low price energy bills. This isn’t a one size fits all solution since businesses and organisations will have a range of energy needs and some may have several business sites to be incorporated into any new deal. Business gas rates change daily The price for business gas rates change daily which means the business energy tariffs will be changing regularly as well so a business looking to find a new supplier may need to act quickly when necessary.

Find the best cheap business gas and electric deals

by Simon Thompson
 
Businesses are increasingly looking to find the best cheap business gas and electric deals and it’s much easier to do so nowadays. Along with the growth in competition, is an announcement by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to reform the UK’s business energy market. The organisation is concerned about price transparency and bringing to an end automatic rollover contracts and for suppliers to give their business customers prompts to switch to rival energy supplies offering lower energy tariffs. Most of those aims can be met if the business or organisations are prepared to shop around and do some research on potential business energy suppliers. Or, for an easier way to access lower tariffs, contact the team at D-Energi who will have the latest and best prices available. Looking to switch energy suppliers One reason for the intervention of the CMA is that most firms will not be looking to switch energy suppliers on a regular basis despite their business energy costs being a big outgoing for them. There are concerns that many firms are stuck in the auto-renewal cycle for their energy supply contracts to be renewed which may be costing them a hefty sum every year. For a business that has never switched energy suppliers, or if they have remained with the supplier over a long period of time, it’s highly likely that they are paying more for their energy use than they need to. By switching energy suppliers, the business or organisation should be able to access lower tariffs to bring down their energy costs. While domestic energy users are increasingly opting to switch between energy suppliers this hasn’t quite transferred to the business community. Not yet anyway! Find a cheap business gas supplier The easiest way for a business to find a cheap business gas supplier or an electricity supplier is to look at their recent energy bills and then contact various energy suppliers to discuss what tariffs they may offer for the firm’s energy usage. The energy supplier will be quoting their best rates they have by email or by telephone and it is straightforward process for the business to decide whether they want to proceed with the prices quoted on. Some businesses may be concerned about the hassle involved in switching supplies but it will take between four and six weeks with no disruption to the business’s energy supply. The transition is seamless. Switching to cheap business gas and electricity is a hassle-free process particularly if the business doing the switching is utilising the expertise of the team at D-Energi.

Get a commercial energy quote and save £££’s

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses and organisations need to be looking at their running costs to ensure they remain competitive and finding a commercial energy quote that could reduce their outgoings could be crucial. Firms of all shapes and sizes regularly check the market to see what’s on offer to help reduce their energy costs and these can include looking at a fixed price energy plan. A plan like this will have fixed energy prices for up to three years so the business will know what its energy bills are going to be and they don’t need to worry about increasing electricity prices. This issue also leads onto ‘deemed rates’ which are for those businesses who are not on a fixed price energy plan. The business may instead be on a high electricity tariff, for instance, which is known as a deemed rate and by switching to cheaper tariffs they will, obviously, save money. Get a multisite commercial energy quote It’s also possible to get a multisite commercial energy quote which will make planning easier for the business since the sites will run under the same energy price tariff. The main aim is for a business or organisation to take control of their energy costs and they should monitor their energy usage by recording meter readings and then contacting energy providers to see if they can get cheaper prices. Or, as growing numbers of firms and organisations are doing, they could contact D-Energi who can help access a wide range of business energy suppliers and get the best tariffs available. It should also be appreciated that the process of finding cheaper energy tariffs is not just for established businesses or organisations, such as schools and hospitals, but also for new establishments. For those who want a new business electricity meter installing then this is a good opportunity to find the best possible tariffs and locking into low rates before the inevitable rise in energy prices over the next year or two. Business energy providers offer a range of commercial energy prices Business energy providers offer a range of commercial energy prices, contracts and contract lengths which can be confusing but it is possible to sign up for a flexible contract that delivers the lowest business energy rates quite easily. Remember, getting a commercial energy quote is a straightforward process which could lead to the organisation saving a lot of money on their energy costs – money they do not need to be spending currently and which will boost their profitability instead; so for the best help and advice in switching energy suppliers contact the helpful team at D-Energi.
