By simply contacting the experts, you’ll soon appreciate how much you can save and depending on the size of your firm, it could be a substantial proportion of your current energy outgoings. Also, you may not be aware but energy prices fluctuate on a regular basis, which is in reaction to market movements and also political events, among others issues.

There is number of issues with this process and the first is that the online comparison website for gas prices may not be searching the entire market and you will still need to speak with the supplier directly since they must offer you a bespoke deal.

How You Can Find the Best Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
Why should your business be paying more to use the same energy when you could find a better cheap business energy deal with a new supplier? There is no reason why not and according to one survey from the Competition and Mergers Authority, around 40% of firms have never bothered switching suppliers. That’s unfortunate because they are probably paying more than they need to for their business energy supply because their supplier will automatically roll them over onto a new contract, it’s known as a deemed contract, and these are generally more expensive. It’s also important to understand that a business can only switch business energy providers during a window of opportunity but if you have been rolled over onto a deemed contract then you will be able to switch at any point. Firms looking to source cheap business electricity deals There’s no doubt for firms looking to source cheap business electricity deals that the market is a competitive one because growing numbers of firms and organisations are taking the time and effort to switch providers. With growing competition means that prices are lowered as result. It’s also possible to lock into a new contract for two or three and even five years which will help those firms protect themselves against future energy price rises and help their cash flow forecasts as well. The other incentive for lowering overheads, and energy bills are the substantial part of business activities, means profitability will also be boosted. Another incentive for firms looking to switch electricity providers for their business means this is an opportunity to look into the potential of a green energy supplier since they will source their supply from environmentally friendly suppliers such as solar energy providers. This is attractive for growing numbers of firms. Easily switch to a cheap business gas provider In addition to electricity, it’s also possible to easily switch to a cheap business gas provider to help lower your bills even further. It’s also important to appreciate that while we can access a dual fuel deal for our homes, that is the same supplier providing the gas and electricity, this is not possible for a business. That’s because the supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal though you can use the same supplier for both but negotiate separate contracts. There’s lot to recommend the searching of the market for a new business gas and electricity provider and it’s not just about lowering bills; this is also great opportunity to find a supplier who may offer other things such as a consultancy to help your business lower your energy consumption levels which would bring down your bills even further. It’s also important to understand that when switching energy provider there is no loss of supply to your premises and the process itself is seamless and can be undertaken by the D-Energi team.   For more help and advice about how you can find the best cheap business energy deals, then speak with the friendly D-Energi team today.

How to Switch Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
It may have been a long time since your business looked at your energy overheads but it is easy to switch business energy suppliers and enjoy lower bills. Indeed, your business may never have looked at switching previously and you’ll be among the 40% of firms that a government survey revealed had never switched energy suppliers. However, the government is keen for increasing competition in the marketplace which will lead to lower bills so all firms should be looking every year to see whether they can get a better deal for their energy supply elsewhere. The easiest and simplest way to find low prices and undertake the switchover process is to speak with the D-Energi team who can do this in a few minutes. Alternatively, you could search the marketplace for yourself. Switching business electricity suppliers The first issue that will become apparent should you undertake a search is that switching business electricity suppliers is not quite as straightforward as it is for our homes. The first problem is that it is more difficult to carry out a like-for-like comparison between potential suppliers since they must offer a bespoke deal that will meet your business needs. The other issue is that you may have been rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract and until you research the marketplace you may not be aware just how much more you are paying for your energy needs than you should be doing. That’s not the fault of your energy supplier since they may have contacted you before the rollover contract started. They are also under no obligation to offer their best rates on their deemed contract. Switching business gas suppliers While this does sound to be rather unfair, the same situation applies when switching business gas suppliers. Again, their contracts come up for renewal every year and all firms and organisations should check the marketplace to ensure they are on the best possible deal. And, let’s face facts, it is possible for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds by switching while larger firms can save thousands of pounds within minutes. However, it is also important that you cannot switch suppliers in the middle of a contract without paying a penalty and you should switch during a window of opportunity. You could sign up with a new supplier for between one and three years at lower rates. By doing this you will be helping your future cash flow forecasts because you will know what your energy bills are likely to be. With energy costs set to continue rising, this is an effective way for a business to save money.   So, if you want to know how to switch business energy suppliers to enjoy lower energy bills, then it’s time to contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will find a deal to suit you and your business needs.

How to Compare Business Electricity Prices Per Kwh

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses and organisations should be looking to reduce their overheads and one way is to compare business electricity prices per kWh. Indeed, the same method can be applied to your business gas supplies well and you’ll need to look at your bill as the first step. Your business electricity bill will have a standing charge and also the cost per unit, the kWh. So, using this information you can then run a business energy comparison with other potential suppliers. You can do this easily using an online comparison website. Looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh However, just as a word of warning when looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh, you need to appreciate that the website may not be searching the entire market so cheaper suppliers may not be highlighted. Also, you will need to understand that a standing charge is an amount that is charged every day to cover the supplier’s costs in delivering the supply to your premises. The unit charge, or kilowatt-hour charge, is for every unit of energy the business uses. A potential supplier may offer a lower standing charge then your current supplier but their unit charge may be higher so there’s no real effective saving; you will need to sit down and work out carefully what each supplier is really offering. Calculate business gas prices per kWh As mentioned previously, you can use the same comparison website to calculate your business gas prices per kWh to source a new supplier. However, you may not appreciate that business energy suppliers can offer much more than lower prices and while we all want to lower our overheads, there may be some appeal in some of the other benefits. For example, they may offer a personal account manager or even online account management to operate your account effectively. Some suppliers may also offer an energy consultancy so not only will you enjoy cheaper bills than your current supplier but you may also reduce consumption to lower your bills even further.   Essentially, if you’re looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh then it is a good place to start online but speaking with the experts at D-Energi will enable you to search the entire market in just a few minutes – saving you valuable time – and also offer other potential extra benefits as well.
