How to Switch Business Gas Suppliers UK

by Simon Thompson
 
With so many providers competing in the marketplace, there’s probably never been a better time to switch business gas suppliers UK for firms and organisations. That is because switching your business or electricity supplier is one of the best ways of accessing the lowest prices and the best deals. However, with so many suppliers competing for your custom, it can appear to be overwhelming trying to select the supplier who will best meet your needs. The first step to switching is to know when your current gas supply contract comes up for renewal since this opens a window of opportunity to move providers and save money. Business gas prices you have agreed to pay The date for your energy contract renewal will be or should be, clearly stated on your energy contract and depending on the length of contract you sign, this could be several years ahead for the business gas prices you have agreed to pay. The notice period will vary between suppliers, so it’s always worthwhile checking or you could ask your energy provider for this information and they must send a renewal letter. Larger energy customers may not get a letter sent and if they don’t react within the specified time span, then they may be rolled onto another one-year contract and paying higher rates. There are a number of issues affecting the prices that will be quoted, including your geographical location, your firm’s size and how much energy you use along with how long you would like your business gas contract to run for. Firms wanting cheaper business electricity prices This situation is the same for those firms wanting cheaper business electricity prices and they too will have a window of opportunity in which they must act. It’s also not possible to enjoy a dual fuel deal to make the process of switching energy providers easier but you can have the same supplier delivering both gas and electricity to your premises. In addition to understanding contract lengths, you also need to appreciate the unit price, that’s the price paid per kilowatt hour (kWh) of gas or electricity, along with a standing charge, which is a daily fee charged to maintain the National Grid. As mentioned earlier, the process to switch business gas suppliers UK, and also for electricity, can appear to be confusing and daunting because so many suppliers are competing for your custom but the helpful team at D-Energi can help you find a better deal in just a few minutes and take care of the switchover process.

How to Carry Out A Business Electricity Comparison

by Simon Thompson
 
Since electricity is a key utility for most firms and organisations, it’s important to carry out a business electricity comparison exercise to ensure you’re not overpaying for this. There are simple steps needed when looking for a new business electricity supplier and how to switch to their service. Firstly, finding the best tariff deal that will meet your firm’s needs can be tricky but using the expertise and experience of D-Energi means the process becomes much simpler. You will need to appreciate that when you compare business electricity prices there are several factors that suppliers will take into account including the size of your premises, the number of people in there and how much electricity you consume. The location of your business will also have an effect on the prices being charged. A business energy comparison The other big issue when a firm undertakes a business energy comparison is understanding how the bills are made up. This means there is a need to appreciate that the ‘unit cost’ is the amount paid per unit of electricity or gas that is used by a business. It’s measured in kilowatt hours or kWh. There’s also a standing charge, which is the fee levied every day to help maintain the National Grid and cover the costs for delivering electricity and gas to your premises. Business gas comparison exercise As with sourcing a new electricity provider, when you begin a business gas comparison exercise you will have to appreciate that the energy prices being quoted are based on wholesale costs. However, these will vary from day-to-day and they can be difficult to predict and will, inevitably, increase during cold winter months. Essentially, while business prices tend to be less expensive than for our homes do not forget VAT is charged at 20% and not at 5% as for domestic dwellings. You also need to appreciate the difference between a fixed rate and a flexible tariff when you begin a comparison exercise but you could access the experience of a team that deals with this issue every day. The other big advantage for doing so is that they will have access to every supplier and will be able to get the best prices when doing so. This means contacting the friendly team at D-Energi who can help you carry out a business electricity comparison, and also for gas, to ensure you access the best deal possible to meet your everyday business needs.

How to Enjoy Low Business Gas Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
If you want to enjoy the lowest business gas rates available, then you’ll need to do some homework first. That’s because the UK’s business gas supply market is extremely competitive and depending on your location and needs there will undoubtedly be a cheaper deal available. It’s just a question of finding it. While you could contact business gas suppliers directly, this is obviously time-consuming and if you restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers, you may find their offers are fairly similar. Find a business gas supplier You could use a comparison site to find a business gas supplier and compare their offerings, but the site may not be searching the whole market so you will probably miss out on cheaper, better deals. Also, don’t be baffled by industry jargon and you will need to calculate what a new supplier is offering with their unit rate and standing charge. Be wary of an offer with much lower unit rates as this may have a higher standing charge to compensate. The best time to search for a new business gas supplier is when your current contract is due to end as this opens a window of opportunity to move providers. Failing to do this may see you being rolled onto a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to have higher rates, and you may be tied into this new contract for 12 months, depending on the size of your firm. Searching for cheaper business gas bills Another tactic when searching for cheaper business gas bills is to opt for a longer business energy contract. Most suppliers will offer a one-year deal but it is possible to access deals of two and three years and potentially up to five years. This will help some firms with cash flow and business planning. However, you also need to appreciate that once you agree to switch there’s no ‘cooling off’ period, as there is when arranging energy for our homes, and if you cancel a new contract then there may be a penalty to be paid. The other important consideration is that when it comes to switching business gas supplier is the fact they will offer a contract that is tailored to your needs. So, as such, there is not really an off-the-shelf offering which makes comparing different contracts on a like-for-like basis more difficult. Thankfully, there is help at hand and the D-Energi team can explain more about how you and your firm can enjoy low business gas rates by simply switching providers.
