Switch On To The Cheapest Gas Tariff

by Simon Thompson
 
As a busy business owner, you will probably be juggling several roles to manage and also grow your business without having the time to switch onto the cheapest gas tariff to reduce overheads. However, switching will undoubtedly save you money on your gas bill even though this opportunity is probably not at the top of your to-do list. This means you will need to find someone to carry out this exercise on your behalf and the D-Energi team has the experience and expertise to do this effectively. Alternatively, you could contact potential gas suppliers directly or use an online comparison site for this purpose. Compare business gas prices between providers There are obvious downsides to the last two routes particularly when you want to compare business gas prices between providers because the site may not be searching all of the suppliers available to find the best deal for your needs. This will mean that there could be better and cheaper offers available that will never come to your attention. Despite this, sourcing a quote from D-Energi is not only easy but quick since the expert team will scour the marketplace to find the cheapest gas tariff available. This process only takes a few minutes and if you like the offer the team finds for you then they can also undertake the switchover process so there’s no need to worry about any of the paperwork that is involved. Seeking a new commercial gas quote It’s this ability to take the hassle out of seeking a new commercial gas quote for your firm’s needs that will make your life easier and reduce overheads. This exercise should be undertaken every year when your current supplier gets in touch with your contract details for the coming year – because if you don’t respond to the supplier’s offer, then they could move you onto a ‘deemed’ rate for your energy needs which tend to be dearer. However, if you don’t switch then you will not be alone since a government survey highlights that around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched their energy providers and are probably overpaying for their energy needs. Do not let this be you because the D-Energi team can help you switch onto the cheapest gas tariff available and deal with the switching process so you can focus on running your business.

Reduce Costs with An Energy Consultancy

by Simon Thompson
 
Along with switching energy providers, a business or organisation can also reduce their costs with an energy consultancy which sees an expert helping them deliver long-term savings. Depending on the energy provider or broker you use, this consultancy will not only look at the gas and electricity being consumed by your business but also look at how you can reduce water usage as well. But it’s not just about saving money on overheads, though this is a great reason for using a consultancy, since having an expert look at your energy and water usage levels will also boost your environmental credentials. A consultant will help you understand more about the carbon footprint of the firm and reduce it by offsetting energy consumption levels. Check the bills for your energy services The consultancy will also check the bills for your energy services and ensure that the invoices are correct. They will validate these bills and then hold the supplier accountable for any mistakes or overcharging. This offering also extends to reviewing your firm’s water consumption and to help eliminate waste and reduce consumption levels that will lower costs as part of their water audit. It’s also important that your firm’s business water and energy efficiencies are benchmarked against similar businesses. By doing so, the consultant will be able to tell you what kind of consumption reduction can be realistically achieved to deliver long-term savings. Signing up with a new energy service company As mentioned earlier, one of the big attractions for a consultancy service is that they are often offered as a benefit when signing up with a new energy service company as part of a package. Not only will you and your business enjoy lower bills by switching but the energy consultant will boost the savings even further when checking how and when you use your energy and then making recommendations for using less.

How to Compare Business Energy Per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
The energy costs for your business or organisation is made up with unit rates which is the price you pay for each unit of energy so you will need to compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt hour) deals between providers. Also, you will need to take into account the standing charge, which is an amount that goes towards paying for supplying electricity and gas to your premises – usually calculated on a daily basis. However, comparing business electricity and gas tariffs per kilowatt hour can be complicated because you will be looking at separate quotes from providers for these utilities. This will then make it more difficult working out which is the best value deal for your firm’s needs but looking at the price per kilowatt-hour makes this job easier. Best cheap business gas and electric supplier Finding the best cheap business gas and electric supplier will mean selecting the right tariff from a supplier’s offerings and knowing how much energy you use during the year means that calculating average prices per kWh will give you a good idea of what the new deal will cost. However, the unit price per kilowatt hour will vary depending on your geographic location and the industry you are in and also how many employees you have now – and plan to have in the future. Also, the size of your business will have an impact with micro-businesses paying slightly more than a small business who will pay slightly more than a medium business will do. Cheap business gas supplier Finding a cheap business gas supplier, and also for electricity, also means appreciating the standing charges they have which do vary between suppliers and sometimes these differences can be huge. For example, a potential new supplier may offer an impressive price per kilowatt hour but have a much higher standing charge to make up for this. Effectively, your firm will not be making any real savings and switching to a new provider may end up costing you more. In addition, most business owners are very busy with their day-to-day responsibilities so finding the time to source a new energy supplier will not be easy. The best way for a business owner to compare business energy per kilowatt hour deals between providers is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can do this on your behalf and, in a few minutes, find a cheaper, better deal than you currently enjoy.

Sourcing Great Commercial Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
Utility bills, if not kept under control, can damage a business so sourcing great commercial energy prices on a regular basis will be a sound move. The best time for checking the market is when your current supplier gets in touch to tell you what your next year’s contract rates will be. If you decide not to search for another energy supply, you may be simply too busy, then it’s likely your provider will move you onto ‘deemed’ rates which can be very high. These deemed rates are used when there’s no active contract in place for supplying energy to your business because the provider will assume that you want an uninterrupted supply of power to carry on working. This means that your energy provider will supply your premises with energy but this will be done at the higher deemed rates. Find a new commercial energy quote Considering that it only takes a few minutes to find a new commercial energy quote for your firm, this is an expensive price for inactivity. There are two types of tariff contracts for small business energy needs and they are a fixed rate tariff and a variable rate tariff. With a fixed rate, the price being paid per kilowatt hour (kWh) will be fixed for a set period of time usually, it’s for one year but contracts can be signed for two or three years and some suppliers will offer up to five years. The downside to a fixed tariff is that you may be tied into higher prices should prices fall. With a variable rate, the price you pay will vary over the fixed term contract but you will benefit when prices for energy fall. Searching for new commercial energy deals When searching for new commercial energy deals, there’s no ‘best tariff’ that you can consult because each energy provider will need to offer a bespoke deal for your own needs. This means that it’s also difficult to carry out a like-for-like comparison between providers but if your firm has moved across to deemed rates, you could save up to 50% by simply switching providers. There are comparison sites for checking what the market rate is for your needs but this site may not be searching all potential suppliers and there could be better deals available. One effective way of checking the marketplace for energy providers to supply energy to your firm is to contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will be able to help you source great commercial energy prices and save money on your overheads.
