Find A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
Businesses and organisations could save money by paying less for their energy being used every day, which means that finding a cheaper business electricity supplier is key. This also means that there will need to be a process in place to compare energy quotes effectively between providers to ensure that you get a better deal for your firm’s electricity supply. There are a number of issues to consider when comparing business electricity bills and these may include the size of your business since some providers specialise in business sizes. Also, if your firm is a large consumer of electricity and you have half hourly meters installed, then you will need help with the procurement process in dealing with this specialist part of the energy supply marketplace. Business electricity rates The business electricity rates being quoted will also vary depending on your geographic location, as some areas are more expensive than others. Also, how many employees you have, whether you want to expand or move premises over the contract’s duration and the industry you work in also have an influence. The new provider will need to know how much electricity you are using every year and should yours be a new business, then a provider can help estimate what your potential usage will be for that contract. The supplier will also want to know whether you have peak periods of electricity demand, for example in the early hours of the morning or late at night, which may lead to cheaper rates. There are also suppliers available who offer energy consultancies to help your business reduce its electricity consumption, which will not only reduce your bills even further but also boost your firm’s environmental credentials. Business electricity contracts There is a range of business electricity contracts available and they will be fixed, so you could sign up for up to five years or they could be flexible. With a fixed contract you will know how much your electricity bills are likely to be because the unit rate will not increase. It also means that the unit rate will not decrease, which will be an expensive option should prices fall over the contract’s duration. The most important part of finding a cheaper electricity supplier is to compare the quotes from a range of providers, which is where the D-Energi experts can help because they can scour the entire market on your behalf to find the best deals and tariffs available and then help with the switchover process.

6 Tips to Compare Business Energy Tariffs

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for tips to compare business energy tariffs before making the move to a new provider, then this article will help. The first tip is perhaps the most important one, and it is: When your new provider gets in touch with details of your renewal contract, you may find that the rates are much higher than those being offered by competitors. The second tip is to act. Failing to act when your new provider tells you what your new tariff will be may see you being moved automatically to a new contract with higher tariffs. The third tip from the experts at D-Energi for finding a new supplier is: Have your information to hand. A new supplier will need to know how much energy your firm is consuming and if you have more than one location, you’ll need information on these locations too. Most information will be found on a recent bill and you really should have the meter number so a supplier will know where your exact location is so you can compare business electricity and gas deals. The fourth tip is to be aware of what influences the tariff. Not all business owners will appreciate that the tariffs being quoted will vary between suppliers based on a range of criteria. Among these will be the size of your business and how much energy you consume, how many employees you have and your regional location. The fifth tip is to use experts when sourcing your new energy contract. Depending on the size of your business, it’s worth speaking with D-Energi who can explain the new contract from a supplier and if it will be better for your business and how the tariffs have been calculated. They can also take care of the switchover process. The sixth tip is to sign up with D-Energi. By signing up with D-Energi, not only will you and your business have access to the entire marketplace – not necessarily something that a website to compare business gas and electricity will do – to find the best and cheapest deal and have the switchover process taken care of. More importantly, the D-Energi team will monitor the market and get in touch at your renewal period to find whether there’s a better deal available to help keep your energy costs as low as possible and boost profitability. For more help and information and other tips to compare business energy tariffs between potential providers, you should speak with the friendly D-Energi team today.

Sourcing Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
For many busy business owners, sourcing cheap business energy deals can appear to be a distraction too far. However, reducing your firm’s energy overheads is a great way to boost profitability and the process is a lot simpler than many will appreciate. While you could contact energy providers directly, you should use the expertise of the D-Energi team to find the contract that best meets your needs at lower prices. This process will take a few minutes and the advantage is that the friendly team is able to search the entire market on your behalf to find these deals. It’s certainly worth looking into the prospect of reducing energy overheads by up to 40%, which is an incentive for spending a small amount of time doing so. Find cheap business electricity and gas deals But that may not be the case should you decide to use a comparison website to find cheap business electricity and gas deals for your firm. It’s a good idea to check just how many providers the comparison website will contact to provide a quote and it’s unlikely to be the entire market. This obviously means that there could be cheaper and better deals available that you will be unaware of and you will still need to speak with the recommended provider. That’s because the provider must offer you and your business a bespoke deal and you will still have to do some negotiation and give details so the provider can tailor their offering to suit. The prices being quoted will vary between providers and are influenced by how much electricity and gas your firm consumes, how many employees you have, the type of industry you work in and even your regional location. Search for cheap business gas and electricity deals The search for cheap business gas and electricity deals may also extend to contacting these providers directly. This is a time-consuming undertaking because you will need to give the same details every time and then compare their bespoke offerings, which can be confusing. In addition, you may want to consider other incentives to move to a new energy provider such as having an energy consultancy undertaken. This consultancy will help your business reduce its energy consumption to help deliver even larger savings and boost profitability. If you are looking to source cheap business energy deals, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi today.

Switch Onto New Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
With growing numbers of micro-businesses being created in the UK, there is a growing need to switch on to new business energy suppliers to help save costs. As a micro-business, you have more freedom when it comes to selecting a business energy contract than other firms, particularly big businesses. The best time to scour the market for a new business energy provider is when you have at least 30 days on your current energy contract remaining. Your supplier should have been in touch to tell you what your next year’s contract rate will be and this is the prompt you need. Switch business electricity suppliers If you are looking to switch business electricity suppliers, then the new contract information that your current provider gives is the starting point for negotiation with them and other potential providers. The rules help micro-businesses since they don’t have a rigid timeframe to arrange a new electricity deal that other firms have. Also, should they be rolled over onto a new deemed contract, which tends to have higher prices, then they are able to leave that contract. The entire process of switching has been made simpler for small firms and it’s an exercise that should be carried out every year. The other incentive for a micro-business, should you be looking for one, is that by simply asking for a quote from an energy provider, you will be helping to stimulate competition in the marketplace which will benefit all micro-businesses. Cheaper business gas suppliers In addition, micro-businesses should also check the market for cheaper business gas suppliers as well. While gas bills tend to be much lower, it’s still a worthwhile exercise finding a cheaper provider to reduce overheads. With lower costs, profitability will increase so the micro-business is helping to create a successful venture. Not every business owner will be checking the marketplace every year to ensure they are not overpaying on their business gas and electricity bills and one government survey underlines this. The researchers found that around 40% of firms haven’t switched providers in recent years, so they are probably overpaying on their energy costs. There’s no excuse for a micro-business to fall into this trap of inactivity since there is a helpful team at D-Energi who can help you switch on to new business energy suppliers by finding a cheaper deal and taking care of the switching process.
