How to Find Cheaper Business Gas Rates Easily

by Simon Thompson
 
If you believe you are paying over the odds for your firm’s gas and want to find cheaper business gas rates easily then this article will help. There is no reason to be paying more than you should be for your gas use but many business owners are very busy and don’t have the time to shop around individual suppliers. While they could contact a supplier directly, they may restrict their search to the ‘Big Six’ and find that their offers are fairly similar and decide it’s not worth the time and hassle to switch to a new provider. Since around 40% of firms in the UK, a government survey has revealed, have never switched their energy supplier means that many firms are probably paying more than they should be doing for their gas prices. Switching to a cheaper business gas supplier And since the savings can be substantial, it helps that switching to a cheaper business gas supplier is straightforward. Indeed, there is no loss of gas supply to your premises when this process is undertaken and the supplier may offer other attractive benefits such as a consultancy to help your firm use less gas and boost your savings even further. It’s also possible that if you believe business gas prices are going to rise in the short-term, that you can secure cheap gas prices for several years, which will help with cash flow planning. There’s no doubt that predicting future gas prices can be difficult since the prices are affected by a range of events including international conflicts and demand for gas. Accessing a cheaper business gas bill For those interested in accessing a cheaper business gas bill, then you can do so by using a comparison site for this purpose or speak to a member of the D-Energi team who will be able to search the market to find a cheaper supplier. Of those who want to use a comparison service, then you should check beforehand how many suppliers they are searching because there may be cheaper and better providers available who will not be asked to quote. This means there could be bigger savings to be enjoyed by searching a wider range of providers. Also, when using a comparison service for business gas suppliers, you will still need to speak with the recommended provider because they must offer a bespoke quote that will meet your needs. For more help and information about determining whether your business energy quote is the cheapest available, and if it isn’t then getting help to find one that will be, you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Try D-Energi for Your Next Commercial Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
In the drive to reduce overheads, firms should be looking to find a cheaper commercial electricity quote and this is where D-Energi can help. The best time for sourcing a new quote is when your current electricity provider gets in touch with their next contract details but the process to find a new supplier is different to the one for supplying our homes. The big difference is that the supplier must offer a bespoke deal that meets your needs so there will be no chance of accepting an offer without speaking to the supplier first. And if you run a larger enterprise, then you may be charged a half hourly rate for the electricity you use. Sourcing new commercial electricity rates However, the biggest reason for sourcing new commercial electricity rates is if your firm or organisation has not switched providers in recent years. You won’t be alone in this regard since a survey published by the Government highlights that around 40% of firms have never switched but this could be a costly mistake since your provider may have moved you on to ‘deemed’ rates, which tend to be dearer. While searching for a new energy supplier can be a time-consuming process, and one that is often confusing, with help from experts who understand how the market works, it can be straightforward. Indeed, switching to a better and cheaper electricity deal is easy and simply takes a quick phone call with one of the D-Energi team and they will be able to search the entire marketplace to compare various tariffs and find a deal that will suit your needs. Cheaper electric prices for your business Also, you could use an online comparison site in the search for cheaper electric prices for your business and this is a quick exercise to highlight what the potential market rate for your business is. Alternatively, you could contact business electricity suppliers directly, give them your details and then see what they have to offer you. It’s also important that you don’t restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers because if you are contacting providers directly they may offer similar deals and you may believe there are no real big savings to be made and so don’t bother switching. This is a mistake because there is a lot of competition in the marketplace currently with deals and tariffs changing daily – unless you search for a new provider your business won’t know what these deals are and you will not reduce your overheads. If you want to know more about finding a cheaper commercial electricity quote then contact the experts at D-Energi.

Tips When Swapping to a Cheap Business Gas and Electric Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
A great way to reduce overheads is to swap to a cheap business gas and electric supplier and this article will offer some tips to do so. The most important tip is to act when your current gas or electricity provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract. That’s because this will open a window of opportunity for you to find a better and cheaper supplier before your current provider moves you onto a deemed contract where the rates tend to be dearer. By spending just a few minutes speaking with the experts at D-Energi, you could access a cheaper and better deal from a new provider and have the switchover process undertaken for you. It’s also important to be aware that there are other issues that a potential provider will be looking at when quoting a deal and they include your location, your business size and industry you are working in. Cheap business gas supplier Sourcing a cheap business gas supplier is straightforward and along with contacting D-Energi, you could contact a potential supplier directly or use a comparison website. These comparison websites are undoubtedly very popular but you need to be aware that they may not be searching the entire business energy supply market. As a result, there may be better deals and tariffs available that you will be unaware of so you should speak with a firm that has access to the entire marketplace – as D-Energi does. Also, you may opt to use a comparison site in a bid to save time and avoid speaking with a supplier directly, but you’ll still need to speak with the provider because they must offer you a bespoke deal. Understand how to compare business energy per kWh If you decide to carry out the exercise yourself, then you’ll need to understand how to compare business energy per kWh because this is how the offer will be made. The kilowatt-hour is how much energy your firm uses and the prices between suppliers will vary but you need to be aware that the standing charge is an additional cost. Essentially, a potential new provider may offer a much lower price per kWh but increase their standing charge so you may not be saving money, or even worse, be spending more. This is where the expertise of the D-Energi team will come into its own because they not only understand how the business energy supply market works, but they have access to the entire marketplace to get the best deal. If you want to know more about swapping to a cheap business gas and electric supplier, then you need to contact the D-Energi energy team today.

Should You Compare Business Energy Providers Every Year?

by Simon Thompson
 
The short answer to the question, ‘Should you compare business energy providers every year?’ is most definitely ‘Yes’! That’s because all firms and organisations should be looking at their energy overheads on a regular basis to ensure they are not paying more than they should be doing for their energy needs. If yours is one of those firms who has never switched energy providers previously, then it’s likely that your organisation has been switched automatically to a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to be dearer than for those offered to new clients. The best time for searching and comparing business energy providers is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your contract rates for the coming year to see whether there are better and cheaper providers available. Compare business electricity providers There is no doubt that the market for supplying business energy is a competitive one, so you should compare business electricity providers to see who has the best deal available. You could contact electricity suppliers directly, give them a few details and see whether they have a cheaper tariff. This also means it can be a confusing and time-consuming process, and there may be better deals available from other suppliers that you won’t get to hear about. Alternatively, you could use an online business energy comparison site and these will search a range of potential suppliers to see what savings are available. These sites are quick and easy to use and you have to give a few details though you will still need to speak with a potential provider directly, so they can offer a bespoke tariff to meet your needs. Firms wanting to compare business gas suppliers These issues also extend to those firms wanting to compare business gas suppliers and you’ll need to shop around, but the marketplace is a competitive one for those firms that make the effort to source a new provider. It may be that a smaller energy provider will best meet your needs and also help you reduce consumption levels to help you deliver even greater savings and help boost your green credentials as a result. Using less gas and electricity for our everyday needs is an increasingly important aspect of business today. It also needs to be appreciated that for those firms who shop around that they don’t target their efforts at the ‘Big Six’ suppliers as they may find that their prices are similar and there are no real savings to be made and they then don’t bother switching. This could be an expensive mistake to make and the best way to compare business energy providers in the UK is to speak with the friendly team of experts at D-Energi who can search the entire marketplace in just a few minutes to find a deal that will not only meet your everyday needs but also be cheaper as well.
