How An Energy Consultancy Can Benefit You

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms and organisations want to save energy and costs so this is how an energy consultancy can benefit you. There’s no doubt that the amount firms spend on energy is a big part of their budget and if this can be reduced, then profitability will be boosted. But how do you go about using less energy and even accessing lower energy bills with a new energy provider? There’s no need to hire an energy manager, which will add to the firm’s overall running costs, but a consultancy will be able to deliver everything you are looking for and more. Also, the size of the organisation is of no real concern since every firm – whether it’s a one-man band or spread over several sites – will benefit from energy advice. Using a consultancy energy services Indeed, one of the big attractions for using consultancy energy services is that they will bring independent advice and experience to benefit their client. They will also help you make the correct decisions for your business rather than seeking biased advice from another source, for instance, from a big energy supplier. You’ll also need to appreciate that every firm has peaks and troughs with their energy usage levels which are reflected in their bills. However, the energy consultancy will highlight what steps a firm can take to address the peaks in a bid to lower their energy demand. As a business owner, you should be looking for a detailed analysis that looks at reducing costs and the potential for using different methods of power. These will include using solar and wind power as alternative energy sources and will be a big boost for the firm’s environmental credentials. Reducing a firm’s carbon emissions Indeed, reducing a firm’s carbon emissions will benefit the environment and our health and also underline the firm’s commitment to caring for the environment; this is an increasingly important aspect of a business. It’s also important to appreciate that an energy consultancy will also work with your firm over the long-term and give excellent advice that can be used to help lower costs and energy usage. The consultancy should also make you aware of the best deals and tariffs available for the firm and reduce the overall spend on energy bills.   There’s no doubt that using an energy consultancy will benefit a firm or organisation and if you want to know how this can be done, then speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How to Find A Cheap Commercial Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
For any business looking to find a cheap commercial electricity quote, the process is straightforward and easy. The simplest way is for a firm to contact an organisation that understands how the energy market works for business and calls them. After handing over a view details, the firm should be able to find the cheapest energy plan for their business needs – and not all plans will be suitable. This will mean speaking with the team at D-Energi who have the latest deals and tariffs available and who have the expertise to appreciate why a particular deal may not offer the savings or deliver what the firm wants or needs. Sourcing commercial electricity rates Indeed, understanding and sourcing commercial electricity rates that are suitable for business’s needs is an important part of finding a suitable deal. This may not be apparent when a firm uses an online comparison website, for instance, since the site may not be searching the entire market and may not have enough details to deliver the tariff or package the firm is looking for. However, the comparison website will give an indication of the current market rates that the firm should be paying and they can use this information with a potential new commercial electricity supplier. The business will also need to appreciate whether they want to be on a fixed rate deal that runs for one, two or three years. Some deals will run for longer. Electric prices will rise Before doing so, the business owner or senior staff will need to appreciate whether they believe electric prices will rise over the course of a fixed rate deal. Many firms locking into current prices could see them making substantial savings on their current contract and this will carry on for the contract’s term. This is a sound business move should price rise but with increasing competition helping to force energy prices down, firms need to appreciate the downsides to a longer term energy deal as well. In addition, the firm will also need to appreciate that moving to a fixed-rate deal that runs for more than one year means they will be able to plan their cashflow more effectively because they will know what their electricity bills are likely to be.   For more help in finding a cheap commercial electricity quote and then switching to a new supplier, speak with the helpful team at D-Energi.

How to Switch Commercial Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
The ability for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers is much easier than many of them probably realise. Indeed, a Competition and Markets Authority survey that around 40% of firms have never switched energy suppliers so they are probably paying more for their energy needs than necessary. A simple call to switching experts such as the D-Energi team will reveal how much a business can save but this depends on the nature of the industry they are in. In many ways, swithcing business energy suppliers is rather like that for switching suppliers for our homes. Find a commercial energy quote The first step is to find a commercial energy quote the business likes and opt for a tariff that best meets their needs. It’s also possible that the firm can save time and energy from shopping around a vairety of suppliers by suing experts who understand how the commercial energy market works. They will have access to the latest plans and tariffs and can then deal with any relevant paperwork to switch between suppliers. Firms also need to appreciate, in case they may be worried, that there will be no loss of supply during the switchover process. Finding better commercial energy prices Indeed, finding better commercial energy prices is easy to do with the help of the team at D-Energi though they could use online comparison websites to get a feel for the market rates being charged. Since deregulation, lots of energy suppliers have entered the market and are offering a wide variety of deals, tariffs and plans to attract customers. This was the ultimate aim of deregulation with the government believing that this would lead to greater competition, lower prices and better levels of customer service. It’s easy for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers This has now been achieved and while it’s easy for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers, they will need to pay any outstanding bills before the process can take place. In addition, firms cannot switch suppliers until a window of opportunity opens in their current contract; they cannot break an energy contract for a cheaper deal. Some energy suppliers may allow this to happen but they may also charge exit fees – which may be more than the firm will make in savings.   For more help and information about how firms can switch commercial energy suppliers to save money on their overheads, then it’s time to speak with the helpful team at D-Energi.
