Is Your Firm on the Cheapest Gas Tariff?

by Simon Thompson
 
If you know the answer to the question of ‘Is your firm on the cheapest gas tariff?’, then you will be more knowledgeable than many other firms and organisations in the UK. That’s because one government survey highlights that around 40% of firms have never switched their energy supplier, so it’s likely that they are not on the cheapest gas tariff necessary for their everyday needs. In addition, it’s also likely that their provider has rolled them onto an automatic contract with higher rates, these are known as deemed rates, so switching gas providers should lead to big savings. For those firms who say ‘Yes’ to the question about being on the cheapest gas tariff for their firm’s needs, you may also have to appreciate that the cheapest deal may not necessarily be the best one. Compare business gas prices every year One reason for this, is that many energy providers offer other incentives and services, including better levels of customer service to attract customers, but all firms should compare business gas prices every year. By doing so, they will be reassured that they are on the cheapest gas tariff that was available when they began searching the marketplace because gas prices fluctuate regularly in a competitive market. One important issue when it comes to comparing gas prices for gas procurement is to understand how to find these prices to start with. You could contact providers directly or use a business gas comparison site for this purpose, or you could use experts who can help provide a flexible gas procurement service to firms large and small. Search for the best commercial gas quote It’s the search for the best commercial gas quote that meets your needs that should really include experts who can search the marketplace for offers and find the best one for you. One of the issues when it comes to comparing commercial gas quotes is that the provider must offer a bespoke deal, which then makes it harder to compare these deals on a like-for-like basis between suppliers. You may need to rely on a third party who understands how the market works and can explain the deals to you. In addition to accessing the cheapest prices, you could also utilise the services of a provider to help you reduce the amount of energy your firm uses to enjoy real long-term savings. In addition, this gas procurement service means that you not only enjoy cheaper bills, but you’ll be helping our environment by using less gas as a result. If you would like more help in finding and then understanding the cheapest gas tariff that might be available for your firm’s needs, then it is time to speak with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to help.

What is an Energy Consultancy?

by Simon Thompson
 
One great way for a firm to lower their energy bills is to use a consultancy. But, what is an energy consultancy? Essentially, an energy consultant will help your firm analyse its energy consumption with the aim of reducing your energy bills. For most firms and organisations, their energy bills are a very large overhead so any help in reducing them will boost profitability. However, it’s important that anyone interested in an energy consultancy chooses the right energy consultant for meeting their needs. Cost of your energy services The consultant will look at the cost of your energy services and introduce ways of reducing consumption to help deliver realistic savings on your everyday outgoings. In addition, the consultant will also have or should have, extensive knowledge of the energy supply market in the UK to find a better and cheaper deal that will meet your firm’s needs. Again, this will help reduce costs and the consultant could also look at your previous bills to ensure you were on the right tariff and haven’t been overcharged at any point, so they may help you reclaim part of those bills. One of the attractions for using a consultant to look at the cost of your energy services is that some energy providers offer this as an incentive to sign up with them and it is a possibility that the team at D-Energi can also help you arrange one. Experiences of an energy service company However, one of the big roles for an energy consultancy is to utilise the experiences of an energy service company to help implement energy saving projects. As mentioned earlier, this will mean reducing your daily consumption of energy to save money and help our environment and this may include investing in new, lower energy using equipment. For example, computers and printers may be more energy efficient and they may also introduce other devices so lights are switched off in rooms where no one is working, for example. It may also be possible that an energy service company will help you consider generating your own energy supply and selling the balance back to the National Grid. All ideas will be considered and discussed. Another great use for an energy consultant with lots of experience is that they will be able to help you and your business access a better and cheaper deal for meeting your everyday energy needs because they will have extensive experience and knowledge of the energy supply market to find a tariff that best meets your needs. If you are a business owner wanting to learn more about an energy consultancy and how an energy consultant can help you reduce overheads, then it’s time to speak with the team at D-Energi.

Sourcing A Cheap Business Gas Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to sourcing a cheap business gas supplier, then a busy business owner may believe it’s too much time and trouble to switch providers. But that could be an expensive mistake to make, particularly since supplying gas for some firms can be an expensive process so it is important to understand how to switch suppliers to save. Essentially, firms and organisations will be looking for a reliable business gas supplier and preferably one with the lowest rates. However, the cost of gas supply is only one issue to consider in the search for a cheaper gas business gas provider. Compare business energy per kWh costs For any firm looking to switch their energy provider, it’s important to understand how they can compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt hour) costs to find a deal that is suitable for them. This is an important part in the process of making an informed decision when selecting a new business gas provider. So, while most firms will understand that the price of energy supply is important it is the unit cost, which is measured in kilowatt hours, which is the amount paid for the energy they actually use. These costs tend to be a fixed rate so your bills will vary according to how much energy you consume. In addition, there is a standing charge which helps pay for delivering energy via the National Grid to your business premises. The important consideration here is that these charges will vary between suppliers, so you’ll need to be aware of them. Cheap business gas and electric prices Also, another consideration when looking at cheap business gas and electric prices is the difference between fixed and variable rates. A fixed rate for your energy means that you agree a price regardless of whether there are increases in the marketplace so your bills will be unaffected. Most firms opt for a fixed rate energy tariff as this will offer protection against these energy price fluctuations. There’s also the potential of variable rate tariffs so the cost per kilowatt hour will vary throughout the length of the contract and while prices may increase, you may benefit should wholesale prices for energy fall. It’s also worth mentioning that out of contract tariffs, also known as deemed rates, tend to be dearer and will be levied if your supplier has rolled you automatically onto a new contract. For any busy business owner looking to switch to a cheap business gas supplier, then there are considerations and a big market to examine and the friendly team of experts at D-Energi can help you.

Why Your Commercial Energy Prices Aren’t Getting Cheaper

by Simon Thompson
 
As a busy business owner, you may follow the advice to check potential new energy providers when your firm needs a new supply contract but there may be reasons why your commercial energy prices aren’t getting cheaper. One of these reasons could be down to the fact that you are not switching energy providers to access a cheaper deal since remaining with the same supplier may mean your unit rates never decrease, which means your bills remain the same or go up. In addition, your supplier may roll you over onto a deemed contract with higher rates automatically because you failed to take action in the window of opportunity when they contacted you with details of your next year’s contract. Unless your firm is a micro-business, then you may find getting out of a deemed contract difficult and you may need to see out the deal until it ends, even though it is at a higher rate than a rival supplier will offer. Source a cheaper commercial energy quote It’s this ability to source a cheaper commercial energy quote when necessary that will help you and your business reduce overheads and boost profitability but the route to do so can appear to be confusing. As a business owner, you could contact energy suppliers directly and try to compare their offers but this may be more difficult since each offer is bespoke to your firm’s needs. Or you could use a comparison site to compare commercial energy deals between providers and then speak with the recommended provider to organise your bespoke deal. Again, this can be time-consuming to arrange. One of the best ways to scour the market in a bid to find cheaper commercial energy quotes is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who will search the entire market of providers to find a deal that meets your needs. Offers from the new commercial energy provider Among the offers from a new commercial energy provider is the ability to have an energy consultancy undertaken. This energy consultancy will help you reduce your energy usage and deliver larger savings on your outgoings. In addition to finding a cheaper deal and checking your previous bills, the energy consultant may recommend various tips to reduce everyday usage of energy, including switching to low energy lighting that is more efficient or investing in new equipment that uses less energy. For more help and information about understanding your commercial energy bill and why it’s not getting any cheaper, then you need to speak with the D-Energi team.
