How to Source Cheap Business Gas and Electric Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
With growing competition in the marketplace, how will your firm source cheap business gas and electric prices and be reassured that they are the best prices available? There are various ways of doing this, in addition to speaking with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the latest offers, you could contact a potential energy supplier directly. Obviously, this can be a time-consuming processing and you will be giving the providers the same information every time and their quotes may be very similar which is why you may be interested in other services offered as part of their offer. For example, a new provider may offer a consultancy service to help you reduce your energy usage levels so your savings will be greater. These will be long-term cost saving that might boost your ‘green credentials’ too. Looking for a cheap business gas supplier Even for those firms looking for a cheap business gas supplier, there are big savings to enjoy but just how much will they be? It’s important to appreciate that your energy usage levels and your firm’s location have a bearing on the savings you could enjoy but it is possible for a one-man enterprise to save hundreds of pounds every year. That’s a big saving from overheads and an immediate boost to profitability. However, not all firms undertake a comparison exercise every year to ensure they are not paying more than they need to for their energy and the process for checking is straightforward and the switchover between suppliers is seamless. Sourcing a new commercial energy provider The time you spend sourcing a new commercial energy provider will be time well spent and with a government survey highlighting that 40% of firms have never switched providers means they could be paying more than they have to for their energy. There may be a range of reasons why this might be the case, for example, they may be reluctant to switch from one of the ‘Big Six’ energy providers to a smaller firm they may not have heard of previously. Also, they may not appreciate just how much money they can save on their overheads and for larger concerns the savings can be substantial indeed.   So, if you are looking to source cheap business gas and electric prices from a reputable provider and enjoy huge savings when switching, then it’s time to speak with the friendly D-Energi team who will be able to help.

All businesses will be needing energy for their every day needs but how do you find a commercial energy quote that will save your firm money? The easy way is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the latest deals and offers that will best meet your needs. Alternatively, you could contact commercial energy suppliers directly to see what prices they will quote for your needs. The rates being offered will be determined by how much energy you are using and where you are located. Access the best commercial energy prices To access the best commercial energy prices when speaking with a provider or using an online comparison site, you should have some details to hand so the energy provider can offer a bespoke quote. For example, this information will include: Your most recent electricity or gas bill The date when your current contract ends Your firm’s registration details Your MPRN or MPAN numbers, these are your meter numbers, will be helpful.   With this information, a new provider will know where your firm is and what your energy needs are and will create a bespoke offering that will meet your needs and, probably, be much cheaper than the prices you currently pay.

Don’t Just Save Money When You Compare Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
While it’s relatively easy for a firm or organisation to save money when switching energy providers, it’s not just about saving money when you compare business energy suppliers. That’s because many of the lesser-known suppliers will have other offerings which may prove to be attractive to your business and help you save even more money. In addition to offering better levels of customer service, a smaller business energy supplier may offer other things including an energy consultancy to help your firm use less energy and enjoy much lower energy bills as well. That’s on top of accessing cheaper prices. Their advice might range from installing automatic lights in rooms that only switch on when someone enters to investing in new equipment that uses less energy and will save money over its lifetime. There are lots of ideas that will save a firm money and it’s not just about common sense. Compare business electricity providers That’s because when you compare business electricity providers who are offering these consultancies they may also offer a service to check the current deal or tariff your firm is on to see if it’s possible to claim money back if you are on the wrong tariff. The consultancy will also analyse how you use energy to see if you could make substantial savings by switching to off-peak periods of usage or using their knowledge of the marketplace to access a specific deal. Unfortunately, most firms will opt to stick with the ‘Big Six’ energy providers because they are reassured by the fact they have heard of them. This may be a costly mistake. In addition, a survey conducted by the government revealed that around 40% of UK firms have never bothered switching energy suppliers which means they are more than likely to be paying more than they need to for their energy needs. That is a shame since by switching, you will be encouraging greater competition in the business energy supply marketplace. Firms looking to compare business gas suppliers This option also extends to those firms looking to compare business gas suppliers to meet their needs and again there’s lots of competition in this marketplace so you should be able to access lower prices. It also needs to be highlighted that when you are comparing business energy providers that these savings are available to firms and organisations of all shapes and sizes, regardless of the industry they work in and where they are located. The savings to be enjoyed will vary depending on how much energy you use but there is the opportunity to enjoy a substantial reduction in your firm’s overheads by simply switching business gas and electricity suppliers.   If you would like to know how much you could save when you compare business energy suppliers then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How Your Business Can Save with P272

by Simon Thompson
 
One of the big changes experienced by firms in recent years was over how they were billed for energy use which is why the understanding of the term P272 is important. Essentially, P272 describes the type of meter being used by a firm or organisation and will measure how much energy is being used more accurately. This means there will be no more estimated bills and a potential new business energy supplier will see how much energy you are using and when you use it. The meter sends this information to the supplier every 30 minutes which means they are sometimes referred to as half hourly, or HH, meters. P272 legislation The P272 legislation means that large energy users, they have meters with the number 05-08 in the top left-hand corner on the meter’s front, have been switched to the new arrangement. The deadline for having a half hourly meter was 1 April 2017 and should have been done automatically. If not, and you are on the wrong meter, then you need to contact your energy supplier or the D-Energi team. The aim of the P272 legislation was to help the suppliers of energy organise supplies more effectively because they could easily predict periods of demand more easily. By doing so, their savings could then be passed on to large energy users as a result for them to enjoy cheaper bills. This is part of a push by the government to help introduce more competition in the energy supply marketplace since a survey highlighted that 40% of firms have never switched so with more firms looking for new energy providers should lead to more competition and lower bills for all organisations. Introduction of P272 was by the industry regulator Ofgem The introduction of P272 was by the industry regulator Ofgem so if your firm is looking to renew your energy supply contract then this might be an important consideration. It may also be a confusing issue if you have been unaware of P272 or half hourly meters previously but the data from the meter should help you access cheaper deals. It’s also possible to use software to analyse the data produced by your P272 meter and you can use this to help reduce your energy usage levels. As mentioned earlier, a potential new energy supplier can also use this data to offer a bespoke deal that will meet your needs.   If your business is looking to save money on your energy supplies then it’s important to not only shop around for a new supplier but if you are a large user then understanding how P272 works for you is also crucial to access the best deals and, again, the D-Energi team can help with information and source a cheaper supplier.
