Tips to Access Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms and organisations will be looking to monitor their overheads on a regular basis and these tips to access cheap business energy deals may help cut costs. This reduction in outgoings will also boost profitability and you should also be able to boost your green credentials also. The most obvious way is to switch to a new business energy tariff from a provider who will meet your needs. The best time for doing this is when your current energy supplier gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract; it may also be worthwhile renegotiating with your current supplier for a better deal. Access cheap business electricity deals Once your firm or organisation has decided to look at whether there are cost savings to be made, then you can access cheap business electricity deals by using online comparison sites. There are lots of these sites available and they are easy to use, but they may not be searching the entire marketplace for the supply of business electricity. Also, while these sites may appeal to a business owner struggling for time, the site itself will highlight a potential deal but you’ll still need to speak with the supplier because this must be a bespoke offering. Firms and organisations can also contact energy providers directly but this can be a time-consuming way to find a cheaper deal and you’ll need to give providers the same details every time. The obvious downside to this exercise is that you will probably miss out on cheaper and better deals from other providers because you aren’t searching the entire market. Cheap business gas deal The sites can also be used for those wanting a cheap business gas deal, and while it is not possible to get a dual fuel deal like we can for our homes, you can get electricity and gas supplied from the same provider. Other tips for reducing your energy bills is to sign up for a deal of more than one year and there are providers available who may offer impressive terms for up to five years. This is a sound solution for those who believe that energy prices may increase in the short-term and help with cash flow planning. However, the quickest and easiest way for a firm to access cheap business energy deals is to speak with the helpful team of experts at D-Energi who can search the entire marketplace and find a deal that will meet your needs and reduce costs.

Why Your Firm Will Benefit when You Switch Energy Providers

by Simon Thompson
 
No-one, including firms and organisations, wants to be paying more than they should be doing for anything which is why your firm could benefit when you switch energy providers. This might be a topic that turns some business owners off, after all, a government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never bothered switching energy providers. This inactivity probably means they are overpaying for their energy needs because they’ve been moved across to a ‘deemed’ rate automatically. The best time to see whether there are cheaper providers out there is when your current supplier contacts your business to tell you what your next year’s tariff will be. Undertake an energy switch between suppliers This is a great opportunity to undertake an energy switch between suppliers and potentially save a large amount from your overheads. While this is an exercise all firms should undertake every year, the amount you can save will vary and this depends on where your firm is located, how much energy you use and which industry you are in. It’s also relatively straightforward, finding a new supplier; you could contact potential suppliers directly or use an online comparison site for this purpose. The issue with the first route is that you may restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ suppliers which, while being well-known, may also offer fairly similar offers which make switching irrelevant. The issue with the second route is that the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace and you’ll still need to speak with the recommended provider and give them your details so they can tailor an offering to meet your needs. Accessing cheaper prices for your energy needs There is a third, potentially easier way, of accessing cheaper prices for your energy needs and the switching process is taken care of. In addition, the real attraction to this third route is that it only takes a few minutes for an expert to search the whole of the energy supply marketplace in the UK to find a deal or tariff that will meet your needs. It’s also possible to sign up for a deal that impresses you for several years, which will bring peace of mind should you believe that energy prices may increase over the next year or so. For those interested in this quick and easy way to switch energy providers, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi who will be able to find a new deal and take care of the switchover process in just a few minutes.

Are All Business Energy Suppliers the Same?

by Simon Thompson
 
It may be tempting for the busy business owner to believe that all business energy suppliers are the same but that’s not the case at all. Indeed, since deregulation, the rise in the number of suppliers means that competition has increased greatly which, in turn, has led to lower prices for all firms if they shop around. It’s this issue of searching for a new provider which may put off some firms as being too time-consuming and believing that all of their offers will be similar. If your business restricts its search for a new energy supplier to the ‘Big Six’ firms then you may find that their offerings are more or less the same but if you widen your search to a newer, smaller firm then you will find there’s the potential for big savings to be enjoyed. Source new business electricity suppliers The best time to source new business electricity suppliers is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract which is a great prompt to find a new supplier. It’s also possible to sign up for a great deal for one, two, three or even five years. This may help some firms with their cash flow predictions and bring peace of mind if they believe that electricity rates will rise in the near future. There are various ways of sourcing a new electricity provider and you could contact each one individually, but this may become time-consuming or you could use a comparison website. These are very popular and will fairly quickly give you an idea of what the market rate is for a business of your size and demand. The downside to using a comparison website is that it may not be searching the whole of the business electricity supply marketplace and you’ll still need to speak with a supplier directly, so they can put together a bespoke offer. Looking for business gas suppliers That might not be so attractive to a business owner struggling to find the time to search the market and they may also be looking for business gas suppliers too. The same principle applies and you could contact suppliers individually or use a comparison website to carry out a quick search of what gas offers are available. If you are a business owner and you are short on time to search the market, then you’re not alone; a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms and organisations in the UK have never bothered switching their energy suppliers, so they are probably paying more than they should do for their energy needs. It doesn’t have to be this way and a conversation with the experts at D-Energi will soon reveal whether all business energy suppliers are the same and what the potential savings could be for those who undertake a switch of energy providers which the D-Energi team can take care of also.
