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.

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.

Tips to Carry Out a Business Energy Comparison Effectively

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for tips to carry out a business energy comparison exercise effectively, then this article will help. The best and easiest way to compare the offers between business energy providers is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the entire market and can find a deal that will best meet your needs. Alternatively, you could speak with a potential energy provider individually, give them your details and see what they have to offer. This process can be confusing and time-consuming because each supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal so undertaking a like-for-like analysis may become difficult. Undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers This also extends to undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers to find a cheaper deal because of the way providers put their bills together. You’ll need to appreciate the unit charge for each deal and also the standing charge; the unit charge is for the actual energy used by your business, while the standing charge is to help pay for the supply via the National Grid to your premises. There’s no doubt though that undertaking a business electricity comparison exercise will be time well spent and the optimum time to do this is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract rates. Failing to search for a better deal may see your business being moved onto a ‘deemed’ rate, which tends to be pricier than those being offered to new customers. This is always best avoided. Undertake a business gas comparison exercise This issue of being rolled over automatically onto a more expensive tariff also extends to gas suppliers, so you should undertake a business gas comparison exercise as well. Perhaps the easiest way to do this quickly is to use an online comparison site for gas and electricity to see what the potential offers are and whether you will save any money on your overheads. The only issue with these sites is that they may not search the entire marketplace, so you may miss out on cheaper and better deals from other providers not listed on the comparison site. Also, because a new supplier must offer a bespoke deal, you will still need to contact them and give them your details so they can tailor their offering to your needs. It’s much easier to carry out a business energy comparison by simply asking the experienced team at D-Energi what is available for your firm and they can do this in a few minutes by searching the whole marketplace and take care of the switchover process as well.

How to Get A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
The process to get a cheaper business electricity supplier is not only straightforward but it’s also a simple one as well. The government is encouraging more firms to switch electricity suppliers on a regular basis which will help lower prices and also stimulate competition in the marketplace as suppliers compete to offer the very best prices. Unfortunately, a government survey has revealed that 40% of firms and organisations in the UK haven’t bothered to switch their electricity supplier so they are likely to be paying more than they should be doing for their electricity needs. Indeed, this comparison exercise between business electricity suppliers should be carried out every year to ensure your firm is not overpaying on its energy bills. And considering it can only take a few minutes to carry out, the potential returns make this a financially attractive undertaking. Find cheaper business electricity rates The process to find cheaper business electricity rates could see a firm contacting providers directly or using one of the online comparison sites. The first course of action may be time-consuming and there may be better deals out there, particularly if your search is restricted to the ‘big six’ energy providers because they may offer similar deals. The second course of action also has issues as the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace so there may be better providers available with lower tariffs and you’ll still need to speak with the provider recommended by the site. That is because all electricity providers need to offer a bespoke deal to ensure it meets the needs of the business or organisation. Finding cheaper and better business electricity prices It’s this element of finding cheaper and better business electricity prices that makes comparing quotes on a like-for-like basis difficult. Despite this, there is a potential for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds every year with larger firms potentially saving several thousands of pounds to make this an exercise worth undertaking. And let’s not forget that most business owners simply don’t have a lot of time to spare when it comes to comparing business energy quotes because they can spend the time doing something more effective within the business. However, with just one phone call to the team of experts at D-Energi, it is possible to find out how you can get a cheaper business electricity supplier and save money on your overheads.
