Save EVERY Time You Compare Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
Even though it can be a confusing process, your business can save every time you compare energy prices between suppliers. There’s the potential to substantially reduce overheads and every business should carry out this exercise every year. And since most businesses will be using more energy than the average home, it’s important to have control over how much you are being charged and to be on the correct business energy tariff that will meet your needs. Essentially, when comparing business energy rates between suppliers, there will be two types of contracts being offered. Appreciate what business energy prices per kWh The contracts will either be a flexible rate or a fixed tariff so it may pay to appreciate what business energy prices per kWh are. That’s because both types of these tariffs will offer a unit cost and both tariffs will have disadvantages and advantages. It’s important that you compare thoroughly all commercial energy tariffs from suppliers before making a decision to switch and the issue of business energy prices per kilowatt hour will play an important role in this process. But, like most things in life, you need to be aware of standing charges because the supplier may offer a low price per kilowatt hour but have a hefty standing charge instead. Indeed, what appears to be a great deal because of a low unit price may be no such thing once you calculate the real costs including the standing charge – which helps pay for the network to supply energy to your premises. Business electricity rates per kWh Most firms and organisations will sign up for a fixed rate contract where the business electricity rates per kWh are agreed for the next year. For cheaper rates, it is possible to sign up for a longer term business energy contract which may prove useful to some firms because it will help with cash flow and your firm will know what the energy bills are going to be. The alternative is to sign up to a flexible rate contract, some suppliers call them variable rate contracts, and these are linked in market activity. Essentially, the cost of your energy may fall or increase in the duration of your contract so in a severe winter, for example, you may see a variable business energy tariff being increased. The best way to save when you compare energy prices is to contact the team at D-Energi who have the expertise to search the entire marketplace and find a tariff that will not only meet your needs but be much cheaper as well.

How to Undertake a Business Electricity Comparison Exercise

by Simon Thompson
 
One effective way of reducing overheads is to undertake a business electricity comparison exercise between suppliers and switch to the cheapest provider. But how does a busy business owner go about doing this effectively? The short answer is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can access the entire marketplace and with a few details and a few minutes find a new electricity provider. It’s also possible to speak with electricity suppliers directly, give them the same details and they will then give you a quote – depending on the size of your business and energy needs, the industry you work in and also your location. However, comparing the offers between providers is not straightforward so you may find it easier to use a comparison website. A business gas comparison exercise As a busy business owner, you will find there are sites to enable a business gas comparison exercise to take place as well as searching for new electricity suppliers. There’s no doubt that the sites provide a quick way of finding out what the potential market offer will be for your business needs. However, the site may not search all of the potential suppliers so there could be better and cheaper deals available that will go unnoticed. That’s not the case when you use the D-Energi team who will strive to find the best deal that meets your needs and also find a supplier to offer other valuable add-ons, such as a business energy consultancy that will help your firm reduce the amount of energy it uses to help deliver impressive long-term savings. Undertake a business energy comparison exercise All firms and organisations should undertake a business energy comparison exercise every year to ensure that they are in control of their overheads and that these costs will not run out of control, particularly in a cold winter when the gas bill may rocket in value. For most firms, their energy bills are one of their biggest outgoings so it makes sense to check every year and this may be a rewarding exercise if you access a great deal and reduce your energy costs substantially. But you won’t be able to do that unless you begin the search and the best time is when your current supplier gets in touch with your next year’s deal. Also, if you haven’t switched for several years then you may have been moved to a deemed contract, which is more expensive but you won’t have to pay penalty fees to leave this contract. For more help and advice about how you can undertake a business electricity comparison exercise to reduce costs, then it’s time to contact the D-Energi team.

Get the Cheapest Business Energy Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses, whether they are large or small, will need to keep their overheads in check so finding the cheapest business energy quote will prove important. If it’s been a while since you last checked what providers are offering, how do you if you’re paying more than is necessary for your energy supply? The main purpose for going to the trouble of finding a cheap business energy quote is to get a better deal, but unless you’ve changed providers in recent years you may have been rolled over onto an automatic contract. This happens when you don’t renew without checking what other suppliers have an offer and you may be paying more than you have to for your energy, but you won’t have to pay penalties for leaving this type of contract early. The cheapest business electricity quote When scouring the marketplace for the cheapest business electricity quote you may be tempted to use one of the online comparison sites. This is a good idea if you want to find out what the potential market rate is for a business of your size and location. However, the website may not be searching all of the potential suppliers and the wide range of quotes being offered will reflect on the industry that you work in and whether you are interested in signing up for two or three years for a cheaper contract. The helpful team at D-Energi have lots of experience and can help talk through what potential electricity providers are wanting from you and also search the entire marketplace. Find the cheapest business gas quote This expertise also extends to those firms who are looking to find the cheapest business gas quote possible. As with electricity, the switchover process to a new gas provider is a straightforward one and there’s no loss of supply when you decide to switch providers. The only thing that will change is that your bill will come from your new provider. Unfortunately, government surveys have highlighted that around 40% of firms in this country have never bothered switching their energy supplier, so it’s likely they are paying more than is necessary for their energy supply. That’s a shame, since controlling overheads is an important element of running a successful business and accessing cheap energy quotes is an effective way of doing this. If you want to know more about how your firm can get the cheapest business energy quote, then it’s time to contact the D-Energi team.

Should You Switch Your Business Gas Supplier?

by Simon Thompson
 
As we head into the cold winter months, the question of energy bills may become acute and business owners may be asking whether they should switch their business gas supplier. Essentially, all firms and organisations should check that they are not paying more than is necessary for their gas supply needs. You could do this by contacting gas suppliers directly and getting a quote from them. The downside to this approach is that you may find comparing these deals on a like-for-like basis difficult because each supplier will tailor their offering to your needs with different criteria. Business gas renewal letter The best time to look at switching suppliers is when you receive a business gas renewal letter which will inform you of your next year’s deal. This is the prompt to find a new supplier and you can also use an online gas supplier comparison site. While the sites may give you an idea of the market rate for your firm’s needs, the downside is that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace, so you may miss out on better and cheaper deals. However, it’s still important that a firm carries out a comparison exercise every year to help ensure they keep a handle on their overheads and other potential increased costs, such as energy bills. Sourcing cheap business gas rates Potentially the easiest way of sourcing cheap business gas rates is to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi who will search the entire marketplace and deal with the switchover process as well. It’s at this point you should know when your business gas contract comes to an end so you do not pay termination fees by moving before this end date. It’s also worth noting whether your supplier has moved you automatically onto a deemed contract, which tends to be dearer, and if so you may not need to pay termination fees and can move freely from this. When looking for a new, cheaper gas supplier, then you’ll need other pieces of information and most of this will be found on the latest gas bill. Perhaps the most important is the gas meter number, so a potential supplier will know exactly where your business premises are. Also, there’s no loss of supply when you switch between providers. For more help and information about whether you should switch your business gas supplier and find out what the cheapest rates are, then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team.
