by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking to compare business gas prices and want expert help to check whether a deal is a great deal or not, then this article will help. Essentially, the team of experts at D-Energi will be able to offer their expertise to not only look at the deal that’s being offered but search the entire market and potentially find a better one. When you try to compare business gas prices, then you may be short of time as a busy business owner and may simply decide to contact two or three commercial gas suppliers. You’ll then need to give each of them the same details and they’ll give you a bespoke offer. Compare a commercial gas quote between suppliers One of the big issues when you need to compare a commercial gas quote between suppliers, is that it’s difficult to do so on a like-for-like basis. That’s because every supplier uses different criteria to put their bespoke offer together. On top of this, you may also opt to use an online comparison site to find a better business gas deal. While this is a quick and straightforward way to find an offer, the site is probably not looking at the entire market so there could be better deals available elsewhere. Search for the cheapest gas tariff It’s this knowledge to look elsewhere in the search for the cheapest gas tariff that will be of the biggest help to a busy business owner. This is where the D-Energi team will excel because they can search the entire marketplace to find a deal that is suitable for your business and its current and future needs. There’s also the potential of sourcing suppliers with other benefits, for example, offering an energy consultancy to enhance the savings you will make when you switch business gas suppliers. An energy consultancy, for those who may not appreciate it, is an effective way for a firm to reduce its demand for commercial gas and by reducing this demand they will boost their savings – and their green credentials which is becoming increasingly important. The consultancy may also look at your previous bills to see whether you may have been over-charged for your gas needs. If you are looking for expert help to compare business gas prices between providers, then you need to speak with the friendly D-Energi team today.

Tips for an Energy Consultancy

by Simon Thompson
 
One of the issues that we regularly highlight with D-Energi articles is the effectiveness of an energy consultancy in helping to reduce overheads for firms. Here we will look at some of the tips and reasons why all businesses, regardless of their size or the industry they work in, should contemplate considering using a consultant for reducing their bills. It’s important to appreciate that a consultant will not only be giving your firm energy advice but they will also be able to look at your energy bills to see whether you are on the correct deal and whether your supplier has been charging you correctly. This alone could be a worthwhile undertaking for the consultant who will also be able to offer advice to help your business make the right decisions when it comes to sourcing energy supply. Experience with energy services A consultant who has lots of experience with energy services will be able to look at your energy usage levels to see whether it’s worthwhile switching from a peak period of demand to an off-peak period to save money. On top of this, the consultancy will also look at the various ways of powering your business and provide an analysis of what can be done to reduce costs. For example, this may include switching to a supplier offering green energy or installing solar power to help underpin your firm’s own business ethos. Reducing carbon emissions is a major part of business life today and a consultant will be able to provide evidence of the steps you have taken which will offer customers a good impression of your business. Advice and guidance from an energy service company But it’s also important to appreciate that the advice and guidance from an energy service company is not just about making recommendations just the once. There will be a need for regular updates for some firms to ensure that any recommended steps have been achieved and to help with future energy reduction processes. This will also mean that your firm will enjoy advice about the latest energy prices and where you can get the best possible deals – and they will help ensure that the supplier delivers on their offers and prices. The ultimate aim is to reduce consumption and overheads to boost profitability and it’s here that the D-Energi team can help with an energy consultancy offering.

Switch to a Cheap Business Gas Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
Perhaps one of the most effective ways to reduce energy bills is to switch to a cheap business gas supplier. Obviously, you can save by switching your electricity provider as well and for any firm that begins this process, then you may be surprised at how many energy suppliers are available for meeting your needs. It’s also important that you don’t restrict your search for a new provider to one of the ‘Big Six’ suppliers since there are smaller firms available with more to offer. However, it’s not just about accessing cheap unit prices and some suppliers will have better levels of customer service and some could even offer an energy consultancy to help you reduce the amount of energy your firm uses, so your bills fall by much more. Enjoy cheap business gas and electric bills This energy consultancy will help you enjoy cheap business gas and electric bills over the long term, and you’ll also be boosting your firm’s environmental credentials. However, you’ll need ‘buy-in’ from all members of staff and they need to appreciate that by using less energy on a daily basis, they will be boosting profitability, which is good for everybody in the business. Other energy suppliers will offer other perks, so it is always worth looking closely at what the potential new energy providers will offer you and your business so you get the best deal possible. While you could contact these providers directly, you may find this a time-consuming exercise and you can also use a comparison website aimed at businesses but they may not be searching all of the suppliers. D-Energi will help you compare business energy per kWh In addition, you could contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will help you compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt hour) prices to ensure that not only will you be paying less per unit of energy used but explain why you need to access a cheap standing charge too. The standing charge is an amount levied to help pay the National Grid for delivering energy to your premises but this is not a set fee and can vary between providers. This is where some suppliers may offer a very low unit rate for your energy supply but a much dearer standing charge so there are no savings to be made when you switch. And when you speak with them directly, you’ll need to have in mind whether you have expansion plans because their bespoke deal will be based on your predicted energy usage. Switching to a cheap business gas supplier, and also an electric electricity provider does not have to be complicated or time-consuming when you to speak with the D-Energi team to find the best bespoke energy deals available for your business.

Understanding Your Commercial Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to understanding your commercial energy prices, then a firm’s electricity and gas bills are not always the easiest to understand. Not only does a business owner need to appreciate the layout and terminology, but there are also various figures and abbreviations to appreciate. This means that, understandably, most business owners don’t try to work out their bills to see whether they can access cheaper commercial energy prices with a new supplier. One issue is that businesses need to appreciate the total amount being paid over a year and they may have questions about why their commercial energy prices don’t appear to be falling. Searching for a commercial energy quote Part of the problem when searching for a commercial energy quote from a new provider is that they may offer a cheaper unit price – that’s the amount charged for the gas and electricity used by your firm. However, they may charge much more than you currently pay for the standing charge, which is the amount paid to the National Grid for the supply of gas to your premises. Since this isn’t a set fee, it does vary hugely between providers and it may help explain why your commercial energy bill never appears to reduce. And there’s more to your bill than accessing cheaper unit rates so you will need to pay particular attention to the standing charge and other fees that may be incurred. Reduce commercial energy overheads In addition, all businesses can take steps to reduce their commercial energy overheads by reducing the amount of energy that they use on a daily basis. There are simple steps that firms can take such as introducing newer and more efficient energy equipment, particularly for computers and printers, and also switching lightbulbs to energy efficient alternatives. Indeed, upgrading your firm’s lighting could save a substantial amount every year, along with turning off lights when they are not being used and removing unnecessary lamps in areas that are brightly lit. It may also make sense to introduce dimmer controls so employees can adjust brightness levels to suit their tastes. It’s also possible to find a new supplier offering an energy consultancy to help a firm reduce its energy consumption levels so that they enjoy lower bills – and boost their ‘green’ credentials. When it comes to understanding commercial energy prices and to avoid expensive standing charges, then you need to speak with a friendly team at D-Energi.
