Access Low Business Gas Prices per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
As a small business owner, there’s no doubt that every penny counts and you should not be paying more for your energy than is necessary which means you need to access low business gas prices per kWh (kilowatt hour). By doing so, you could save hundreds of pounds off your gas and electricity bills every year. To help you achieve this, there’s a team of experts at D-Energi waiting for your call to show you how this is possible. But why should a small business look at their energy prices per kilowatt hour? The answer is that this will give a better indication of what potential savings can be made. Compare business electricity prices per kWh If you’ve been on the same energy tariff for a long time, then it’s likely that you haven’t shopped around to compare business electricity prices per kWh, or for gas for that matter. The main issue to appreciate is that businesses will be spending more on their energy needs than they would at home but unlike our domestic supply, there’s no such thing as an off-the-shelf tariff. That’s because each energy provider will calculate their potential business energy contract on an individual basis. This means that their offer is bespoke, which also makes it a tad more difficult working out exactly how much your business should be paying for its electricity and gas. But by using the price per kilowatt hour, then you will have a clearer idea. Business electricity prices per kWh When shopping for business electricity prices per kWh, you will find that these rates will vary between suppliers and opting for the lowest rate may not be the cheapest option. While that may sound like a contradiction, as a business owner you will also need to look at the potential supplier’s standing charge which could be much more than their rivals. This means there are no savings to be enjoyed because what you’ll be spending less per kilowatt hour you will be spending more on the fee that pays for the delivery of energy to your premises and helping pay to maintain the National Grid. There’s no need to make the issue of accessing low business gas prices per kWh, or indeed electricity prices, more difficult than it needs to be and the D-Energi team can help you navigate these markets to find the best deal for your needs.

Does Your Firm Compare Energy Prices?

by Simon Thompson
 
If your firm is looking for cheaper energy costs then the best way of doing this is to compare energy prices between providers. There are ways of doing this quickly so you can save money and time to focus on your everyday business needs. The most effective way is to contact the D-Energi experts who can access the whole marketplace to find the energy deal that will best meet your needs today and in the future. Otherwise, you may be a busy business owner and you are faced with the prospect of spending time and energy searching for cheaper business energy prices to reduce your bills. This exercise can also be a daunting undertaking. Cheaper business energy prices per kWh The most effective way of accessing cheaper bills is to compare cheaper business energy prices per kWh between providers. You will need to switch to a tariff that has a lower unit rate than you are currently being charged so you are paying less for the energy you use. However, there are other costs that make-up your monthly electricity bill and there are two costs you should pay attention to. The first is the unit cost, which is the price being paid for every unit of electricity you use which is measured in kilowatt hours or kWh. While you may find a deal that has a lower kilowatt hour price, you need to appreciate that the standing charge, which is a daily amount charged for maintaining the National Grid and delivering electricity to your premises, may be dearer. Cheaper business electricity rates per kWh What you really need is a supplier offering a lower standing charge, as well as cheaper business electricity rates per kWh for your firm’s needs. This should mean that you will pay less for your electricity with a new provider but it’s still worth checking the marketplace to ensure that you are doing so. You may also need to appreciate the difference between a fixed and flexible tariff and there may be an opportunity to access cheaper prices by signing up for more than a year. But how do you find these cheaper prices? You could contact suppliers directly but this is time-consuming or you could use a comparison site but this may not search the entire marketplace. Instead, you may find it more rewarding and quicker to speak with the D-Energi team who can search the whole marketplace to find and compare energy prices between suppliers and organise the switchover process to a cheaper energy provider that better meets your needs.

How to Carry Out A Business Electricity Comparison

by Simon Thompson
 
Since electricity is a key utility for most firms and organisations, it’s important to carry out a business electricity comparison exercise to ensure you’re not overpaying for this. There are simple steps needed when looking for a new business electricity supplier and how to switch to their service. Firstly, finding the best tariff deal that will meet your firm’s needs can be tricky but using the expertise and experience of D-Energi means the process becomes much simpler. You will need to appreciate that when you compare business electricity prices there are several factors that suppliers will take into account including the size of your premises, the number of people in there and how much electricity you consume. The location of your business will also have an effect on the prices being charged. A business energy comparison The other big issue when a firm undertakes a business energy comparison is understanding how the bills are made up. This means there is a need to appreciate that the ‘unit cost’ is the amount paid per unit of electricity or gas that is used by a business. It’s measured in kilowatt hours or kWh. There’s also a standing charge, which is the fee levied every day to help maintain the National Grid and cover the costs for delivering electricity and gas to your premises. Business gas comparison exercise As with sourcing a new electricity provider, when you begin a business gas comparison exercise you will have to appreciate that the energy prices being quoted are based on wholesale costs. However, these will vary from day-to-day and they can be difficult to predict and will, inevitably, increase during cold winter months. Essentially, while business prices tend to be less expensive than for our homes do not forget VAT is charged at 20% and not at 5% as for domestic dwellings. You also need to appreciate the difference between a fixed rate and a flexible tariff when you begin a comparison exercise but you could access the experience of a team that deals with this issue every day. The other big advantage for doing so is that they will have access to every supplier and will be able to get the best prices when doing so. This means contacting the friendly team at D-Energi who can help you carry out a business electricity comparison, and also for gas, to ensure you access the best deal possible to meet your everyday business needs.

Get A Business Electricity Quote From A New Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
Electricity procurement for most firms and organisations is an important part of keeping costs under control, which means finding a business electricity quote from a new supplier every year. While many small firms may not have the time or the inclination to carry out the search when their current provider gets in touch with details of their next year’s contract, there’s growing demand to use energy brokers and consultants. Indeed, one survey says that around 60% of energy contracts are procured this way in the UK. For those who do not have experience of the marketplace, then it makes sense to utilise the expertise of those who do rather than using internal resources for energy purchasing requirements. Sourcing a new business energy quote The other issue for using a third-party when it comes to sourcing a new business energy quote for a firm’s needs is that they offer a fresh and independent approach. By doing so, they can evaluate any energy procurement opportunities that can add value to a firm. This approach will deliver tangible results and highlight areas that can be improved that your business may not have identified previously. By using energy consultants, a firm is also accessing the expertise of those who work with a wide range of organisations with different ideas and approaches that can be applied to your firm’s circumstances. This, in turn, will deliver the savings on your energy overheads that you are looking for. Finding a new business gas quote This exercise also extends to finding a new business gas quote and along with delivering a cheaper gas supplier, there may be the potential to access a consultancy service. An energy consultant will be able to analyse how and when you are using your energy and recommend ways of reducing consumption to deliver long-term savings that lower overheads. On top of this, a consultant can also look at the type of contract you are on to see whether it is really suitable and look at previous bills to see whether you have been overcharged at any point. Not everyone will want to take up the offer of a consultancy and may simply want to reduce their energy bills by switching providers – which is often the easiest and quickest way of achieving this. If you and your business are interested in a business electricity quote, then it’s important that you deal with experts who understand the market so you should contact the friendly team at D-Energi today.
