Moving to New Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to moving to new business energy suppliers, you should rely on the expertise of the D-Energi team to find the best deal possible. The process to compare and then switch your business energy provider is straightforward and will mean: Approaching providers for a business electricity or gas quote Choose the energy tariff that will best meet your needs Apply for your energy contract Tell your current supplier you are switching to a new provider.   And that’s essentially the process for finding and then moving to a new business energy provider. Finding new business electricity suppliers However, while the process is straightforward, finding new business electricity suppliers, and also for gas, means searching among energy providers for the best deal. For a busy business owner, this is easier said than done so they might be tempted to contact potential providers directly and only speak to a few of them. Alternatively, they could use a business energy comparison website to find a new supplier, but a business owner needs to be aware that the website may only be asking a select few suppliers to deliver a quote. This means cheaper and better deals will not be flagged-up and some providers offer other incentives to attract you as a new customer. Also, it will still be necessary to speak with a new supplier because they must offer a bespoke deal that’s tailored to meeting your needs. Among these incentives is the opportunity of having a dedicated account manager or even an energy consultancy to help you reduce gas and electricity consumption levels to deliver larger savings. Finding cheaper business gas suppliers The savings that can be made by switching energy providers can be substantial, particularly for small businesses and while firms may spend less on their gas bills, it’s still worth finding cheaper business gas suppliers. By reducing overheads, profitability is boosted and the best time to search the market is when your current provider tells you of your next year’s contract details. This then offers an opportunity to find new gas and electricity providers and using the current quote as a benchmark, you can then find and analyse a range of quotes from business energy suppliers. Or, you could have the experts at D-Energi do the legwork on your behalf and then help you move to a new business energy supplier to reduce overheads and they can do this every year and deal with the paperwork too.

Save On Business Electricity Today!

by Simon Thompson
 
If your firm or organisation is looking to save on business electricity costs and would like to check the entire market for prices, then the D-Energi team can help. It’s important to compare business electricity prices between a range of providers, which is something that may not happen when you contact providers directly. Also, while business electricity comparison websites have grown in popularity, you should check to see how many suppliers are quoting for your needs. You may be surprised to find that it’s usually not the entire marketplace being asked to quote and there may be cheaper deals and tariffs available that you will not hear about. Compare business energy per kWh Since energy costs are one of the largest overheads for a firm, it’s also important that you compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt-hour) tariffs effectively. The amount of energy your firm consumes is measured in kilowatt-hours and this unit rate will be either higher or lower than you currently pay. However, the tariff will also include a standing charge, which may cause some confusion but this is an amount paid every day for the National Grid to deliver energy to your premises. It’s the standing charge that can vary between suppliers and you may find a provider offering a cheaper unit rate but a much higher standing charge. This is why you must compare tariffs and deals for the annual potential cost of a new contract, so you’ll need to understand the rate being levied in kilowatt-hours. Compare business electricity per kWh Understanding this difference when you compare business electricity per kWh does make the switching process slightly more complicated than when choosing a supplier for our homes. However, it’s still a worthwhile undertaking since the savings, even for a small business, can be very large and range from hundreds of pounds to thousands of pounds. A lot depends on where your business is located, the type of industry you are in, how much electricity you consume every year and how many employees you have. There are other criteria too but the D-Energi team understands how the business electricity supply market works and can help you navigate to a better deal. If you want to save on business electricity costs today, then you need to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can help you achieve this by scouring the entire market to find a deal that will best meet your needs.

Business Half Hourly Electricity Tariffs

by Simon Thompson
 
In order to access the best business half hourly electricity tariffs, your firm or organisation will need half hour meters installed. For those who may not be aware, the meters are installed for large uses of electricity, typically consuming more than 100 kW of energy during a half-hour period in the day. With the meters sending this data to the electricity supplier every 30 minutes means there’s no longer a need for estimated bills and the firm will enjoy accurate billing. This information can also be utilised by the firm to pinpoint where potential energy savings can be made, for example, switching production to a cheaper time of day. However, the same consumption data can be used by a potential new half hour electricity provider to deliver a new deal based on accurate readings. Finding a new half hourly electricity quote One of the issues for having half-hour electricity meters installed is that the procurement process in finding a new half hourly electricity quote is more complex. Whereas a smaller business can simply use a variety of sources to get a new electricity quote, that’s not quite the case for large consumers. For those firms with 00 meters installed, the process to find a new half hourly electricity provider is a tad more complicated. However, the process of switching is just as straightforward. A business can simply contact their current supplier to find out what their rates will be for their next year’s contract and use the services of a broker with expertise in the sector to find a cheaper deal. Find a cheap half hourly electricity deal This is where the friendly team at D-Energi can help find a cheap half hourly electricity deal by looking at the wholesale market. With a few details such as the meter number and address, along with a data release letter, the team can access your consumption data and begin a tendering process. This process will see all energy suppliers being invited to submit prices and your business or organisation will have a variety of tariffs to choose from. However, it also needs to be appreciated that the electricity supply market in the UK can be volatile, with wholesale prices changing on a regular basis. Despite this, the D-Energi team has access to the entire market and the best business half hourly electricity tariffs to help you reduce your energy costs and boost profitability, so you should contact the team today.

Can You Compare Business Gas Prices?

by Simon Thompson
 
It may appear to be an unusual question to ask a business owner, but can you compare business gas prices? However, the question should really ask whether you can effectively compare gas prices between business suppliers because there’s a lot of competition to attract you as a customer but finding the best deals is not always that straightforward. While you could contact a gas supplier directly, you may also be tempted to use one of the business gas comparison websites to find out whether there are cheaper suppliers available. While this process will take a few minutes, you will need to appreciate that the comparison website may only be searching a select number of potential suppliers, which means there could be better-priced deals that you will be unaware of. Also, contacting suppliers directly can be time-consuming since you will give the same details every time and there’s a risk that you will restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ business gas suppliers and the deals may be fairly similar, which may put you off from switching. Find the cheapest business gas prices available It’s this ability to search the entire marketplace to find the cheapest business gas prices available that is the offering from the experts at D-Energi. This means that a busy business owner will be able to search the entire market in order to find the best deal that is currently available for meeting their needs. They will then pay less and boost profitability and the D-Energi team can also find the providers who have other incentives including an energy consultancy to help you reduce gas consumption levels to reduce bills even further and boost your firm’s green credentials. As mentioned, the business gas supply market is a competitive one and prices do fluctuate on a regular basis and you will also need to understand the various terms to enjoy the best deal possible. Tell your supplier you are leaving The best time to check whether there are better deals available is when your current provider gets in touch with your next year’s contract details since this opens a window of opportunity for you to search the market and then tell your supplier you are leaving. There is no loss of supply when you do decide to switch providers and all that changes is that your bill will come from a different business gas supplier. The team at D-Energi can also take care of the switchover process and then monitor the marketplace so that when your deal is up for renewal, they will know whether the terms being offered are the best ones for meeting your business needs, or whether a different supplier is the one to move to. If you would like to compare business gas prices effectively so you can save money, then you need to contact the friendly team at D-Energi today.
