Would An Energy Consultancy Work For You?

by Simon Thompson
 
Accessing cheaper energy deals is what firms should do when their supplier’s current contract comes up for renewal but this is also a good time to consider an energy consultancy having a look to see what savings can be made and which tariff would best suit their needs. Indeed, while many firms will be happy to visit several online comparison websites to find better energy deals, they could save themselves a lot of time by simply speaking with energy consultants who will know what the latest deals and tariffs are. The consultants can also use their experience to see whether the firm is on a suitable tariff by simply looking at their current bills. But an energy consultancy would do simply more than just finding some of the best business energy deals around. Energy services provided by a consultancy The energy services provided by a consultancy will also look at introducing energy efficiencies that will help the organisation save even more money on their energy bills and boost their environmental credentials at the same time. The consultants will do this by looking at how the firm currently operates and then highlight ways of doing what they do in a better way without using so much energy. They will also highlight energy saving measures that will be easy and cost-effective to introduce. Ultimately, the energy consultant will bring about changes that will deliver long-term cost savings so, in addition to a cheaper energy tariff, the potential savings being made by firms and organisations could be substantial. Firms have never switched energy supplier Indeed, a survey by the Competition and Markets Authority underlines this issue by revealing that 40% of firms have never switched energy supplier. This means they have probably been paying more than they need to for their energy needs because they are on a ‘deemed’ contract where the rates are more expensive. By simply switching energy supplier, an organisation could save a substantial amount of money and the amount will vary depending on how much energy the firm uses and where they are in the country. The size of the firm may also have an input here as well. It may also be a requirement from the firm to boost their green credentials by switching to a supplier of renewable energy and the energy consultancy will be able to arrange this since there are specialist renewable energy suppliers available.   For more help about what an energy consultancy can do for a business to lower bills and boost long-term savings, then speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.

Enjoy the Best Cheap Business Gas Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
For businesses both small and large, the best way to enjoy a cheap business gas supplier is to use the services of an organisation that understands how the energy market works to find the best deals. There’s no doubt that by finding the right gas tariff, a firm will save money on their energy bill and boost profits by doing so. However, they will need to source quotes from separate suppliers in order to compare the available tariffs effectively. This is essential because the price of business gas being charged to a firm will depend on the organisation’s circumstances. Looking for cheap business gas and electric deals This need to source individual quotes will be the same for any organisation looking for cheap business gas and electric deals and there are a number of issues they will need to consider, which will include: Appreciating how much gas and electricity the firm will be using The business size since some tariffs may not apply The firm’s address as some energy firms may not be able to supply   Other issues that need to be addressed for any firm looking for better gas and electric deals is whether they are thinking of expanding over the next year or two or indeed whether they will move premises. This last issue may also have an impact on the deal being offered, since firms with more than one premises may be able to enjoy better energy prices. Also, while many firms may be happy to use online comparison services there are some issues with doing so. Price for a new energy deal The best reason for using these sites is that the firm will be able to access lots of quotes from different suppliers and these will help them negotiate a price for a new energy deal. There are two issues to bear in mind and the first is that the comparison website may not be looking at the entire business energy market. The second point is that the excellent deal being offered on the site may not be the same when the firm speaks with the supplier directly to negotiate a deal. However, they will be able to use the information they’ve gleaned from an online comparison website to help negotiate a better deal because these prices will be the current market rates for energy.   Having said that, the best way for a firm to find a cheap business gas supplier is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who will have access to the latest and best deals and tariffs available for the firm’s needs.

by Simon Thompson
 
The ability for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers is much easier than many of them probably realise. Indeed, a Competition and Markets Authority survey that around 40% of firms have never switched energy suppliers so they are probably paying more for their energy needs than necessary. A simple call to switching experts such as the D-Energi team will reveal how much a business can save but this depends on the nature of the industry they are in. In many ways, swithcing business energy suppliers is rather like that for switching suppliers for our homes. Find a commercial energy quote The first step is to find a commercial energy quote the business likes and opt for a tariff that best meets their needs. It’s also possible that the firm can save time and energy from shopping around a vairety of suppliers by suing experts who understand how the commercial energy market works. They will have access to the latest plans and tariffs and can then deal with any relevant paperwork to switch between suppliers. Firms also need to appreciate, in case they may be worried, that there will be no loss of supply during the switchover process. Finding better commercial energy prices Indeed, finding better commercial energy prices is easy to do with the help of the team at D-Energi though they could use online comparison websites to get a feel for the market rates being charged. Since deregulation, lots of energy suppliers have entered the market and are offering a wide variety of deals, tariffs and plans to attract customers. This was the ultimate aim of deregulation with the government believing that this would lead to greater competition, lower prices and better levels of customer service. It’s easy for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers This has now been achieved and while it’s easy for firms to switch commercial energy suppliers, they will need to pay any outstanding bills before the process can take place. In addition, firms cannot switch suppliers until a window of opportunity opens in their current contract; they cannot break an energy contract for a cheaper deal. Some energy suppliers may allow this to happen but they may also charge exit fees – which may be more than the firm will make in savings.   For more help and information about how firms can switch commercial energy suppliers to save money on their overheads, then it’s time to speak with the helpful team at D-Energi.

by Simon Thompson

This is where the expertise of a team such as the advisors at D-Energi will come to the fore since they can take on this responsibility to help deliver big cost savings. While the savings will range between businesses and is dependent on their energy use, some firms may see savings of up to 70% on their current tariff. D-Energi team can also help compare business electricity prices On top of helping source cheaper business gas prices, the D-Energi team can also help compare business electricity prices too to find a deal that is not only suitable but will also save substantial amounts of money. Let’s not forget that by reducing overheads, the firm is boosting their profitability. It’s important that should firm use a third-party to find better energy deals that they are impartial and look at the entire gas and electricity supply market.
