Time to Get A New Business Energy Quote?

by Simon Thompson
 
If your current business energy provider has been in touch with details of your next year’s contract, then this is the time to get a new business energy quote. That’s because failing to search the marketplace for a cheaper deal may see you being moved automatically to a tariff that could be much more expensive. This could be the price of inaction when spending just a few minutes searching for a new provider could save you a substantial amount of money on your overheads for the coming year. There are lots of energy providers available and you could contact them directly or use one of the energy comparison websites to find a deal to meet your needs. Looking for a business electricity quote So, for example, you may be looking for a business electricity quote from a new provider and while contacting suppliers directly can be time-consuming and distracting, the comparison site will be a quicker alternative. The issue here is that the comparison site may not search the entire marketplace which may mean you miss out on better and cheaper deals from other providers. Also, you will need to contact the provider recommended by the comparison site because all suppliers need to offer a bespoke deal to meet your needs. This means you’ll spend more time dealing with a new provider. One reason for searching the marketplace is that you could find a cheap deal from another provider and use this as a negotiating tactic to get a cheaper price from your current supplier. Looking for a new business gas quote It may also be that you are looking for a new business gas quote from a provider and you could follow the same steps as that for electricity detailed above. While it’s not possible to get a dual fuel deal for the business like we can for our homes, you could contact the same supplier to deliver both fuels for your needs. Switching to a new business gas or electricity provider is also seamless and there’s no loss of supply to your firm’s premises when you undertake the process. This should bring peace of mind to those who may be reluctant to switch. For more help and information about looking for a new business energy quote and the potential to save a substantial amount, then you need to speak with the expert team at D-Energi.

Is Your Business Gas Supplier The Cheapest?

by Simon Thompson
 
While it may appear to be a leading question, the answer to whether ‘Is your business gas supplier the cheapest?’ will be important. That’s because your firm could save a substantial amount by shopping around to find a better rate on the gas you use for your everyday business needs. There is a range of tariffs available and newer, smaller entrants to the business gas supply market have a range of tempting offers. You simply need to make the effort to find them. However, a lot will depend on your firm’s circumstances, for example, how much gas you use and where your firm is located. Sourcing cheaper business gas rates As result, sourcing cheaper business gas rates will be made easier by contacting suppliers directly or using one of the business gas comparison websites. By speaking with gas suppliers directly, you may find this time-consuming and a distraction if you are simply too busy to carry out any in-depth research. You could use a comparison site to save time but these may not search the whole marketplace for business gas supply and you will still need to speak with a supplier directly. That’s because their offer must be bespoke and it must meet your needs. The other issue to bear in mind is that because the business gas supplier must offer a tailored deal makes comparing a like-for-like business gas offering difficult. Researching the marketplace for a cheaper business gas supply However, it is worth spending the time researching the marketplace for a cheaper business gas supply and even a micro business could save a substantial amount every year. Obviously, larger concerns will save much more particularly if they are big gas users, for example, manufacturers and restaurants. Businesses will also need to decide whether they are looking for a fixed tariff, this means the gas price will remain the same throughout the contract, or opt for a flexible term so you pay for the gas at times to suit you – usually when prices are low. It may also be possible to lock into low gas prices by signing up for a deal that lasts for more than one year – a great proposition if you believe that business gas prices will increase in the short term or you simply want to better plan for your cash flow. For more help and information about finding out whether it is your business gas supplier is the cheapest and to find a better deal, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Can You Save With Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
While it may not be at the top of every business owner’s to-do list, it is possible to save with half hourly electricity prices. For those firms with a high energy demand, they have probably been moved to half hourly meters which enables a supplier to take more accurate readings of their energy use. They do this because the meter will send usage data every 30 minutes so there’s no longer a need for estimated bills. All bills will be accurate. However, it is also possible to utilise the information of your energy use which is being sent to a supplier by using specialist software to see where savings can be made but this information is really of more use to a potential new electricity supplier. Half hourly electricity suppliers That’s because all half hourly electricity suppliers can look at the data provided by a firm’s meters to see where the peak periods of usage are and tailor their offering to meet this need. It’s important that all firms check every year that they are not paying more than they need to for their electricity needs and the best prompt for doing this is when your current provider gets in touch with your next year’s details. Another important reason why all firms should shop around for new half hourly electricity providers every year is to help stimulate competition in the marketplace for providers to attract you as a new business. This will benefit all firms from HH meters as a result. Switch to half hourly electricity meters There’s no doubt that the switch to half hourly electricity meters has had an impact on the market and help drive down costs. This means that firms and organisations can boost profitability and they could save even more by switching to cheaper tariffs. If you are unsure whether your firm has been moved across to a half hourly meter then you need to look at your recent energy bill and notice whether the ‘S number’, which is in a small box, reads 00 which will indicate you are on a half-hour meter. Your bill also has the vital information needed for switching to a new business electricity provider so everything is to hand when a potential new supplier needs answers to their questions; it helps too that the half hourly meter is also used to tell a supplier the exact address of your firm for supply. If you would like to know more about how to save with a half hourly electricity prices, then you need to speak with the expert team at D-Energi.

How to Get A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
The process to get a cheaper business electricity supplier is not only straightforward but it’s also a simple one as well. The government is encouraging more firms to switch electricity suppliers on a regular basis which will help lower prices and also stimulate competition in the marketplace as suppliers compete to offer the very best prices. Unfortunately, a government survey has revealed that 40% of firms and organisations in the UK haven’t bothered to switch their electricity supplier so they are likely to be paying more than they should be doing for their electricity needs. Indeed, this comparison exercise between business electricity suppliers should be carried out every year to ensure your firm is not overpaying on its energy bills. And considering it can only take a few minutes to carry out, the potential returns make this a financially attractive undertaking. Find cheaper business electricity rates The process to find cheaper business electricity rates could see a firm contacting providers directly or using one of the online comparison sites. The first course of action may be time-consuming and there may be better deals out there, particularly if your search is restricted to the ‘big six’ energy providers because they may offer similar deals. The second course of action also has issues as the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace so there may be better providers available with lower tariffs and you’ll still need to speak with the provider recommended by the site. That is because all electricity providers need to offer a bespoke deal to ensure it meets the needs of the business or organisation. Finding cheaper and better business electricity prices It’s this element of finding cheaper and better business electricity prices that makes comparing quotes on a like-for-like basis difficult. Despite this, there is a potential for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds every year with larger firms potentially saving several thousands of pounds to make this an exercise worth undertaking. And let’s not forget that most business owners simply don’t have a lot of time to spare when it comes to comparing business energy quotes because they can spend the time doing something more effective within the business. However, with just one phone call to the team of experts at D-Energi, it is possible to find out how you can get a cheaper business electricity supplier and save money on your overheads.
