How to Source A Cheap Commercial Gas Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking to source a cheap commercial gas quote for your business then you have to put some effort into finding the cheapest UK rates. While you could speak with the team of experts at D-Energi, there are other ways to source cheaper gas quotes for your everyday needs. However, unlike sourcing a gas provider for our homes, business plans tend to be more complicated and there are other issues affecting the quote a provider may give you. These will include your energy usage levels as well as your location. It’s also important to appreciate that if you haven’t switched commercial gas suppliers in recent years then you may be on deemed rates which tend to be much higher prices. Compare business gas prices between providers The first step is to compare business gas prices between providers to get a good idea of what the current market rate is for your location and needs. You could visit supplier websites and then speak with a representative to get a bespoke quote. This can be a time-consuming process and you will probably be missing out on better and cheaper commercial gas providers. An easy way to source a market rate for your needs is to use an online comparison site which will search for the best rates and then recommend a provider. While using these sites offer a way to meet your needs, you need to be aware that the website may not be searching the entire marketplace and you’ll still need to speak with a supplier so they can tailor their offering for you. It helps that the team at D-Energi will search the entire marketplace to find the latest best deals and offers. Search for the cheapest gas tariff There are also other considerations in the search for the cheapest gas tariff for your business needs which may include how long you will sign a contract for. While most providers will offer a contract of one year and secure the price, it is possible to access lower tariffs if you sign up for two or three years. Some providers offer five-year contracts. There are big savings to be made when signing up for a long-term deal but you still need to be wary and check the small print very carefully and you will also need to be confident that gas prices will rise and not fall during the duration of the contract.   If you would like more help and advice about how you can source a cheap commercial gas quote for your business needs then contact the experts at D-Energi.

What An Energy Consultancy Can Do for Your Business

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are interested in what an energy consultancy can do for your business, then this article will help. It’s important to appreciate that a consultancy will help lower your energy usage levels so that any savings provided by the new provider will be enhanced. These savings will be aimed at delivering cost reductions over the long-term. There’s a lot to recommend undertaking a regular energy consultancy to ensure your firm is not spending more than it needs to on energy bills and you are helping the environment at the same time. In addition, a consultancy will also help you secure the energy offer that will best meet your needs whether you’re looking for a standard gas or electric contract or whether you want your energy to come from a renewable source. The consultancy can resolve these issues. Energy services provided by a new supplier The energy services provided by a new supplier may also see an expert sorting out your energy and also your water tariffs to ensure you are on the right tariffs for your needs. However, the option of lowering your business water bills is only currently available to those firms and organisations in Scotland and England while for firms in Wales and Northern Ireland the market there is still regulated. These energy experts will examine previous energy bills, which can be complex and confusing, to ensure that you have been on the right deal previously. The energy consultation will also ensure that your firm complies with the various energy legislation and regulation demands so that you are not caught unawares with non-compliance. Benchmark your firms use of energy and water The energy consultants will also be able to benchmark your firm’s use of energy and water against another business of a similar size. One reason for doing this is to highlight that the energy and water efficiencies being proposed are not only realistic but have been enjoyed by your competitors. With all energy and water audits, the aim is not to just reduce overheads but also eliminate waste and lower consumption which will bring long-term gains to boost profitability. This should be an annual exercise for every firm but a government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never tried to switch energy providers and are likely to be paying higher bills as a result – the exercise can be done in just a few minutes if you use a comparison site or contact experts who understand how the market works.   If you want to know what an energy consultancy can do for your business and why you should regularly undergo an energy and water audit, then let the experts at D-Energi explain more.
