Switching Business Energy Suppliers to Save Cash

by Simon Thompson
 
Switching business energy suppliers in a bid to save cash is a straightforward and easy task that every firm should undertake on a regular basis. Unfortunately, not all of them do which means they may be paying more than they need to for their energy needs and no firm or organisation will want to do that when they can control their overheads effectively. Just to highlight the problem, a government survey has revealed that around 40% of all firms have never switched their business energy supplier so they are probably paying far more than they need to for their energy supply. The issue here is that their current supplier may have rolled them automatically onto a new contract, it’s known as a ‘deemed’ contract, which may mean they are paying higher rates for their energy than a new customer would be doing. Business electricity suppliers The solution for this is to act when your energy supplier gets in touch when a contract is due for renewal to tell you what your new charges are going to be and this is the case for both business electricity suppliers and gas suppliers. In both instances, firms can use an online comparison website to find a cheaper business gas and electricity supplier by filling in a few details and seeing what the market has to offer. The upside for using one of these websites is that it will reveal what the current market rate for your business as though you will still need to speak with a potential supplier directly so they can offer a bespoke deal. One of the downsides is that the online comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace so it’s possible that there might be a better and cheaper business energy supplier available who may have an offer that best meets your needs. It’s also important to appreciate that the switchover process between suppliers is a seamless one and there’s no loss of supply to your premises when this is undertaken. Business gas suppliers Another issue for firms looking to switch business energy suppliers is that while there are business gas suppliers and electricity providers available it’s not possible to get a ‘dual fuel’ deal as we can do for our homes. It is possible however to have gas and electricity provided by the same provider and the reason why they can’t offer a dual fuel deal is that they need to offer a bespoke offer that meets your firm’s own needs. This means negotiating with a potential supplier to see what they can offer and some may offer other extras, particularly smaller and new suppliers to the business energy supply market. These may include a business energy consultancy that will help your firm use less energy and so enjoy even lower bills as a result. This will boost profitability and help our environment.   Essentially, the quickest and most effective way to learn more about switching business energy suppliers to save cash is to speak with the D-Energi team who have access to all of the latest deals and offers.

Find the Cheapest Business Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
If you’re looking to find the cheapest business electricity prices, then it makes sense to search online for a new electricity supplier. However, while there are lots of comparison websites available there are a number of issues to consider before signing up with a potential energy supplier. The first one is the question of whether the online comparison site is searching the entire marketplace so there may be better deals out there that you will be unaware of. Also, while the comparison site will flag up what the market rate for your potential business is, you will still need to speak with a supplier directly to get a bespoke quote. Search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK You could also contact suppliers directly in your search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK and while this is a time-consuming process, it will probably save a substantial amount on your current electricity bills. Also, it’s important to understand the difference between unit costs and daily charges because these are the two elements of any electricity bill. For information, a daily charge is an amount levied by the supplier for them to deliver electricity to your premises and for them to maintain the National Grid. The price per unit is usually expressed in kWh (kilowatt hours) and this, as with the standing charge, will vary between suppliers and sometimes substantially so. However, it’s important to calculate with any new bill what your potential annual outgoings will be because a supplier may offer a low average unit cost but a more expensive daily charge so they aren’t as cheap as they first appear. Search for the cheapest business electricity supplier The search for the cheapest business electricity supplier can be a time-consuming process but it can be a rewarding one if you reduce a substantial amount of your overheads as a result. This is often easier said than done and many firms are put off at the prospect of switching electricity supplier; the government has calculated that around 40% of firms have never switched supplier so they are probably paying more than they need to for their electricity supply. Indeed, if this last point includes you and your business then you need to appreciate that you have probably been rolled over onto a new contract automatically, it’s known as a ‘deemed contract’, where the prices are substantially more than a new customer would enjoy.   There’s no need to be paying more for your electricity than you should be doing and with huge savings to be made it’s worth finding the cheapest business electricity prices for your firm and easiest way of doing this is to contact that the D-Energi team who will, in just a few minutes, supply you with an impressive quote.

How To Compare Business Gas Prices Per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
In an effort to reduce overheads, firms and organisations may be looking to reduce their business energy bills and so they may want to compare business gas prices per kWh between potential new suppliers. This is an effective way of finding out which potential supplier is offering the best deal but there are two charges to any quote and one is the cost per unit, which is expressed as kilowatt hours, and there’s also a standing charge. Both of these will be quoted in pence so carrying out a comparison is an effective way to see which deal will best meet your needs. Compare business electricity prices per kWh The same exercise can be done for electricity so you will need to compare business electricity prices per kWh as well. However, while this strategy will highlight what the potential supplier is offering, it is not always the best way to compare business energy costs between suppliers effectively. That’s because you will need to understand how much the standing charge is and remember to add that into your calculations when looking at the unit charge. The standing charge is for the supplier delivering energy to your premises and maintaining the National Grid. The second charge, the per kilowatt hour tariff, is a set rate and will be tailored to the amount of energy that your business is using. Looking at business electricity prices per kWh As an example, when looking at business electricity prices per kWh, the lowest charge may not necessarily be the best deal for your business. You may need to look at the supplier’s other offerings including whether they offer account management and energy advice so your business will use less gas and electricity. The upshot for using a consultancy like this is that you will lower your energy use and pay even less on your business energy bills as a result. This is a big bonus for firms looking at long-term ways to reduce their bills and energy usage levels. Indeed, there’s a lot to recommend that every firm and organisation looks at their utility bill costs every year and then look to see if there are any other better and cheaper offerings available. The switchover process, should you find a cheaper utility supplier, is straightforward and there will be no loss of supply to your premises.   While it’s easy to compare business gas prices per kWh, as it is for electricity, there are other issues to consider including the customer service and consultancy offering and the D-Energi team can help explain why the extra services may well be the offering to choose.
