Could You Save When You Undertake An Energy Switch?

by Simon Thompson
 
The simple answer to the question of whether ‘Could you save when you undertake an energy switch?’ is most definitely ‘Yes’. That certainly is the case if your business has never switched suppliers or at least has not done so for several years. You won’t be alone in this and you may simply have been too busy running your business to undertake a comparison between providers to find a cheaper supplier to help reduce your overheads. According to the government survey, around 40% of firms in the UK haven’t switched energy providers in recent years so they are probably paying more than is necessary for their energy needs. Switch energy suppliers That’s a shame when there are big savings to be made when you switch energy suppliers; even a one-man band can save hundreds of pounds every year. This obviously means that larger concerns and those firms with more than one premises could save even more and have one bill sent to them for all of their energy usages. While you could use an online comparison site to find cheaper energy prices or contact potential suppliers directly, it’s important that you speak with experts who understand how the business energy supply market works. This will mean contacting the friendly team at D-Energi who will be able to find an offer that will meet your firm’s needs and save you money. The switchover process is also straightforward and there’s no loss of energy supply. Just to highlight, if you’ve never bothered switching energy suppliers before then you’ve probably been rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract so might be paying more than a new customer will be for your energy bills. Find levels of customer service Also, you may have had a poor experience with your current provider and are looking to find better levels of customer service with a new supplier. There are potentially big savings to be made and a lot depends on how much energy you use, where you are located and the industry you operate in. In addition, you could sign up for a long-term energy contract to enjoy bigger savings if you believe energy prices will rise and this will help those firms who want to control their cash flow for the next few years.   All firms should be encouraged to switch energy suppliers on a regular basis and if you still need convincing or if you simply want to find out what the savings could be, then contact the D-Energi team to find out more.

Why You Should Swap Business Energy Suppliers Regularly

by Simon Thompson
 
There are a number of reasons why you should swap business energy suppliers regularly and it’s not just about accessing cheaper bills. While paying less for our energy will mean we reduce overheads and boost profitability, an important reason for looking to switch every year will help boost competition in the marketplace. Sadly, a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms have never bothered to switch so they are probably paying more for their energy needs than they should be doing. By searching the marketplace when your current provider contacts you with next year’s rates means there’s more competition between providers to attract your business to sign up with them. This level of competition means that all firms will end up better off because the market is increasingly competitive. Looking for new business electricity suppliers So, if you are looking for new business electricity suppliers then you will find a competitive market and it’s important that you don’t restrict your search for new prices to those being offered by the ‘Big Six’ energy firms. That’s because they may offer similar rates while there are smaller, newer entrants with better deals and tariffs that will help your firm save substantial amounts every year. This is an offer that’s hard to ignore and a new electricity supplier may offer higher levels of customer service and other attractive features including a consultancy to help you use less electricity to make even greater savings. Although most business owners will not have switching their energy supplier at the top of their to-do list this can be a financially rewarding undertaking to make it a worthwhile exercise. Finding new business gas suppliers As with switching electricity provider, when it comes to finding new business gas suppliers the process is very similar and while our gas bills tend to be cheaper there is still an opportunity to save. Again, you should search the marketplace when your current provider gets in touch with a new contract and even small firms could save up to 25% on their current bill if they haven’t switched for a long time. If you and your business haven’t bothered switching for several years you need to be reassured that the process of doing so is seamless and there’s no loss of supply of gas or electricity to your premises.   If you would like to know more about why you should swap business energy suppliers regularly, then get in touch with the team of experts at D-Energi who will be able to explain more.

by Simon Thompson
 
When your current provider contacts you with your next year’s contract rates, you may be wondering whether you are on the cheapest business electricity prices for your needs. The landing of this contract renewal letter is a great point to begin searching the marketplace to find cheaper energy prices that will help you lower your running costs. To find cheaper rates, you could contact suppliers directly or use an online comparison site. The first method can be time-consuming and not find the best offers while the latter may not search the entire marketplace but will give a fair indication of what prices your business should be paying. Cheapest business electricity rates UK In the search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK, you should carry out a search of the marketplace every year when your contract is up for renewal to ensure you never pay more than you should for electricity. Unfortunately, a government survey has highlighted that 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching so they will have probably been rolled over onto deemed contracts which tend to be much higher than a new customer will enjoy. It doesn’t have to be this way since online comparison sites and the D-Energi team can search the marketplace to source the bespoke deal that should save a substantial amount of money on your business’s electricity bills. The cheapest business electricity supplier Finding the cheapest business electricity supplier is straightforward and the switchover process is a seamless one and there’s no loss of supply when you decide to swap. This may be a potential worry for those firms who rely on their electricity supply but they don’t have to because the market is still monitored by the watchdog Ofgem to ensure that firms deliver on promises and supply. It also needs to be highlighted that some of the smaller independent providers will offer the better prices and better levels of customer service since some firms will be reluctant to move away from one of the ‘Big Six’ providers but with the offer of substantial savings to be made this should be investigated.   If you want to find out whether you are on the cheapest business electricity prices and, if not, what the cheapest prices could be for your needs, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.

Get Lower Business Electricity Prices per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
An effective way of lowering an organisation’s overheads is to enjoy lower business electricity prices per kWh (kilowatt hour) but what does this mean? Firstly, there’s no one size fits all rate when you begin searching for a new business electricity provider. The kilowatt-hour rate being quoted will vary from business to business and also between suppliers and the location of your organisation will also influence the prices being quoted – as will your energy usage. Larger users of electricity will generally enjoy the cheaper prices. For example, if you contact one of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers then you may find that their prices are very similar – but this should not put you off scouring the market for better business electricity tariffs. All firms, even one man bands, should be able to access a cheaper deal. Always compare business electricity prices per kWh There are lots of newer and smaller suppliers offering better rates so you should always compare business electricity prices per kWh whenever your current provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract. This opportunity to compare prices could lead to big savings and you could carry out a small comparison exercise between a few suppliers and use the information to renegotiate with your current provider or accept the best deal offered. There are online business electricity comparison sites available and though these sites may not be searching the entire marketplace they will give a good idea of what the market rate is for your firm’s needs. Another issue that needs to be considered when looking at electricity prices in kilowatt-hours is that the length of contract you sign up for may have an impact with longer-term contracts tending to deliver greater savings. Understanding business gas prices per kWh  This search for cheaper business electricity rates also extends to understanding business gas prices per kWh to lower those bills as well. Essentially, gas unit prices for business tend to be much lower than for electricity but business gas suppliers also tend to have a higher standing charge. The standing charge from the energy providers is for the costs they incur supplying electricity and gas to your premises and also for helping to maintain the National Grid.   For any firm or organisation wanting cheaper business electricity prices per kWh and who needs to understand more about the process then you should speak to the experts at D-Energi.
