Slash Your Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
If your firm or organisation is a large consumer of electricity, then who would not want to slash their half hourly electricity prices? And since the savings can be particularly impressive, it’s something that every business should strive to do. However, finding a new half hourly electricity supply deal at lower rates can be confusing and you will need to undertake a thorough procurement process to ensure you get the deal that meets your needs. In addition, the contracts tend to be more complex and complicated than those for small and medium-sized businesses, so you’ll need to take advice from those who understand how the market works to see that the contract is suitable. For many firms, this will mean speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who have years of experience and experts to help you in this procurement process. Switch between half hourly electricity suppliers The process itself will ensure that the switch between half hourly electricity suppliers is a seamless one and there will be no loss of energy when you begin the process. All that will change is that your bill will come from your new supplier. For large users of electricity, it’s important that you check the electricity suppliers market every year to ensure that you are not paying more than is necessary for your energy use. By doing so, you will be taking big steps to ensure that you are not overpaying and boosting profitability at the same time. Half hourly electricity meters For those large electricity consumers who may not know whether they have half hourly electricity meters, then you can check the meter itself and it will have the supply number beginning with ‘00’. It’s likely that your supplier will have installed this meter because you are a large consumer of electricity and the meter itself will ensure that your usage is recorded every 30 minutes. This data is sent to your supplier every half-hour, which means there’s no need for estimated bills. However, one of the big benefits of having a half hour meter fitted is that the data can be used by you to reduce consumption and by a potential supplier who can analyse the information to deliver a bespoke deal. While the opportunity to slash half hourly electricity prices will be restricted to large consumers, it will be time well spent speaking with the experts at D-Energi to ensure you are accessing the best possible deal when it comes to renewing your electricity supply contract.

The Business Energy Quote Process

by Simon Thompson
 
For those business owners who are looking to reduce their energy overheads will mean understanding the business energy quote process to ensure their new deal will save money. The first step is to understand business gas prices because there are various costs that will have an influence on the overall bill. For a busy business owner, it may be difficult to understand what these costs are and why you are being charged them. However, to help focus your attention, there are just two costs that need to be calculated properly. They are: The unit cost: This is the price that you will be paying for each unit of gas and this is measured in kWh (kilowatt hours). The standing charge: This is an amount charged every day for supplying energy to your premises and will vary between suppliers. Also, this amount will be charged whether you use gas or electricity on any given day.   Enjoying a cheaper business electricity quote The secret to enjoying a cheaper business electricity quote is to find a supplier offering lower unit costs and standing charges than you currently pay. While that sounds straightforward, not every business owner will take the time to calculate over the course of the year what a potential new deal will cost them. The other issue is that a small firm may believe it’s not worth shopping around to find a cheaper business or gas quote, but the savings will make this worthwhile. The new supplier will want to know how much energy your firm consumes, where you are located and how many employees you have. They will also need to know if you have plans to expand or they may offer a dedicated account manager to boost customer service levels. Access a cheaper business gas quote Unfortunately, some of these factors to access a cheaper business gas quote may appear to be surprising. For example, the geographic location means that suppliers are charging different amounts for delivering gas and electricity to firms around the country. You may even find that the industry you work in also affects the amount you pay, so there’s little point in comparing your gas bill to the firm next door if they aren’t in the same industry with a similar number of employees. If you would like more help and information about understanding the business energy quote process and to find a cheaper supplier, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi today.

Source Cheaper Business Gas Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
For most firms and organisations, gas is an important part of their daily operations and it’s always a good idea to source cheaper business gas deals when your current contract comes to an end. Indeed, when your supplier tells you what your next year’s gas rates will be, then this is the prompt to see what other business gas suppliers may offer. It’s also worth appreciating that should you not search the marketplace, for example, you may be too busy, then you run the risk that your current supplier will move you across to a ‘deemed’ rate contract, which tend to have higher prices. And unless you are a very small business, you will be locked into these higher prices for another year unless you decide to buy your way out of the contract. For those business owners who may not have the time to search the market, then you could utilise the expertise of the D-Energi team to do this on your behalf. Find a new business gas supplier Not only will the exercise to find a new business gas supplier take just a few minutes, but you will be reassured that this search will scour the entire market for a potential new provider. The alternative to using D-Energi is to use one of the many business gas supply comparison websites that are available to find a better and cheaper deal. While this is a quick way to find the market rate for your gas supply, the website itself may not be searching the entire market so it is likely there are better and cheaper deals available that will not be brought to your attention. Also, you may decide to contact potential suppliers directly and this may mean focusing attention on the ‘Big Six’ since these are household names but this is a time-consuming and confusing process. One of the issues is that the supplier must offer a bespoke deal and you need to compare the offerings between providers to ensure that their deal is the best one for you and your business. Understanding business gas rates Should you opt to use a comparison site or contact suppliers directly, it will also mean understanding how business gas rates are put together. There is a range of factors affecting these rates, including your firm’s geographic location, how many premises you may have and also how many people you employ. A potential supplier will also need to know whether you have plans for expansion or even to move premises. If you would like to know how to source cheaper business gas deals to boost your firm’s profitability, then you need to contact the D-Energi team today.

Move Business Electricity Supplier to Save

by Simon Thompson
 
If your firm wants to reduce overheads, then you should move your business electricity supplier to save money on your electricity energy bills. The process is straightforward when you want to switch between providers and the experts at D-Energi can help you do this. They can also search the entire market to find an electricity deal that will best meet your needs, so you will reduce overheads and boost profits. Alternatively, if you want to move your business electricity supply you could contact providers directly but this can be time-consuming and it could also be a confusing process comparing the deals between each supplier. Compare business electricity rates between providers Another way to compare business electricity rates between providers is to use a comparison website designed for this purpose. While the sites are undoubtedly easy to use and will quickly deliver a market rate for your firm’s size and location, they will probably be only asking a select few suppliers to quote for meeting your needs. This means there are lots of other potential suppliers who will not be approached to offer a bespoke deal since the business electricity supply market in the UK is a competitive one and there are potentially much cheaper tariffs available. For those business owners who would prefer to stick with the ‘Big Six’ suppliers, you’ll need to appreciate that the sector is still regulated by Ofgem so business electricity providers are being monitored and will meet their bespoke deal promises. Search for cheaper business electricity tariffs The search for cheaper business electricity tariffs is made easier when you contact D-Energi since the experts can source a new supplier from the entire market and have a bespoke deal that reduces costs and meets your business needs. The friendly team can also help explain the factors that will affect the range of prices being quoted, which may come as a surprise to some business owners. Essentially, a potential electricity provider will tailor their offering depending on where you are in the country, the size of your business and how many employees you have. They may also need to know whether you have plans for expansion over the coming year and whether you would like to sign up for a longer deal which may deliver even cheaper prices. If you are wanting to move a business electricity supplier to save on your overheads, then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team who can explain how the process works and help you find a cheaper and better tariff.
