How to Find Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
As a large consumer of energy, if you need to find cheap half hourly electricity prices to save on costs, then this article will help. It’s imperative that you begin the search for a new energy provider several months before your contract is due for renewal. That’s because the procurement process for a half-hour electricity supply is more complicated than that for small firms. Also, you need to appreciate that by not renewing your electricity contract may lead to you paying up to 30% more for your out of contract rates. Search for half hourly electricity suppliers The search for half hourly electricity suppliers can be a complicated one, but the market is competitive and it is worth the time and effort switching to a new provider. It helps that the team at D-Energi understand how this half hourly electricity supply market works and you will find that the regulator Ofgem recommends that firms and organisations use an independent broker or third party to help negotiate a deal. The D-Energi team not only has access to the entire market of suppliers, but they can also look at the contract that is offered and help explain its benefits to you. If you are wondering whether your firm or organisation qualifies for the lower half hourly electricity rates, then you will need a half-hour meter installed. This meter will record your energy consumption every 30 minutes and send this data to the provider for up-to-date readings and there will be no more estimated bills. However, only large consumers of energy – that is those with a peak demand of 100 kW – have a mandatory need for these meters to be installed. Negotiating a new half hourly electricity contract There’s a lot to consider when negotiating a new half hourly electricity contract with a provider and it’s here where the expertise of the D-Energi team will help. You’ll need to appreciate that the half hourly contract rates on offer will vary because of wholesale market demands and the supplier may only guarantee the price for 24-hours or so. However, even a small reduction in your current unit price per kilowatt-hour could lead to massive savings overall, depending on your annual consumption levels. There’s also no need to worry about switching to a new provider, there’s no loss of supply should you decide to do so and again there is help available with the paperwork and the process. For more information about how to find half hourly electricity prices that will save you and your business money, then you need to contact the D-Energi team today.

How to Review Your Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to your firm reviewing your business energy suppliers, how do you find a provider to trust? The easiest way will be to speak with the experts at D-Energi because they have access to the entire market and can find the best deal on your behalf in just a few minutes. It’s important to highlight that all firms should review their business energy providers every year when their contract comes up for renewal. This exercise will not only ensure that you are not overpaying on your business energy needs, but you are also helping to stimulate competition in the business energy supplier market. Switching business electricity suppliers There are too many firms who believe that switching business electricity suppliers, and also for gas, is too much of a hassle but that is a potentially expensive mistake to make. Put simply, if you do not search the market for a new supplier when your current provider gets in touch with a new contract, then they may move you across to more expensive out of contract rates instead. These will be dearer than the rates being offered to new customers and one government survey highlights that around 40% of firms have not switched their electricity provider in recent years. For those firms who want to keep tight control on costs, then searching the market for a cheaper business gas and electricity provider is a great way to do this. It’s also very good business practice. Sourcing new business gas suppliers This effort to search for new providers also extends to sourcing new business gas suppliers to reduce your bills – even though most firms are spending a lot less on their gas needs. In addition to not overpaying on your gas and electricity overheads, you could also look to reducing consumption levels by opting to use a provider offering an energy consultancy for this purpose. This means that in addition to accessing lower energy rates, you will have reduced consumption levels so you enjoy greater savings. On top of this, the firm will also boost its environmental credentials to potential clients because you will have a way of proving that you have taken steps to reduce consumption levels to help our environment. If you need to review your business energy suppliers, then it’s worth the time speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi first to see what they can do for you and they can also take care of the switchover process.
