Turn On to Cheap Business Gas

by Simon Thompson
 
While the gas bill for many firms will be relatively low when compared to that for electricity, it’s still worthwhile turning on to a cheap business gas deal. Not only will you reduce overheads to boost profitability, but there’s also an opportunity to enjoy better levels of customer service and find a supplier that reflects the ethos of your business. Growing numbers of firms are switching to green energy providers to reflect their company’s ethos and you could consider this possibility when you switch business gas suppliers. It helps that the switchover process is seamless and finding a new supplier takes very little effort, particularly when you use the expert team at D-Energi. Finding a cheap business energy deal However, finding a cheap business energy deal can be a tricky process and also a time-consuming one if you decide to do this yourself. The obvious route is to use an online comparison site which will compare the offers between business gas providers to find a deal that suits you. You will need to compare the gas prices per kilowatt hour (kWh) between the suppliers and also their standing charge. One of the downsides for what appears to be a quick process is that the comparison site is probably not comparing the entire marketplace to find the very best deal that will meet your needs. Plus you will still need to negotiate directly with a recommended supplier because you must sign up to a bespoke deal. Source a cheap business electricity offering And while we can’t sign up for a dual fuel deal for a business, you can source a cheap business electricity offering from the same provider as that for your gas. The process to find a new electricity deal is the same as that for gas and you could use a comparison site or contact electricity providers directly to find out what they will offer. This means trying to compare deals on a like-for-like basis which can be confusing and you’ll need to appreciate the difference between the unit price and the standing charge, which is the amount levied for delivering electricity and gas to your premises, so you can negotiate a cheaper deal. The easiest and quickest way to turn on to cheap business gas and electricity deals is to spend a few minutes speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi to find out what they can offer by searching the entire market and then taking care of the switching process.

by Simon Thompson

The main reason is that you will reduce your annual energy bill and, depending on the size of your business, you could save thousands of pounds every year. That is an immediate boost to the bottom line and you will be sourcing cheaper energy providers for the coming year, or perhaps for two or more years for even cheaper prices. Having smart meters installed when you switch energy providers There’s also a lot to recommend having smart meters installed when you switch energy providers as this will help you monitor your daily use of energy and what your potential bills might be. The meters send information about your energy use to the supplier so there are no more estimated bills. However, if you already have a smart meter installed it is probably wise mentioning this to see whether it will work with the new supplier because one national newspaper has reported that around half of smart meters stopped working when a firm switched energy suppliers. Having energy meters installed also means that a business and its employees can help reduce their use of energy to boost their environmental credentials as well as reducing their bills even further. This issue over smart meters is one that many firms may be confused about and the friendly team at D-Energi will be able to explain and of the benefits that come when they are installed. Search for a new energy solution provider When you begin the search for a new energy solution provider, it’s mainly to reduce overheads and enjoy cheaper bills but it’s also an opportunity to help other firms as well. Essentially, when you scour the market to find a cheaper energy provider you are helping to increase competition in the market which will benefit all firms when they look for a new energy solution. When it comes to undertaking an energy switch, you could reduce bills with lower rates and the use of a smart meter and you could also access an energy consultancy to help. A consultant will look at how and when you are using energy and make recommendations to reduce less of it so your savings could be even greater.

You could opt for a flexible tariff so when prices fall, so will your bills. If you have high usage, you could switch to lower rates under a flexible deal to enjoy savings.
