How to Compare Business Energy Per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
The energy costs for your business or organisation is made up with unit rates which is the price you pay for each unit of energy so you will need to compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt hour) deals between providers. Also, you will need to take into account the standing charge, which is an amount that goes towards paying for supplying electricity and gas to your premises – usually calculated on a daily basis. However, comparing business electricity and gas tariffs per kilowatt hour can be complicated because you will be looking at separate quotes from providers for these utilities. This will then make it more difficult working out which is the best value deal for your firm’s needs but looking at the price per kilowatt-hour makes this job easier. Best cheap business gas and electric supplier Finding the best cheap business gas and electric supplier will mean selecting the right tariff from a supplier’s offerings and knowing how much energy you use during the year means that calculating average prices per kWh will give you a good idea of what the new deal will cost. However, the unit price per kilowatt hour will vary depending on your geographic location and the industry you are in and also how many employees you have now – and plan to have in the future. Also, the size of your business will have an impact with micro-businesses paying slightly more than a small business who will pay slightly more than a medium business will do. Cheap business gas supplier Finding a cheap business gas supplier, and also for electricity, also means appreciating the standing charges they have which do vary between suppliers and sometimes these differences can be huge. For example, a potential new supplier may offer an impressive price per kilowatt hour but have a much higher standing charge to make up for this. Effectively, your firm will not be making any real savings and switching to a new provider may end up costing you more. In addition, most business owners are very busy with their day-to-day responsibilities so finding the time to source a new energy supplier will not be easy. The best way for a business owner to compare business energy per kilowatt hour deals between providers is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can do this on your behalf and, in a few minutes, find a cheaper, better deal than you currently enjoy.

Sourcing Great Commercial Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
Utility bills, if not kept under control, can damage a business so sourcing great commercial energy prices on a regular basis will be a sound move. The best time for checking the market is when your current supplier gets in touch to tell you what your next year’s contract rates will be. If you decide not to search for another energy supply, you may be simply too busy, then it’s likely your provider will move you onto ‘deemed’ rates which can be very high. These deemed rates are used when there’s no active contract in place for supplying energy to your business because the provider will assume that you want an uninterrupted supply of power to carry on working. This means that your energy provider will supply your premises with energy but this will be done at the higher deemed rates. Find a new commercial energy quote Considering that it only takes a few minutes to find a new commercial energy quote for your firm, this is an expensive price for inactivity. There are two types of tariff contracts for small business energy needs and they are a fixed rate tariff and a variable rate tariff. With a fixed rate, the price being paid per kilowatt hour (kWh) will be fixed for a set period of time usually, it’s for one year but contracts can be signed for two or three years and some suppliers will offer up to five years. The downside to a fixed tariff is that you may be tied into higher prices should prices fall. With a variable rate, the price you pay will vary over the fixed term contract but you will benefit when prices for energy fall. Searching for new commercial energy deals When searching for new commercial energy deals, there’s no ‘best tariff’ that you can consult because each energy provider will need to offer a bespoke deal for your own needs. This means that it’s also difficult to carry out a like-for-like comparison between providers but if your firm has moved across to deemed rates, you could save up to 50% by simply switching providers. There are comparison sites for checking what the market rate is for your needs but this site may not be searching all potential suppliers and there could be better deals available. One effective way of checking the marketplace for energy providers to supply energy to your firm is to contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will be able to help you source great commercial energy prices and save money on your overheads.

Do You Compare Business Gas Providers

by Simon Thompson
 
When your current gas supplier gets in touch with details of your next contract, do you compare business gas providers to find a cheaper, better deal? If not, then you’ll be joining around 40% of other firms in the UK who also do not carry out a comparison between suppliers to see whether they can buy their gas more cheaply. For most firms, it’s highly likely that by switching gas suppliers you will enjoy cheaper bills but unless you search the market place, how will you know? The easiest way is to contact the D-Energi team who will, on your behalf, search the entire market and find a deal that will best meet your firm’s needs. Compare business electricity suppliers This issue also extends to those firms who do not compare business electricity suppliers on a regular basis because all firms should do this every year to ensure they never pay more than they should be doing for their energy needs. While you may believe that all suppliers will be charging similar rates, it is possible to save up to 20% by simply switching business gas or electricity providers and also enjoy other benefits from a new supplier. For example, this may include the opportunity of having one bill to cover the energy supply to several premises or better levels of customer service. There’s also the tantalising prospect of having an energy consultancy which will help you and your business use less energy and enjoy even greater savings as a result. Compare business energy deals between providers The best time to compare business energy deals between providers is when your current supplier gets in touch with your next year’s contract details which effectively opens a window of opportunity that you should exploit. While searching the marketplace can be a time-consuming process, and often boring because you need to give the supplier the same details every time, it should be rewarded with lower energy costs. There are comparison sites available to make this process quicker but the sites may not search the whole of the market and there could be better and cheaper deals available. Essentially, the most effective way for your firm to compare business gas providers, as well as electricity suppliers, is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who can, in a few minutes, search the entire marketplace and find a deal that will meet your needs and potentially be much cheaper as well.
