Helpful Advice to Switch Commercial Energy Providers

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for cheaper electricity and gas prices for your business then this article will offer helpful advice for you to switch commercial energy providers and enjoy lower bills as a result. Firstly, you need details of your business and these can be found on your most recent bill. The bill will also have your meter number which tells a potential supplier of your exact location. It’s important to appreciate that there is no set rate for commercial energy and a lot depends on your location, the industry you work in and your peak periods of demand to dictate what prices you will be paying. It’s also important to appreciate that you will probably find a much cheaper energy supplier because the marketplace is competitive for new business and you should shop around to find a range of quotes from various providers. Or you could simply contact the D-Energi team to take care of this process and undertake the switchover on your behalf. Search for cheaper commercial energy prices There is no doubt that running a business takes dedication and time and the search for cheaper business energy prices may appear to be a distraction but the savings will make this a financially rewarding exercise. To find these cheaper prices you could contact energy suppliers directly and negotiate with them once your current provider contacts you with details of what your next year’s tariff will be. If you are short of time then this can be a time-consuming process but you could also use a comparison website though these may not be searching the entire marketplace and you’ll still need to contact the recommended supplier directly and give them your details. It’s also worth bearing in mind that a recent government survey highlighted that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching their provider so they have, more than likely, been rolled over onto a deemed contract that tends to be more costly. Finding a cheap commercial energy quote It’s this task of finding a cheap business energy quote that may appear to be a daunting prospect for some firms and you should not restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ providers and also incorporate some of the newer, smaller electricity suppliers who are now available. While the commercial energy supply market has been deregulated in the UK, there is still a watchdog in the shape Ofgem to monitor how the market operates and ensure that the supplier delivers on their promises. There may also be some hesitation from a business owner worried that during the switchover they may lose their energy supply to their premises but this will not happen. If you would like to know more about how you can switch commercial energy providers and save a substantial amount of money on your overheads, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Should You Compare Business Electricity and Gas Providers?

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to lowering overheads, all firms and organisation should take steps to compare business electricity and gas providers. But when are the optimum times for undertaking this exercise? The best incentive for doing so is when your current electricity or gas supplier contacts you with details of your next year’s contract rates. You can then use this information to shop around for a potential new supplier though it’s always worthwhile not restricting your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers since their offerings may be similar and you may believe that it’s simply not worthwhile switching. Compare business energy providers That would be a mistake because you should make the effort to compare business energy providers of varying sizes and look at their offers. Essentially, switching to a new energy provider isn’t simply about reducing the tariff or unit rates but for the potential of enjoying other services such as a consultancy. This will make sound business sense because a consultant will look at how and when your firm is using its energy and then make recommendations about how you can use less. Not only will you enjoy longer-term savings by reducing your energy, your firm will also be doing its bit for the environment. That’s a big incentive for many firms. Shop around and compare business gas providers While most firms and organisations will be needing electricity to carry out their activities every day, there’s also a need to shop around and compare business gas providers and you can compare these easily as well. While you could contact gas providers directly, this can be a time-consuming undertaking particularly if you have more than one premises because you’ll need to give details of each of these so a bespoke offer can be made. Alternatively, you could use a comparison website which makes this process easier but the site itself may not be searching the entire marketplace and you will still need to speak with a potential new provider and give them your details. The reason for this is that a supplier must offer a bespoke deal – it’s the reason why comparing rates is so difficult on a like-for-like basis. If you would like to compare business electricity and gas providers to find out which suppliers have the best terms that meet your needs, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi who can help.

How to Get the Best Business Energy Quote For You

by Simon Thompson
 
With a government survey revealing that around 40% of firms have never switched energy supplier, it’s important that you get the best business energy quote for you. You can do this by contacting the friendly D-Energi team who can search the entire marketplace to find a bespoke offer that will meet your needs and potentially save a substantial amount on your energy overheads. This process only takes a few minutes but you could contact potential business energy suppliers directly to find how much they may quote you. Or you could use an online comparison site to get a good idea of the market rate for your firm’s size and location and then use this information to negotiate a better deal with your current supplier or use it to find a new provider. Find a cheaper business electricity quote It’s also important that firms carry out this exercise every year to find a cheaper business electricity quote for their needs because this will help stimulate competition in the marketplace so all firms and organisations will get to enjoy lower prices as a result. As mentioned earlier, with 40% of firms never switching means they are probably paying more than they should be doing for their energy needs because their provider has probably automatically rolled them onto ‘deemed’ rates which tend to be pricier. This is unfortunate since switching to a cheaper business energy provider can be done in just a few minutes and the switchover process between suppliers is seamless and there’s no need to worry about losing your energy supply when this is undertaken. Indeed, the market may have been deregulated but it is still closely monitored by the energy watchdog Ofgem to bring peace of mind to those switching. Finding a better business gas quote This notion of finding a cheaper business electricity quote also extends to finding a better business gas quote for your firm’s needs. Whereas just about every firm will be needing electricity to carry out their everyday work, it’s still possible to find a cheaper business energy quote to help meet your gas needs. Again, there are lots of firms available who will help you reduce your gas overheads and switching to a new provider is trouble-free. As with electricity, you could use an online comparison site to find a cheaper provider but you will still need to speak with the gas firm directly to obtain a bespoke quote that meets your needs. You also need to be aware that the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace and there may be cheaper, better deals available.   If you want to know whether you can save on your gas and electricity overheads and need to find the best business energy quote for your needs, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How to Source Lower Business Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
For all firms and organisations wanting to know how they can source lower business energy prices then this article will help point you in the right direction. However, it’s important to appreciate that the team of experts at D-Energi, with just a few details and in a few minutes, can find cheaper business energy prices than you currently enjoy. Or, you could contact business energy providers directly and negotiate with them in a bid to find lower bills but this can be a time-consuming undertaking and there’s no guarantee you will find a cheaper provider. Indeed, one government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never switched business energy suppliers so they are likely to be paying more than is necessary on energy bills; by spending just a few minutes you could make substantial savings on your overheads. Search for a new business energy supplier This search for a new business energy supplier can be as complicated as you want to make it and you could use an online comparison site to find a new supplier. These sites will help provide an insight into what the current market rates at for your firm’s supply of business energy will be though there are issues around your location, the industry you are in and how much energy you use. Larger energy uses can negotiate better terms. However, these comparison sites may not search all of the potential business energy suppliers so you could be missing out on better and cheaper deals. You will also need to contact the business energy supplier highlighted by the comparison site and negotiate directly with them because they must offer you a bespoke deal that will meet your needs. If you are looking for gas and electricity providers separately, then you’ll need to speak to them separately as well. Switching to a new business energy provider Switching to a new business energy provider is a straightforward process and there’s no loss of supply when you begin this undertaking. The market is still monitored by Ofgem to ensure that deals are honoured and supply is uninterrupted. This process to find a new business energy supplier will take just a few minutes and should be done every year by all firms and organisations to help create competition between providers which will help deliver lower prices. For those firms who may be wary about using smaller business energy providers, they need to appreciate that if they restrict their search of the marketplace to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers then there may not be substantial savings to be made because they may have similar prices. That would be a shame because a smaller energy firm may offer other add-ons including a consultancy to help deliver big savings on how much energy you are using because they will help you use less of it. This, in turn, will deliver big savings over the long-term. If you want to know more about how you can source lower business energy prices and speak to a team of experts who understand how the market works, then contact D-Energi today.
