How to Review Your Business Energy Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
You may have spent time contacting various energy providers or have used an energy comparison site, and now it’s time to review your business energy quote. But there might still be a niggle that there could be a better deal available – perhaps one with incentives that you are unaware of. There’s no doubt that most busy business owners will not enjoy having to source and then compare energy quotes for meeting their needs, but there are easy ways to deal with this process and enjoy the best energy deal. This process of reviewing is important – whether your energy costs are a big overhead or not – because knowing how to compare energy prices effectively means you will deliver the savings you are expecting. Sourcing a business electricity quote using a comparison site Basically, when it comes to sourcing a business electricity quote using a comparison site, which is a popular route for many firms, there are some downsides to this. Firstly, you may not be aware of how many potential electricity providers are being approached to quote, so it’s always worth checking beforehand. This means it’s unlikely that the electricity comparison site is checking the entire marketplace and instead will have a restricted number of providers who will quote for your business. This also makes it difficult finding those suppliers offering incentives such as a dedicated account manager to help you run your electricity account or even an energy consultancy. Having an energy consultant look at how your firm uses electricity and gas is a great idea for two reasons: You will get to reduce consumption levels and enjoy bigger savings By reducing consumption, you will boost your environmental credentials.   Firms wanting a cheaper business gas quote The same tactics also apply to those firms wanting a cheaper business gas quote and you may be intimidated by the time it takes to contact potential suppliers directly. It’s likely there are better deals available elsewhere and if you use a business gas comparison site, there are still the same issues with the number of providers being asked to quote. Instead, you should spend a few minutes speaking with the D-Energi team and have them search the entire business gas and electricity supply market on your behalf to find a deal that meets your needs and reduces costs. They can also find suppliers offering the other incentives and perks to attract you as a customer. For more help and information about how you can review your business energy quote to ensure it’s the cheapest possible, then you need to speak with the D-Energi team as soon as possible.

How to Find A Better Business Gas Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
When you need to find a better business gas supplier it is important to appreciate that the market is competitive and there are lots of suppliers to choose from. In addition, the main aim of any exercise to switch gas suppliers is to find a tariff that will make your bills as cheap as possible. However, business gas providers offer various services and perks, so it’s always worth looking at what they might have to offer you other than the cheaper price. And there’s no doubt that this can be a daunting undertaking to switch your business energy provider but it doesn’t have to be difficult, particularly if you use the expertise of the D-Energi team. Enjoying cheap business gas rates The first issue to appreciate about enjoying cheap business gas rates is that if you haven’t switched previously or if you’re on a standard tariff, then it’s likely you are paying more than you have to. The best time to check the market for cheap deals is when your current provider gets in touch to tell you of your next contract details. You can then search the market of suppliers and choose the tariff that will best meet your firm’s needs and switch to that supplier. However, the process of finding a new provider can be as complicated as you want it to be, since contacting suppliers separately can be confusing and you may find if you restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’, that is the well-known suppliers, then their deals may be similar. There are also issues using a business gas comparison website because there may be a restricted number of suppliers they approach and you will still need to negotiate directly with that provider. Find a great business gas tariff Instead, to find a great business gas tariff that reduces your bills and offers other perks and services, you really should speak with D-Energi. That’s because, unlike a gas comparison site, they will search the entire market on your behalf and also seek out those providers offering other incentives. Among these may be an energy consultancy to help reduce consumption levels so your savings are even greater or you may request a dedicated account manager to deal with any potential issues. You should also be reassured that the switching process is similar to that for our homes and it’s a smooth and uncomplicated process with no loss of supply. For more help and information to find a better business gas supplier and reduce your firm’s overheads and to boost profitability, you should speak with the D-Energi team today.

by Simon Thompson
 
As a busy business owner who is looking for great advice on how you can save on business electricity costs, then it’s time to speak with the experts who can deliver the savings. This will mean spending a few minutes speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who have years of experience in helping firms just like yours reduce their energy overheads. The big difference between their offering, and the likes of a business energy comparison website, for example, is that they are able to search the entire market for you to ensure that the best deal possible is the one that you will sign up to. That isn’t quite the case should you use restrict your search for a new provider to a comparison website since these may only be searching a handful of potential suppliers, so you should check beforehand how many will be approached with your details. Effectively compare business electricity per kWh Once you begin this process, you need to effectively compare business electricity per kWh (kilowatt hour), though it’s worth highlighting that sourcing a cheaper unit rate, that is the amount paid for the energy you consume, is not the only cheap rate you need. Essentially, there are two costs that you need to appreciate when switching to a new provider and they are: The unit rate per kWh can be cheaper with a new supplier The standing charge is also an amount levied but this varies hugely between suppliers and it also needs to be lower than you are currently paying. The aim is to have a lower unit charge and potentially a cheaper standing charge, so you enjoy real savings because simply choosing a tariff with a lower unit rate without realising that the standing charge is higher may not actually deliver any savings for your business. Compare business energy per kWh This process to compare business energy per kWh is easy when the friendly team at D-Energi do this for you. It’s also more complicated when you use a comparison site because you have to negotiate with that recommended provider and look closely at the deal that is being offered. Alternatively, you could contact providers directly but comparing their deals on a like-for-like basis can be confusing and since they are a bespoke offering. For most busy business owners, this process to save money on business electricity can be a distraction but you can achieve realistic savings by spending a few minutes speaking with D-Energi so call them today to find out what they can do for you.
