How to Find a Cheap Business Gas Supplier Easily!

by Simon Thompson
 
If your current gas provider has been in touch with details of your next year’s contract, then you may be interested in a search for a cheaper business gas supplier instead. This is straightforward and easy to accomplish, particularly when you use the friendly team at D-Energi. That’s because they can access the entire marketplace of British commercial gas suppliers on your behalf to find a deal that will best meet your needs. The best time to start the search is when your supplier tells you of your next year’s deal and you will need to act because failing to do so may see you being moved across to dearer rates automatically. The market for business gas suppliers is a competitive one and it’s always worthwhile seeking a new supplier as this will help stimulate competition in the marketplace to benefit all firms and organisations. Seeking cheaper business gas rates The first thing to appreciate when seeking cheaper business gas rates is that there are lots of potential suppliers to choose from. The best way of finding the savings effectively is to search the market thoroughly and while firms could contact suppliers directly, this can be a time-consuming process. Alternatively, it’s also possible to use one of the popular business gas comparison websites but it’s unlikely they are searching the entire market and may instead have a select few suppliers to quote for you. Obviously, this means that there may be cheaper and better providers available that will not be approached and you’ll still need to speak directly with a supplier because they must offer you a bespoke deal. Cheaper business gas supplier The search for a cheaper business gas supplier can be done in just a few minutes when you use the D-Energi team. However, you may not just be searching for a cheaper business gas deal but may also be looking for other incentives including having a dedicated account manager, for example. Others may be interested in an energy consultancy to help your firm reduce its consumption of gas to deliver larger savings. Business gas providers in the UK have a range of deals and offers to attract you as a customer, so it’s worth shopping around to find not only the most suitable deal that saves you money but finding a provider that meets your needs. This can be achieved when you contact the D-Energi team to help you find a cheaper business gas supplier and to access other deals and incentives as well.

Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers: A Guide For Businesses

by Simon Thompson
 
If you and your business are in the hunt for cheap half hourly electricity suppliers, then this article will help. Firstly, you may not appreciate what a half-hourly meter is, but it’s a way for firms and organisations to get more accurate electricity bills – which means enjoying the best electricity prices. Indeed, larger businesses will have unique energy needs, for example, they may be using heavy equipment and using significantly more electricity for these purposes. This means that it’s important as an energy-intensive business to have accurate metering of their power usage so their consumption is sent every 30 minutes to their supplier – it is known as ‘P272’ legislation. This is done by using half-hourly electricity meters, which are also known as HH meters and also 00 meters since this is the number indicated on the front of the meter. Access cheaper half hourly electricity prices Also, having half-hour electricity meters installed means a firm can access cheaper half hourly electricity prices. These prices are not accessible to small and medium-sized firms and the data produced by the meters can be used by a potential supplier to offer a bespoke quote. One reason for this is that the meter records in real-time when and how your business is using electricity and a supplier can tailor their offering to meet this need, and also offer recommendations for reducing consumption. These recommendations may come via an energy consultancy that will help reduce consumption levels to deliver even greater savings for your firm. All big users of electricity will have these HH meters installed and if you’ve just moved into new premises, then you need to check whether you have them to access the cheaper rates. Cheap half hourly electricity deal The other consideration when accessing cheap half hourly electricity deals is to appreciate the factors that affect the prices being quoted. These deals will be different from the electricity bills we get for our homes and will vary between suppliers. Also, the procurement process for half-hour electricity is different than for other tariffs, so it’s always wise accessing the expertise of the D-Energi team who can source and explain the cheaper and better deals to you. Among the factors to consider will be the fluctuation of wholesale electricity prices, the contract terms as well as the location of your business. If you need more help and advice to source cheap half hourly electricity suppliers and reduce your overheads by a substantial amount, then you need to contact D-Energi today.

Choosing A Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to choosing a business electricity supplier, how do you know that you are getting the best deal when there are so many to choose from? The purpose of searching providers for a new deal is to reduce electricity bills, but some providers also offer perks and incentives to attract you as a customer. This may include the offer of an energy consultancy to reduce your consumption of electricity – so your bills are substantially reduced and you can boost your green credentials. This issue also means that finding the cheapest energy price means the cost may not be the main concern when finding a new provider and some organisations may prefer a better deal offering a dedicated account manager, for example. Understanding business electricity rates The question of costs also means understanding business electricity rates to ensure that you get the best deal for meeting your needs. Competitive pricing is key for finding a way to reduce overheads even though business owners will need to understand the difference between fixed and variable tariffs as well as unit rates and standing charges. To help, this is the D-Energi explanation for these: A fixed tariff sees a firm agreeing their electricity costs over the duration of the contract The variable rate tariff sees these prices vary during the contract duration The unit rate is the amount charged for your actual consumption of electricity The standing charge is the amount paid to the National Grid for delivering electricity to your premises.   It’s important to appreciate that the standing charge will vary between providers and some may offer a higher amount while offering a cheaper unit rate so there may not be any savings. Cheaper business electricity provider Its issues such as this that make the D-Energi team’s experience invaluable because when you need to find a cheaper business electricity provider, they can help. Also, switching between electricity suppliers is straightforward, but to bring peace of mind the D-Energi team can take over the paperwork to ensure this process is completed properly. The only thing that will change is that your bill will come from the new provider and there’s no loss of supply when you do decide to switch. In addition, the team will monitor the market and when your electricity supply contract is due for renewal, they will get in touch with information about cheaper and better offers and incentives that may be of interest to you and your business. For more help and advice when choosing a new business electricity supplier, you should speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Compare Business Gas Providers and Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
To access the best deals and make realistic savings on costs, all businesses should compare business gas providers and tariffs effectively. Whether you run a pub or a small tearoom, it’s worth taking the time finding a good business gas deal to ensure you do not pay more than you should be doing for your gas needs. However, if you have not switched gas supplier recently, then it’s likely you will have been rolled over onto dearer out-of-contract rates. You won’t be alone if this is the case since one government survey has revealed that around 40% of businesses have never swapped to a cheaper, better deal in recent years. Compare business energy tariffs The first step to accessing a cheap deal is to compare business energy tariffs and this can take a few moments. It certainly will do if you contact the friendly D-Energi team who will take some information such as the name of your gas supplier, the contract end date and the name of the tariff you are on. The team will also ask how much gas your firm is consuming before they search the entire market to find the best value tariff. In addition, they can also highlight those providers who have other incentives such as an energy consultancy to help you reduce your gas and electricity consumption levels. Compare business electricity providers While we talk about switching business gas suppliers, the D-Energi team can also compare business electricity providers as well. As mentioned, you could use an online comparison site for this purpose though you should check beforehand to see how many suppliers are being contacted to offer a quote. It’s unlikely to be the entire market, so there could be cheaper offers that will go unnoticed but that won’t happen if you use D-Energi. For those busy business owners who may think they do not have the time to spare finding a new business gas and electricity supplier, then it’s possible you will save a substantial amount on your current overheads. That’s a financial incentive all firms will be interested in. Plus, by simply searching the market for a new deal you will help stimulate competition which will, in turn, benefit all firms and organisations. For more information about how you can compare business gas providers and their deals, you need to contact the D-Energi team today.
