Is Your Business Energy Quote the Cheapest?

by Simon Thompson
 
While all firms and organization are encouraged to search the marketplace every year to find a cheaper business energy quote to meet their needs, how do you know that it is the cheapest? The answer is that unless you’ve searched the entire market offering then you probably don’t know, and there may be better and cheaper deals available that will not come to your attention. One reason for this is that your firm may decide to use an online comparison site to compare business energy quotes between providers, but the site itself may restrict its search to a select few suppliers. This will mean that there may be other cheaper and better offers available that you will not get to hear about and you’ll still need to speak to the recommended supplier so you can access a tailor-made quote for your business. Sourcing a cheaper business electricity quote This issue of sourcing a cheaper business electricity quote means a firm will need to take the time to understand what their needs are and find a supplier to meet them. While businesses could approach electricity suppliers directly, this can be a time-consuming process and many of the quotes may be similar, so the firm may be put off from switching because they may believe it is too much hassle doing so for very little financial gain. This would be a mistake because there are big savings to be made and with around 40% of firms never bothering to switch energy providers previously, according to a government survey, means there is a huge potential for many firms to save lots of money on their overheads. That will almost certainly be the case if they have remained with the same energy supplier for several years without bothering to switch – and their supplier may have moved them across to a ‘deemed’ contract automatically and these tend to be much more expensive than the contracts offered to a new customer. Finding a cheap business gas quote This issue over sourcing a new electricity provider also extends to finding a cheap business gas quote to meet your everyday needs. Both electricity and gas markets work in a similar fashion and once you’ve found a new provider, the switchover process will be seamless and there’s no loss of energy supply. But there is an easier way of searching the entire market and that is to speak with experts at D-Energi who have access to the latest deals and offers including from providers a firm may never have heard of previously. These suppliers may also have other offerings such as an energy consultancy. A consultancy is to be recommended because this will see an energy expert analysing how your firm is using its gas and electricity and then introducing measures for you to use less and boost your savings over the long term by even more. For more help and information about whether you have accessed the cheapest business energy quote for your needs, then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team to see whether they can beat it.

by Simon Thompson
 
If you believe you are paying over the odds for your firm’s gas and want to find cheaper business gas rates easily then this article will help. There is no reason to be paying more than you should be for your gas use but many business owners are very busy and don’t have the time to shop around individual suppliers. While they could contact a supplier directly, they may restrict their search to the ‘Big Six’ and find that their offers are fairly similar and decide it’s not worth the time and hassle to switch to a new provider. Since around 40% of firms in the UK, a government survey has revealed, have never switched their energy supplier means that many firms are probably paying more than they should be doing for their gas prices. Switching to a cheaper business gas supplier And since the savings can be substantial, it helps that switching to a cheaper business gas supplier is straightforward. Indeed, there is no loss of gas supply to your premises when this process is undertaken and the supplier may offer other attractive benefits such as a consultancy to help your firm use less gas and boost your savings even further. It’s also possible that if you believe business gas prices are going to rise in the short-term, that you can secure cheap gas prices for several years, which will help with cash flow planning. There’s no doubt that predicting future gas prices can be difficult since the prices are affected by a range of events including international conflicts and demand for gas. Accessing a cheaper business gas bill For those interested in accessing a cheaper business gas bill, then you can do so by using a comparison site for this purpose or speak to a member of the D-Energi team who will be able to search the market to find a cheaper supplier. Of those who want to use a comparison service, then you should check beforehand how many suppliers they are searching because there may be cheaper and better providers available who will not be asked to quote.

Understanding Half Hourly Electricity Prices to Save

by Simon Thompson
 
The main reason why a firm should understand half-hourly electricity prices is to save a substantial amount on their overheads. Essentially, half hourly electricity metering, or as it is sometimes known as ‘HH meters’, is used by large power users so their usage can be monitored more effectively. As the name of the meter suggests, the amount of electricity being used is read by the supplier electronically every 30 minutes and the data is recorded. Not only does this mean that your firm will be paying the correct amount for its electricity use but it also means there’s no need for estimated bills any longer. Half hourly electricity meters These half hourly electricity meters are now required for businesses that are big users of electricity and tend to include warehouses, factories, breweries, large offices, and supermarkets. Essentially, the aim is to help a firm access cheaper prices because these prices are quite different from the electricity prices we pay for our homes. The prices paid by large consumers of electricity are defined in their contract but also the prices are affected by their location, the industry they work in as well as the time of year they look to switch providers. This means there is a need for experts who understand how half hourly electricity prices are compiled and how to find the cheapest rates. What half hourly electricity suppliers offer This will mean speaking with the team of experts at D-Energi who can discuss what half hourly electricity suppliers will offer. All firms that use HH meters will have access to the data – if it is not from their supplier they can get a software to analyse how and when they are using their energy. This data can also be used by a potential supplier to offer a competitive contract with accurate prices. Also, the data may highlight when a firm could switch to off-peak times to enjoy even cheaper prices or show how an energy efficiency programme may help reduce their bills. For larger businesses, this switch to off-peak periods may lead to a substantial reduction in their bills and boost productivity at the same time. For more help and information about understanding half hourly electricity prices and HH meters then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Save On Your Business Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
There are several reasons why firms and organisations should take time to source a new energy supplier, but the main one is to save on their business energy prices. Since energy bills account for a large part of a firm’s overheads, it is possible to save substantial amounts by switching providers. However, it’s important to appreciate that every business will have different energy demands and the commercial offerings from suppliers are designed to meet these specific needs. There are other issues that also have an impact on what you will be charged, including the location of your business, the industry you are working in and how much energy you use. Switching to a new business energy supplier The process will inevitably mean switching to a new business energy supplier but this is a seamless, well-established process with no loss of energy to your premises. It helps too that the information a potential new supplier needs can be found on a recent energy bill. There are other tricks to enjoy cheaper bills and these include signing up for more than one year – some suppliers may offer a deal of up to five years – which will help with cash flow planning and help protect your firm against energy price rises. The marketplace may appear to be confusing with lots of suppliers offering deals but the expert team at D-Energi can help explain how the market works and how your firm can access the best deals. Source a new business energy supplier Indeed, while using an online comparison service to source a new business energy supplier will be tempting as it appears to offer a quick and easy solution, though the site may not be searching all of the potential suppliers to find the right deal for you. This means a better and cheaper offer will not be found and the D-Energi team can find these and also offer a supplier with other benefits such as an energy consultancy to help your firm use less energy and enjoy lower bills. It may be that your organisation is looking to source their energy supply from a supplier who generates energy from renewable sources and these can be found too. Not only will you enjoy lower bills as a result but you will also boost your green credentials – an increasingly important for many firms today. For more help and information about how your firm can save on its business energy prices, then it’s time to contact the team at D-Energi.
