Finding Cheap Commercial Electricity Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
The market for offering cheap commercial electricity rates is a competitive one so it is relatively easy for a firm to find a cheaper new electricity supplier. However, there are some considerations that all firms and organisations will need to take into account when comparing business electricity tariffs and these include: Business size: the firm’s turnover and size of office space will be crucial for a potential supplier. Some will specialise in a business’s size and offering but not others. Business planning: knowing how long the business will be remaining in their premises will also dictate whether they have a short or long-term contract; a shorter term contract will bring flexibility for switching. Know your energy usage: all firms should check their bills to see how much electricity they are using as this will help a potential new supplier estimate the usage and potential tariff. Access cheaper electric prices being charged Knowing when the firm has its peak uses for electricity means they may be able to access cheaper electric prices being charged for use in the early hours of the morning or during the night. It’s also important that businesses look carefully at the deal being offered so it meets their needs. Firms and organisations should also be wary about fixed term contracts, particularly those that may tie them up for four years. While longer fixed contracts offer much lower rates and better deals, they are more difficult for a firm to break and switch to a different supplier. It’s also important that firms do their research and compare quotes from various suppliers and they need to do this within the window of opportunity before the current contract comes to an end. Compare a commercial electricity quote between suppliers This means they will need to allocate time and resources for someone to compare a commercial electricity quote between suppliers effectively and for smaller firms, this may be a difficult undertaking. However, the payoff is that they will probably source a much cheaper energy supply for their firm and save substantial amounts in the process; just about every firm will save money by switching to a new supplier. Just a word of caution for those firms who are using comparison websites for business energy prices; the website itself may not be searching the entire market or indeed all of the potential energy suppliers and may not be delivering the cheapest deals or tariffs. Also, the firm will need to contact the supplier directly because their energy quote will need to be bespoke.   For more help and advice about finding cheap commercial electricity rates, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi to find out what deals and offers are available.

Compare Business Gas Prices and Find a New Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s a straightforward process to compare business gas prices and firms will be able to save lots of money by doing so. One of the best ways for reducing overheads on commercial gas supply is to sign a fixed term contract. This means the firm will begin the search for a price for their gas supply towards the end of the contract which generally runs for one year. It’s also possible to get two and three-year contracts which will deliver even lower prices. However, the only drawback to signing longer term contracts is they may be more difficult to get out of should the firm or organisation wish to cancel before the contract ends. Opt for the cheapest gas tariff According to some industry experts, the savings to be made by firms and organisations could be as high as 60% when they opt for the cheapest gas tariff. While many firms will opt to use one of the ‘Big Six’ gas suppliers because they know the name and are reassured of supply, there are big savings to be made by switching to smaller suppliers as well. Other issues to consider when looking at comparing gas prices is for those high volume consumers as they will see the price falling even more. This means the firm should really have a good idea of how much gas they will probably use during the term of a contract so they get the best and most accurate quote possible. This also brings us to the potential of the firm being on a rollover contract; this happened when their fixed term contract comes to an end and they will be switched to a more expensive ‘deemed’ rate. Get the best commercial gas quote It’s important that all firms and organisations pay attention to when their contract comes to an end and when the renewal occurs they can then get the best commercial gas quote. A surprising number of firms will not check the potential for switching business gas suppliers and will be paying more than they need to for their gas supply. Perhaps the best reason for switching supplier is not just to save lots of money but also look for those suppliers that may offer better levels of customer service and some suppliers offer energy audits as well. The potential of undertaking an energy audit is to bring about energy efficiencies that mean the firm will be using less gas which will bring its own benefits with lower bills over the long term. For more help and advice about how to compare business gas prices and finding a new supplier, then speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.

Energy Consultancy for Business Explained

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms and organisations should be looking to reduce their overheads on a regular basis and an energy consultancy may well help save cash for those interested organisations. That’s because the energy consultants will know and understand the energy supply market and help the business find the best deals and tariffs that meet their needs. On top of this, the energy consultancy will also undertake an energy audit to ensure that the savings being made are permanent and long-term. For instance, the consultants may highlight areas where the firm can save large amounts of money by making simple changes to their everyday activities; this may mean switching off unused office lights, turning down the heating and even switching off computers and screens at night. One reason a firm may be looking to bring in the experts is that they believe their energy bills may be too high but they may not understand how to lower them effectively. A basic energy services audit Industry experts say that even a basic energy services audit should see a firm’s energy bills being reduced by 10% at the very least while many firms may also enjoy savings of around 25%. This may mean introducing energy efficiencies and upgrading various pieces of equipment but that is still a huge saving. That’s on top of the energy audit locating better deals and tariffs which mean the overall savings can be quite substantial. The energy experts will also be able to help decipher the firm’s energy bills to ensure they are on the best deal currently, if not, highlight where potential savings can be made. It may appear to be a strange way to invest in lower energy bills by paying experts to find a cheaper deal or tariff and better ways of using energy but it does work. Expert should be able to deliver energy savings However, the expert should be able to deliver energy savings that far outweigh their own costs. Whether the audit is for retail premises, agricultural farms or a factory; an energy consultancy will pay dividends. The bottom line is that all firms and organisations can become more energy-efficient which is not only good for our environment but also good for the firm’s overheads with lower running costs. The energy audit may also be beneficial for keeping costs down in a factory with heavy usage of energy in the manufacturing process.   For more help and information about energy consultancy and the impact of having an energy audit undertaken, then speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Finding the Best Commercial Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
Every firm and organisation in the UK will be looking at their overheads on a regular basis and it makes sense that they should be looking to find the best commercial energy prices to help the lower running costs. The first step is to undertake a search of the potential deals and tariffs by visiting energy suppliers’ websites and also online price comparison websites. While this is a time-consuming process it will help the firm understand how the energy market works and what the current prices are. For those firms who’ve never switched suppliers then they have probably been rolled over onto a deemed contract so they will be paying more than they need to for their energy needs. This means that by simply switching energy suppliers they could substantially reduce their energy bills. Finding a commercial energy quote Finding a commercial energy quote is a straightforward process and the online comparison websites will give a fair indication of what the market rates are. However, the prices being displayed are unlikely to be the price the firm or organisation enjoys since the energy deal will need to be a bespoke offering and all comparison websites will do this. In addition, the firm also needs to be wary about using online comparison websites because they may not be searching the entire market to find the best commercial energy quote or indeed all of the potential suppliers. In addition to the ‘big six’ suppliers, the commercial energy market has grown in recent years and there is a wide variety of offerings now available stretching from small suppliers to those who offer firms 100% renewable energy supply. Quote for commercial energy prices So, once the firm has a quote for commercial energy prices from a potential supplier, the switchover process is straightforward and there will be no interruption to energy supply to the premises. However, the second and easiest way of finding a better energy deal for a firm or organisation is to speak with experts in the field who will know what the latest deals are to deliver a supplier who will best meet the organisation’s needs. This will mean speaking with the team at D-Energi about what a firm is looking for and they will strive to meet their ambition in lowering bills and seeing an improvement in, for instance, things like customer service and other potential offerings. Among these will be the option of an energy audit from a potential new energy supplier so that the firm not only enjoys lower bills but also takes steps to lower their energy consumption so that their savings are greater and have more of an impact over the long-term.   For those firms and organisations that are interested in finding the best commercial energy prices without having to spend hours visiting websites and comparison sites, then speak with the helpful team at D-Energi for more information.
