Swap Your Business Electricity Supplier to Save On Costs

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms and organisation should be looking at their overheads on a regular basis to save on costs and swapping your business electricity supplier is an effective way to do this. But how easy is it to do in practice? Well, a survey from the government has highlighted that around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched their energy provider. These level of inaction means they are probably paying more than is necessary for their energy costs so they would more than likely save a substantial amount by swapping to a new provider. And finding new energy suppliers is straightforward and when you decide to switch there is no loss of supply to your premises. But how much can your business save? Business electricity rates being offered The answer depends on the business electricity rates being offered which will depend on much energy you use, where you are located and the type of business you are in. There’s no doubt this is a tempting way to cut costs and there’s a financial incentive for researching the marketplace to contact energy providers directly. It’s also important to understand that an energy provider must offer a bespoke deal that is designed to meet your needs and you cannot access a dual fuel deal though you can have the same provider deliver electricity and gas to your premises. The process of finding and then contacting suppliers directly can be confusing and time-consuming so it may make sense to use an online comparison site. An easy way to find cheaper business electricity rates These sites offer an easy way to find cheaper business electricity rates but they may not be accessing all of the potential suppliers – so you may miss out on even cheaper and better deals. Also, you may believe that by using a comparison site you can do everything online and not speak with the supplier directly but, as mentioned previously, they will need to tailor their offering to your own specific requirements, so you will still need to contact them. It’s also worthwhile speaking to the D-Energi experts for them to explain other ways of saving more money on your energy overheads such as signing up to a flexible or fixed deal, agreeing to a longer contract of two or three years and even accepting the offer of an energy consultancy to reduce your bills further. If you and your business would like to know more about how to save on costs by swapping your business electricity supplier, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Try D-Energi for Your Next Commercial Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
In the drive to reduce overheads, firms should be looking to find a cheaper commercial electricity quote and this is where D-Energi can help. The best time for sourcing a new quote is when your current electricity provider gets in touch with their next contract details but the process to find a new supplier is different to the one for supplying our homes. The big difference is that the supplier must offer a bespoke deal that meets your needs so there will be no chance of accepting an offer without speaking to the supplier first. And if you run a larger enterprise, then you may be charged a half hourly rate for the electricity you use. Sourcing new commercial electricity rates However, the biggest reason for sourcing new commercial electricity rates is if your firm or organisation has not switched providers in recent years. You won’t be alone in this regard since a survey published by the Government highlights that around 40% of firms have never switched but this could be a costly mistake since your provider may have moved you on to ‘deemed’ rates, which tend to be dearer. While searching for a new energy supplier can be a time-consuming process, and one that is often confusing, with help from experts who understand how the market works, it can be straightforward. Indeed, switching to a better and cheaper electricity deal is easy and simply takes a quick phone call with one of the D-Energi team and they will be able to search the entire marketplace to compare various tariffs and find a deal that will suit your needs. Cheaper electric prices for your business Also, you could use an online comparison site in the search for cheaper electric prices for your business and this is a quick exercise to highlight what the potential market rate for your business is. Alternatively, you could contact business electricity suppliers directly, give them your details and then see what they have to offer you. It’s also important that you don’t restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers because if you are contacting providers directly they may offer similar deals and you may believe there are no real big savings to be made and so don’t bother switching. This is a mistake because there is a lot of competition in the marketplace currently with deals and tariffs changing daily – unless you search for a new provider your business won’t know what these deals are and you will not reduce your overheads. If you want to know more about finding a cheaper commercial electricity quote then contact the experts at D-Energi.
