by Simon Thompson
 
Everyone in business knows money can be saved on their energy bills but how does a busy organisation find the best commercial energy quote? The simple answer is to contact the experts at D-Energi who have the expertise and access to find the latest deals available for businesses looking to reduce their energy costs. Among the reasons for using experts in the field is that the energy rates for businesses are changing every day so it can be a tricky process in finding the best electricity and gas tariffs that are available. This means it can also be a time-consuming process and the business may decide it’s easier to remain on their contract with their current supplier but this could be a potentially expensive mistake to make. Remain with their current commercial energy supplier That’s because around 40% of small firms in the UK remain with their current commercial energy supplier when they could be saving substantial sums by switching suppliers for a better rate. The process to switch suppliers is simple and there is no interruption to the energy supply to a business premises. However, unlike finding a cheaper energy deal for our homes, the market is slightly different for businesses since the supplier will need more detailed information because the energy needs for a business are different and varied. For instance, they may save money by switching when their peak demand occurs and move to a cheaper tariff. Find better commercial energy prices for a multi-site business needs It’s also possible to find better commercial energy prices for a multi-site business needs as well as green energy suppliers for those who want to do their bit for the environment. The process to find and then switch from one business energy supplier to another is quick and simple and all it takes is one phone call for the process to begin. The best time to contact an organisation that understands the business energy market is when the current business energy contract is about to expire. Under new rules, the businesses energy supplier must tell their customer what the new tariff is going to be and a quick search of the market will reveal that there are probably cheaper and better deals available. All the business needs to do is to have a recent energy bill to hand when they contact the experts at D-Energi because this will contain metering information and also their energy usage which will help deliver a better energy deal. So, when it comes to finding the best commercial energy quote it’s important to appreciate that the process is simpler than it has ever been before and Ofgem, the energy watchdog, is keen that businesses shop around to find better deals and save money – the helpful team up D-Energi can give more help and advice about the process and of any potential savings too.

Why compare business energy suppliers?

by Simon Thompson
 
There’s an easy answer as to why a firm should compare business energy suppliers and that is to save money. It’s important to appreciate that business energy tariffs are not like the ones for our homes and they work differently and the pricing for business energy use also changes from one day to the next. This means it’s important that a business either has someone dedicated to finding the ideal business energy deal when they need to renew their contract or approach experts in the field who can analyse the entire market offering to find the best deal available. Indeed, businesses will find that the market for their business is a competitive one and not all businesses use the same amount of energy but they also use it in different ways. Compare business electricity tariffs For this reason, a business should really have a business deal tailor-made to their needs and if they have more than one site then it is possible to get a multisite energy deal to save even more money and this is an easy process when looking to compare business electricity tariffs. In addition, any firm looking for a multisite energy deal will find they will not only save money but also time because all of their energy bills can be put on one tariff. Also, the energy market is moving towards half hourly metering so they will receive more accurate meter readings and a business energy supplier will know exactly when and what the businesses energy needs are. Save substantial amounts by looking to compare business gas suppliers It’s not just a question of comparing business electricity suppliers since a firm can save substantial amounts by looking to compare business gas suppliers too. No one wants to overpay on the energy needs but for those firms who simply roll-over their contract with their existing supplier means they could be saving substantial amounts of money every year. Some business owners may be wary that the search for a better business energy deal may be a time-consuming and complicated process which is why it makes sense to use experts to help find the best available deal. For any business looking to compare business energy suppliers then it will be time well spent by speaking with the helpful team at D-Energi for more information since they will have access to the market’s latest deals and tariffs.

Everything a business needs to know about P272

by Simon Thompson
 
There has been a crucial change to the business energy supply market and all firms and organisations will soon have to appreciate what P272 to means for them. That’s if they haven’t already undergone the transition which came about in October 2014 when Ofgem approved P272 which demanded that all business electricity meters be migrated to the Half Hourly market. Essentially, this means that a business with a non-half hourly profile class electricity meter will need to change it. The aim is to bring industry efficiencies which should deliver lower energy bills for businesses along with other benefits. Find out whether your firm or organisation is affected by P272 To find out whether your firm or organisation is affected by P272 then they will need to check the non-half hourly electricity meters to see if they are in the Profile Class 05-08. By doing so, the energy sector can monitor for actual consumption of energy from the data it receives every half-hour through remote communications with the meters. That’s for larger firms and for smaller organisations the metering system delivers a ‘load profile’ which tells the supplier what the firm’s energy consumption has been for a given half-hour from the previous patterns of usage. This half hour delivery of data will also lead to lower and more accurate bills which will help to counter any minor inconvenience switching meters may bring. Ofgem’s enthusiasm for P272 Another reason for Ofgem’s enthusiasm for P272 is that the switch will also encourage firms to move their usage of energy to cheaper periods which will help lower bills and smooth out levels of peak demand. By doing so, a company can also reduce their costs because energy suppliers are offering lower tariffs for those who can change the energy usage periods. Ultimately, this will says Ofgem, lead to a more balanced and secure supply of energy thanks to the data provided by the P272 half hourly meters. It’s a simple check to find out whether a business is already on half hourly, or HH, meters and they can do so by checking their bill to see whether the ‘electricity supply number’ box in the left-hand corner has the numbers 05 – 08 in it. Finally, while the scheme to move business energy meters to the half hourly system began in November 2015 it is scheduled to be completed by April 2017; this means all firm should have made the switch by then. For more help and advice about P272 and how to gain a better and cheaper tariff for a business, contact the experts at D-energi.

How to Find Cheap Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
With the prospect of energy prices rising means many firms and organisations will be looking to find a cheap business energy supplier in a bid to mitigate rising costs. This makes sense since having cheaper energy means profitability will be boosted but few firms take the trouble to find a cheaper energy supplier. Even though the process of finding a new supplier for business energy is much simpler, many firms tend to remain with their current supplier on a rollover contract basis. One startling statistic revealed by the Competition and Markets Authority in 2015 revealed that 40% of UK businesses have not bothered to switch their energy supplier in the last five years which means many could be overpaying by huge amounts. Looking for cheap business electricity deals It’s important to appreciate that for any organisation looking for cheap business electricity deals that they are straightforward and quick to find. While many firms may undertake an Internet search to find a new supplier, it is much easier and quicker to use an organisation that looks at the entire market to find the best deal and tariff for the business. It’s also important to appreciate that business energy suppliers do not have a one size fits all approach to their energy prices, unlike domestic suppliers, so they will be needing more information so they can tailor a suitable tariff. Find cheap business gas suppliers In addition to finding cheap business energy suppliers, many firms will be looking to find cheap business gas suppliers for their heating needs, for instance. That’s because energy firms will supply electricity and gas separately and may offer a dual billing arrangement; they can even supply different tariffs for different premises. Some suppliers will also offer green energy deals for those who want to do their bit for the environment. While many firms could undertake the process themselves and ring around several potential business energy suppliers to find the best deal, which may take some haggling and negotiation, they will inevitably save money. The amount to be saved will vary depending on the business’s size but the potential can be huge; some firms will save thousands of pounds every year by simply switching energy suppliers. So, for those businesses looking to find cheap business energy suppliers then contact the experts at D-energi who can offer impartial advice and find a cheaper deal for the business to save money on their bills.
