Tips to Carry Out a Business Energy Comparison Effectively

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for tips to carry out a business energy comparison exercise effectively, then this article will help. The best and easiest way to compare the offers between business energy providers is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the entire market and can find a deal that will best meet your needs. Alternatively, you could speak with a potential energy provider individually, give them your details and see what they have to offer. This process can be confusing and time-consuming because each supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal so undertaking a like-for-like analysis may become difficult. Undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers This also extends to undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers to find a cheaper deal because of the way providers put their bills together. You’ll need to appreciate the unit charge for each deal and also the standing charge; the unit charge is for the actual energy used by your business, while the standing charge is to help pay for the supply via the National Grid to your premises. There’s no doubt though that undertaking a business electricity comparison exercise will be time well spent and the optimum time to do this is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract rates. Failing to search for a better deal may see your business being moved onto a ‘deemed’ rate, which tends to be pricier than those being offered to new customers. This is always best avoided. Undertake a business gas comparison exercise This issue of being rolled over automatically onto a more expensive tariff also extends to gas suppliers, so you should undertake a business gas comparison exercise as well. Perhaps the easiest way to do this quickly is to use an online comparison site for gas and electricity to see what the potential offers are and whether you will save any money on your overheads. The only issue with these sites is that they may not search the entire marketplace, so you may miss out on cheaper and better deals from other providers not listed on the comparison site. Also, because a new supplier must offer a bespoke deal, you will still need to contact them and give them your details so they can tailor their offering to your needs. It’s much easier to carry out a business energy comparison by simply asking the experienced team at D-Energi what is available for your firm and they can do this in a few minutes by searching the whole marketplace and take care of the switchover process as well.

How to Get A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
The process to get a cheaper business electricity supplier is not only straightforward but it’s also a simple one as well. The government is encouraging more firms to switch electricity suppliers on a regular basis which will help lower prices and also stimulate competition in the marketplace as suppliers compete to offer the very best prices. Unfortunately, a government survey has revealed that 40% of firms and organisations in the UK haven’t bothered to switch their electricity supplier so they are likely to be paying more than they should be doing for their electricity needs. Indeed, this comparison exercise between business electricity suppliers should be carried out every year to ensure your firm is not overpaying on its energy bills. And considering it can only take a few minutes to carry out, the potential returns make this a financially attractive undertaking. Find cheaper business electricity rates The process to find cheaper business electricity rates could see a firm contacting providers directly or using one of the online comparison sites. The first course of action may be time-consuming and there may be better deals out there, particularly if your search is restricted to the ‘big six’ energy providers because they may offer similar deals. The second course of action also has issues as the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace so there may be better providers available with lower tariffs and you’ll still need to speak with the provider recommended by the site. That is because all electricity providers need to offer a bespoke deal to ensure it meets the needs of the business or organisation. Finding cheaper and better business electricity prices It’s this element of finding cheaper and better business electricity prices that makes comparing quotes on a like-for-like basis difficult. Despite this, there is a potential for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds every year with larger firms potentially saving several thousands of pounds to make this an exercise worth undertaking. And let’s not forget that most business owners simply don’t have a lot of time to spare when it comes to comparing business energy quotes because they can spend the time doing something more effective within the business. However, with just one phone call to the team of experts at D-Energi, it is possible to find out how you can get a cheaper business electricity supplier and save money on your overheads.

How to Swap to Cheaper Commercial Electricity Rates

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s important that all firms and organisations are not paying more than they need to for their energy needs and they’re able to swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates if so. Indeed, the sector’s watchdog Ofgem recommends firms compare energy deals and tariffs regularly to help ensure they are on the right deal for them. This is something of an issue since a government survey revealed recently that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching their energy providers. This means they’ve probably been moved onto more expensive deals automatically when they can find cheaper tariffs in just a few minutes. A cheaper commercial electricity quote Sourcing a cheaper commercial electricity quote can be done easily by either contacting electricity providers directly, giving them a few details and see what they have to offer for your business. The firm can also use an online comparison site to search more easily for a cheaper energy provider. However, the comparison site may not search the whole of the market so there may be better and cheaper deals available that the firm won’t get to hear about. This comparison site process should reveal the cheaper tariffs though a lot depends on the firm’s location, how much energy they use and they could utilise the information to negotiate a better deal with their current provider. However, it’s important that they do act when their current supplier contacts them with details of the following year’s energy contract prices because this is the prompt they need to switch energy providers. Finding cheaper electric prices will reduce overheads There’s no doubt that by finding cheaper electric prices will help reduce overheads and boost profitability and the process is not daunting. Indeed, the switchover process is not only simple but it’s seamless so there’s no loss of electricity supply to the premises when this is undertaken. It’s also possible for a firm with several premises to have just one supplier and one bill covering all of their outlets. Firms could also find cheaper prices if they want to sign up for more than a year’s contract, which might be a good idea if you believe electric prices may rise over the short term. If you would like to know more about how you can swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates and deal with experts with lots of experience in doing so, then it’s time to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi.

How to Access Cheap Business Gas and Electric Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
With dozens of potential suppliers to choose from, you could be forgiven for thinking that the route to access cheap business gas and electric deals is a confusing one. It doesn’t have to be like this and for those firms looking to switch their business gas and electricity supplier, the process can be straightforward. Indeed, with so many business energy suppliers available to choose from, this is a great time to switch to enjoy not only the best deals that suit your business but the lowest prices as well. There’s no doubt that with such a wide range of choice in gas and electricity suppliers that this can be an overwhelming process in selecting a new supplier but you could speak with the experts at D-Energi who will explain more about what’s available. Best time to choose a cheap business gas supplier For those who may be wondering when the best time is to choose a cheap business gas supplier, and also for electricity, then it’s when your current supplier gets in touch with next year’s contract details. The size of your business, how much energy you use, the type of contract and the length of contract you want will all be important when you want to find a new supplier. The first step is to find out when your current contract runs out and if you don’t know then you should find out because this is when you can switch your supplier when this window of opportunity opens. Your current energy contract or bill should have the contract renewal date on it and you’ll need to appreciate that the window for switching will only be open for a short time. Failure to switch may see you being moved onto a more expensive contract automatically. Contract renewal rates Not every supplier will get in touch with their contract renewal rates, particularly for large and medium energy users, which means you’ll need to be prepared beforehand. This rule is not the same for a micro-business because the energy supplier will need to write to them and inform them what their new deal will be. Once you know when you can switch you can then find out the tariffs and deals available for the supply of your business’s electricity and gas. You could contact the suppliers directly to find out what their bespoke offering might be or use a comparison website but this site may not be searching all of the suppliers in the market. Instead, you could spend a few minutes speaking with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to deliver cheap business gas and electric deals that will meet your needs.
