How to Access Cheap Half Hourly Electricity Tariffs

by Simon Thompson
 
If you wanted to know more about how to access cheap half hourly electricity tariffs, then you need to speak with the experts. That’s because sourcing prices for commercial half hourly electricity will need specialist knowledge of how the energy sector operates. Also, the supplier procurement process needs to be managed properly because it is rather different than the process that a small- or medium-sized business will undertake for finding a new and cheaper electricity provider. However, the big difference is that larger consumers of electricity will have half hourly meters installed, so there’s no need to estimate how much energy you will potentially use over the course of a half hourly supply contract. A half hourly electricity quote for meeting your needs Instead, these meters are providing data that is an ideal source of information for a new provider to put together their half hourly electricity quote for meeting your needs. That’s because the data is recorded every 30 minutes and then sent to the supplier, so they can send accurate bills. This information is also available to you as a business so you can look at the peak periods of demand to analyse ways of reducing consumption and also for a potential supplier to use. All firms, regardless of the industry they work in, who have a peak demand of more than 100 kW will have these mandatory meters installed. It’s always worth checking if you are moving premises that a half hourly meter has already been installed as this will make the transition easier. Some firms with a slightly lower peak demand can also ask for these meters to be installed as they give access to cheaper energy prices. Installing HH meters for business One of the benefits that the government and Ofgem put forward for installing HH meters for business is that they will help firms reduce their electricity bills more easily. With so much detailed data and a competitive marketplace, it’s worth the time and effort for businesses to use the expertise of the D-Energi team to find a new electricity provider. Not only can the experienced team help find a new HH supplier, but they can also check that the contract is suitable and will meet your current and future needs. There’s a lot to consider during a half hourly electricity procurement process and it’s important that you do this thoroughly to deliver the expected savings. If you would like to know how you can access cheap half hourly electricity tariffs, then you need to speak with the D-Energi team today.

Just 1 Tip to Compare Business Gas Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
If you and your firm want to access the cheapest rates possible for a UK business, then you need to compare business gas prices effectively. However, industrial gas prices are more complicated than those being offered for our homes since suppliers will look at various issues to put together a bespoke quote. Among these will be the geographic location of your firm, the industry you work in and how many employees you have. It’s also important that you check every year when your current supplier tells you of your next year’s rates because if you don’t respond, or switch to a cheaper provider, then you may find they will move your firm onto a more expensive out of contract plan. Search for the cheapest business gas prices In the search for the cheapest business gas prices, you’ll need to understand various terms, particularly for the type of contract being offered. A fixed-term business gas contract is usually for one year with a guaranteed price throughout its duration. However, you may find signing up for a two- or three-year contract may mean enjoying even cheaper prices. You will also need to understand business gas prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour) which is for the amount of gas you consume and the standing charge is the amount you pay for the gas to be supplied to your firm. This is where it is likely that a business may end up paying more than they currently do in the belief they will are paying less. That’s because the standing charge will vary between providers and you should ensure that you not only access a lower unit rate but also a cheaper standing charge too. Finding the cheapest business gas quote So, how to go about finding the cheapest business gas quote? The easiest way is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can search the entire market on your behalf to find the best bespoke deal for you. Alternatively, you could contact suppliers directly or use a small business gas comparison website to find out what the potential savings could be when you switch to a new provider. Before you do sign up to a recommended provider on an industrial gas comparison site, you should check how many suppliers they are asking to quote and it’s unlikely that they are searching the entire market for you. To avoid this, and to enjoy the 1 tip to compare business gas prices, then you need to speak with the D-Energi team today.

How to Review Business Energy Prices Per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
Firstly, when you want to review business energy prices per kWh, you need to appreciate that these costs are made up of unit rates. The unit rate is what you will pay for the actual unit of energy for the gas or electricity consumed. And there’s also a standing charge to pay, which is an amount that goes towards paying for the supplying of electricity and gas to your firm’s premises. It’s important to highlight at this point that when you review prices that you calculate what the potential new tariff will cost over 12 months since the standing charge can be much higher with a new provider and eradicate any savings. Understand business electricity rates per kWh The next issue is to understand business electricity rates per kWh because this can be a complicated process, particularly since you will have to source separate quotes for your electricity and gas supply. This then makes it more difficult to calculate the best value deal for your firm and understanding the price per kWh can make it easier to carry out this comparison. By doing so, you will ensure that you will be moving to the correct tariff for meeting your firm’s current and future needs. Essentially, the larger the demand from business, the cheaper the unit price per kWh will be. Obviously, it’s this price that will vary between business energy providers and they will have criteria for putting a deal together. Compare energy prices This means that when you need to compare energy prices, you should appreciate that a potential provider is looking at: How much gas or electricity your firm consumes every year Your geographic location and the sector you work in Whether you have plans to expand or even move premises during the contract’s duration The size of your business and how many employees you have also had an impact on the deal. You should also be aware that some energy suppliers may decline to offer a quote because your firm’s demand may be too low or they do not supply to your geographic location. While there’s a lot to consider when it comes to reviewing business energy prices per kWh there is an easy way of doing this and sourcing a cheaper deal – and that is to contact D-Energi today.

Your Checklist for Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
The first thing to appreciate for any checklist that will help deliver cheap business energy deals is that all providers will offer a bespoke tariff. This means that the suppliers are working to different criteria and helps explain why firms located close to your premises may be paying completely different rates. You need to understand: A provider will need to know the industry you work in and how much energy you consume every year. How many employees who have and whether there are any plans for expansion. Whether you need an energy supply to one premises or more than one premises.   Checklist to access a cheap business electricity deal The checklist to access a cheap business electricity deal will also need to include the fact that the size of your business will dictate whether a provider will even quote for meeting your needs and why the rates vary. Essentially, if you’re a large consumer of electricity then your firm will enjoy lower rates than a micro business will access. On top of this, you’ll need to calculate what the average cost of a new commercial electricity contract will be over the course of the year. This is relatively easy to do since you use the price per kWh (kilowatt-hour) being quoted and apply that to your average consumption level. However, you also need to calculate what the daily standing charge will be since this varies – and it could have a big impact on how much you can pay or even save on your commercial energy rates. Accessing a cheap business gas deal The checklist for accessing a cheap business gas deal is the same as it is for electricity. It’s important that you get as many quotes from potential providers as is possible to ensure you get the best deal for meeting your firm’s needs. That’s easier said than done and should you decide to contact providers directly then this will take a lot of time and you could decide to use a commercial energy comparison website. While these websites are popular, they are probably not searching the entire market, so you should see how many firms are being approached for a quote. If you want to ask the entire marketplace to quote for meeting your firm’s needs and ensure that you’ll get the best cheap business energy deal, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi to act on your behalf.
