by Simon Thompson
 
While there are several tried and tested methods to save on energy costs, the best way to save on business electricity costs is to use the team at D-Energi. There’s one very simple reason for this and that’s because they can scour the whole market of business energy providers on your behalf to find the very best deal and any other potential incentives a supplier will offer. It’s important that all firms and organisations search among the many suppliers every year to find a cheaper provider – and that supplier may be offering things like an energy consultancy or a dedicated account manager. However, this is not as straightforward as many business owners may believe but the D-Energi offering is the quickest and reassuring way of achieving this beneficial outcome. Compare business electricity per kWh deals The most important aspect when looking to reduce costs is to compare business electricity per kWh deals between suppliers. This is important because you are looking to reduce the unit cost per electricity, which is what you pay for each kilowatt-hour, that your firm consumes. But that’s not the entire story since you must ensure that you pay a lower standard charge, which is the amount paid for electricity to be delivered electricity to the premises. Put simply, some potential providers may have a much higher standing charge without highlighting this to you, so you end up paying more than you currently do and you’ll be locked into a one-year-long contract that is costing more. However, this will not apply if you are a microbusiness and may be able to leave the contract without penalty. Best route to compare business energy per kWh deals So, the best route to compare business energy per kWh deals is to use a platform that will do the hard work for you. You can do this either by: Using one of the popular business energy comparison sites but be aware that they may only be searching a certain number of providers and you may find cheaper and better deals on offer elsewhere. Use the D-Energi offering: By using D-Energi you will be quickly and effectively searching the entire offering among providers interested in supplying your business and you will also get help in understanding the contract and the switchover process too.   There’s a lot to like about the D-Energi offering and if this is something you would like to know more about, then call the friendly team today.

How to Get A Half Hourly Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
Whether your business or organisation is looking to renew its current half hourly supply contract, or upgrading from a lower demand, you will be needing the cheapest half hourly electricity quote for meeting your needs. The big issue when it comes to sourcing cheap half hourly quotes from providers is that there is a half hourly meter requirement to do so. That’s because this meter will record your firm’s electricity consumption and send this information directly to the supplier every 30 minutes. However, in the search for the best half hourly electricity prices, this information can also be shared with a potential supplier so they understand your firm’s needs and when your peak periods of demand are. Half hourly electricity tariffs It also needs to be appreciated that the half hourly electricity tariffs being accessed by your firm are not available to small and medium-sized firms. That’s because the prices are much lower, though all firms will have a mandatory requirement for a half hourly meter to be installed if their peak demand exceeds 100 kW. In some circumstances, those firms with a peak demand of 70 kW could apply to have a half hourly meter installed in a bid to reduce their electricity prices. Also, the competition among half hourly electricity providers is competitive and prices will fluctuate regularly. Procurement process for a cheap half hourly electricity deal Indeed, along with fluctuating prices, the procurement process for a cheap half hourly electricity deal is more complicated than that for smaller firms. It’s for this reason why Ofgem, the sector’s regulator, recommends that firms team up with a third party who understand how this market works in a bid to get the best deal. The third party is also able to analyse the contract to ensure that not only will it be meeting your current and future needs, but that it will also be reducing your costs. This is the reason why the government brought in its P272 legislation which saw the introduction of half hourly meters to help firms enjoy accurate billing and have information that the potential supplier could utilise and tailor their bespoke offering to you. For those firms who want to get a half hourly electricity quote from a range of providers, and use experts to help them, then you need to speak with a team at D-Energi today.

A Guide to the Cheapest Business Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
This guide is aimed at those firms that want to find the cheapest business electricity prices to help boost profitability and lower overheads. The first thing to appreciate is that when your current provider reveals what your next contract rates will be is to take this as a prompt to search the marketplace for an alternative offer. It might be that the current supplier is offering the best rates but unless you check the marketplace, you will not know for sure. Indeed, it’s a straightforward process to compare business electricity prices online and competition is strong among providers so it’s worth shopping around. It’s also a good idea not to restrict your search of new energy prices to the ‘big six’ providers as their deals may be fairly similar. Finding the cheapest business electricity rates in the UK It helps that there are websites aimed at finding the cheapest business electricity rates in the UK by comparing offers from various providers. However, while the sites are easy to use, you need to be aware that there are some potential pitfalls, including: The site may have a restricted number of providers to contact This means there could be better deals available elsewhere You will have to negotiate directly with the recommended supplier.   So, if you’re wanting a quick way to find the best deal, then this is probably not it. Instead, you should contact the team of experts at D-Energi who can search the entire market on your firm’s behalf to find a great deal, carry out negotiations and explain any parts of the contract you may find confusing. They can do this in just a few minutes and take care of the paperwork as well. Search for the cheapest business electricity supplier This search for the cheapest business electricity supplier should be carried out every year and there are two good reasons for doing so: By searching you will be reassured that you are not overpaying for your electricity consumption You will also help to stimulate competition in the marketplace.   Unfortunately, one government survey highlights that around 40% of firms in the UK haven’t switched their provider in recent years, so it’s likely they’ve been moved to more expensive contract rates automatically. It is easy to avoid this happening to you and your firm and if you really want to find the cheapest business electricity prices quickly, then you need to contact the D-Energi team today on 0800 781 7626.
