Accessing the Cheapest Business Gas Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
It should be part of your firm’s normal processes to access the cheapest business gas prices every year when your current deal comes up for renewal. That’s because you will be reassured that you are not overpaying for your business gas supply and switching to a new provider is straightforward with no loss of supply. However, not every business owner will take the time to find a new supplier and if you haven’t switched for several years, then it’s likely you will be paying more than is necessary because you will have been moved to an out of contract tariff, known as deemed rates. Deemed rates tend to be more expensive – they can be up to 30% more than a new customer will be paying with the same supplier. Compare business gas prices The process to compare business gas prices from a new supplier is straightforward and you will need to appreciate there is a range of factors influencing the prices and deals being offered by suppliers for meeting your electricity needs. For example, prices will be affected by movements in the wholesale supply market and the location of your firm and the number of employees you have will also affect prices being quoted. Despite this, it is still a rewarding process in sourcing a new business gas supplier with lower rates because there’s no reason to be paying more for gas and you will be boosting profitability at the same time. There may also be some confusion among business owners that the process is too involved and you run the risk of losing supply but, as mentioned earlier, this will not happen. While you could use a comparison website to find a cheaper business gas supplier, the site is unlikely to be searching the entire marketplace so you really should use the experts at D-Energi who can do this on your behalf. Contacting D-Energi to find cheap business gas suppliers For a busy business owner, perhaps the most important factor when contacting D-Energi to find cheap business gas suppliers is that it will only take a phone call that lasts several minutes. In doing so, the experts can take a few details and then use the information to find a bespoke deal that will meet your needs and be probably cheaper than the prices you currently pay. Alternatively, you could contact suppliers directly to find a deal but this is a time-consuming process and you’ll still need to understand how much a new deal will cost and then arrange the switchover. If you would like to know more about how to access the cheapest business gas prices and have experts take care of the switchover process, then you need to speak with the D-Energi team today.

by Simon Thompson

Instead, the website will usually have a select number of providers that will be asked to quote. From there, the business owner will still need to speak with the recommended supplier because they must offer a bespoke deal.

Are Yours the Cheapest Business Electricity Prices?

by Simon Thompson
 
It may appear to be a confusing question, but is your firm enjoying the cheapest business electricity prices currently available? If you haven’t switched providers in recent years, then the answer is likely to be ‘No’. That’s because your supplier will have moved you to an out of contract tariff, known as deemed rates, which can be up to 20% or 30% more expensive than prices being paid by new clients. And as all business owners will appreciate, controlling electricity costs is important to help boost profitability for a sustainable business. Finding the cheapest business electricity rates UK However, most energy providers will not publish a list of tariffs, so finding the cheapest business electricity rates UK can become complicated. Also, the prices available will vary depending on the industry you work in, how many employees you have and also where you are located. This means comparing tariffs between providers becomes more difficult but it’s not impossible. You could contact suppliers directly and then compare their deals which will need to be bespoke for meeting your needs to find the best offering. It’s always worthwhile calculating what a potential new deal will cost you over the course of a year to ensure you are getting a cheaper deal – you should also check for any hidden fees. Finding the cheapest business electricity supplier One of the issues in finding the cheapest business electricity supplier is the confusion used over some terminology. You will need to understand that the unit rate you pay is for the amount of electricity your firm consumes, while the standing charge is the amount levied for paying the National Grid to deliver energy. A busy business owner, you may believe you are accessing a cheap deal because the unit charge is much lower than what you currently pay without realising that the standing charge is more expensive. This means there are no savings. It may be that your firm also wants to source a supplier who generates renewable energy to help boost your business ethos and these providers are also available. For many firms, an effective way of sourcing the cheapest business electricity prices is to search the entire marketplace and utilise the experience and expertise of the D-Energi team to do this on their behalf and they will source the best deal available for meeting your needs.

Appreciating Business Gas Prices Per Kwh

by Simon Thompson
 
When it comes to appreciating business gas prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour), the main issue to understand is the influences that affect the prices being quoted. Not every firm or organisation will understand that a supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal so the price being quoted for your needs may well be very different from the price being quoted to a business located next door. That’s because there is a range of factors, including wholesale price changes, that will affect how much you could potentially pay. These include: The geographic location of your business premises How many employees you have, plus future expansion plans The industry you operate in The average gas and electricity you consume annually. Other issues include how long the business gas supply contract will be as some suppliers will offer better rates for two or three-year long contracts. Compare business electricity prices per kWh Along with finding cheaper gas suppliers, you may be looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour). There are a number of issues when sourcing electricity and gas suppliers and you must understand the price being quoted per kilowatt-hour. A supplier will detail the unit charges, which is the amount that you will pay for the actual supply of gas or electricity to your premises. This unit charge may well be lower than you currently pay so you may believe it is a cheaper deal. However, you also need to pay close attention to the standing charge being quoted and this is the amount being paid for delivering gas and electricity to your premises by the National Grid. It’s the standing charge that may well be much more expensive than you currently pay so your firm will not be making any real savings and, worse, could be paying much more. Business electricity prices per kWh between suppliers The other issue when you want to compare business electricity prices per kWh between suppliers is the question of a bespoke deal. Since a supplier must tailor their offering for meeting your business needs, their quote will be bespoke which means that comparing their offer with that from another supplier becomes more difficult. It also becomes time-consuming but the easiest way is to simply calculate how much a potential deal will be costing your firm over the course of the year. This is also an issue when you use a business energy comparison website because you’ll still need to negotiate directly with a recommended supplier, give them more details and then receive a bespoke quote in return. When it comes to appreciating business gas prices per kWh, and also electricity prices, the easiest way of understanding how the market works and accessing the cheaper prices is to speak with the D-Energi team.
