Understanding Commercial Electricity Rates to Save

by Simon Thompson
 
In order for firms and organisations to save money on their overheads, it would help greatly if they understood commercial electricity rates. One reason for this is that the deals and tariffs being offered will vary greatly between suppliers so comparing these prices is not quite so straightforward. Among the reasons for this, is that there are more business electricity plans and deals available than there are for our homes. This means that firms will need to spend time understanding which electricity plan will be right for them including the costs involved which will be influenced by the firm’s size, its location and type of industry they are in. Get a commercial electricity quote An effective way of working out the current market rate for a firm is to get a commercial electricity quote from several potential suppliers; this can be done easily on comparison websites. This may be a time-consuming process but it will give you as the business owner a chance to see how much you may be overpaying for your business electricity needs. The comparison websites will also highlight another issue in providing a like-for-like electricity quote since the supplier will need to provide a bespoke offering to meet the firm’s needs. Again, this will take up more of your time which could be better spent running the business and also helps explain why around 40% of firms have never switched electricity suppliers, according to the government’s figures. Finding cheaper electric prices for a business Finding cheaper electric prices for a business can be done quickly and easily and that is to speak with experts who understand how the market works and who will have the best offers. This will mean speaking with the helpful team D-Energi who have details of the entire market, unlike most comparison websites, and will have the latest deals available. They will, with a few details from you, be able to ascertain what your firm’s needs are and then tailor an offering to meet these. The end result will be lower electric prices than you are currently paying. For many firms, this will lead to big savings ranging from several hundred pounds to several thousands of pounds – depending on the size and type of your business.   For more help and advice when it comes to understanding commercial electricity rates, then speak with the D-Energi team.

Why You Need To Compare Business Gas Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
The best reason for a firm to compare business gas prices is to ensure you and your business are not paying more than is necessary. Energy costs are a huge part of a firm’s overheads but there are steps that can be taken to reduce these outgoings. However, most people running a business are too busy to check on a regular basis what the latest business gas prices are – and how to undertake a switchover to a new supplier. There is help and advice at hand with the expertise from D-Energi to help you find cheaper gas suppliers. Sourcing a cheaper commercial gas quote Unfortunately, there is still a sizeable number of organisations that haven’t got round to switching suppliers by sourcing a cheaper commercial gas quote. That’s a shame since the government has calculated that around 40% of firms in UK have never switched to a cheaper business gas supplier – this also means they are probably paying more than they need to for their gas supply. Indeed, many of these firms will have been rolled over automatically to a new deal that’s not necessarily the cheapest business gas tariff that is currently available. By making a quick call to the helpful team at D-Energi, you could save a substantial amount of money on your gas bill. Find the cheapest gas tariff for business Despite the amount of information available online, you will still need to research to find the cheapest gas tariff for business but be aware that a like-for-like comparison is difficult to make. That’s because gas suppliers must create a bespoke offering for their clients to meet their needs and suppliers work to different criteria. There are a number of reasons why a bespoke deal will be offered and that is because gas prices fluctuate on a regular basis and are impacted by a range of issues including global and economic events. However, it is possible to lock into a long-term deal at cheaper rates than a firm may be paying currently and it’s also easy to switch business gas supplier without any loss of supply during the process. If you run your own business and want to switch business gas supply but don’t have the time to carry out the research or find it too confusing then there is help at hand.   It will be time well spent to speak with the D-Energi to learn more about why you need to compare business gas prices to not only lower overheads but boost profitability and ensure you aren’t spending more than you need to on your energy bills.

Enjoy Cheap Business Gas and Electric Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
The question of how a firm can enjoy cheap business gas and electric bills must also tackle the reason why many firms do not make the effort to do so. The UK’s Competition and Mergers Authority has revealed that around 40% of firms have never switched energy suppliers in the last five years. The consequence of this inactivity means they are likely to be paying more than they need to for their energy supply. The process for switching is straightforward and seamless and with growing numbers of energy suppliers in the marketplace means it is easy to find better deals. Find a cheap business gas supplier For instance, a firm may be looking to find a cheap business gas supplier because their contract may be up for renewal and this is the only opportunity they have to shop around. It’s important to appreciate that firms cannot switch while mid-contract and must instead wait until their renewal notice arrives. This is when their current supplier will tell them what their energy costs will be for the coming year. It is also the ideal time for firms to shop around to find a new supplier offering a better deal. In most cases, the proposed contract will not be the cheapest of the offers available. Using online comparison websites for business energy Indeed, this will become quickly apparent when firms begin using online comparison websites for business energy quotes because the potential suppliers will give an indication of the current market rates. It’s important to appreciate that the prices being quoted on the site may not be exactly what the firm enjoys since the supplier will need to tailor their offering to meet the firm’s needs. This is why business suppliers do not publish tariffs for businesses on their website because they must offer a bespoke deal. Also, some firms may worry that their energy supply will be disrupted but this will not happen and some may believe that the process of switching is simply too much hassle. Instead of thinking like this, firms should appreciate that while it does take time and effort to switch energy suppliers, the rewards more than make up for this. By enjoying much lower energy prices, a firm will also substantially reduce its overheads and boost profitability at the same time.   That makes switching an attractive undertaking for business reasons for those who want to enjoy cheap business gas and electric deals – so it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi to find out more.
