Why You Need to Understand Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
While it may not have occurred to a business owner previously, there are good reasons why you should understand half hourly electricity prices. If you are a big user of electricity then you will need to appreciate that your energy usage is being monitored and the data is sent to the provider every 30 minutes, hence the term half hour electricity – or HH. This is because your meter will have been replaced in recent years for this sending of data to take place but there are lots of positives for all businesses and organisations to take advantage of the data. Indeed, there are software packages available that will analyse the information to see where and when you are using electricity and whether it is possible to switch to a cheaper, off-peak rate. Searching for new half hourly electricity suppliers It may be that when searching for new half hourly electricity suppliers you will find one that offers a consultancy service. An energy consultant will also look at the figures to see where savings can be made, or whether you could be on a better deal. In addition, they may introduce ways of using less energy, for example, switching to new equipment that uses less energy but the overall aim is for your firm or organisation to use less electricity so your savings are not only enhanced but for the long term. Not only will this help the reduction of your overheads but also help our environment because you’ll be using less electricity as a result. Switching half-hourly electricity providers There’s a lot to recommend switching half hourly electricity providers and a new supplier can also examine the data that your meter is supplying to ensure that the deal they offer is the one most suitable for your needs. The best time to switch electricity providers is when your current supplier gets in touch to inform you of what your next year’s bills will cost. When this happens it opens a window of opportunity that you should take advantage of to search the marketplace. So, while you could contact electricity providers directly or use an online comparison website there is an easy way to access a cheaper supplier and use the data that your firm has provided with your half hourly electricity meter. That’s to contact the friendly D-Energi team who will help you understand half-hourly electricity prices and suppliers to lower your overheads and boost profitability.

Change Your Business Electricity Supplier to Save

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s important that all firms and organisations look at their overheads to help reduce their running costs but you can change your business electricity supplier to save large amounts every year. That’s because your firm should regularly search the marketplace to find a cheaper electricity provider and ensure that your business never pays more than it should be doing for your electricity needs. And most firms and organisations will be needing electricity to carry out their everyday duties, so it’s an important resource to have and you should be reassured that the switchover process is not only seamless but there’s no loss of supply when you decide to switch suppliers. There is peace of mind because the process and the business energy supply market is monitored by Ofgem to ensure that everything works as it should do. Source cheaper business electricity rates The best time to source cheaper business electricity rates is when your current provider gets in touch to inform you how much your next year’s contract will be. This then opens up a window for you to search the marketplace to see whether you could save a lot of money by switching providers or whether you should remain with your current provider. It is highly likely that the team of experts at D-Energi will be able to find a cheaper and better provider in just a few minutes after taking a few details from you. You could also find what the market rates are for a business of your type and size, and where you are located, by using a comparison website for this purpose. These are a popular way to source a new energy provider but they may not be searching the whole of the supplier marketplace and you will still need to speak directly to the supplier highlighted to have a bespoke deal delivered. Sourcing a quality business electricity provider Sourcing a quality business electricity provider is an important exercise and firms should not restrict their search of the marketplace to the ‘Big Six’ suppliers since there’s lots of competition and better deals from smaller providers. By not searching the whole of the marketplace, these deals may go unnoticed and the potential for bigger savings on your business electricity bill will not be delivered. In addition, a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered to switch their energy supplier so they are probably paying more than is necessary for their electricity provision. That’s a shame when the process to find a new supplier takes just a few minutes and there’s no loss of supply when switching. If you and your business or organisation would like to know more about how you can change your business electricity supplier to save on your overheads, then it’s time to contact the D-Energi team.

How to Source Lower Business Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
For all firms and organisations wanting to know how they can source lower business energy prices then this article will help point you in the right direction. However, it’s important to appreciate that the team of experts at D-Energi, with just a few details and in a few minutes, can find cheaper business energy prices than you currently enjoy. Or, you could contact business energy providers directly and negotiate with them in a bid to find lower bills but this can be a time-consuming undertaking and there’s no guarantee you will find a cheaper provider. Indeed, one government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never switched business energy suppliers so they are likely to be paying more than is necessary on energy bills; by spending just a few minutes you could make substantial savings on your overheads. Search for a new business energy supplier This search for a new business energy supplier can be as complicated as you want to make it and you could use an online comparison site to find a new supplier. These sites will help provide an insight into what the current market rates at for your firm’s supply of business energy will be though there are issues around your location, the industry you are in and how much energy you use. Larger energy uses can negotiate better terms. However, these comparison sites may not search all of the potential business energy suppliers so you could be missing out on better and cheaper deals. You will also need to contact the business energy supplier highlighted by the comparison site and negotiate directly with them because they must offer you a bespoke deal that will meet your needs. If you are looking for gas and electricity providers separately, then you’ll need to speak to them separately as well. Switching to a new business energy provider Switching to a new business energy provider is a straightforward process and there’s no loss of supply when you begin this undertaking. The market is still monitored by Ofgem to ensure that deals are honoured and supply is uninterrupted. This process to find a new business energy supplier will take just a few minutes and should be done every year by all firms and organisations to help create competition between providers which will help deliver lower prices. For those firms who may be wary about using smaller business energy providers, they need to appreciate that if they restrict their search of the marketplace to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers then there may not be substantial savings to be made because they may have similar prices. That would be a shame because a smaller energy firm may offer other add-ons including a consultancy to help deliver big savings on how much energy you are using because they will help you use less of it. This, in turn, will deliver big savings over the long-term. If you want to know more about how you can source lower business energy prices and speak to a team of experts who understand how the market works, then contact D-Energi today.
