by Simon Thompson
 
Most firms will regularly undertake an exercise to examine their overheads to see where savings can be made this could see your business enjoy lower business gas prices as a result. The process may also mean that a business owner will need to consider whether they should switch to a new business gas supplier. Gas prices fluctuate on a regular basis and are subject to a number of factors, so there is no good or bad time to switch gas suppliers. The best time to look at whether there may be a cheaper deal on offer is when your supplier gets in touch with the next contract details as this opens a window of opportunity. Business gas suppliers UK There’s a lot of competition among business gas suppliers UK to attract you as a customer and there’s also a wide range of prices and offerings. Understanding how a deal is put together and whether it’s available for you is crucial in finding a cheaper and better tariff. In addition, some suppliers may offer other benefits such as an energy consultancy to help you reduce your levels of gas consumption and enjoy bigger savings. Some suppliers may also offer a dedicated account manager, for example, or offer a discount if you pay by direct debit.

Find A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 
Businesses and organisations could save money by paying less for their energy being used every day, which means that finding a cheaper business electricity supplier is key. This also means that there will need to be a process in place to compare energy quotes effectively between providers to ensure that you get a better deal for your firm’s electricity supply. There are a number of issues to consider when comparing business electricity bills and these may include the size of your business since some providers specialise in business sizes. Also, if your firm is a large consumer of electricity and you have half hourly meters installed, then you will need help with the procurement process in dealing with this specialist part of the energy supply marketplace. Business electricity rates The business electricity rates being quoted will also vary depending on your geographic location, as some areas are more expensive than others. Also, how many employees you have, whether you want to expand or move premises over the contract’s duration and the industry you work in also have an influence. The new provider will need to know how much electricity you are using every year and should yours be a new business, then a provider can help estimate what your potential usage will be for that contract. The supplier will also want to know whether you have peak periods of electricity demand, for example in the early hours of the morning or late at night, which may lead to cheaper rates. There are also suppliers available who offer energy consultancies to help your business reduce its electricity consumption, which will not only reduce your bills even further but also boost your firm’s environmental credentials. Business electricity contracts There is a range of business electricity contracts available and they will be fixed, so you could sign up for up to five years or they could be flexible. With a fixed contract you will know how much your electricity bills are likely to be because the unit rate will not increase. It also means that the unit rate will not decrease, which will be an expensive option should prices fall over the contract’s duration. The most important part of finding a cheaper electricity supplier is to compare the quotes from a range of providers, which is where the D-Energi experts can help because they can scour the entire market on your behalf to find the best deals and tariffs available and then help with the switchover process.

6 Tips to Compare Business Energy Tariffs

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for tips to compare business energy tariffs before making the move to a new provider, then this article will help. The first tip is perhaps the most important one, and it is: When your new provider gets in touch with details of your renewal contract, you may find that the rates are much higher than those being offered by competitors. The second tip is to act. Failing to act when your new provider tells you what your new tariff will be may see you being moved automatically to a new contract with higher tariffs. The third tip from the experts at D-Energi for finding a new supplier is: Have your information to hand. A new supplier will need to know how much energy your firm is consuming and if you have more than one location, you’ll need information on these locations too. Most information will be found on a recent bill and you really should have the meter number so a supplier will know where your exact location is so you can compare business electricity and gas deals. The fourth tip is to be aware of what influences the tariff. Not all business owners will appreciate that the tariffs being quoted will vary between suppliers based on a range of criteria. Among these will be the size of your business and how much energy you consume, how many employees you have and your regional location. The fifth tip is to use experts when sourcing your new energy contract. Depending on the size of your business, it’s worth speaking with D-Energi who can explain the new contract from a supplier and if it will be better for your business and how the tariffs have been calculated. They can also take care of the switchover process. The sixth tip is to sign up with D-Energi.
