Steps to Undertake a Business Energy Comparison Exercise

by Simon Thompson
 
When a business needs to undertake a business energy comparison exercise, there are simple steps to take to ensure it’s a successful venture. All firms and organisations should look at their overheads on a regular basis to ensure they never pay more than they should be doing for things like their energy bills. However, before beginning a comparison exercise, you’ll need to consider several issues to ensure that you are armed with the correct information. It’s important that you have recent bills as these will have contained important details for the new supplier to deliver a bespoke offering. Carry out a business electricity comparison exercise Other issues for those who want to carry out a business electricity comparison exercise, for example, will be the size of their business and how much energy they use. These issues also include the size of your office or factory space, as well as the annual turnover because some electricity providers may specialise in your business sector. Also, your bills will tell a new supplier how much electricity you currently use and it is also useful to know how long you will be remaining in your premises and whether you want a short- or long-term contract. The other issue is when you use electricity because switching to off-peak periods of demand could see your bills being substantially reduced. Carry out a business gas comparison between providers These tips also extend to those firms wanting to carry out a business gas comparison between providers to ensure they are on the best deal possible. While firms could contact gas providers directly, this can be a time-consuming exercise and they could also opt to use one of the many online business energy comparison sites. There’s no doubt these websites offer a quick way of finding the market rate for your business but they may not search the entire marketplace so your firm could be missing out on better and cheaper deals. The business energy supply market is a dynamic one and deals and offers change on a daily basis to reflect the changes in wholesale prices so a firm may find a great deal one day and then discover it’s no longer available on the next day. For more help and advice about the steps you need to undertake for a business energy comparison exercise that delivers great savings is to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How to Source Business Gas Prices Per kWh

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s important that companies look at their running costs on a regular basis and one effective way of reducing outgoings is to understand business gas prices per kWh (kilowatt hour). While gas is a secondary fuel source for most firms, there is a lot of competition in the market which means finding a cheaper supplier is straightforward. However, by doing so it’s important that firms understand how their bills are put together which means understanding gas prices per kWh. There’s a lot to recommend switching providers on a regular basis, usually when your current supplier gets in touch with details of your next year’s prices because firms run the risk of paying more than is necessary. One reason for this is that their energy provider may move them onto a new contract automatically which have ‘deemed’ rates and these tend to be dearer. Compare business electricity prices per kWh As with most things in life, it usually pays to shop around and this also extends to those who want cheaper energy bills and they too will need to understand how to compare business electricity prices per kWh. As with the supply of business gas, the location of your business and industry will have an influence on the prices being quoted from a potential new provider. You will need recent gas and electricity bills to hand when shopping around new suppliers as most of the information they will need will be contained in them. One of the items will be the current price you pay per kWh for gas and electricity, though this should not be considered in isolation. That’s because you should also take into account the standing charge that a potential new supplier may quote since they may offer a cheaper price per kWh for energy but a much higher standing charge than the current provider, so you end up paying more for your energy use. Business electricity prices per kWh between providers If we looked at business electricity prices per kWh between providers, we may see a big variation in the terms being offered. However, if you restrict your search to one of the ‘Big Six’ energy firms, then you may find that their offers are fairly similar and so may decide not to switch provider. There are big savings to be made, potentially, even for small businesses but it will take time and effort to find a new supplier but it will be financially worthwhile – you can do this in just a few minutes. If you are looking for information on how to source business gas prices per kWh, or indeed electricity prices, then you should speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How to Find Cheaper Business Gas Rates Easily

by Simon Thompson
 
If you believe you are paying over the odds for your firm’s gas and want to find cheaper business gas rates easily then this article will help. There is no reason to be paying more than you should be for your gas use but many business owners are very busy and don’t have the time to shop around individual suppliers. While they could contact a supplier directly, they may restrict their search to the ‘Big Six’ and find that their offers are fairly similar and decide it’s not worth the time and hassle to switch to a new provider. Since around 40% of firms in the UK, a government survey has revealed, have never switched their energy supplier means that many firms are probably paying more than they should be doing for their gas prices. Switching to a cheaper business gas supplier And since the savings can be substantial, it helps that switching to a cheaper business gas supplier is straightforward. Indeed, there is no loss of gas supply to your premises when this process is undertaken and the supplier may offer other attractive benefits such as a consultancy to help your firm use less gas and boost your savings even further. It’s also possible that if you believe business gas prices are going to rise in the short-term, that you can secure cheap gas prices for several years, which will help with cash flow planning. There’s no doubt that predicting future gas prices can be difficult since the prices are affected by a range of events including international conflicts and demand for gas. Accessing a cheaper business gas bill For those interested in accessing a cheaper business gas bill, then you can do so by using a comparison site for this purpose or speak to a member of the D-Energi team who will be able to search the market to find a cheaper supplier. Of those who want to use a comparison service, then you should check beforehand how many suppliers they are searching because there may be cheaper and better providers available who will not be asked to quote. This means there could be bigger savings to be enjoyed by searching a wider range of providers. Also, when using a comparison service for business gas suppliers, you will still need to speak with the recommended provider because they must offer a bespoke quote that will meet your needs. For more help and information about determining whether your business energy quote is the cheapest available, and if it isn’t then getting help to find one that will be, you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Try D-Energi for Your Next Commercial Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
In the drive to reduce overheads, firms should be looking to find a cheaper commercial electricity quote and this is where D-Energi can help. The best time for sourcing a new quote is when your current electricity provider gets in touch with their next contract details but the process to find a new supplier is different to the one for supplying our homes. The big difference is that the supplier must offer a bespoke deal that meets your needs so there will be no chance of accepting an offer without speaking to the supplier first. And if you run a larger enterprise, then you may be charged a half hourly rate for the electricity you use. Sourcing new commercial electricity rates However, the biggest reason for sourcing new commercial electricity rates is if your firm or organisation has not switched providers in recent years. You won’t be alone in this regard since a survey published by the Government highlights that around 40% of firms have never switched but this could be a costly mistake since your provider may have moved you on to ‘deemed’ rates, which tend to be dearer. While searching for a new energy supplier can be a time-consuming process, and one that is often confusing, with help from experts who understand how the market works, it can be straightforward. Indeed, switching to a better and cheaper electricity deal is easy and simply takes a quick phone call with one of the D-Energi team and they will be able to search the entire marketplace to compare various tariffs and find a deal that will suit your needs. Cheaper electric prices for your business Also, you could use an online comparison site in the search for cheaper electric prices for your business and this is a quick exercise to highlight what the potential market rate for your business is. Alternatively, you could contact business electricity suppliers directly, give them your details and then see what they have to offer you. It’s also important that you don’t restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers because if you are contacting providers directly they may offer similar deals and you may believe there are no real big savings to be made and so don’t bother switching. This is a mistake because there is a lot of competition in the marketplace currently with deals and tariffs changing daily – unless you search for a new provider your business won’t know what these deals are and you will not reduce your overheads. If you want to know more about finding a cheaper commercial electricity quote then contact the experts at D-Energi.
