Your Checklist for A Business Energy Comparison

by Simon Thompson
 
For most busy business owners, undertaking a business energy comparison exercise is a time-consuming distraction. However, this checklist will help achieve this exercise quickly and efficiently. Put simply, the best way to carry out a business energy comparison is to ask the experts at D-Energi to do this on your behalf. They can and will quickly search the entire market to find the best possible deal, but why should you just use them? Business electricity comparison The answer is that, unlike business energy comparison websites, the team can carry out the business electricity comparison for you. The alternative is to use the Internet to find a comparison site, but you should check beforehand how many suppliers they are asking for a quote. It’s likely that they will not be asking every supplier, so there could be better deals available that you will not be asked to consider. In addition, the team at D-Energi have lots of expertise in helping firms access small business electricity prices and can explain the offered contract as well. Carry out a business gas comparison exercise The service also extends to those firms wanting to carry out a business gas comparison exercise to find cheaper a supplier. And while most firms are not spending as much on their gas bill as they are for electricity, it’s still worth spending time and effort in sourcing a new provider and there are two very good reasons for this: Not only will you ensure that you are not overpaying on your energy needs But you will also be helping to stimulate competition in the small business energy supplier marketplace.   Some firms may also be wary about the switchover process but this can be carried out by the team at D-Energi and you will be reassured that there is no loss of supply when you do decide to switch providers. In addition, the team will remind you when your contract is due to run out so they can search for a better and cheaper deal and help move you to the new supplier. Their aim is to help ensure that you never overpay on your firm’s energy needs. If you are a busy business owner looking for a checklist that you can use for a business energy comparison, then you could save time and trouble by simply calling the friendly team at D-Energi first.

Tips to Review a Business Energy Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
It’s one thing sourcing potential deals from energy suppliers, but do you know how to review a business energy quote effectively? The answer is, probably not. But fortunately, there are experts available who do know how to analyse a business energy quote that is being offered and that’s the team at D-Energi. With years of experience in the business energy supply market, the team can look at the contract that is being offered, explain any terms you don’t understand and they can also check whether it really is the best deal available for meeting your needs. That’s because they are able to search the entire marketplace to find a deal that will save you money and they can take care of the switchover process as well. Search for a cheaper business electricity quote The search for a cheaper business electricity quote is something to appreciate if you are restricting your market search to a business energy comparison website. Put simply, you need to check beforehand how many potential energy providers they are asking to quote for meeting your needs and you’ll find that it’s probably not going to be the entire marketplace. So, while a business electricity comparison website is a quick way to find out how much you could save, it’s not the most effective way to find a new supplier. Instead, you should put the D-Energi team to the test because they can search the entire market on your behalf and in just a few minutes find a cheaper, better deal and take care of the switching process. Firms looking for a business gas quote This opportunity also extends to those firms looking for a business gas quote for meeting their needs. And though most firms will be spending a lot less on their gas needs, it’s still worth taking the time and effort in switching to a cheaper deal. That’s because you’ll be reducing your gas and electricity overheads to boost profitability. Plus there’s no reason why any firm in the UK should be paying more than is necessary for their energy. Unfortunately, around 40% of firms have not switched their suppliers in recent years, one Government survey reveals, so it’s likely they are paying a lot more than they should be doing. Don’t let this complacency affect you and your business when profitability is being affected. Instead, you should contact the D-Energi team today to find out how they can help you review a business energy quote to see whether it really is saving you money.

How to Find A Business Gas Supplier Fast

by Simon Thompson
 
If your supply contract is up for renewal in the near future and you need to find a new business gas supplier fast, then this article is for you. Firstly, there’s no need to panic since the market is a competitive one, but it’s crucial that you search all potential suppliers and see which one is offering the best business gas prices per kilowatt hour for meeting your firm’s needs. That might not be the case should you decide to use a business gas comparison website which may only have a restricted number of suppliers to offer a quote and there could be better and cheaper deals available that you will be unaware of. However, these business gas comparison sites do offer a quick way of finding out what the market rate is for your firm’s needs and will give an indication of how much you can save by switching to a new business gas provider. Understanding small business gas rates When it comes to understanding small business gas rates, the experts at D-Energi can help explain why the quotes vary so much – and that’s usually down to the supplier having their own criteria, which will include: The location of your firm The industry that you work in Your annual consumption levels How many people you employ.   There are other issues too, including whether you have plans to expand which will mean increasing your business gas demands over the course of the contract. All of this makes sense and you should not be surprised if a potential gas supplier declines to quote and you should never really compare the prices being offered for your needs with those being offered to a business next door since they may have different criteria for their bespoke deal. Business gas price per kilowatt hour We mentioned that the lowering of the business gas price per kilowatt hour is an important aspect but there’s some detail that you will need to appreciate. This includes: While the business price per unit is for the actual gas consumed and you should look for a lower amount, it’s not the only important price That’s because you need to take into account the standing charge, which pays for gas to be delivered to your premises and since this varies, you need to ensure that this is either lower or the same and not more because this will remove any savings that your firm could potentially make.   If you are simply too busy as a business owner with the day-to-day tasks of running your firm, then it’s helpful there is a friendly team of experts available to discuss your needs, search the market of all competitors and then explain why one particular deal is better than another. For more advice about how you can find a business gas supplier fast, then you should contact the experts at D-Energi today.

How to Find Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
As a large consumer of energy, if you need to find cheap half hourly electricity prices to save on costs, then this article will help. It’s imperative that you begin the search for a new energy provider several months before your contract is due for renewal. That’s because the procurement process for a half-hour electricity supply is more complicated than that for small firms. Also, you need to appreciate that by not renewing your electricity contract may lead to you paying up to 30% more for your out of contract rates. Search for half hourly electricity suppliers The search for half hourly electricity suppliers can be a complicated one, but the market is competitive and it is worth the time and effort switching to a new provider. It helps that the team at D-Energi understand how this half hourly electricity supply market works and you will find that the regulator Ofgem recommends that firms and organisations use an independent broker or third party to help negotiate a deal. The D-Energi team not only has access to the entire market of suppliers, but they can also look at the contract that is offered and help explain its benefits to you. If you are wondering whether your firm or organisation qualifies for the lower half hourly electricity rates, then you will need a half-hour meter installed. This meter will record your energy consumption every 30 minutes and send this data to the provider for up-to-date readings and there will be no more estimated bills. However, only large consumers of energy – that is those with a peak demand of 100 kW – have a mandatory need for these meters to be installed. Negotiating a new half hourly electricity contract There’s a lot to consider when negotiating a new half hourly electricity contract with a provider and it’s here where the expertise of the D-Energi team will help. You’ll need to appreciate that the half hourly contract rates on offer will vary because of wholesale market demands and the supplier may only guarantee the price for 24-hours or so. However, even a small reduction in your current unit price per kilowatt-hour could lead to massive savings overall, depending on your annual consumption levels. There’s also no need to worry about switching to a new provider, there’s no loss of supply should you decide to do so and again there is help available with the paperwork and the process. For more information about how to find half hourly electricity prices that will save you and your business money, then you need to contact the D-Energi team today.
