What You Need to Know to Compare Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are a business owner, then switching energy suppliers offers an opportunity to reduce costs and one way is to compare business energy deals effectively. This will mean searching the marketplace for the deal that best meets your needs and then switching to the new provider. But why compare business electricity prices when you may not have the time for doing so? The main reason is to ensure that you and your business is not paying more than you should be doing for your energy needs, and this exercise should be done every year to avoid being rolled over onto a deemed contract by your current provider which usually have higher rates. Compare business electricity prices When a business owner needs to compare business electricity prices, you could use an online site which saves time because they’ll be using your details to contact a range of suppliers in one go. This means you will not be spending a long time on the phone speaking with individual suppliers plus it’s an easy way to find out what a potential new provider may offer. However, any firm using a comparison site needs to appreciate that they may not be searching all of the potential energy suppliers and you will still need to contact directly the firm that is recommended. That’s because the supplier is obliged to provide a bespoke quote that will meet your needs. Compare business gas quotes Busy business owners could also use these comparison sites to compare business gas quotes between providers. As with electricity, the gas provider will need to know where your business is located, how many people you employ and the industry you operate in. In addition, they will need to know your meter number so they will have the exact location of your premises; it may also help to have a recent bill to hand so you can give details of your gas and electricity usage. There’s no doubt that the comparison site offers convenience and will potentially save time in sourcing a new provider, but there’s likely to be cheaper deals available that will better meet your firm’s needs. In order to find these and compare business energy deals effectively by experts who understand how the markets operate means speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi.

Advice On Sourcing Cheap Business Electricity Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
One effective way of lowering overheads is to reduce your firm’s energy bills but how do you source the best cheap business electricity deals? The best advice for doing this is to know when your contract endpoint is and then terminate the contract when it’s allowed. The reasons for doing so are twofold: firstly, you will avoid being rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to be much higher than contracts for new customers, and secondly, you will be forced to find a new supplier. It’s always important when checking quotes from suppliers that you don’t just focus on the unit rate per kWh since a potential supplier may offer a low unit cost, but have a high standing charge – so there will be no effective saving. Cheap business gas provider This idea of terminating automatically a deal with a current supplier also extends to those firms and organisations wanting a cheap business gas provider. Again, a business gas quote will have two elements, and you’ll need to focus on the unit charge plus the standing charge to find out what your overall annual cost is likely to be. It is also a good idea to search the business energy market every year to ensure you are on the best deal possible and are not paying more than you should be doing. It may also be a good idea to get a quote from one or more of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers and then find out what another potential supplier can offer. For those firms looking to switch, it’s also a good idea to have your current supplier offer a quote and ask if there are any additional discounts from each supplier you approach. Finding a new cheap business energy provider So far, we haven’t mentioned using one of the online comparison sites for finding a new cheap business energy provider. You could use one of these sites to get an idea of the market rate for your size and type of business, but you need to be aware that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace. The search for cheap business energy deals should also include the efforts from an energy broker who has a wide and deep knowledge of the business energy supply market. As a result, they may find better and cheaper deals for meeting your business needs, so you should use an organisation that has access to the entire marketplace and can then negotiate on your behalf and deal with the switch over process. This will mean speaking with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to answer any questions you have about sourcing cheap business electricity deals.

It doesn’t have to be this way and if you need to know why you need to change your business energy solution provider and save money by doing so, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How to Save when Switching Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
With so many energy providers available, how do you know which one will offer the best deal when switching business energy suppliers to meet your needs? All firms and organisations should carry out a comparison exercise every year, usually when your current provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract. This is a great opportunity to see whether you are being overcharged for your energy needs and whether this is the right time to switch providers and save money. If you speak with the team at D-Energi you will soon find out whether this is a process worth undertaking because they have access to the entire marketplace and should be able to find a cheaper, better deal than you currently enjoy. Search for business electricity suppliers The search for business electricity suppliers is a straightforward one and for those who find a better deal, then you need to be reassured that the switchover process means there is no loss of energy to your business when this is begun. Unfortunately, around 40% of firms in the UK than ever bothered switching, according to a UK government survey, which means they are probably paying more than is necessary for their energy needs. This may just be down to being too busy or complacent because the energy supply market can appear to be complicated and confusing. In addition to the wide range of potential suppliers available, they all offer different services and perks and have a range of tariffs. Sourcing a new electricity provider for a business is more difficult than sourcing one for our home because the provider must offer a bespoke deal that is tailored to meet your needs. Business gas suppliers This need to have a bespoke deal also extends to business gas suppliers when they are asked to quote for your custom. Comparing these bespoke deals on a like-for-like basis becomes difficult because of the different criteria each supplier will have and you may need to understand the unit cost per unit of energy, plus the standing charge and any other costs that may be demanded. You could use an online business energy comparison site to carry out this survey of potential suppliers quickly and gain an understanding of what the market rate for your firm’s needs might be. Potential suppliers will need to consider where you are located, what your energy needs are and how many employees have plus what type of industry you work in before they make an offer. These online sites may not be accessing the entire marketplace and you will still need to speak with a potential supplier directly to ensure their deal will meet your needs. If you would like more help and information about how you can save when switching business energy suppliers, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.
