How to Source A Commercial Electricity Quote to Save Money

by Simon Thompson
 
As the old saying goes, ‘Time is money’, so how does a busy business source a commercial electricity quote to save money? The answer is ‘quite easily’ and this is an exercise that should be undertaken every year and firms can do it for themselves. Or they could contact the experts at D-Energi to save time. It’s a simple process to find a new electricity provider and there’s a lot of competition for new business. That’s because we all need electricity for our everyday needs and some firms may be reluctant to switch providers believing there may be a loss of supply; there’s no reason to fear this since the process is seamless and there’s no loss of electricity supply when it’s undertaken. Also, the best time to source a commercial electricity quote from a new provider is when your current supplier contacts you with your next year’s contract details. This gives an opportunity to find out what other potential providers may offer to supply your premises. Commercial electricity rates for your business Also, when looking for new commercial electricity rates for your business, it may also pay to find a new supplier who will supply several premises and send just one bill to meet your needs. There are lots of new suppliers in the marketplace and you don’t have to restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ energy firms since their quotes tend to be very similar and you may, falsely, believe that you will not be saving that much money when switching. However, by using one of the comparison websites you’ll soon get a good idea for the market rates for your firm’s needs, depending on how much electricity you use, your location and the industry you are in. These comparison sites will quickly search a number of suppliers to find a deal that will meet your needs and you will need to contact the supplier so theirs is a bespoke offering to what your firm is looking for. There is just one word of caution for firms using online comparison sites and that is the fact they may not search the whole market so there may be better deals you will not be aware of. Search for lower electric prices The search for lower electric prices for firms can be carried out very quickly indeed, particularly if you contact the business energy experts at D-Energi who can access the entire market and in just a few minutes find a deal that will meet your needs. In addition, the friendly team can also deal with the switchover process and find a supplier offering other incentives including an energy consultancy which your firm may find useful since the aim is to use less electricity to lower your bills over the long-term.   For help and information about how you can source a commercial electricity quote to reduce your overheads, then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How You Can Find the Cheapest Gas Tariff for Business

by Simon Thompson
 
As a business owner, you may believe that finding the cheapest gas tariff for your firm will be a simple process and it should be. For example, you could simply carry out an Internet search to find potential gas providers and contact them for their best gas deals for your firm’s needs. Alternatively, you could use one of the many business energy comparison websites to find a new supplier and within minutes you will be offered a new deal that will probably beat the one you’re currently on. But is this result too good to be true? The answer is, probably yes. Compare business gas prices between new suppliers That’s because when you want to compare business gas prices between new suppliers you should really search the entire marketplace and some of these comparison sites don’t do this. In addition, even though they may find you a cheaper and better deal, you will still need to contact the recommended supplier directly because they must offer you bespoke terms that meet your firm’s needs. So, while you may be able to access a cheaper deal fairly quickly this may not be the best deal to meet your needs and other new suppliers may offer other attractive services including a consultancy service that will help your firm use less gas and enjoy longer term savings as a result. It may also be that you simply check with the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers and appreciate that there’s not much difference in their offers and believe that it’s not worthwhile making the switch because you want to be saving money. This could be an expensive mistake to make and you should check smaller suppliers as well. Sourcing a commercial gas quote When it comes to sourcing a commercial gas quote that will save you money, a government survey reveals that 40% of firms have never carried out a search to find a new energy supplier. This means they are probably paying more than they should be doing for their energy needs. One reason why all firms should carry out this exercise to find cheaper gas prices for their firm’s needs every year is to help stimulate competition in the marketplace so all firms will benefit as suppliers compete to attract new business. It also needs to be appreciated that the savings that can be made when switching to a new gas supplier can be significant with even a one-man operation enjoying savings of up to 25%; this could be a substantial saving for much larger concerns.   Essentially, if you and your firm are looking to find the cheapest gas tariff available for business then it will pay to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Help Our Environment With A Business Energy Consultancy

by Simon Thompson
 
For any firm considering a business energy consultancy, it’s not just about saving money on your firm’s utility bills but also helping our environment. That’s because the business energy consultant will be able to highlight where savings can be made and by using less energy there will be less carbon dioxide produced which benefits all of us. In addition, an energy consultancy may be necessary for those firms that are looking to make big cost savings and for those who are wanting to keep ahead of future government legislation. There may also be a need for firms who want to be recognised for their energy accreditation, for example, ISO 50001. An independent supplier of energy services However, you don’t have to source an independent supplier of energy services since switching to new utilities provider for your business may offer the service as part of their package. This is one of the reasons why all firms should consider searching the marketplace every year to see whether they can enjoy lower bills and enjoy other attractive benefits as well. For example, some energy providers may offer better levels of customer service, cheaper bills if paying by direct debit and longer-term contracts, which may help some firms wanting to plan their cash flow over the next five years. Not all suppliers will offer terms of five years but many do offer contracts of up to two or three years which may be helpful. However, this may not be such a good deal should energy prices fall during the contract. Using less energy The energy consultancy may not just concern itself with using less energy by introducing new ways of working but also recommend switching to cheaper off-peak tariffs or even investing in new equipment that uses less energy. Their expertise can be used to save money on gas and electricity and also for water. On top of this, there is a growing need for firms to switch to energy that comes from green sources, particularly solar and wind power, and an energy consultant can help facilitate this switch. In a nutshell, the reasons for undertaking an energy consultancy include: Saving money Improving your firm’s energy efficiency Improving your energy governance Complying with legislation Achieving an energy accreditation.   For more help about these issues and to discuss what a business energy consultancy can do for you and to access cheaper utility bills, contact the experts at D-Energi.

How Your Firm Can Find Cheap Business Gas and Electric Providers

by Simon Thompson
 
The steps for your firm to find cheap business gas and electric providers are relatively simple but you need to make sure that you search the entire marketplace when you do so. We need to highlight this because online comparison sites are very popular but they may not be searching the whole market offering so cheaper and better providers may not be found. Obviously, you could contact business gas and electricity suppliers directly to find out what they can offer your firm but this can be a time-consuming and sometimes confusing process in the bid for sourcing lower prices. It also needs to be appreciated that the switchover between business gas and electricity providers is a seamless one with no loss of supply to your premises when this is done. Find a cheap business gas supplier So, if you want to find a cheap business gas supplier you could contact one of the ‘Big Six’ energy firms but you may find that the quotes are similar or you could use a comparison website which should give a fair medication of the market price for your firm’s needs – you can use this information to negotiate directly for a better deal with your current supplier. The best way to find a cheap business gas supplier is to use the D-Energi team who can search the entire marketplace and potentially find a supplier who has other interesting offers such as a consultancy to help you use less gas which not only brings down your bills even further but encourages longer term savings as well. Indeed, with more firms searching the gas supply market for new offers helps encourage competition between suppliers and this should be done every year when your current provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract. This then opens a window of opportunity for your firm to see whether they can enjoy lower gas prices even though it may be from a supplier you have never heard of before but the energy supply market is still regulated by Ofgem to bring peace of mind. Finding a cheap business electricity supplier Also, finding a cheap business electricity supplier is a straightforward process as well and the vast majority of firms in the UK will need electricity for their everyday needs and to function effectively. Not having electricity will be a major setback for most organisations and there are lots of potential suppliers to choose from. As with the supply of gas, a potential supplier may offer other attractive additions including a consultancy which may see an expert looking at how and when you use electricity and recommending switching to cheaper off-peak periods to deliver bigger savings. The savings that can be enjoyed will range depending on the size of your business but even a micro business can potentially save several hundred pounds every year while larger concerns will see their savings in the thousands of pounds bracket.   If you want to know more about how your firm can find cheap business gas and electric providers, find a cheap deal and have someone take care of the switchover process, then it’s time to contact the D-Energi team.
