Why P272 Legislation Helps Your Business Save Money

by Simon Thompson
 
There are a number of reasons why the P272 legislation will help your business save money and the first is down to accurate billing. Essentially, P272 refers to the advanced meters where your firm’s use of electricity is monitored and sent to the supplier every half hour. These meters are also known as HH or half hourly meters. P272 only affects those meters with a profile class of 05, 06, 07 and also 08 so check the label on your meter to see whether the legislation affects you. In addition to receiving an accurate bill, there are no more estimated bills for those affected by P272, and there’s also more data for a potential electricity supplier to use. The biggest bonus under P272 This is possibly the biggest bonus under P272 to help firms reduce their bills because a potential supplier will see when your peak periods of demand are and offer a deal on these figures. In addition, they may even offer a better deal if you’re consumption can be switched to an off-peak period of demand. Essentially, P272 enables a supplier and a potential supplier to understand more accurately how your business is using electricity and whether any energy efficiency measures could be introduced. By doing so, your energy bills will be reduced even further. Another issue to bear in mind with P272 is that there is a potential cost for the relevant Distribution Network Operator (DNO) who will be able to offer an accurate charge for delivery energy. Firms will have their P272 meter upgraded Most firms will have their P272 meter upgraded already with no interruption to how their business operates and some may also have seen their bills increase. If your firm has seen its electricity bills rise then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team to see whether there are cheaper electricity suppliers for your business available. The potential supplier will be able to use your P272 data to help them offer a more suitable tariff to best meet your needs. Also, if your firm is on a fixed price energy plan then you probably haven’t seen any changes to your bills. You may notice a big difference when you’re energy plan is reviewed or renewed next time around. At this point, you should contact D-Energi to see if this really is the best possible deal for your business.   For more help about how P272 legislation affects your business or organisation, then it is time to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

How You Can Find the Best Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson
 
Why should your business be paying more to use the same energy when you could find a better cheap business energy deal with a new supplier? There is no reason why not and according to one survey from the Competition and Mergers Authority, around 40% of firms have never bothered switching suppliers. That’s unfortunate because they are probably paying more than they need to for their business energy supply because their supplier will automatically roll them over onto a new contract, it’s known as a deemed contract, and these are generally more expensive. It’s also important to understand that a business can only switch business energy providers during a window of opportunity but if you have been rolled over onto a deemed contract then you will be able to switch at any point. Firms looking to source cheap business electricity deals There’s no doubt for firms looking to source cheap business electricity deals that the market is a competitive one because growing numbers of firms and organisations are taking the time and effort to switch providers. With growing competition means that prices are lowered as result. It’s also possible to lock into a new contract for two or three and even five years which will help those firms protect themselves against future energy price rises and help their cash flow forecasts as well. The other incentive for lowering overheads, and energy bills are the substantial part of business activities, means profitability will also be boosted. Another incentive for firms looking to switch electricity providers for their business means this is an opportunity to look into the potential of a green energy supplier since they will source their supply from environmentally friendly suppliers such as solar energy providers. This is attractive for growing numbers of firms. Easily switch to a cheap business gas provider In addition to electricity, it’s also possible to easily switch to a cheap business gas provider to help lower your bills even further. It’s also important to appreciate that while we can access a dual fuel deal for our homes, that is the same supplier providing the gas and electricity, this is not possible for a business. That’s because the supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal though you can use the same supplier for both but negotiate separate contracts. There’s lot to recommend the searching of the market for a new business gas and electricity provider and it’s not just about lowering bills; this is also great opportunity to find a supplier who may offer other things such as a consultancy to help your business lower your energy consumption levels which would bring down your bills even further. It’s also important to understand that when switching energy provider there is no loss of supply to your premises and the process itself is seamless and can be undertaken by the D-Energi team.   For more help and advice about how you can find the best cheap business energy deals, then speak with the friendly D-Energi team today.

Your Business Can Save with an Energy Switch

by Simon Thompson
 
If your business could benefit with cheaper business gas and electricity deals then you need to consider an energy switch. If you contact D-Energi team the process to find a cheaper deal will take just a few minutes and the process of switching energy suppliers can be done in a few easy steps. The savings to be made can be huge, even a single person business can save several hundred pounds every year depending on the business they are in and levels of energy use. Obviously, larger firms will save much, much more. So, if you are looking to save on your commercial energy costs then it will pay to have experts do the legwork for you but you can research the market to find out how much you could save by switching. Process to switch energy suppliers The process to switch energy suppliers is straightforward and it begins with finding a deal or tariff that best meets your business needs. This is also easy to do and you can contact a supplier directly and ask for a quote or use an online comparison website. While the website may give an insight into what the market rates for your business will be, you need to bear in mind that the comparison site may not be searching the entire market. This means that there are smaller suppliers that may be available with much cheaper prices and a better offering, and this may include, for instance, a consultancy service to help you lower your energy bills even further. Using an online comparison website to switch energy providers Also, when using an online comparison website to switch energy providers, you will still need to speak with the supplier directly because they must offer you a bespoke quote that best meets your needs. Again, this does sound like a time-consuming exercise but not enough firms have been undertaking this work every year to lower their overheads. According to a survey by the Competition and Mergers Authority, around 40% of firms have never switched suppliers which means they are likely to be paying more than they need to for their energy needs. By speaking with the friendly D-Energi team you will find out in just a few minutes how much you could save by switching your business energy supplier. The team just needs a few pieces of information, most of which will be found on your latest business gas or electricity bill. It’s also important to understand that if you’re looking for gas and electricity suppliers that you cannot access a dual fuel deal for business, as you can for your home, and you’ll need to speak with each supplier separately.   Again, the D-Energi team will be able to explain more and help you find the best deal to make an energy switch a worthwhile and rewarding exercise.

How to Switch Business Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
It may have been a long time since your business looked at your energy overheads but it is easy to switch business energy suppliers and enjoy lower bills. Indeed, your business may never have looked at switching previously and you’ll be among the 40% of firms that a government survey revealed had never switched energy suppliers. However, the government is keen for increasing competition in the marketplace which will lead to lower bills so all firms should be looking every year to see whether they can get a better deal for their energy supply elsewhere. The easiest and simplest way to find low prices and undertake the switchover process is to speak with the D-Energi team who can do this in a few minutes. Alternatively, you could search the marketplace for yourself. Switching business electricity suppliers The first issue that will become apparent should you undertake a search is that switching business electricity suppliers is not quite as straightforward as it is for our homes. The first problem is that it is more difficult to carry out a like-for-like comparison between potential suppliers since they must offer a bespoke deal that will meet your business needs. The other issue is that you may have been rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract and until you research the marketplace you may not be aware just how much more you are paying for your energy needs than you should be doing. That’s not the fault of your energy supplier since they may have contacted you before the rollover contract started. They are also under no obligation to offer their best rates on their deemed contract. Switching business gas suppliers While this does sound to be rather unfair, the same situation applies when switching business gas suppliers. Again, their contracts come up for renewal every year and all firms and organisations should check the marketplace to ensure they are on the best possible deal. And, let’s face facts, it is possible for even a small firm to save hundreds of pounds by switching while larger firms can save thousands of pounds within minutes. However, it is also important that you cannot switch suppliers in the middle of a contract without paying a penalty and you should switch during a window of opportunity. You could sign up with a new supplier for between one and three years at lower rates. By doing this you will be helping your future cash flow forecasts because you will know what your energy bills are likely to be. With energy costs set to continue rising, this is an effective way for a business to save money.   So, if you want to know how to switch business energy suppliers to enjoy lower energy bills, then it’s time to contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will find a deal to suit you and your business needs.
