Switch to a cheap business gas and electric supplier and save

by Simon Thompson
 
The process of finding a cheap business gas and electric supplier is relatively straightforward so a business can compare energy quotes and find the best deal for their needs. All businesses will have energy bills to pay and unless they look at comparing various offers and deals regularly, they may not appreciate just how much more they are paying for their energy than they need to. Essentially, the aim of looking to switch business energy supplier is to find a fairer and better deal for the business. No one wants to pay more than they need to for their energy usage but some businesses will believe that the process of switching energy supplier is complicated and time-consuming and they may lose a constant supply of energy. The process of switching energy supplier There are two points to bear in mind and they are that the process of switching energy supplier is not complicated and it’s not time consuming but it is very straightforward. In addition, the switchover between energy suppliers is smooth and seamless so they will not lose a supply of energy to their business. It’s also worth bearing in mind that a business should use the services of experts in the field which would mean, for instance, contacting D-Energi to find the best deals available for the business. That’s because there’s a wide variety of business energy suppliers available and they offer a range of tariffs and deals depending on the business’s energy needs and when they will be using that energy. Compare prices and tariffs for a cheap business gas supplier quickly So the experts will be able to compare prices and tariffs for a cheap business gas supplier, for instance, quickly and effectively and also arrange for the switchover to take place and resolve any potential issues with the current supplier. They can also help set up the contract. Businesses will also need to appreciate that a business energy supplier will be looking to offer separate tariffs for gas and electricity use and the process of comparing prices and tariffs is an opportunity for reducing those bills. It helps too that under regulations brought in by the energy watchdog Ofgem, businesses will be informed before their current contract ends that their price for energy will probably be increasing but the supplier must also tell the business what their competitors are offering. This is a great nudge for those businesses to explore further what the better tariffs may offer them which is where the helpful team at D-Energi can offer help for a business looking to switch to a cheap business gas and electric supplier.

How to compare business energy offerings

by Simon Thompson
 
To help boost business efficiencies it is always a good idea to compare business energy offerings but how does an organisation find the best one? There’s no doubt that this can be a daunting process with so many firms offering a wide range of energy tariffs to attract a business as their customer. Most businesses in the UK will be relying on their energy supply in order to operate effectively and if that energy supply was stopped for some reason then it would have a big impact on how they can trade. For this reason alone, business owners and organisations should be engaged in what their business energy contract offers and what’s available on the market. Compare business electricity and gas quotes This will mean having to compare business electricity and gas quotes to find a better tariff so the business is not paying more than they need to for their business energy supply needs. Perhaps the best approach is to utilise the experience and expertise of a firm that offers a way to find the best possible deal from the widest range of suppliers. That would mean approaching an organisation such as D-Energi which looks at the entire market and not just the ‘big six’ business energy suppliers. Another important aspect to appreciate is for the business looking to switch energy suppliers is that there’s a big difference between sourcing a supplier for a domestic supply and business energy suppliers. Should someone look for a new energy supply for their home then they can pick a variety of defined energy tariffs to easily find the cheapest offer available. The big difference for the business energy supply market is that energy suppliers tend to offer bespoke energy quotes because businesses have different uses for energy and at different times. When a business wants to compare business gas and electricity tariffs This also means that when a business wants to compare business gas and electricity tariffs for a new contract they may have to secure their business electricity and gas needs separately since suppliers tend not to bundle these together as a package. Again, this is another good reason for using a firm that understands both the electricity and gas market for a business to find the best tariff. It also needs to be appreciated too that the business energy supply market operates on strict terms that they do not for domestic supply so it’s more difficult to switch supplier during a contract term though it is easier today than it used to be. That’s because Ofgem brought in rules that makes a business energy supplier tell their customer around 60 days before a contract ends what they will be pay under a new contract and, more importantly, what the terms of their rivals will be as well.

What P272 means for your business energy needs

by Simon Thompson
 
It does sound rather unnerving but P272 is a crucial change to the business energy market brought in by Ofgem, the energy watchdog, in October 2014. Essentially, the rule stipulates that all electricity meters used by a business must migrate to the ‘Half Hourly’ market. There are a number of reasons for this and all business sites in the UK must now use automated accredited metres that will send their usage data every half-hour to the energy supplier. The idea behind it is that the bills can be calculated more accurately. Original timescale for P272 The original timescale for P272 was for it to be promoted in April 2016 but this was brought forward for some organisations and delayed for others so they can switch electricity meters in time. The business meter energy switch affected more than 160,000 sites which are described as being medium energy users and they had to appoint data collectors as well as meter operators before the deadline was reached. These collectors and operators are put in place to run and maintain the meters and send the readings to the energy supplier. When we mentioned that the deadline for some meters to be installed was delayed it is crucial that all organisations check to see when they are affected since some will need to have the new meters in place by April 2017. Those firms with AMR meters will find the switchover can be done remotely without anyone having to visit the site. Electricity meter in the Profile Class 05-08 will be effected Organisations with their electricity meter in the Profile Class 05-08 will be effected and will switch from non-Half Hourly (NHH) to Half Hourly (HH) meters. It should also be noted that firms with meters in the Profile Class 03-04 will also, Ofgem says, also be moving to HH meters at some point. One of the big positives for the introduction of half hourly meters is that businesses will then have a better idea of their energy consumption and have the information to hand that makes it easy to get cheaper energy for the business needs from another supplier. Indeed, some organisations will find a tariff that offers lower energy prices but also a tariff that will use energy when it’s less expensive to do so. Not every business is affected by the P272 change and so organisations may already have compliant meters in place but for more help and advice about the situation then contact the helpful team at D-Energi who have the experience and expertise to help an organisation install the correct meters and find lower energy prices.

Finding the best cheap business energy deal

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms and organisations will be looking at their running costs on a regular basis which means there will be a need to research any potential savings which also means finding the best cheap business energy deal available. By opting to switch to a business energy supplier who is charging less for energy means that the firm’s overheads will fall and the profits will rise. That’s a very attractive incentive for a business to take a keen interest in their firm’s energy deal. Finding potential suppliers is easy and straightforward since the Internet will provide all of the relevant information and the potential suppliers available. However, the Internet search will not reveal the best deals available on the day and which supplier will be best suited to the business’s needs and growing demands. Find the best cheap business electricity and gas deals Indeed, to find the best cheap business electricity and gas deals means having to look at the whole market and compare all energy suppliers by comparing their offering with what the business actually uses. Alternatively, the easiest and straightforward way of conducting this exercise is to contact the experienced team at D-Energi and ask them for their advice and help. It’s also important to appreciate that the business will not suffer from any business energy supply interruption during the switching process. There are many reasons why a business or organisation may never switch to a cheaper business energy deal before; they may never have considered it or they may believe the process is too involved and complicated. Finding a new supplier for cheap business gas Under new regulations from the market regulator Ofgem the process for finding a new supplier for cheap business gas and electricity is not only straightforward and easy but the firm’s current energy supplier also has to be helpful and informative. To this end, a current energy supplier must inform their customers around 60 days before their contract ends what their new energy deal is going to be and, more importantly, how that new deal compares with those being offered by their rivals. This information alone should be enough for a business to be prompted into sourcing a new cheap business energy deal particularly if the prices being offered by rivals are substantially lower. That’s a big chunk of money being saved from overheads that could go towards the bottom line instead. For more help and advice for any organisation looking for a better cheap business energy deal then contact the team at D-Energi.
