Why Your Firm Needs to Compare Business Gas and Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
All firms will be looking at their running costs on a regular basis which means they should compare business gas and electricity prices whenever their contracts are due for renewal. Since all firms and organisations will be using energy for their everyday needs, this could be an essential and easy way to save on overheads. While we can all use energy-saving light bulbs, switch off computer equipment and even boil less water for cups of tea, sometimes we need to reduce bills substantially. Depending on the size of the organisation, there are big savings to be made by simply switching your business energy supplier. For example, even small operations can save hundreds of pounds every year while larger enterprises could save many thousands of pounds. Looking to compare business energy providers It is important to appreciate when looking to compare business energy providers that no two organisations will have the same energy needs. It’s for this reason that an energy supplier will need to offer a bespoke quote for your own firm. It makes sense for them to do so since firms of differing sizes will have different energy needs and there is a range of tariffs for meeting the needs of large, medium as well as small businesses. In addition, a potential new supplier may offer other perks such as an energy consultancy to help your firm lower their bills even more or they may offer a dedicated account manager. Looking to compare business electricity and gas suppliers So, when looking to compare business electricity and gas suppliers, it will soon become apparent that there are big price differences between them but it’s important that you have an energy tariff that meets the needs of your business. Not all business energy offerings will do this and the exercise for finding a new gas and electricity supplier will need to be carried out for each energy type since it is not possible to have a dual fuel deal like we can get for our homes. The process to find a new business energy supplier can be straightforward and quick; you may have to wait until your current supplier sends a letter stating what your new contract terms will be. This is a great prompt to shop around to find out what the market rate is for a business like yours and then look into switching suppliers. It’s important also to appreciate that the switchover process is seamless and there’s no loss of energy to your premises when this occurs.   If you have any questions about why your firm needs to compare business gas and electricity prices, then it will pay to speak with the experts D-Energi who will be able to answer all of your queries.

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.

by Simon Thompson

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.
