Should You Change Your Business Energy Supplier?

by Simon Thompson
 
Perhaps you and your firm have never asked the questions before, but should you change your business energy supplier? There is a raft of reasons why this would be a sound move and the main one is the opportunity to enjoy much lower energy bills. While many firms may decide that the process is too time-consuming and a distraction from their everyday activities, it will be time well spent. That’s because there is the potential to save hundreds of pounds if you are a small business, every year and for larger enterprises, the savings could run into thousands of pounds. This, in turn, means your overheads will be substantially reduced and profitability boosted which makes the exercise a worthwhile one to undertake. Find cheap business energy prices with a new supplier The process to find cheap business energy prices with a new supplier is a straightforward one and it needs to be appreciated that there is no loss of supply to your business premises when this process begins – and this too may be an issue preventing some firms from switching. It’s also important to appreciate that while many firms and organisations may prefer to remain with one of the ‘big six’ suppliers, mainly because they have heard of them, there’s a lot to recommend switching to a new firm that will offer lower prices, better levels of customer service and the potential for other extras as well. It’s at this point that firms thinking of switching supplier should appreciate that the market is regulated by Ofgem so switching to a small, or even a new supplier is not the risky move some firms may believe. Also, these newer business electricity providers may offer other attractive benefits including an energy consultancy to help your firm use less energy which will mean that you will save even more on your energy bills. Finding a new business energy provider But how do you go about finding a new business energy provider? The easiest way is to use an online comparison website which will compare the offerings between business suppliers to find a quote that best meets your needs. However, there are two issues to bear in mind: the first is that the website may not be searching the entire marketplace and, secondly, you will still need to speak with the supplier directly because their offering must be bespoke to ensure it will meet your needs. You could also contact potential business energy suppliers directly and while this may be time-consuming it should lead to a better deal.   However, the simplest way of finding a new business energy supplier is to speak with the D-Energi team who will be able to source a new and cheaper deal within a few minutes and answer any questions you may have about the provider and the switchover process as well.

Find Your Cheap Commercial Electricity Quote

by Simon Thompson
 
If you would like to save hundreds or indeed thousands of pounds with a cheap business electricity quote, then it’s time to take action. Sadly, according to a government survey around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched their gas or electricity supplier. This means they are likely to be paying more than they need to for their utility provision. With some simple research and a call to the friendly D-Energi team, it is possible for most firms and organisations to save a substantial amount of money on their overheads. The government is also keen for more firms to switch as this will help stimulate the commercial electricity supply market which, in turn, will boost competition and help lower prices. It should also make suppliers provide better customer service and add-on services such as an energy consultation so their customer can reduce their usage levels and save even more. Comparing commercial electricity rates It’s also worth bearing in mind that when comparing business electricity rates that the market is more competitive, certainly more so than when we are finding an electricity provider for our homes. The result of this competition is that suppliers are keen to attract new business with tempting offers that should undercut your current provider’s rates. There are a number of ways to compare these commercial prices and in addition to contacting D-Energi, you could visit the various websites of these suppliers, offer a few details and find out what the potential deal is for your business. Alternatively, you could use an online comparison site that will look at various providers but because the market changes so frequently you may not be searching the entire market. Review their utility supply for cheap electricity prices Ultimately, every business and organisation should be looking to review their utility supply for cheap electric prices, and also for gas, because not switching suppliers may mean you have been rolled over automatically onto a contract where the rates are higher and this is called a ‘deemed’ contract. The best time to search the marketplace for low electricity prices for a business is when your current supplier contacts you to inform you what your next year’s electricity and gas rates will be; this offers a window of opportunity to end your contract with your current supplier and move to a new, cheaper contract to save money.   While the market to find a cheap commercial electricity quote can be confusing and time-consuming, the team at D-Energi will be able to offer help and advice to guide you through it and find an excellent deal.

Advice On How You Should Compare Business Gas Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
If you are looking for advice on how you should compare business gas prices to boost profitability then this article will help. Firstly, it’s important to appreciate that sourcing a new business gas supply is not as straightforward as if we were finding a new gas provider for our homes. That’s because the business market is more competitive and your firm will be using more gas than a domestic property so a provider will need to offer a bespoke deal that will best meet your needs. There’s no doubt that by comparing business gas prices and then switching to a new provider could see a substantial amount of money being saved every year from your firm’s overheads. There’s a lot to recommend carrying out this exercise every year. Find the best commercial gas quote But how do you find the best commercial gas quote for your firm’s needs? One obvious way is to speak with the helpful team at D-Energi who have all the latest deals and tariffs available or you could contact various suppliers individually, hand them your business details and see what they offer. Alternatively, you could also visit an online business gas comparison website to see what the market rate for your needs will be but be aware that you will still need to speak with the supplier directly when you have found a quote you like. While there are obvious advantages for using an online comparison website as the prices are delivered quickly, it also needs to be appreciated that these sites may not be searching the entire marketplace so you may not be getting the best possible deal for your firm’s gas needs. Finding the cheapest gas tariff for your business This makes finding the cheapest gas tariff for your business a tad difficult since each supplier will tailor their offering and this will take into account the amount of gas your organisation will be using over the year and its location. In addition, it is possible to access a cheap gas tariff by signing up with a new supplier for more than one year – some suppliers will offer two and three-year contracts which may help with cash flow planning. However, the downside to signing up to a long-term gas tariff is that the gas prices for businesses may fall in the years to come and you may be trapped in a long-term contract that may be expensive to come out of.   For more help and advice about how you should compare business gas prices and find the deal and supplier that best meets your needs, then it’s time to contact the team at D-Energi.

Why Your Firm Will Benefit With An Energy Consultancy

by Simon Thompson
 
It may not appear to be an obvious way to reduce overheads but your firm may benefit from an energy consultancy. But what is an energy consultancy and what are the benefits from this? Regardless of the size of your business and where you are, all firms and organisations could benefit from the services of an energy consultant. Essentially, they will be able to give business energy advice so you use less energy and enjoy much lower energy bills as a result. Energy services from a business energy consultancy However, it’s important to understand that the energy services from a business energy consultancy will be an independent and impartial offering. They will help your organisation make the right decisions that will benefit your business and no one else. One of the benefits will be to identify the patterns of your firm’s energy use as all firms have peaks and troughs which are reflected in your energy bills. By analysing the data, the energy consultant will look at ways of addressing these peaks and troughs and whether there are better deals or tariffs to meet your needs; for example, this may mean switching work to a cheaper off-peak period. Cost savings from undertaking an energy consultation The cost savings from undertaking an energy consultation could be impressive and when coupled to a cheaper deal with a new utility supplier means that the annual savings could be substantial which means profitability will be improved as well. It may be that they recommend a suitable energy alternative for your business needs, for example, solar power, and will help implement this strategy. There’s no doubt that growing numbers of firms are looking at having green sources of energy and its possible to find a supplier who generates electricity from environmentally friendly sources such as solar and wind. It’s also important that the energy consultant offers ongoing advice and their expertise could prove to be invaluable when it comes to renewing an energy deal with your current provider. Indeed, the consultancy should be part of the annual exercise when looking at where there are cost savings to be made and how much can be saved when switching to a new business energy supplier.   If you would like to know why your firm will benefit with an energy consultancy and to see how much your firm could save by switching business energy suppliers, then contact the experts at D-Energi.
