Get a Commercial Energy Quote and Benefit with Lower Bills

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses want to keep their energy bills low and the best way is to get a commercial energy quote to see how much they can save. The process for doing so takes just a few minutes and the firm could approach a business energy supplier directly, use various comparison websites or be more effective and utilise the services of a firm that understands the energy market and how to obtain the best quote possible. For many organisations looking for lower energy bills, that will mean contacting the team at D-Energi. Indeed, to find better energy prices, the firm will simply need their electricity and gas supply numbers to hand, details of how much they are spending with their current energy supplier and how much they will be spending on their future energy needs. Firms with several premises looking for a commercial energy quote For firms with several premises looking for a commercial energy quote, then they will need to supply details of those energy needs as well. However, firms looking for energy suppliers will need to appreciate that they will have to source their gas and electricity supply needs separately. The process of finding a quote is quick and efficient and the firm will soon find whether they will save money or not; in most cases the savings can be substantial and range from several hundred to several thousand pounds every year. That’s the kind of energy saving that makes contacting business energy experts worthwhile. Finding lower commercial energy prices In addition to finding lower commercial energy prices, a business may also find savings to be had from when their peak usage times are and even moving to green energy suppliers to help boost their environmental credentials. Firms can also reduce their energy bills by introducing measures in the workplace to reduce the amount of energy being used, for instance switching off lights in unused offices. Obviously, the size of the saving to be had depends largely on the firm’s energy use and there will be small and medium sized firms who may believe that their savings will be relatively small but this will not be the case and they should put experts such as D-Energi to the test to see just how much money they can save by switching business energy suppliers. As mentioned previously, the process for finding a commercial energy quote is straightforward and it’s also quick so it helps that the process for switching to a new business energy supplier is also straightforward and there will be no loss of supply during the process itself; for more help and advice on how to find lower business energy prices, then contact the experts at D-Energi.

Why a business should compare Business Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
There are lots of reasons why an organisation should compare business energy prices and the main one is for the savings that can be made. Indeed, the most effective way of achieving the best savings for an organisation’s own needs is to utilise the expertise of energy experts who understand how the market works and can find the best possible deal. The main point to appreciate is that the market to compare business energy prices is not the same as that for comparing energy prices for the home. For one thing, business energy providers have a variety of tariffs and will tailor their offering to a business’s needs. Compare business electricity prices This also means a business may have to source a deal that will compare business electricity prices separately whereas a householder can get a dual fuel deal. That is not to say that some business energy suppliers will not tailor their electricity and gas offering to a business though most firms will mainly be using electricity. Indeed, most businesses will have a fixed term contract for the supply of their electricity and most of them will pay this by direct debit; the time to look at a new deal is when the fixed term contract is coming to an end. Some firms may believe that the process of finding a new business energy supplier is complicated and decide to remain with their current supplier and will then move on to what is a rolling contract but this also means they will not be enjoying the best possible energy prices. Firms looking to compare business gas prices Firms looking to compare business gas prices should also appreciate when their current contract is coming to an end and use that as an incentive to shop around and find a better energy deal and reduce their overheads. The business energy supplier will get into it with the firm before their contract comes to an end to inform them that this is going to happen and unless they hear otherwise, then they will move onto the rollover contract and what are known as ‘deemed rates’. Again, when it comes to comparing gas tariffs, it is probable that the business will find better rates and better terms if they have more than one premises that need a gas supply. Finally, an important aspect for any organisation looking to compare business energy prices is the process is straightforward and there will be no loss of supply to the premises during the switchover process but for any questions and advice on energy tariffs, then contact the team at D-Energi for help.

Why the P272 Legislation from Ofgem Benefits All Businesses

by Simon Thompson
 
It may not have the sexiest title for legislation ever but the P272 regulations from Ofgem will help all firms and organisations in the UK access much cheaper business energy tariffs. That is undoubtedly good news for all firms since they will effectively keep on top of rising energy costs and ensure that their overheads are controlled as well – which means they boost their bottom line too. Indeed, it’s important that all businesses appreciate what P272 means since all firms must, by April 1 2017, have their energy use recorded every 30 minutes if their meter is in profile classes 5 to 8. The changes are down to Ofgem modifying the balancing and settlement code which is known as P272 and though this will not mean much to firms, it should lead to them enjoying lower energy bills as a result. Business energy supply The business’s energy supplier should have contacted them to discuss whether they have a suitable meter or whether it will be replaced and they must then have this done. The supplier is responsible for carrying this out. The move to automatic meter reading means there will be no need for somebody to turn up on site to check the meter and it also gives energy suppliers a better idea of a firm’s energy usage. In turn, this means they can tailor their offering to their customers and offer lower prices. This obviously means that businesses will no longer have estimated bills and, more importantly, they are also unlikely to receive an unexpectedly large bill when they are unprepared for this. Enables a business to reduce energy costs However, one of the big reasons for the industry to move to half hour billing is that it enables a business to reduce energy costs because they can access cheaper and better deals from differing energy suppliers. Also, businesses are usually tied into a fixed business energy contract so they are unable to switch suppliers until the contract is nearly at an end – and they can only switch if there is not an outstanding debt with the current supplier. There will undoubtedly be businesses who are confused about the P272 legislation and the need for them to switch to smart meters but there is help and advice available from the experts at D-Energi who will be able to explain more about the need for the new meters and also find the business a cheaper business energy supplier as well.

The Quick Way to Find Cheap Business Energy

by Simon Thompson
 
There is a quick way to find cheap business energy deals that will benefit businesses so they save money and boost their profits as a result. Many organisations may believe that the process of finding cheaper energy is a complicated one and will be time-consuming too. However, the process is incredibly simple and consists of three simple steps: the business should contact the energy experts at D-Energi and tell them how much they are spending; let the experts quote after searching the whole market; the business then accepts the quote and the switchover process begins and they save money. Cheap business gas or electricity It should be appreciated at this point that the switchover process will see no interruption to the firms’ energy supply – whether it’s for cheap business gas or electricity and the whole switching process will be seamless. This way of sourcing cheaper electric and gas quotes should appeal to the owners of small and medium sized businesses since they will rely on the expertise of those who understand the market to find the best deals which means there’s no need for the business owner to spend time trying to find the best quotes. Indeed, the process between contacting D-Energi, handing over a few details about the firm’s meter and energy use, to receiving a no obligation quote that will be cheaper than the firm’s current deal will be done in minutes. In addition, the firm will also have no paperwork to complete as this will be done on their behalf to save even more time and hassle. Cheap business electricity or gas The important thing to remember is that the firm will save money – it could be several hundred or a few thousand pounds a year depending on their use of cheap business electricity or gas – which is a great return for calling the experts at D-Energi. But that’s not all since the experts will also remember to check the market when the contract comes up for renewal to ensure that the client always gets the best deal possible and is not locked into the less than favourable rates that many energy firms charge customers who do not switch business energy suppliers. Indeed, with the prospect of higher energy bills for all of us being predicted in the coming months means that the searching of the energy market for the best possible deal every year makes commercial sense for a business since they will know they have the best deal possible and are not overpaying for their energy needs. For more help and advice on the quick way to find cheap business energy then businesses and organisations should contact the helpful team at D-Energi.
