How to Compare Business Electricity Prices Per Kwh

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses and organisations should be looking to reduce their overheads and one way is to compare business electricity prices per kWh. Indeed, the same method can be applied to your business gas supplies well and you’ll need to look at your bill as the first step. Your business electricity bill will have a standing charge and also the cost per unit, the kWh. So, using this information you can then run a business energy comparison with other potential suppliers. You can do this easily using an online comparison website. Looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh However, just as a word of warning when looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh, you need to appreciate that the website may not be searching the entire market so cheaper suppliers may not be highlighted. Also, you will need to understand that a standing charge is an amount that is charged every day to cover the supplier’s costs in delivering the supply to your premises. The unit charge, or kilowatt-hour charge, is for every unit of energy the business uses. A potential supplier may offer a lower standing charge then your current supplier but their unit charge may be higher so there’s no real effective saving; you will need to sit down and work out carefully what each supplier is really offering. Calculate business gas prices per kWh As mentioned previously, you can use the same comparison website to calculate your business gas prices per kWh to source a new supplier. However, you may not appreciate that business energy suppliers can offer much more than lower prices and while we all want to lower our overheads, there may be some appeal in some of the other benefits. For example, they may offer a personal account manager or even online account management to operate your account effectively. Some suppliers may also offer an energy consultancy so not only will you enjoy cheaper bills than your current supplier but you may also reduce consumption to lower your bills even further.   Essentially, if you’re looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh then it is a good place to start online but speaking with the experts at D-Energi will enable you to search the entire market in just a few minutes – saving you valuable time – and also offer other potential extra benefits as well.

Why Your Firm Should Compare Energy Prices

by Simon Thompson
 
There are lots of reasons why your firm should compare energy prices and the main one is to ensure you are not paying more than you need to for your energy needs. It’s also a straightforward process to compare offers and deals with suppliers in various ways including visiting comparison websites or speaking with the experts at D-Energi. Since most firms will be relying on their energy supply to operate, it’s important that you engage with how the business energy market works so you can switch suppliers if necessary. It’s also important that you do not simply renew with your current supplier’s offer but check the market to see what competitors are offering; as mentioned previously, the switchover process is straightforward. Along with a few bits of information, you will need to understand more about business energy prices. New supplier will be quoting their business electricity rates per kWh Firstly, a potential new supplier will be quoting their business electricity rates per kWh (kilowatt hour) which may appear to be daunting and confusing. It’s really not. Indeed, your first question may be what is a kilowatt hour? It’s essentially what the supplier will call a unit of energy to help determine how much your business is using over a set period of time. One kWh unit will be 1,000 Watts used over one hour. It’s also important not to get confused with the term kilowatts (kW) since this is a unit of power whereas kWh is the unit of energy. Understanding business energy prices per kWh It’s also important that understanding business energy prices per kWh will help you understand the potential quote more easily; some suppliers may charge a low unit price but have a hefty standing charge instead. This means that what appears to be a good saving with a low kWh charge is nothing of the sort once the standing charge is added. All quotes should be compared and calculated in a similar way. It’s also important to appreciate that while both gas and electricity suppliers will use the same terminology, electricity is much more expensive than gas and this is something to appreciate when comparing business energy suppliers.   If your firm is looking to compare energy prices to save money, then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi who have access to all of the latest offers from business suppliers and they can help explain any terminology and take care of the switchover process as well.

Using A Business Energy Comparison Exercise To Lower Overheads

by Simon Thompson
 
All businesses and organisations should be looking to lower overheads which means carrying out a business energy comparison exercise could pay dividends. It helps that the process itself is easy to undertake and the switchover process to a new business energy supplier is seamless and simple. According to government figures, around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched energy suppliers which means they are probably paying more than they need to for their energy needs. By spending just a few minutes you and your firm could save a substantial amount of money, regardless of your business size. Even a one-man band can save hundreds of pounds every year from their energy costs while larger enterprises will save substantially more. You won’t know until you contact the D-Energi team to find out what deals and offers are currently available. Specific business electricity comparison for prices It may be that you are looking for a specific business electricity comparison for prices because your current supplier has sent you a letter to renew your current contract. This is always an ideal time to carry out a comparison exercise. We are always looking for value for money for our businesses and in our everyday life and this should also extend to the supply of electricity to a business’s premises. So, while you could visit online websites to compare business electricity providers, you may find a great deal but you will still need to speak with the supplier directly because they can only offer a bespoke offering. Also, businesses are not able to access a dual fuel deal like we can for our homes which means contacting electricity and gas suppliers separately. Again, there are big savings to be made if you switch to a supplier who is keen to get your business and they may offer a longer-term deal at great rates and even offer a consultancy to help you reduce energy consumption to lower your bills even further. Undertaking a business gas comparison for prices As mentioned previously, along with checking electricity suppliers it’s always worthwhile undertaking a business gas comparison for prices as well. While gas bills tend to be lower there are still savings to be made. The process for comparing suppliers of gas is similar to that for electricity and again you’ll need just a few pieces of information including the gas meter number so potential supplier will know where your businesses are. It may also help if you have a smart meter or have detailed information about your gas and electricity usage so you may be able to access much lower prices by switching to cheaper periods. Ultimately, all businesses should be looking to review their overheads on a regular basis so if you want to know more about undertaking a business energy comparison exercise then it’s time to speak with the experts at D-Energi to see how they can help you.
