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.

By switching supplier, you could save substantial amounts of money on your bills which will help boost profitability and the process itself is simple and helpful team at D-Energi can help with advice and provide the best gas energy quotes.

While this can be a confusing process trying to compare gas tariffs, it also explains why businesses will remain with the same supplier for years on end despite the fact they may have been rolled over onto an automatic contract and be paying more than they need to for their gas. Also, it’s harder to switch supplier mid-contract so it’s always best knowing when your contract renewal date is and working around that. Step 2: Knowing the information you need for switching suppliers Because a potential business gas supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal, there are some information details that you will need to hand to access these tariffs. The most important one is the gas meter number, it’s known as the MPRN, which is on a recent bill but also on the national database. This number will give the exact location of the meter for a potential supplier. You will also need to know your renewal rates from your current supplier and consumption details. Step 3: Compare business gas rates and switch With these details you can then visit comparison websites to carry out a check of what the current business gas rates are in the market, contact suppliers directly and negotiate with your current supplier once you know what these market rates are. However, this part of the process might be time-consuming for those business owners who are tied-up with their everyday business needs so it’s always worthwhile speaking with experts who understand how the business gas supply market works. That means speaking with the D-Energi team who have access to the latest deals and offers from the entire market to deliver the deal that best meets your needs.

How to Save Money with Business Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
The installation of new meters for larger electricity users means there is now a great opportunity to save money with business half hourly electricity suppliers. For those who may not be aware, a half hourly electricity meter, also known as an HH meter, is a special kind of meter that is connected to the electricity supplier via a phone line. This means the meter can automatically send its meter readings every 30 minutes to the supplier – which is why it’s called a half hourly electricity meter. This also means there’s no need for a business to take meter readings and then submit them and the regular updates of your usage also enable a potential supplier to see when your peak periods of use are and tailor their offering to meet your needs. It’s this extra level of detail which should lead to substantial savings and a lowering of overheads. Half hourly electricity meters being used by larger firms However, when we talk about half hourly electricity meters being used by larger firms, we tend to mean large offices and factories; they tend to have an electricity usage of at least 100,000 kWh of electricity per year. We should also point out that all large users of energy, including department stores and manufacturers, will have these half hourly meters installed because it’s now the law. Indeed, these meters are sometimes referred to as P272 meters which are the relevant reference for those who want to find out more, and Ofgem is keen for more firms to have smart meters installed. While it’s easy to switch business electricity supplies, the process for those who have half hourly suppliers is a little bit more complicated than switching a regular contract but there are experts available to help you do this. Access the best half hourly electricity prices for you This complexity should not put you from searching the market but you can contact an energy broker, provide the information and they can access the best half hourly electricity prices for you. Essentially, the broker will need a data release letter from your business so they can access the data that is being provided by the meter and they can begin a tendering process. The broker will arrange for quotes from various energy suppliers and then take care of the switchover process which can range from between four weeks and six weeks, depending on when your contract is due for renewal. It’s also possible that by using half hourly meters, your business may be able to ‘group buy’ your electricity even if the meters are spread over various premises. It’s also possible to enjoy cheaper weekend and night electricity rates.   For more help and advice about how to save money with business half hourly electricity suppliers, then speak with the expert team at D-Energi.
