Sourcing Cheap Business Gas and Electric Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 
Every business wants to reduce its overheads, particularly for its energy bills, so sourcing cheap business gas and electric suppliers should be a crucial part of their plans. By regularly comparing energy deals and tariffs means a business can ensure they getting the best electricity or gas tariff available for their usage. This process of comparing tariffs will also highlight whether a business can reduce their bills by simply switching their energy supplier rather than by using less energy for their everyday needs. Comparing gas and electricity tariffs Indeed, the old adage that it pays to shop around is certainly true when it comes to comparing gas and electricity tariffs with some firms enjoying annual savings of several hundred pounds and some enjoying much more. For a business or organisation that has never compared the market for the best energy tariffs or even switched their electricity or gas supply before then the process may appear to be daunting. However, it’s anything but and the process to finding a cheaper energy tariff is very simple. Also, the process is made much easier by contacting experts in the field who understand how the market works and who can find the best deals and tariffs which can change daily. Find a cheap business gas supplier For most firms, it makes sense to undertake a market evaluation to find whether there are better deals available and to source a new supplier – even if the business simply wants to find a cheap business gas supplier. This is also the point to reassure firms that there will be no loss in their energy supply during the switching process and they only need a few relevant details when looking for better business energy deals. It should also be appreciated that substantial savings can be made by large businesses as well as small and medium sized enterprises; the energy sector’s regulator is encouraging firms of all sizes to regularly check the market and switch if necessary to save money. Energy suppliers for business customers A simple trawl of the Internet will reveal that there are lots of energy suppliers for business customers but the business itself may not always appreciate just how good or reliable the potential supplier may be which means they should ask for the expertise of those who understand the market. So, when it comes to finding the best cheap business gas and electric suppliers, then it pays to get in touch with the team at D-Energi who will be happy to give more details about the process and what potential savings may be on offer.

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.
