Appreciating Business Gas Prices Per Kwh

by Simon Thompson
 

When it comes to appreciating business gas prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour), the main issue to understand is the influences that affect the prices being quoted.

Not every firm or organisation will understand that a supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal so the price being quoted for your needs may well be very different from the price being quoted to a business located next door.

That’s because there is a range of factors, including wholesale price changes, that will affect how much you could potentially pay. These include:

  • The geographic location of your business premises
  • How many employees you have, plus future expansion plans
  • The industry you operate in
  • The average gas and electricity you consume annually.

Other issues include how long the business gas supply contract will be as some suppliers will offer better rates for two or three-year long contracts.

Compare business electricity prices per kWh

Along with finding cheaper gas suppliers, you may be looking to compare business electricity prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour).

There are a number of issues when sourcing electricity and gas suppliers and you must understand the price being quoted per kilowatt-hour.

A supplier will detail the unit charges, which is the amount that you will pay for the actual supply of gas or electricity to your premises.

This unit charge may well be lower than you currently pay so you may believe it is a cheaper deal.

However, you also need to pay close attention to the standing charge being quoted and this is the amount being paid for delivering gas and electricity to your premises by the National Grid.

It’s the standing charge that may well be much more expensive than you currently pay so your firm will not be making any real savings and, worse, could be paying much more.

Business electricity prices per kWh between suppliers

The other issue when you want to compare business electricity prices per kWh between suppliers is the question of a bespoke deal.

Since a supplier must tailor their offering for meeting your business needs, their quote will be bespoke which means that comparing their offer with that from another supplier becomes more difficult.

It also becomes time-consuming but the easiest way is to simply calculate how much a potential deal will be costing your firm over the course of the year.

This is also an issue when you use a business energy comparison website because you’ll still need to negotiate directly with a recommended supplier, give them more details and then receive a bespoke quote in return.
