Are All Business Energy Suppliers the Same?
It may be tempting for the busy business owner to believe that all business energy suppliers are the same but that's not the case at all.
Indeed, since deregulation, the rise in the number of suppliers means that competition has increased greatly which, in turn, has led to lower prices for all firms if they shop around.
It’s this issue of searching for a new provider which may put off some firms as being too time-consuming and believing that all of their offers will be similar.
If your business restricts its search for a new energy supplier to the ‘Big Six’ firms then you may find that their offerings are more or less the same but if you widen your search to a newer, smaller firm then you will find there's the potential for big savings to be enjoyed.
Source new business electricity suppliers
The best time to source new business electricity suppliers
is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year's contract which is a great prompt to find a new supplier.
It's also possible to sign up for a great deal for one, two, three or even five years. This may help some firms with their cash flow predictions and bring peace of mind if they believe that electricity rates will rise in the near future.
There are various ways of sourcing a new electricity provider and you could contact each one individually, but this may become time-consuming or you could use a comparison website.
These are very popular and will fairly quickly give you an idea of what the market rate is for a business of your size and demand.
The downside to using a comparison website is that it may not be searching the whole of the business electricity supply marketplace and you'll still need to speak with a supplier directly, so they can put together a bespoke offer.
Looking for business gas suppliers
That might not be so attractive to a business owner struggling to find the time to search the market and they may also be looking for business gas suppliers
The same principle applies and you could contact suppliers individually or use a comparison website to carry out a quick search of what gas offers are available.
If you are a business owner and you are short on time to search the market, then you're not alone; a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms and organisations in the UK have never bothered switching their energy suppliers, so they are probably paying more than they should do for their energy needs.
It doesn't have to be this way and a conversation with the experts at D-Energi
will soon reveal whether all business energy suppliers are the same and what the potential savings could be for those who undertake a switch of energy providers which the D-Energi
team can take care of also.
