Choosing Your New Business Energy Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 

As a business, you would think that choosing your new business energy supplier was a straightforward process but sometimes help is needed.

Thankfully, there’s a friendly team of experts at D-Energi available to help you and your organisation navigate the competitive marketplace.

Firstly, the reason why all businesses should check whether they should switch business energy suppliers every year is down to the fact they use more energy than the average household does.

The average spend on energy for a small business, that’s an employer with between 10 and 49 employees, is more than £12,000 in electricity and for gas, it is £7,000.

Today’s business energy prices

With today’s business energy prices means there is a huge opportunity for reducing overheads so that the business will reduce their bills by simply finding a new energy supplier.

In addition, there are suppliers offering energy consultancies to help you reduce the amount of electricity your firm uses to help deliver larger savings over the long-term. You will also be benefiting the environment.

However, many busy business owners will simply stick with their current supplier rather than taking the opportunity of when they are contacted with their next year’s contract rates to find a new provider.

This could be an expensive mistake because they may have been already rolled onto a contract which tends to have much higher rates than the energy supplier will provide for a new customer. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Also, when shopping around for new providers a business may simply restrict their search to the ‘Big Six’ energy firms who may have similar offerings and decide it’s not worth switching.

Finding new business energy providers

The issue of finding new business energy providers is straightforward but, according to a government survey, around 40% of firms have never bothered to move between providers and so are likely to be paying more than is necessary for their energy needs.

This may mean that switching a firm will boost profitability because their overheads can be substantially reduced.

However, it’s important to understand that the business gas and electricity supplier market is a competitive one, and there are smaller providers offering great deals and tariffs to meet your firm’s needs.

If you do decide to shop around, then you will need to appreciate that the prices being offered will vary between suppliers depending on the size of your firm, where you are located and the industry you work in.

Obviously, this means comparing offers between providers on a like-for-like basis can become complicated but if you are looking for help in choosing your new business energy supplier, then it will pay to contact the team of experts at D-Energi.
