Good Reasons for a Firm to Switch Energy Suppliers

by Simon Thompson
 

There are several good reasons for a firm to switch energy suppliers but the main one is also the best one: to save money.

Indeed, the process of looking at the entire energy supply market is something every firm and organisation should carry out every year when their current energy contract falls due.

By doing this they will appreciate that they are on a good deal and, if not, they can easily switch.

The main purpose of spending time looking into the energy supply market is to lower overheads and boost profitability.

Main aim for any energy switch

This is the main aim for any energy switch a firm undertakes and should be good business practice for all firms and organisations.

For many firms, their energy bills will be a major part of their outgoings and for some could be a big financial burden. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Unfortunately, lots of firms are either unwilling or unable to carry out the search on a regular basis and then spend the time to switch suppliers.

Indeed, the energy regulator Ofgem says that 40% of all firms in the UK haven’t switched energy suppliers in the last five years.

They want more firms to switch on a regular basis which will encourage more suppliers into the market and with more suppliers means competition is increased and we all get to enjoy lower energy prices for our business.

By not switching the firm is probably paying more

And let’s not forget that by not switching, the firm is probably paying more than they need to for their energy which is money that could be better used for other purposes within the organisation.

The Competition and Markets Authority has calculated that small and medium enterprises have probably overpaid by nearly £300 million over the last few years by not shopping around.

That’s an astonishing amount of money being spent by small firms who could instead use it for better purposes.

It’s important to remember, however, that firms cannot switch energy supplier unless their contract is due for renewal but it doesn’t hurt to do homework beforehand and understand how the market works.

Firms could visit comparison websites on a regular basis to see what the market rates are which will also highlight the direction of travel for gas and electricity prices; many industry experts are predicting that prices will rise in the short-term.
