How to Compare Business Energy Per kWh

by Simon Thompson

The energy costs for your business or organisation is made up with unit rates which is the price you pay for each unit of energy so you will need to compare business energy per kWh (kilowatt hour) deals between providers.

Also, you will need to take into account the standing charge, which is an amount that goes towards paying for supplying electricity and gas to your premises – usually calculated on a daily basis.

However, comparing business electricity and gas tariffs per kilowatt hour can be complicated because you will be looking at separate quotes from providers for these utilities.

This will then make it more difficult working out which is the best value deal for your firm’s needs but looking at the price per kilowatt-hour makes this job easier.

Best cheap business gas and electric supplier

Finding the best cheap business gas and electric supplier will mean selecting the right tariff from a supplier’s offerings and knowing how much energy you use during the year means that calculating average prices per kWh will give you a good idea of what the new deal will cost.

However, the unit price per kilowatt hour will vary depending on your geographic location and the industry you are in and also how many employees you have now – and plan to have in the future.

Also, the size of your business will have an impact with micro-businesses paying slightly more than a small business who will pay slightly more than a medium business will do.

Cheap business gas supplier

Finding a cheap business gas supplier, and also for electricity, also means appreciating the standing charges they have which do vary between suppliers and sometimes these differences can be huge.

For example, a potential new supplier may offer an impressive price per kilowatt hour but have a much higher standing charge to make up for this.

Effectively, your firm will not be making any real savings and switching to a new provider may end up costing you more.

In addition, most business owners are very busy with their day-to-day responsibilities so finding the time to source a new energy supplier will not be easy.
