How To Compare Business Gas Prices Per kWh

by Simon Thompson

In an effort to reduce overheads, firms and organisations may be looking to reduce their business energy bills and so they may want to compare business gas prices per kWh between potential new suppliers.

This is an effective way of finding out which potential supplier is offering the best deal but there are two charges to any quote and one is the cost per unit, which is expressed as kilowatt hours, and there’s also a standing charge.

Both of these will be quoted in pence so carrying out a comparison is an effective way to see which deal will best meet your needs.

Compare business electricity prices per kWh

The same exercise can be done for electricity so you will need to compare business electricity prices per kWh as well.

However, while this strategy will highlight what the potential supplier is offering, it is not always the best way to compare business energy costs between suppliers effectively.

That’s because you will need to understand how much the standing charge is and remember to add that into your calculations when looking at the unit charge.

The standing charge is for the supplier delivering energy to your premises and maintaining the National Grid.

The second charge, the per kilowatt hour tariff, is a set rate and will be tailored to the amount of energy that your business is using.

Looking at business electricity prices per kWh

As an example, when looking at business electricity prices per kWh, the lowest charge may not necessarily be the best deal for your business.

You may need to look at the supplier’s other offerings including whether they offer account management and energy advice so your business will use less gas and electricity.

The upshot for using a consultancy like this is that you will lower your energy use and pay even less on your business energy bills as a result. This is a big bonus for firms looking at long-term ways to reduce their bills and energy usage levels.

Indeed, there’s a lot to recommend that every firm and organisation looks at their utility bill costs every year and then look to see if there are any other better and cheaper offerings available.

The switchover process, should you find a cheaper utility supplier, is straightforward and there will be no loss of supply to your premises.


While it’s easy to compare business gas prices per kWh, as it is for electricity, there are other issues to consider including the customer service and consultancy offering and the D-Energi team can help explain why the extra services may well be the offering to choose.
