How Do You Know If You Are Paying Too Much For Your Business Electricity?

by Simon Thompson
 

Recent statistics released by Ofgem reveal that nearly 40% of SME’s haven’t tried to compare business energy supplier in over five years! This is a shocking statistic to us, as it means that a large proportion of businesses out there are probably paying over the odds for their electricity and gas – and there is no need for that! Comparing and switching suppliers with the help of D-ENERGI is such a simple task!

Why might businesses be reluctant to switch energy supplier?

We’ve talked to a lot of customers who want to compare business gas and electricity prices this year, and when we ask them why it’s taken them so long to decide to do so they say things like;

“I haven’t had time”

Time is one of our most valuable commodities – especially if you charge your customers by the hour. Your time is worth a lot, and you may think that it is more sensible for you to spend this valuable time doing things that will generate sales for your business, and therefore more profit for you. However, if you can spare us just ten minutes – yes, just ten minutes – we can take control of searching the market and finding the best quotes for you, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds in the process.

“I don’t know how to do it”

This is a poor excuse, as you don’t really have to do anything. Just fill in our quick quote form, and we will call you straight back with the best quotes on the market. It’s as simple as that!

“I don’t really understand the prices”

Some business owners are embarrassed that they don’t really understand what makes up their energy bill – but actually, it is quite common. We know all about ‘standing charges’ and ‘Kilowatts’ as we deal with them every day – but many people don’t have a clue what we are talking about. So, let’s explain:

• Standing charges – the small amount per day you pay the supplier regardless of how much energy you use? This can be as much as 70p a day, which is a staggering £175 a year, so you want to make sure this is as low as possible.

• KWh – this stands for Kilowatt per hour and usually, one unit on your meter will equate to one kWh. Again, prices for this will vary so it is best to shop around.

“My business will suffer if my energy supply is disrupted”

The team at D-ENERGi will take care of everything for you, so you won’t see any disruption in service when it comes to switching suppliers.
