How to Save on Business Electricity

by Simon Thompson
 

If you are looking at ways to save on business electricity bills, then one of the most effective methods is to switch your energy supplier.

This switchover is a straightforward process and it’s important that your firm or organisation is on the best electricity tariff available to save money.

Failing to switch to a new tariff or a new supplier means that your current provider may move you across to a higher tariff which may be more expensive.

Also, it’s important that when you take time finding a new electricity provider that you do save money and in some cases, you could save up to 30% on your current bills by simply switching.

Compare business electricity per kWh prices

However, in order to save, you should compare business electricity per kWh (kilowatt-hour) prices to ensure that your savings are genuine.

In addition to these prices, known as the unit rate, you also need to calculate how much their standing charge will be and this is the amount paid for delivering energy to your premises by the National Grid.

You could carry out a comparison exercise by contacting potential providers directly but this can be time-consuming and also confusing trying to understand each deal and tariff because their offer must be bespoke to meet your needs.

You could also use a business electricity comparison website but there are issues with these as well.

Compare business energy per kWh prices

While a business energy comparison website is a great way to compare business energy per kWh prices, the site itself is probably not searching the entire market.

This means that the platform will have a restricted number of suppliers and you’ll still need to speak directly with the recommended provider.

The best way of accessing cheaper business electricity bills is to search the entire market and find a deal that not only meets your needs but potentially has other attractive benefits for switching to them.

The incentives that you may find attractive may include having a dedicated account manager, easier ways of paying your bills or even having one bill for supplying several premises with energy. Some providers also offer an energy consultancy to help you reduce consumption levels to deliver bigger savings.

There’s a lot to consider when you want to save on business electricity bills and it is worth the time speaking with the experts at D-Energi who can explain more and search the market to find a deal that will probably be much cheaper than you currently enjoy.
