Posted on Aug 9, 2021
Saving on your business energy quote can improve the economic outlook for your business as well as improving the environment. Read on to find out more about you can save on your business energy quote.
It is more vital than ever at the moment, for businesses of all sizes to ensure their finances are stable.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise, either, that business energy costs are a significant overhead for most companies – however, they can sometimes be at the bottom of the list when looking at ways to reduce outgoings.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways, businesses of all sizes can potentially reduce the cost of their business electricity and business gas quote:
#1 Check out the business energy deals on offer
The easiest way to save money on your business energy is to look at all of the deals available, and then pick the best one for you.
Many businesses fail to realise this, with research showing that 46% of small businesses don’t review their options at the end of their contract – meaning they are paying significantly more than they should for their business gas and electricity.
When an energy contract comes to the end, many energy suppliers will just automatically roll business customers onto a more expensive deal – but this can be avoided if you sort out a cheaper deal before the end of your contract.
At D-ENERGi we have built up strong relationships with many of the main business energy suppliers, and so are able to offer you accurate quotes based on your consumption data and helping you to make the most of your energy budget.
You don’t even need to negotiate with any of the business energy suppliers – we do it all for you.
#2 Consider smaller supplies, and not just the “big six”
A lot of business owners fall into the trap of thinking that their business energy has to come from one of the “big six” suppliers – Centrica PLC (British Gas), EDF Energy, Eon UK, RWE Npower, Scottish and Southern Energy, and Scottish Power.
However, despite the fact that these companies have the biggest market share, they are not the only energy suppliers out there.
There are lots of smaller business energy suppliers who are already having a big impact on the business energy market, providing the “Big Six” with some competition and driving down prices, which offers you the best potential for greater savings.
#3 Reduce your business energy consumption
The simplest and well-proven way of reducing your business energy bill is to reduce your consumption.
Heating and lighting account for a large portion of most business energy costs. Turning your heating down by just one degree could save you 8% on your heating costs.
And it has been estimated that using energy-efficient lighting could reduce your annual business electricity bill by 66%.
