How to Source a Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier

by Simon Thompson
 

There are various ways to source a cheaper business electricity supplier for meeting your firm’s needs, and this article will detail what these are.

It’s important that the cheapest electricity supplier for small businesses is selected to help keep a lid on overheads and since the utility bills will make a substantial outgoing, it’s important that you don’t pay more than you should be doing for the supply of gas and electricity.

The most obvious way to check deals and tariffs is to use one of the business energy comparison websites that are available.

While these are easy-to-use, you should check how many providers the platform is approaching with your details – it’s likely to be a restricted number, so there may be better deals available elsewhere.

You could also contact potential providers directly to discuss business electricity prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour) but this will be time-consuming and often confusing.

Find cheaper business electricity rates

Another effective solution for those who want to find cheaper business electricity rates is to speak with the team at D-Energi who can search the entire marketplace and explain the terminology that will be used.

Indeed, anybody searching online for a list of business electricity suppliers UK would find this task easier of sourcing a new provider by approaching D-Energi first.

There are a number of issues you will need to appreciate when sourcing a new provider, including the difference between fixed and variable rates – with a fixed-rate you will agree to a set price for the contract duration and with a variable deal these prices will change in accordance with wholesale prices.

There’s also a need to understand the electricity price per kWh (kilowatt-hour) which is the unit rate for the actual electricity consumed whereas the standing charge is an amount that you will pay the National Grid for delivering electricity.

Business electricity supply market in the UK

There’s no doubt that the business electricity supply market in the UK is a competitive one and this is useful when you search for potential providers when your current deal is up for renewal.

There are two very good reasons for asking providers for quotes:

  • You will ensure you don’t pay over the odds for your electricity supply
  • By simply seeking quotes you will be boosting competition in the market which will benefit all firms.

 

And while you may be busy on a day-to-day basis, the task of finding a cheaper business electricity supplier is made easier by the friendly team at D-Energi who can search the entire market on your behalf and find a bespoke deal that will best meet your needs.
