Looking For Business Energy Suppliers?
Posted on Mar 1, 2017
For any organisation looking for business energy suppliers, the market will appear to be complicated to navigate.
While there are lots of commercial energy suppliers, including the better-known names, there are lots of opportunities to reduce energy bills with just a little bit of effort.
So, for those who are looking to find the cheapest business electricity and gas deals, it’s important to find a contract that meets their needs and reduces bills.
It should also be appreciated that suppliers will be offering a range of services as well as lower prices in a bid to entice potential new commercial customers.
This means it is worth the time taking a look at what they have to offer.
Business electricity suppliers who offer a low a fixed price
Indeed, some organisations may prefer to find those business electricity suppliers who offer a low a fixed price and longer contract term.
For many organisations, this policy would make sound financial sense since energy experts are predicting that energy prices will rise over the coming years.
To find the best deals, organisations also need to understand that while they could check comparison websites to find lower prices, these prices may not be available to their business.
That’s because business energy suppliers will offer a bespoke deal and the organisation will need to find two quotes for their electricity and gas usage.
Unlike for householders, organisations cannot get a dual fuel deal and must find separate quotes for each fuel type. While this may appear to create an obstacle, it also presents the opportunity to have two separate energy suppliers for gas and electricity offering the best prices.
So, when it comes to accessing accurate quotes an organisation will need a recent energy bill to hand.
Potential new business energy supplier
This will have on it important information for the potential new business energy supplier, including the meter registration number so the supplier will know exactly where the organisation is.
The bill will also show up the energy rates being charged and the organisation will also need to know when the current contract comes to an end.
This is because they cannot switch energy suppliers mid-term and can only give notice to quit their current supplier in the weeks before the contract comes to an end.
However, if the organisation owes their supplier money then they may be prevented from switching suppliers until the bill is finally settled.
Also, there will be lots of organisations who have not switched suppliers previously and so their commercial energy contract will have been automatically ‘rolled-over’.
In this situation, these organisations will probably be on a ‘deemed’ contract and are likely to be paying more for their energy than they need to but they can leave a deemed contract for a new supplier at any time.
Compare business gas suppliers
There are lots of reasons why an organisation should undertake to compare business gas suppliers for their prices as well as electricity suppliers, on a regular basis, and the main one is to ensure that they are not paying more than they need to for their business energy supply.
It also helps to keep abreast of the market for prices and new suppliers entering with better offers.
Once the firm finds a potential new supplier, they will then have an energy package tailored to their business needs.
Some commercial energy providers also undertake an analysis of their customer’s usage to ensure they get the best deal that suits them and highlight ways to save money by using less energy as well.
So, for organisations that are looking to lower overheads and beat ever-increasing business energy prices, it will pay to search the market and find a cheaper energy supplier.
Savings that can be made every year
While this may sound complicated and time-consuming, it’s a process that will pay dividends because the savings that can be made every year range from several hundred to several thousands of pounds.
While the savings can be impressive, it should also be appreciated that the savings are applicable to organisations of all sizes whether they are small or large and range from one-man bands to multisite operations.
However, the most efficient way of searching the market for business energy suppliers and finding great deals is to contact a firm that specialises in sourcing these deals and that means contacting the experts at D-Energi who will be pleased to help.
