Tips to Carry Out a Business Energy Comparison Effectively

by Simon Thompson
 

If you are looking for tips to carry out a business energy comparison exercise effectively, then this article will help.

The best and easiest way to compare the offers between business energy providers is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the entire market and can find a deal that will best meet your needs.

Alternatively, you could speak with a potential energy provider individually, give them your details and see what they have to offer.

This process can be confusing and time-consuming because each supplier will need to offer a bespoke deal so undertaking a like-for-like analysis may become difficult.

Undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers

This also extends to undertaking a business electricity comparison between providers to find a cheaper deal because of the way providers put their bills together.

You’ll need to appreciate the unit charge for each deal and also the standing charge; the unit charge is for the actual energy used by your business, while the standing charge is to help pay for the supply via the National Grid to your premises.

There’s no doubt though that undertaking a business electricity comparison exercise will be time well spent and the optimum time to do this is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract rates.

Failing to search for a better deal may see your business being moved onto a ‘deemed’ rate, which tends to be pricier than those being offered to new customers. This is always best avoided.

Undertake a business gas comparison exercise

This issue of being rolled over automatically onto a more expensive tariff also extends to gas suppliers, so you should undertake a business gas comparison exercise as well.

Perhaps the easiest way to do this quickly is to use an online comparison site for gas and electricity to see what the potential offers are and whether you will save any money on your overheads.

The only issue with these sites is that they may not search the entire marketplace, so you may miss out on cheaper and better deals from other providers not listed on the comparison site.

Also, because a new supplier must offer a bespoke deal, you will still need to contact them and give them your details so they can tailor their offering to your needs.

It’s much easier to carry out a business energy comparison by simply asking the experienced team at D-Energi what is available for your firm and they can do this in a few minutes by searching the whole marketplace and take care of the switchover process as well.
