Top Business Energy Comparison Tips
If you run a business, be it any size from SME to multinational, then it’s important for your bottom line that you’re not overspending in any way shape or form. When it comes to your energy provider it is possible to switch your tariff or provider to save a significant sum, but unlike with your household bills a business tariff is bespoke to the needs of your business and as such can vary wildly. Below we’ll list a few of our insider tips to ensure your business can save money via energy comparisons:
When you’re looking for the best deal it helps to get a breakdown of unit rates and standing charges – this will keep you much more informed about what’s available and how much you should be paying as opposed to relying on estimated annual costs.
Hit The Phones
If you don’t ask, you don’t get! With price comparisons firmly fixed in your head you have a ballpark figure for what the ‘going rate’ for business energy is but that doesn’t mean you can’t haggle. Get in touch with brokers to push them down on price but don’t be scared to then take this figure you’ve reached directly to the energy provider either to cut out the middle man.
Fixed tariffs are becoming the norm when it comes to business energy and it’s not uncommon for businesses to get a two or even three year fixed tariff. This varies depending on the supplier, and the longer fixed terms will tend to be more expensive as they’re constructed with a view to protecting them against any price rises in the future.
No Cooling Off
When it comes to business energy tariff’s there’s no cooling off period which makes it doubly important that you are 100 percent satisfied with the deal you’ve haggled. On top of this you will be locked into the contract once it is signed off meaning no switching if a better deal turns up six months in.
Be Aware Of Automatic Renewals
Some energy tariffs will automatically renew on a rolling contract or after a particular period, locking you into another tariff. The onus is on you to arrange a new deal prior to your current one expiring during a one-to-six-month renewal period or else you’ll be locked into the same contract you have been on.
