You Can Access Lower Business Gas Rates

by Simon Thompson
 

For most firms, their gas bills are much lower than their electricity costs but you can still access lower business gas rates by searching the marketplace effectively.

Indeed, regardless of your firm’s size, there are attractive contract options available which are tailored for meeting your needs.

You will need to know when your current contract is up for renewal and then search for a new supplier but only, according to research, one in three small and medium-sized firms switch their business gas suppliers every year.

This means that around two in three firms are probably being overcharged for their gas – it doesn’t have to be like this when a new, cheaper supplier can be sourced in minutes by the D-Energi team.

The average business gas bill

The savings on a firm’s gas overheads will vary but the average business gas bill is around £850 every year and they are paying around 4.25p per kWh (kilowatt hour). Their standing charge, this is the amount paid to the National Grid, is around 40p per day.

These are benchmarked figures to highlight whether you may be paying more than is necessary and if so, then it’s time to switch.

Even a small business can save money with larger businesses saving thousands of pounds when swapping to a new provider.

The wholesale gas market is a competitive one, which means that prices will change regularly and the wholesale costs have been falling steadily since December 2013.

Switching to a new business gas supplier

When it comes to switching to a new business gas supplier, the main reason for doing so will be down to cost savings.

However, the prices being charged by a new provider will vary by region and the type of gas meter you have fitted.

There are other issues to consider, including how many employees you have and what your potential demand for gas will be over the next 12 months.

There are other ways to increase savings and you could opt for a flexible or a fixed tariff and you’ll need recent gas bills to show a potential supplier what your consumption levels are.

You will also need your gas meter number which gives the exact address of supply for the property.

Essentially, you can access lower business gas rates quite easily when you contact the experts at D-Energi because they know and understand how the market operates and have access to all business gas providers. Contact them today to lower your gas bill.
