Your Checklist for Cheap Business Energy Deals

by Simon Thompson

The first thing to appreciate for any checklist that will help deliver cheap business energy deals is that all providers will offer a bespoke tariff.

This means that the suppliers are working to different criteria and helps explain why firms located close to your premises may be paying completely different rates.

You need to understand:

  • A provider will need to know the industry you work in and how much energy you consume every year.
  • How many employees who have and whether there are any plans for expansion.
  • Whether you need an energy supply to one premises or more than one premises.


Checklist to access a cheap business electricity deal

The checklist to access a cheap business electricity deal will also need to include the fact that the size of your business will dictate whether a provider will even quote for meeting your needs and why the rates vary.

Essentially, if you’re a large consumer of electricity then your firm will enjoy lower rates than a micro business will access.

On top of this, you’ll need to calculate what the average cost of a new commercial electricity contract will be over the course of the year.

This is relatively easy to do since you use the price per kWh (kilowatt-hour) being quoted and apply that to your average consumption level.

However, you also need to calculate what the daily standing charge will be since this varies – and it could have a big impact on how much you can pay or even save on your commercial energy rates.

Accessing a cheap business gas deal

The checklist for accessing a cheap business gas deal is the same as it is for electricity.

It’s important that you get as many quotes from potential providers as is possible to ensure you get the best deal for meeting your firm’s needs.

That’s easier said than done and should you decide to contact providers directly then this will take a lot of time and you could decide to use a commercial energy comparison website.

While these websites are popular, they are probably not searching the entire market, so you should see how many firms are being approached for a quote.

If you want to ask the entire marketplace to quote for meeting your firm’s needs and ensure that you’ll get the best cheap business energy deal, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi to act on your behalf.
