Why should I compare commercial energy suppliers?

Energy is an essential part of running a business. Whether it’s used to power machinery, heat offices, whether it’s essential to operations or simply to keep the lights on, businesses need energy to run.

But energy is not necessarily something you want to be worrying about when you’ve got a business to run, which is time consuming enough. However, as a savvy business person you’ll want to save money where you can, because cutting running costs will ultimately improve your bottom line.

Save money on your business gas and electricity

There are a number of things you could do to save money for your business, especially on your utility bills.

You could lower your gas and/or electricity consumption by encouraging staff to switch off their monitors and lights at the end of the working day, or you could lower the heating thermostat by one per cent. It all helps to keep running costs at a minimum.

But by taking a few minutes to compare commercial energy costs with our price comparison engine you could be on your way to making some significant savings, because businesses save money with Utility Saving Expert.

Whether you’re a micro business, a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) or a large corporation, as a commercial energy consumer you could be saving heaps of money when you compare your gas and electricity.

You might be a company whose energy contract is soon up for renewal, or you’ve recently moved into a new business premises and you’ve started to use energy without finding out who the supplier is. Maybe your existing utility contract has come to an end without you realising it. And If this is the case then you are on a deemed contract, which means you could be paying up to 80% more than you should be.

By comparing your business electricity or gas you could make significant savings on your overheads, so don’t be one of those companies who are stuck on expensive energy deals because you never considered switching, it takes only minutes to get the best deals.

Ask yourself, is your business receiving the most favourable energy prices that it could be? If you’ve not compared business gas and electricity then the likely answer is ‘no’.

Compare commercial business gas and electricity tariffs

We will compare the big six dominant energy providers; British Gas, EDF Energy, npower business, E.ON, Scottish and Southern Energy and Scottish Power, as well as many smaller ones to find the most competitive prices for your business.

Commercial energy provider’s prices are constantly in flux, due to global events that affect prices, so what might have been a good deal two years ago, may not be such a good deal today.

What tariff will I need?

Although they are using essentially the same product, business energy rates are not like domestic energy rates. For starters the average business will typically use more energy than the average home, but also business contracts are packaged differently to domestic contracts.

Home energy packages can encompass both gas electricity in the same plan but for business packages, this is not the case. Gas and electricity for businesses are separate, which means separate quotes and separate contracts.

All businesses are different, different sizes, with different energy needs. What tariff might be good for one business might not be so beneficial for another and so it is prudent to find a tariff that is tailored to your specific business utility needs.

Perhaps your business is a heavy consumption manufacturing organisation, or runs during off peak hours, for instance. You could be better off with a tariff that suits your energy needs.

Whether you run a small shop or a multi-location corporation, you’ll know that getting good price for your electricity can make a difference to your businesses operating costs.

It doesn’t matter how big your company is, business energy customers have plenty of options when deciding who to choose for their energy supply but deals vary greatly between energy suppliers, so it pays to find the right tariff for you.

Fixed Term tariff

A fixed term tariff is a contract that details how much a business will pay for its energy for the whole duration of the contract with the energy supplier. It will include a price per unit and a daily charge.

There are a range of fixed contracts available covering varying terms up to four years, and these are good for smaller businesses because knowing exactly what your energy costs are allows for better planning and budgeting, giving you better peace of mind because you get protection from price changes during that period.

At the end of your fixed term you could choose an automatic renewal offer, or transfer to another supplier.

Flexible Contract tariff

If you don’t want to commit to a fixed term contract then a flexible contract might be the better option for you. Flexible contracts are ideal for businesses that are looking for a good price, but want a commitment-free, flexible product.

Half-hour Meter tariff

For larger and more energy intensive businesses, you will probably have your electricity consumption monitored by means of a half hourly meter to ensure that their power usage is measured more accurately.

The meter information is relayed to the supplier and ensures that the company bill is accurately reflecting their usage.
