What are the different business tariff options?

What is a fixed term tariff and how does it work?

A fixed term tariff is a contract type that details how much a business will be expected to pay for its energy consumption.

You will be charged a fixed price per unit for your gas and/or electricity usage. You will also have to pay a daily standing charge, this is an additional cost, and does not affect how much energy your business consumes.

The price you pay for each unit, including the standing charge will not change for the duration of your business energy contract. The length of these contracts are generally one to four years.

These may be suitable for smaller businesses because knowing exactly what your energy costs are allows for better planning and budgeting, giving you peace of mind because you’re protected from price changes during that period.

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

What is a variable rate tariff and how does it work?

A variable rate business energy tariff can be more flexible, this will depend on the energy market’s current and future climate. If the cost per unit is lower, you could save money by taking advantage, however, if unit prices increase, your energy bill will also be higher in accordance.

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 likely have your consumption monitored by a half hourly meter to ensure that the power usage is measured more accurately.

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

Will my current supply be disrupted?

You should not experience any disruption or downtime to your current supply when you switch commercial energy suppliers. The new energy provider will manage the whole switchover process for you.

The only thing you need to do is take a final meter reading and make sure that your last bill is paid, your old supplier will contact you about this.

If you have decided to switch suppliers whilst you’re already in a contract, you will be responsible for making sure any exit fees and charges are paid. It will be useful to check if the savings outweigh the costs of switching.

What is green business energy?

Green energy is another term for renewable energy, it will be sourced naturally from biomass, solar power, and wind power etc. As a commercial energy customer, you will be given these options.

You may decide to choose an option that doesn’t use fracking, this is an environmentally damaging way to extract natural gas from the earth. You can also take smaller steps to consider the environment such as being more energy efficient and opting for paperless billing.
