To switch energy supplier or not to switch

If you run a business and have never thought to switch energy supplier before there’s a good chance you could be paying way too much on your bills.

Lots of businesses have found that they are on “out of contract” rates with their energy supplier which can often be twice as much as the rates on a contract deal.

And this can be very large financial sums. Government estimates are that a one per cent reduction in energy consumption by big business could save £250m on annual energy bills.

So if you’ve not switched recently, why not? It doesn’t need to be a pain or a hassle if you use a good quality, reliable and well-respected energy broker to do all of the work for you.

Switch energy supplier - using a broker

So, what could an energy broker get for you?

Competitive, long-term fixed rates through a contract with an energy supplier. These can often run for two or three years, meaning you avoid annual price increases and can budget more accurately.

Great service and support from us if there is a problem or an issue. This is reassuring extra security for you as a business in your energy use, but do remember that there is no cooling off period when you sign a commercial energy contract. You must be sure that it is the right deal for you at the right price.

If you have an energy contract that is coming to an end, the ideal time to start looking at what is available is about six months before. This gives you the chance to prepare for any potential changes in price on your energy spend along with plenty of time for consideration of all your options and the possibility of moving supplier.

A broker like us can do that leg work for you and recommend the right deal at the right price for your business and ensure that you aren’t being persuaded to pay more than you should.

Why not get in touch and find out what we can do for you.
