Over the past year, the energy industry has been going through lots of changes. From price fluctuations to a drop in the number of energy suppliers. So we know it has been a tough time for energy consumers.
When looking for commercial energy tariffs the market and any factors affecting price can get even more complicated. That’s why it’s important to make sure you are getting an energy contract that is right for your business.
Comparing energy deals
If there is anything your business should be doing to save money it is to compare gas and electricity prices. This will make sure you are not paying thousands more than you need to be. You can do this by contacting suppliers and getting quotes from each one. This may take some time and requires a good knowledge of the energy market to make sure you're getting the best deal. If you do not have the time or resources within your business to do this then don't worry, we have a team of energy experts here at Resolve Energy that are dedicated to finding you the best business energy deals.
Contract negotiation with suppliers is one of the services that we offer at Resolve Energy. If contacting each supplier to compare deals sounds like a daunting process or you don’t have the time needed for this, then let us do it for you. Our energy experts can compare energy suppliers for you and help you save your business time and money.
Switch energy contract
Many energy contracts rollover when your initial contract with an energy supplier comes to an end. For business energy, this could mean you pay a lot more than you need to for your business energy needs. Therefore, you should always be keeping an eye on your energy bills and making sure you are switching at the right time.
The usual time to switch your contracts would be when your current contract is coming to an end. If you don’t then your current supplier will just move you onto a different contract which is normally more expensive.
If you are not sure how to switch your business energy contract or don’t have time to compare lots of different businesses, then why not let an expert handle it. Here at Resolve Energy, we have a team of dedicated energy experts that can help handle your contract. Whether you are just starting up as a business or are ready to switch contracts, we can make sure you get the right deal and could even save you thousands of your bills.
What types of energy contracts are there?
Suppliers offer lots of different contracts so it’s important to make sure you are on the right contract. The different types of energy contracts include:
- Fixed-term - This is where charges are set at a fixed price for the contract. Prices will still vary each month depending on your usage. If you are good at keeping on top of your energy bills this may be the best for you.
- Deemed rate - If your current tariff ends without switching or arranging a new deal then you will be placed on this out-of-contract tariff. This will usually be the supplier’s most expensive rates.
- Variable rate - The amount you pay on this contract is linked to market activity. Meaning your bills will fluctuate each month based on supply and demand.
- Rollover - This contract type is what you will be put on if you don’t agree to an alternative contract before your current contract’s end date. Like the Deemed rate, the rates for a rollover contract are going to be amongst the supplier’s most expensive.
If you are not on the right contract for your business, you are going to be paying a lot more than is needed for your business energy bills. If you feel like you are on a deal that doesn’t suit your business, or you are paying too much for your electricity and gas bill then why not get a free quote from us now.
If you decided to leave your business to go onto a rollover contract or deemed rate, then the impact this has on your budget could be detrimental. Also, with the energy market changing so frequently, you don’t want to risk your contract being changed over in a time when energy prices have skyrocketed. We make sure that when you come to us that we are getting you the best energy deal for that time and make sure that your bills don’t roll over to an even more expensive contract.
