Commercial Electricity

In these tough economic times, a business needs to stay lean and efficient in order to thrive. To stay competitive, you look for the best deals on every aspect of your business -- but what about your commercial electricity tariff?

On the face of it, there might not seem to be much point in hunting around for a new supplier. Energy companies insist that their rates are tied to the cost of the fuels used to generate electricity. If that's true, then surely there can't really be much point in switching supplier -- right?

Wrong. Although the cost of fuel is a major factor in determining the cost of your electricity, it's not the only force driving electricity costs. Here are some other factor to consider:

There are lots of electricity suppliers around now, many of them competing over the same customers. Maybe a larger supplier with plenty of capital behind it is in a position to cut you a better deal. On the other hand, a smaller supplier that's looking to expand in your area and consolidate its customer base may be prepared to offer cheaper tariffs in order to woo customers away from larger companies. A supplier offering a new product may roll this out at a lower price for early adopters to encourage customers to switch.

You may find that a company that's broadly similar to your existing supplier happens to have a pricing structure that's more favourable to business customers. Some companies simply run their operations more efficiently than others, with lower overheads and less waste -- savings that may be passed onto you, the consumer, making them a more competitive choice.

Finding a new deal isn't the end of the story, either. Many suppliers are keen to hang onto their existing customers and will be fully prepared to arrange a lower rate if it will keep you from switching to a rival. Your existing supplier may turn out to have the best rate in your area -- but you may not be receiving it; tweaks to your usage or payment, such as adopting Direct Debit, may net you a discount on your bills.

You can see how significant variations between the price of electricity from one supplier to another may arise and how changing suppliers may save you money. Even so, you may sill be wondering whether the possible savings really merit the time and effort it takes to track down these deals. Your time is worth something, after all -- you can't spend half a day making endless phone calls or trawling different companies websites armed with a calculator.

Luckily, you don't have to. Our simple online comparison tool will do all the tedious work of comparing every possible supplier for your area. You just enter some details about your company and your energy usage into our simple webform and receive a quote in seconds.

Since the commercial electricity supply landscape is changing so much, you may have concerns about being able to compare all the possible suppliers that are out there. You might consider big names such as E.ON, Npower or British Gas as possible alternatives to your current electricity supplier -- but are you even aware of smaller, less well-known operators? Newcomers to the energy market such as Utilita are small but keen to compete, while niche suppliers like Good Energy or Green Energy UK may be ideal if you're looking to "go green". Some operators are only available in a few regions so you may be less aware of them, even if your region is one of the areas they supply. Imagine the frustration of finding after you've switched suppliers that there was an even better deal you'd missed out on.

With our service, that can't happen. We compare every single commercial electricity supplier across the whole of the UK, so you'll always get the very best quote out there. Best of all, our service is completely free.
