The cost of business energy is on the rise with no sign of slowing down. Although it can be easy to just accept that you will not get a rate as good as you did 2-3 years ago, it is well worth shopping around to ensure you can enjoy today’s tariff later down the line. Half of the SME’s who are customers of the Big Six energy firms haven’t changed provider in five years – it’s time to change that.
It will keep your overheads down
Gas and electricity bills are one of the biggest overheads to British businesses. If you fail to renegotiate your business energy rates before your contract end date (or before your notice period) you are automatically rolled over to your provider’s standard tariff.
By looking elsewhere or renegotiating, you can save up to 40%, a considerable deduction to your utility overheads.
More money to invest back into your business
A recent report found that if your business fails to renegotiate your rates they could be overpaying up to £532 per year. That’s a grand total of £7 billion every year across all the 5.2 million SME’s in the UK.
Rather than paying unnecessary costs to the Big Six energy firms, you can invest the money you save back into your business. Your resources, staff and office could all benefit from the savings you make.
Do your bit for the environment
There are now many dedicated green energy companies who supply renewable energy generated from forms such as wind, solar and wave power.
The tariffs from these providers are competitively priced in order to attract new customers and moreover, you can be assured that you are contributing to the increased use of green energy across the country.
It isn’t as hard as it seems!
Many businesses are cautious of changing provider as they struggle to see the benefits of moving provider and feel that switching is a difficult process. However, by implementing simple actions such as setting reminders or using brokers, changing provider is generally hassle-free.
