If you compare any two businesses, you’re likely to find very different energy usage. Even with businesses in the same industry or sector. Energy usage can change according to the number of employees in the business, the type of business and the equipment that your business uses.
In some businesses, such as comparing an office and a factory, the difference is even greater. As a result, business energy tariffs have to be tailored carefully and be chosen based on what is right for your business.
The end result of this is that you can expect your energy tariff quote to be closely tailored to your business.
It is common for decision makers to still believe that the ‘big six’ provide the cheapest rates. Whilst that has been true in the past, it is not necessarily the case any longer. When you compare tariffs for your business energy online, you’ll often see options from smaller providers. These options may be exactly what you need for your business.
Don’t necessarily dismiss an energy tariff because it’s offered by a smaller commercial energy provider. There’s only one good reason to dismiss a tariff and that’s looking at a quote that’s more suited to your company’s needs. Whether the reason is price, customer service options, renewable energy sources or another reason. It is up to you to chose a tariff that is appropriate for your company’s needs.
Comparing providers and tariffs online takes only a few minutes. It is also important to remember that many companies can benefit by switching every year. After all, you could benefit from a saving of over 40% on your energy bills.
