Contracts and business gas and electric comparison

There are however, certain circumstances in which your current supplier can object to you switching. Usually these involve any debt you may have with them, missed payments, or any terms referring to a fixed contract period. If they do object, they must tell you as soon as possible and explain their reasons for objecting, and offer a resolution.

Does my business have a half hourly meter?

If your business has a maximum demand of 100kW or greater in any half hour period during the day, then the law states that you must use half hour metering. If your business has a maximum demand of 70kW or more, you can opt to have a half hourly electric meter installed.

Why compare business energy prices?


Energy rates are always changing. Therefore, it makes sense to compare business electricity prices and switch to the best possible deal for you at renewal. It's not always about cost, though. You might choose to switch for better customer support or a tariff that suits your needs. Suppliers are no longer allowed to lock businesses into automatic rollover contracts, which means they can’t charge exit fees or include no-exit clauses in automatic rollovers. This could make it easier to switch business energy suppliers.

Is switching my business energy supplier a good idea?


Businesses use significantly more energy than the average household in the UK, so making sure you’re always on the most competitive electricity tariff is an easy way to save your business money. As well as this, if your current supplier has allowed you to roll on to a higher tariff, you could already be spending more money than you have to.

Using an intermediary to help compare business gas and electric

Here at Bright Utilities, we can support you and help you make a business gas and electric comparison. It is also important to understand that this is different to getting a quotation for your private home supplies.

There are few available price lists in the business market, so you will need to contact suppliers individually. Furthermore, some suppliers may not be interested in offering you a deal, depending on the size of your company and its credit rating. We can however take on a lot of the legwork for you.

We will ensure that the contract is tailored to meet your needs and explain any clauses that are causing you difficulty. We will also provide you with a list of the companies with which we can make a comparison.


Micro businesses and a business gas and electricity comparison

The size of a workforce may be a factor in choosing an appropriate supplier, since many providers will offer different deals for large corporations compared to SMEs.

The regulatory body, Ofgem, have also added another grouping referred to as micro businesses, and this may be relevant to you. These businesses qualify for different energy contracts. They must have fewer than ten employees, and show a current turnover of less than £2m, or alternatively an electricity usage of less than 100,000kWh, or gas billings of under 293,000kWh.

Remember that although business gas and electricity supplies may operate at a lower rate than domestic supplies, business customers are subject to the higher VAT rate of 20% in most cases, rather than the 5% applied to domestic supplies.

All businesses are also subject to the Climate Change Levy, which applies to both electricity and gas supplies.

Why you need to compare business gas and electricity


Most energy companies do not offer a dual fuel arrangement to businesses as they do to domestic consumers. This therefore means that you will have to have separate deals for both forms of energy supply. Many companies will offer a different rate, if you agree to take both electricity and gas from them, but this is unlikely to be the cheapest option.

If you use both types of energy, this means that you will have to carry out two comparison exercises, one for gas and also for your electricity supply.

Here at Bright Utilities, we can simplify the process for you and make sure that you get the most suitable deal for your company, and save money as you switch.

Business Energy Prices


With energy prices in a constant state of flux, you could be improving the position of your business by switching suppliers and negotiating a better deal.
