Compare business energy quotes

Businesses use more energy than the average household, and so providing for energy costs can eat significantly into a company’s overheads. Businesses also require specialist customer support. If the power goes out at an office or an off-licence, it will directly impact on what work can be done and business costs.

Energy rates are constantly changing, so companies should regularly compare business energy rates and switch to the best possible deals. Suppliers are no longer allowed to lock businesses into automatic rollover contracts, where they cannot charge exit fees or include a sneaky no-exit clause. It has never been easier to switch business energy supplier.

Why compare business energy quotes?

The answer is quite simple really. If you compare business energy quotes through Bright Utilities, you can save up to 45% on your business energy bill when you make the switch.

Most business owners are so busy with day to day business management, that they forget how much money there is to be saved. This is because a lot of energy suppliers will actually hike up their prices over time, which a lot of business owners unfortunately accept.

Which is where we come in!

Average business electricity prices

The amount you pay for your business energy largely depends on which supplier you are with. 

Electricity and gas are measured in kWh (Kilowatt Hours), which means the amount of time it takes for an appliance to use 1 kilowatt of energy. 

For example, this means a 1,000 watt appliance would use 1kWh. And a 500 watt appliance would equate to 2kWh, and so on.

It is often thought that it is the amount of Kilowatts used per hour by a premises. This is not the case so be careful not to get mixed up.

Costs to bear in mind!

There are quite a few costs to think about when it comes to your business energy bills. Which is why we have broken it down step by step, 

However the main sum of your business energy bill will be the standing charge as well as the unit cost.

  • The standing charge accounts for the maintenance cost as well as the transportation costs.
  • the unit cost is the charge for the amount of energy used in kWh by your business.

Average business energy costs for different size businesses

Your business energy costs will vary depending on the size of your business. This is categorised by the amount of employees that work for your business. Which will therefore affect your average unit cost as well as any standing charges.

Unfortunately, business gas and electricity need separate quotes. Which can then make comparing business energy quotes quite difficult.

Information & F.A.Q

Why should I compare business energy to switch?

Taking the time to research and compare business energy quotes can have a very real impact on the state of your business. Depending on the size, the number of staff, and how efficiently the company is run, there can be significant savings made. By using Bright Utilities, businesses can save themselves up to 45% on their annual energy bills when they make the switch.

Why should I compare business energy to switch?

There are four main business energy tariff options to consider:

  • Fixed term: This is the most popular energy tariff for businesses. Energy suppliers typically offer commercial customers a range of fixed term tariffs that will cover from one to four years. While bills will vary according to the amount of energy used, the unit cost and standing charges will be fixed over the contract term. The longer the fixed term, the more expensive it is likely to be, but at least your business will be protected from price increases.
  • Extended tariff: This allows for a current contract with a supplier to be extended. This is a good option if you are happy with your current supplier as it is common to receive a lower rate.
  • Flex-approach tariff: This means that a business can bulk-buy their energy in advance so they will know the costs up front. This can have the benefit of wholesale prices and works better for a larger business that can afford the up-front cost. However, this tariff can involve high price hikes once the contract ends.
  • Pass-through tariff: This tariff allows a business to split their bill between the fixed wholesale price and other charges, such as the National Grid, that can vary over the year. The variable charges passed on may increase over time and offset the cheaper wholesale price. This can be a riskier option in terms of price certainty.

Business energy customers can't get dual fuel deals.

  • Certain suppliers offer discounts, if bills are paid by direct debit.
  • You should investigate green energy suppliers—the prices for renewable energy are constantly falling—or those who get involved in environmental projects like tree planting.

Commercial energy contracts are different from residential contracts as the energy needs of a business are hugely different. Every business has unique energy needs that will be determined by their purpose, their location, and the needs of staff members, so there cannot be any standard tariff that a domestic user might expect. All business energy quotes are tailored to meet the needs of the individual business, so expect to ring around and research to try and get individual quotes. Indeed, this is where a business energy comparison service can make things significantly easier. They can assess your needs and present a variety of options for your business.

Why should I compare business energy to switch?

Switching a business energy supplier is much simpler than you might have been led to believe. As with household energy, the gas and electricity are supplied through existing pipes and cables. A business can change suppliers when their contract enters the switching window, which is between one and six months before the end date.

As soon as your business enters this switching window, you should run a business energy comparison. This will allow you to have your preferred energy tariff in place for when your current contract ends.
