Identify the problems with your current supplier
Business Energy Renewal is vital for any business and is an important decision whether to renew your current supplier or not. You may be tempted by all the fantastic offers from your current supplier and you may even have signed up on the dotted line, only to find that you would have to find a new supplier as your supplier has changed. However, it is never too late to change suppliers as they can affect your bottom line drastically. It is worth checking to see if you have got a good deal before committing to switch. The sooner you identify the problems with your current supplier the sooner you can make the changes necessary to improve your cash flow.
It is also important that you have checked to see if there are any errors in your current contract. If you enter into a business energy renewal agreement and find that you have been misled by your supplier then you should take action. This is one of the most important reasons to check that everything in the contract is as it should be, you don’t want to sign a contract with someone if you discover that the price they quote you is more expensive than what the contract states. It is also worth checking to see if the provider you are considering switching to is a good match for you and your company. You may have been attracted to their pricing structure because it suits yours and your company, but if they fail to keep up with price increases you may not be in the best position to stay as a customer.
When you are choosing a new supplier for your business
It pays to do some research into the different suppliers available. It pays to check that they offer the right kwh and don’t charge you more for the energy prices that you already pay. You can get a great idea of the two costs from a couple of sources; you can ask for a quotation from each of your existing suppliers and you can contact a few suppliers and ask them to supply you with a quote based on your request for information. Use these quotes to find out the amount of energy you will need to power your business and, if you are planning to change over to a different supplier during the switchover period, how much will you have to pay for the energy to continue.
It can be a good idea to visit the websites of the gas and electricity suppliers that you currently deal with. In these websites you will be able to request a copy of your current contract, and during the contract period you can look at how much your energy rates have risen. This can help you work out a budget so that you know what you can reasonably expect to spend on the electricity. This may also let you see if you can make savings on the kwh costs by changing over to another supplier.
works on your behalf during the switching process
A business energy renewal deal that involves a dedicated account manager will provide you with the best deal around. This is a person who works on your behalf during the switching process and will ensure that you don’t spend more on your electricity than you can afford. The person will also help you work out how much kwh your supplier has left in its supplies, which can often tell you how much energy your business will need. You don’t want to use more than you have, and switching over to another supplier could mean you are paying too much for your own.
However, many business owners find that it is possible to save money on their own costs through changes to their suppliers. For example, some suppliers offer a direct debit from their account, allowing customers to pay their existing bill online and avoid potentially hefty installation fees. There are also measures in place where a percentage of your kwh payments can be deducted from your bank account and this amount can be refunded should you choose to terminate your contract with your supplier. Regardless of whether you choose to move your supplier during the term of your renewal notice or not, the fact that you have discussed your options with an expert in the field will enable you to make the best decisions.
