As a business owner, you’ll appreciate the importance of keeping costs down and avoiding unnecessarily high overheads. You’ll also be aware of just how easy energy costs can quickly add up, especially during the colder months.

And if you’ve let your business energy contracts end without agreeing a new deal, you’ll almost certainly be paying too much for your gas and electricity.

The trouble is, it’s not always possible to take time out of your busy schedule to check the latest prices and deals on offer, and that’s where UKPower can help - our energy experts can do the majority of the work for you, to save you both time and money.

Even if you’re used to switching household energy, you’ll quickly find that switching business energy isn’t quite so straightforward - commercial gas prices, in particular, are much more volatile and can change on a daily basis. Our energy experts have access to all available commercial gas deals, and can help you sign up to a new contract that fixes prices at the cheapest rate possible.

We compare business gas prices from suppliers across the market to find you a cheaper deal and save you money on your energy bills.

If you’re not completely satisfied with what’s on offer, we’ll carry on comparing deals until we find one you’re happy with. Once that’s all sorted we can guide you through the rest of the switch, step-by-step, to help save you both time and money.

There are all sorts of costs that go into making up your energy bill, but there are just two charges you need to consider when comparing business gas prices:

  • Unit cost – The price you pay for each unit of gas (measured in kWh) your business uses.
  • Standing charge - A daily charge that covers the maintenance of the national grid, and the cost of transporting gas direct to your business premises.

These are the two main costs that make up your monthly gas bill, and will make the biggest difference to the price you’ll pay for the gas your business uses.

Each business uses gas in different ways and in different volumes, which means it can be difficult to work out an accurate estimate for your individual business. That’s why providers work on a scale of average prices based on the size of the business. The table below should give you an idea of how much energy your business should be using, as well how much you can expect to pay in unit costs and standing charges.

Business size Annual usage (kWh) Price per kWh Standing charge Average annual cost
Micro business 5000 - 15000 4.0p 32.0p £516
Small business 15000 - 30000 3.8p 30.0p £ 965
Medium business 30000 - 65000 kWh 3.5p 28.0p £ 1502

You also need to consider there are two different types of commercial gas tariff on offer and switching to the right one at renewal could save your business as much as 70% on its gas bills, they are:

  • Fixed term deals –these lock you into an agreed rate for a set period and are a great way to protect against any price hikes. On the flipside, if prices fall your price will still be fixed and you’ll not see any of the benefit.
  • Variable tariffs – these are usually rolling contracts with no fixed term and need careful consideration as the rate can go up or down, depending upon the energy market.

If you’re business is paying anything above the average rates, it’s time to switch to a better deal.

The average business will use more electricity than the average home, and this higher demand means corporate customers can often negotiate better rates.

On the flipside, a higher demand coupled with rising wholesale electricity prices, as well as environmental levies and taxes, mean it’s easy to rack up big electricity bills. And you need to be especially switched on when your contracts come up for renewal – if you don’t agree a new deal with your current supplier, or negotiate a better one with a new supplier, you’ll be rolled onto an expensive rate, and may even be tied in for another year.

But finding the right deal for your business can take time, effort and no shortage of know-how – and that’s where we can help.

Our team of energy experts will not only look to get you the best deal, they’ll also offer advice on how to give termination notice to your current electricity provider and deal with any supplier objections that might arise.

Just let us know a few details about your business and its energy use, either online or over the phone, to run a business electricity comparison. In getting the best deal for your business, we’ll not just consider the cost, but other important factors, such as online billing, customer service and how meter readings are delivered.

Once we find an electricity plan that meets your needs and budget, we’ll take you through each step of the switching process to ensure a hassle-free move.

And the best part is our service is 100% impartial and completely free, so you can be sure we’re working in the best interests of your business and that there’ll be no hidden fees.

To work out your annual electricity rates, your supplier will estimate how much energy your business will need, based upon the type of work it does and the size of its premises.

The table below should give you a rough idea of how much electricity your business should be using, and how much you should be paying in standing charges and unit costs.

Business electricity tariffs are usually set up for a fixed term of between one and five years, and because all businesses have different electricity requirements, it makes sense to tailor your tariff to meet your specific needs.

If, for example, you have a number of electricity meters across multiple sites, you could be better off taking out a multi-site energy plan that puts them all on the one tariff. But if you only have a couple of sites to consider, it might be more cost effective to have them on separate plans.

If you run a large business, or one with a high consumption rate, you should have a half-hourly electricity meter installed. These meters relay accurate usage information to your supplier every 30 minutes, and saves the hassle of potentially inaccurate estimates, which could see you paying for more electricity than you’re actually using.
