My wife and I run a cafe in a busy market town (well, its busy three days a week) and we are after lowering our gas bill to make more money. That’s sound business but we are concerned because we are next to a shop that pays even less than we do even though we are large consumers of gas. Why should this be?
The simple answer is that business gas suppliers have different criteria, so you cannot consider the premises next door as being on a like-for-like deal. Suppliers quotes vary depending on where you are in the country, the industry you work in etc.
While it’s true that business gas suppliers have different criteria, you should shop around for a better deal. I would speak with the Business Utility Hub to see if you can have an energy consultancy carried out so that the gas consumption levels fall so you’ll be enhancing any savings that you make.
