If you want to check a commercial gas quote to see whether there are cheaper deals available, then this article will explain the steps to take.
The main issue is to speak with the Business Utility Hub who can search the entire marketplace to find a cheaper deal and also look at the deal that has been offered to see whether it really will meet your needs and save money.
There are a number of issues to consider when you search for a commercial gas quote from providers, including:
- How long you want the contract for since longer contracts tend to have cheaper prices
- Whether you want a variable or fixed-rate contract
- Whether you want other incentives to sign up, for example, an energy consultancy to help reduce consumption and boost the potential savings.
Understand business gas prices per kWh
However, it’s really important that firms and organisations understand business gas prices per kWh because a simple mistake here could see you pay more than you currently do.
No firm wants to switch to a dearer contract when they set out to save money and this is how the confusion over these kilowatt-hour prices may arise.
Essentially, you will be looking for lower unit prices for the actual gas consumed which the potential provider may offer.
However, you also need to take into account the standing charge, which is an amount you pay for gas to be delivered because this varies and it could be much more than you currently pay.
This then means there are no savings to enjoy and you will sign up to a deal that ends up being more expensive.
Undertake a business gas comparison exercise
When your current provider gets in touch with details of your new contract, this is the prompt you need to undertake a business gas comparison exercise.
You could use a commercial gas comparison site to see the prices being offered or you could contact providers directly, but this can be time-consuming.
By not responding to the prompt of a new contract, you run the risk of being moved automatically onto out-of-contract rates which tend to be much higher than the supplier will offer new customers.
This is a situation you must avoid because unless you are a microbusiness, you will be locked into these new rates for 12 months.
