The benefits when you compare business energy
Compare large business energy suppliers
It’s only natural that large corporate organisations consume more energy than those considerably smaller in size. So, as well as helping micro-businesses and SMEs compare business gas and electric prices to find the best deal, the tool also does the same for organisations with bigger energy needs. You’ll be able to find the best energy prices for businesses with more complex energy requirements.
How to make additional business gas and electricity savings
Businesses that on a 100% renewable energy supply are exempt from paying
the Climate Change Levy (CCL). This is a mandatory environmental tax paid for
energy derived from non-renewable fuel sources. So, it may well pay to go
Don’t leave it until after your contract has ended – you could end up locked
into an expensive rollover or out-of-contact rate if you do. Instead, shop around
roughly six months before your dual fuel tariff is about to end. This will give
you plenty of time to make your business energy prices comparison.
Want to know exactly how much power your business is consuming? A smart
meter is the best option. It’ll help you monitor your business gas and electricity
usage, as well as identify inefficiencies and opportunities for savings. And as it
sends reading directly to your supplier, you don’t have to worry about
inaccuracies or being overcharged.

Is there a cooling-off period for business energy contracts?
Yes, they are. But they’re not particularly common.
Commercial customers don’t have the same built-in protections domestic customers do – i.e., the 14-day cooling-off window. There are numerous reasons why they’re not widely available – primarily because of the way commercial supplies work, with suppliers purchasing all the energy needed to fulfil the duration of a contract upfront.
However, you can find them, but their scarcity only makes getting that comparison process right, so you end up with the right supplier even more important.

There are loads of business energy comparison sites in the UK. However, none of them understand the commercial energy sector quite like Business Energy Comparison does.
The quotes and advice aren’t ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions based on business size or industry. They’re specifically tailored to your exact requirements, as well as the short and long-term goals of your business, so you can see the benefits of switching in the here-and-now and well into the future.
It all depends. There are several factors that can influence the cost. The size of your business, the amount of energy it uses annually, when that energy is consumed, the type of contract you have and its length, where you’re based, and who your provider is can all have a significant impact.
Outside factors that you have no control over can also have an impact.
Wholesale energy prices can fluctuate depending on wider global circumstances – like weather conditions, conflicts, political events or natural disasters.
Our energy experts handle the entire switching process for you. You’ll get the benefits of their expert knowledge, as they search the energy market to find the best energy tariff for your business.

Since the beginning of 2021, a substantial number of UK suppliers have gone out of business – with many of these suppliers offering both commercial and domestic energy tariffs.
Check out our list of suppliers that have ceased trading since the start of 2021.
To find the best possible deal for your business, it’s important to look at the unit rate, the standing charge, the type of tariffs and the mix of fuel sources that generate your energy (i.e., coal, renewable, nuclear etc.).
You should consider the supplier’s reputation when it comes to customer service too. There’s no better way to gauge whether a supplier is going to be right for you than by seeing what other businesses have to say about them.
You could potentially save up to 45% by switching your commercial utilities supplier. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
A letter of authority (or LOA) is a legal document that allows a third party, such as an energy broker, to correspond with other services, such as energy companies, on behalf of you and your business.
The LOA will outline and stipulate the tasks that the third party must undertake. It’s essentially a special permission slip that allows another person or party to speak to another business. Check out our letter of authority guide to find out more!
When comparing the energy market for a better deal, you may be asked for your MPAN (Meter Point Administration Number) and MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number).
We understand these technical terms can be confusing but within our guide we have included everything you need to know about MPAN and MPRN numbers.
Both electricity and gas are billed by kilowatt hours (kWh) as standard – with a kilowatt (kW) the unit of energy, and the kWh the amount of energy consumed per hour. Pretty simple, right?
There is some room for confusion, however. You may find that your gas meter records the amount of gas your business consumes in either cubic metres (m3) or cubic feet (ft3) – but you will almost always pay for these units in kWh.
What exactly impacts the price you pay though?
It’ll be down to the unit rate – the amount each individual unit you use is priced at. Its price will depend on numerous factors, including wholesale market conditions, where your business is located, its size and sector and how much energy it consumes.
You’ll also have to pay a standing charge – a flat daily billable rate that’s charged regardless of whether you use more energy than originally forecast or none at all. It’s paid throughout the duration of your contract and helps to cover the physical supply of your energy.
Many businesses favour fixed-term tariffs because they offer protection against sudden price rises. They offer a flat unit cost (a kWh rate) and a standing charge. And they’ll stay at that level throughout the duration of your contract. Your exact billed amount will, of course, depend on how much energy your business uses.
The opposite of fixed term rate, variable rate tariffs will change depending on wholesale market conditions. So, while you can be exposed to higher costs when the price of energy at wholesale rises, you can also benefit when it falls. These kinds of tariffs can make budgeting for energy costs a little more of a challenge.
Pass-through rates can be advantageous to businesses, but they can also present some risk. With them, you agree to some of your supply costs and charges upfront, with the remainder being variable for the duration of your contract. If costs fall, you can benefit. However, if they rise, you’ll face higher costs.
