What Information do I Need To Switch My Energy?
Business Energy Comparison makes it easy to get a quote for a new business energy deal. Whether you’re looking for a new gas or electric supplier, all you have to do is fill out a few small details. This includes your postcode and current energy supplier.
Once you determine the best business energy provider for you, we’ll help you through the switching process. But what information do you need to present specifically to successfully switch energy suppliers?
The three main components you’ll need are your postcode, your current supplier and tariff, and your energy usage. Providing your postcode and your current supplier is easy, but how do you determine how much energy you use?
Calculating how much energy you’ll use
You should be able to use old energy bills to prove how much energy you use. Normally on the second page of your bill, you’ll find details regarding kilowatt hours (kWh) used. Here, you may also find details of your last meter reading and a breakdown of costs.
However, the supplier may not accept an old bill as an accurate reflection of what you’re energy usage will be like in the new business premises. You’re moving property, so the level of energy you use may be different.
It’s also possible to calculate an estimate of how much energy you’ll use. This estimate can be determined through a combination of your old bills, the rooms featured in the new premises, as well as how much energy the previous tenants used.
Once a usage estimate has been calculated, an appropriate tariff can be given. If this tariff turns out to be inaccurate, it can be fixed further down the line to better suit how much energy you really go through.
