Our energy bills at home are far more expensive!”

To start saving money on your business electricity you have to tackle consumption and energy spend. Energy monitoring and saving devices are good, but if you want to save money you also have to look at your energy statements to see how much you’re paying for your unit rate and daily standing charge.

Many suppliers are offering their customers free smart meters, allowing you to monitor your usage in real time. Why not see what optional extras you can get with a contract by speaking to us today.
Digital – Read from left to right. If you have 2 numbers due to having a ECO20:20 or Economy 7 meter, then take note of both readings.

Dial – Always read the meter from left to right. If the number is between 2 different digits then take the lower number. If this is between 9 and 0 then take the number 9.

There’s many additional and inclusive charges that make up your statement. Only 45% of your unit rate is made up of raw electricity, the rest is made up of additional charges that get picked up on the journey to you. The cost of generating and distributing electricity for business is extremely high and over the years we have seen this increase dramatically.
Figures suggest that this trend is set to continue, with business electricity prices per kwh continuing to increase. It’s important to lock in the best deal for your business.
The initial renewal quote you receive from your current supplier is likely to be inflated. Having a good consultancy on board gives you access to all major suppliers and takes care of the process.
