The company offers a variety of energy plans based on how much gas and electricity your business uses. If you spend less than £175,000 or use less than 1GWh of gas and electricity then a fixed business energy plan is usually recommended. If, however, you spend more than that we would probably advise an option that protects you from changes in market prices and reduces risk as well as becoming more sustainable. The company also offer a multipurchase contract which allowsyou fix your energy prices over a certain period. A flexible contract, meanwhile, allows you to fix and unfix energy for up to five years allowing you to make the most of market conditions.
e.on can help your business meet its own goals on reducing carbon emissions. The company is investing in numerous projects to help its customers in this regard. If you employ more than 250 people or have an annual turnover over £38.9m and a balance sheet in excess of £33.4m your business must comply with the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations. Audits must be carried out every four years and e.on is happy to help your business through that process which promises to save your business an average of 20% on energy costs. e.on work closely with the Carbon Trust to identify areas of energy improvement and therefore savings – and this could be anything from changing the lighting you use to generating your own power.
