Big Six energy providers
If you are in the energy trade then you would have noticed that the Big Six energy providers have been hard at work marketing their products to the consumers. British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, Scottish Power, EDF and Npower have all provided energy to large corporations. But in recent years there has been a rapid increase in the number of small, independent energy providers that offer both commercial and domestic energy or even both.
When looking into obtaining energy tariffs for your business, you will find that there are two types of tariffs that can be found. There are commercial tariffs and domestic tariffs. For the small businessman, the most important aspect of any tariff is the initial contact point i.e. the company’s main site where all the information and quotes can be found.
common for suppliers
In order to compare business electricity and gas, it is important to find a reputable supplier that can offer competitive rates. A good supplier will always beat the rates from other suppliers and should have no surprises when it comes to the bills when the contract has been agreed upon. It is very common for suppliers to ask for an approximate estimated cost to run the systems during the peak periods of demand. This should always be written in black and white, so that there are no misunderstandings when billing at a later stage.
The fixed rate tariff contracts are usually more favourable when comparing with the variable tariffs available. This is because the client can set a maximum expenditure for running their energy supply and they are not left with a bad deal afterwards. With this type of contract the consumer will normally pay a higher price for the initial investment, but they do get a level of stability for a specified period of time.
gas and electricity market
When comparing business energy tariffs to the prices paid by suppliers for gas and electricity should be compared. The prices paid by suppliers for gas are regulated by the gas and electricity market price index, which is published by the British Gas. The prices for electricity are also regulated by the gas and electricity market price index, which is set by the British Gas. In order to get an accurate figure for the cost of running domestic gas and electricity it is imperative that all suppliers to provide an accurate figure for the prices they charge on an annual basis. An estimate or quote is normally provided on these occasions and should be compared against the other suppliers to get an idea of how the prices will be across the year.
