How to ensure you’re getting the best energy rates for your business

When was the last time you checked your business energy rates?

The energy market is constantly changing, and prices are ever increasing. Do you regularly check your rates to ensure you’re getting the best value for your business? If you don’t know what your current rates are or how they compare to the market, then you could be losing out.

Our experience shows that small to medium sized businesses are routinely paying out an average of £500.00 – £1000.00 more than they need to each year (and that’s an average – some are paying far more!).

Whilst you may be tied into a contract with your current supplier, you don’t have to wait until your current contract ends before finding out if you could be on better rates in the future.

What can you do?

Call your existing provider and see if they have better alternative rates to offer you.

Use an online comparison site. There are a handful to choose from, and although they usually only work with a select few energy suppliers, they’ll likely be able to give you a good idea of what else is available in the market – all the information you’ll need to be able to do this is on your bill.

Speak with a broker. At Simple Energy our services are completely free to you (we take our commission from the provider) and we have access to over 100 UK business energy providers and their current rates for all meter and business types. Simply send us your last gas and/ or electricity bill and we’ll research the best rates available for you, nationwide. Even better, once we’ve found the best rates for you, we’ll also deal with the entire renewal or switching process for you.

If you’d like more information or have any questions, we’re always happy to help. Send us an email to or give us a call on 0333 344 4302.
