This is not to be confused with a variable price plan (VVP) which can fluctuate regularly. Deemed rates are generally much more expensive therefore it is advisable not to allow your contract to run its course without agreeing another up to one year prior to the end date.

The fuels used in green business gas come from sources that won’t run out, unlike fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are short in supply, which could lead to higher prices as they become harder to obtain and this can also lead to you paying higher prices for your business gas.
Our green gas experts can advise you on options that suit your business. We have contacts with some of the UK’s largest gas suppliers and specialists in green energy so we can negotiate green gas deals to suit all your needs.Green energy

Rob says that thanks to the competitive rates secured by Utility Bidder in his studio, it would actually be cheaper to live there than at home! “We pay about £30 a month for gas during the winter and around £25 a month for electricity – and that’s despite having a lot of energy guzzling equipment such as studio lights and fan heaters. Our energy bills at home are far more expensive!”
Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.
I would highly recommend to everyone I know.
Had a lovely phone call from Connor this morning, he was very helpful, explained everything very clearing and all I had to do was agree to everything that was suggested and he done the rest! Very happy with the service

Most gas suppliers give you a window of between 6 and 12 months to secure a new contract. Securing a contract with a new supplier in due time, before your contract end date, will help prevent you from paying out of contract rates, also improving the ease of transition between one supplier to another.
Securing a long term, fixed rate tariff gas contract early could help to protect you from the elements, although it can’t be avoided forever, unfortunately.
We recommend securing a new business gas deal early to avoid disappointment. Switching supplier can provide good savings for your business.
Finding the best business gas quote can be difficult. There’s many new suppliers emerging in the market, plus the big 6 and other established suppliers.

So what is the best way to proceed? If you have the time and negotiating skills, then calling all the suppliers would be the best approach. However, we understand that running a business is time consuming. This is where Utility Bidder come in! Allow us to negotiate the best gas deal for your business.
There are two types of gas meters – digital and dial:
Digital – When reading the meter, read from left to right, ignoring red figures. Also ignore any zero’s and digits after the decimal point.
Dial – Again, when reading a digital meter, read from left to right, if the point is between numbers then take the lower figure. If this is between 0 and 9 then take the number 9 for the reading.
Ignore red readings.
