Business energy contracts differ from domestic plans. They’re usually longer, with contracts being in place for up to five years. Unlike household energy plans, there isn’t normally a cooling-off period, so it’s important to follow the right steps to find the right business energy contract for you.
Don’t waste time
If you know that your business energy contract is coming to an end, you’ll get a better deal the sooner you act.
If you see a cheaper tariff, then you must enquire about switching as soon as your previous contract is up. If you wait until the day your plan expires, then the market prices may have increased, and you’ll lose out on a good deal. Or you’ll have left it too late and your current utility supplier may have placed you on a rollover contract.
Determine what you want
Before making the switch, determine what you want from your new business energy contract. Do you want stability and predictability with a fixed-term contract? Or do you want to switch to green suppliers to boost your business green credentials? Knowing exactly what you want will help you find the right business energy contract.
Calculate your current business usage
Taking regular meter readings, either through a smart meter or the old-fashioned way, can give you more precise information about your energy consumption which will help to negotiate a new business energy contract.
Use a utility broker
