How to Find Cheap Business Electricity

Switching to a better business electricity deal is the most simple and effective way to cut your commercial energy bills. But because switching business energy isn’t quite as straightforward as switching home energy, there are a few things you should know before you start the switching process.

What is cheap business electricity?

Before you can start searching for cheap business electricity, you’ll first need to get an idea what exactly constitutes a cheap electricity deal.

Although your business electricity bill is made up of a variety of charges, including VAT and government levies, the unit cost and standing charge are the two components that have the biggest impact on your business electricity rates – the unit cost is the price paid for each kWh of electricity used, while the standing charge is a daily amount that covers the cost of transporting electricity to your premises and national grid maintenance.

The good news is, they are also the two components you can change by switching to a better deal.

How to find the cheapest business electricity rates

Every company is unique – even two businesses of the same size and in the same industry will have different energy needs – and to reflect this, business electricity quotes are bespoke.

When working the amount your business will pay in unit costs and standing charges, energy suppliers will look at your location, size, number of employees and energy usage pattern.

To get the cheapest electricity rates, you need to compare deals from each and every supplier on the market. As you can imagine, this can be very time consuming, as you’ll have to run through all your details with each supplier.
