The last thing you’ll be considering throughout the summer is switching energy tariff. But let’s think for for minute, your usage will be lower during the summer. Even in an unpredictable British summer!
Should business owners switch energy suppliers in the summer months or does the winter cold bring better deals?
Energy providers are often switching energy tariffs and adding new ones to the market. Therefore, it’s difficult to understand exactly when the best time to switch provider is and will you actually save in the long run.
When was the last time you switched business energy provider? If you haven’t changed before you should look at changing now! Usually you can expect your energy contract to last around 12 months and once that elapses you could end up on a standard business energy tariff. Which is often the most expensive. If you’ve never switched before, you should consider looking into the market, contact an energy broker, rather than a supplier directly they’d point you into the right direction.
When business energy tariff go up?
If you notice a rise in prices you’ll realise that it’s time to switch business energy tariff. You’ll want to make sure that you avoid any inflated price increases. Crown Gas & Power are able to offer a variety of different contracts in order to overcome inflated prices. Getting on a fixed rate contract before a price hike is beneficial to your business, keeping your costs low throughout the winter months when your consumption will be higher.
Lock in before winter
Going back to my early question, it could be a good idea to research the market within the summer months/early autumn. This permits you to discover a new energy tariff, which will lower your costs whilst keeping warm throughout winter.
