There are various differences between business energy and domestic energy contracts that you need to be aware of. Firstly, unlike domestic energy contracts which you can leave at virtually any time, you are only able to exit a business energy contract if you are at the end of your current one.
Although most domestic energy deals will charge an exit fee for ending your deal early, business energy deals don’t usually offer this get-out, meaning that once you’ve signed up, you’re locked in for the duration.
So, if you are looking for a new business energy contract, you must first ensure you are nearing the end of your existing deal.
Secondly, you can’t enter a business energy deal without first speaking to someone at the energy company you’re switching to. This is because energy contract tariffs depend on a number of factors related to your business, including size, location and consumption habits.
Unlike domestic contracts that can be set up online in a few clicks of your mouse, businesses are required to call up an energy supplier in order to provide them with information that will enable them to provide you with a more accurate quote.
If you run your business from home but would like to access a business energy deal, you will need to use more than 50% of your consumption for your business. This may initially sound like a lot of energy, however it includes heating and lighting during your office hours. So, if your office hours are 8 hours per day from Monday to Friday, you’ll most likely be eligible for a business energy deal.
It’s important to remember energy prices vary depending on the size of your business, with large businesses often given a lower unit energy price than small businesses. This is simply because they require more energy, so energy providers want their custom. But even small companies can benefit from a business energy deal, as you’ll often find business energy tariffs provide better rates than domestic deals.
