Business Electricity Tariffs Comparison

Working out which electricity tariff you should get is important, especially as most business tariffs are fixed contracts. Typical electricity tariff contracts are four years, so choosing one that fits your ongoing needs could save a lot of time and hassle down the line.

When comparing business electricity, to help you decide which tariff is right, you should consider your business model and its needs. These include:

  • The size of your business
  • How long you plan to stay in one place
  • Your current electricity usage
  • When you use electricity

 

If you’re thinking of moving premises in the near future or if your business runs seasonally, a short-term contract would be a good option as it will give you more flexibility to switch.

To check your energy usage, all the information you need should be on any previous recent bills you have to hand. If you’re a new business, you can call suppliers who should be more than happy to give you an estimated usage.

Which Tariff Will Be Best for Your Business?

Once you have a clear idea of what your business needs are, selecting the right tariff should be a lot easier. The main tariff options are as follows:

  • Fixed-rate: the price of your electricity stays the same throughout your contract
  • Flexible: you bulk-buy your energy before using it. This is a good option if your usage is high
  • Smart meter: Your electricity usage is monitored half-hourly and your bill is more accurate
  • Multi-site: Your energy company supplies electricity to several business locations
  • Eco: The electricity comes from green resources, like solar power
