Our service charge is already included within the unit rates that we offer. There are no other fees on top. We charge 1.5pence per/kwh. Our fees are the same with all suppliers. If for example your business consumed 10,000 kwh per annum, our annual fee would be £150.
For UK business energy, the main suppliers are known as the ‘Big Six’. They are: British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, npower, Scottish Power and SSE.
In recent years though, there has been a big rise in the number of independent energy suppliers which can supply either domestic or business energy – and they’re quite often cheaper too. Some independent suppliers can even offer a specific focus on green energy tariffs and also provide specialist customer service assistance.
You normally choose between a fixed term or variable rate tariff for your business energy contract. On a fixed tariff, you pay a set rate for every unit of energy consumed over a fixed period of time. Fixed term contracts are usually between one and five years, with longer term contracts usually costing more, but offering more security. It’s sometimes worth paying a higher price to know your energy cost in advance, allowing you time to manage and control budgets appropriately. It’s also worth considering that exit fees or terms and conditions may exist if you wish to leave your contract early.
On a variable tariff contract, your energy rates can change depending on market behaviour, with fluctuations on wholesale prices of the energy market dictating your daily costs during the length of your contract. This is usually a more expensive method than fixed rate tariffs, but bear in mind that if markets fall steeply, your prices will also fall!
It’s important to mention that you should know your contract end date. Once a fixed or variable rate contract ends, you’ll be automatically given an expensive ‘out-of-contract’ rate – so always compare your prices in advance and switch as soon as possible. BusinessEnergyQuotes.com can do this for you in less than 10 seconds.
Some suppliers can charge you different prices for each unit of energy depending on the time of day, usually breaking them down into ‘Day’, ‘Evening’, ‘Night’ and even ‘Weekend’. ‘Day’ rates are generally more expensive, so if your business is most active outside of this timeframe, it might be worth investigating your options to find a deal that gives you energy at a lower rate.
Yes. BusinessEnergyQuotes.com allows you to search for exclusively ‘Green Only’ options. Selecting this option gives you a range of business energy quotes with green energy tariffs where some or all of the electricity you use is calculated against the amount of renewable energy your supplier buys, including solar, wind, and hydroelectric power.
Yes, depending on the size of your business. Large businesses using more than 100kWh of electricity every 30 minutes are legally obligated to install a half-hourly (HH) meter. These businesses typically include factories, large offices, warehouses and manufacturers.
Businesses that use between 70kWh and 100kWh every 30 minutes may choose to install HH meters if they want. A HH meter provides your supplier with regular, incremental data to monitor and track your energy spend.
Businesses which do not qualify for HH meters may want to consider installing a smart meter instead. These smart meters will help monitor your consumption and ensures accuracy with your energy bills. You won’t have to submit your readings yourself to your supplier as they will be able to see your consumption. By the end of 2024, all UK businesses and households must be offered a smart meter.
Almost all energy bills are paid by direct debit, as it is the quickest and easiest way to pay, with some suppliers even offering reduced prices if you choose this option. However, your monthly bill will change according to your energy consumption, so always be sure to cross reference your debit with the actual bill! You’ll also need to factor in seasonal and weather changes – more energy used in winter; less energy used in summer!
Yes. However, it usually makes most sense when you’re reaching the end of your existing business energy contract. It’s also vital to make sure you do renew your business energy contract to avoid being automatically enrolled onto a more expensive ‘out-of-contract’ rate.

Not always. Market prices regularly fluctuate, and your current supplier may not be able to guarantee the same rates you were previously paying. With BusinessEnergyQuotes.com you can see the latest, live quotes for your business energy renewal in just 10 seconds. You will know immediately if you could potentially save money on your energy renewal.
There is always some degree of fluctuation on the energy market as it is constantly changing due to external market factors – meaning prices may vary. You can learn more about the latest updates on the energy industry and understand market analysis at https://www.ngpltd.co.uk/news-insights/.
Fixed tariffs are a more straightforward option for businesses who are looking to maximise financial security: the unit prices will remain the same throughout the full duration of your agreed energy contract.
This method is popular for our Small and Medium Businesses as it makes financial forecasting and long-term budgeting simpler, ensuring businesses are always able to prepare and plan in advance of their energy bills.
However, if the wholesale energy markets drop in price, you will not be able to capitalise on cheaper rates until your next business energy renewal.
Moreover, as a contingency measure in advance of potential market changes, suppliers may charge you higher rates per kWh (kilowatt-hour).
Variable tariffs are unlike fixed tariffs as the until price for your energy may change with fluctuations in the wholesale energy markets. It could go one of two ways for your energy costs.
When the market drops and wholesale energy prices are lower, you could find your energy bill is considerably cheaper than what it might have been on a fixed tariff.
However, if the market sees an increase in wholesale energy prices, it would also mean an increase in your energy bills.
It is important to keep updated on the state of the energy market to anticipate the factors which may cause market fluctuations. You can learn more about the latest updates on the energy industry and understand market analysis at https://www.ngpltd.co.uk/news-insights/.
