If your business uses gas, it can be easy for your monthly bills to mount up. It’s important to keep on top of your energy costs, to make sure you’re getting the best rates, and not paying more than you need to. Though it can seem daunting at first, finding the best business gas prices is simple and straightforward - here’s everything you need to know to compare rates and get the right deal for you.
Unlike energy deals for your home, there are no standard ‘off-the-shelf tariffs’ for businesses. All commercial contracts are designed to meet the specific needs of each individual business. This means you can get a bespoke deal that’s tailored to your business’s specific needs.
Switching to a better deal is a quick and easy way to reduce your overheads, by making sure you’re getting the best deal possible and not paying over the odds. Switching won’t affect the day to day running of your business - you won’t need to have any work done at your premises, and there won’t be any interruption to your supply.
Usually, you won’t be able to switch to a new deal until your current one is in its ‘renewal window’ - this is normally one to six months before your contract end date.
When you start shopping around for a new business gas deal, you’ll need to know the details of your current deal, so you can get accurate quotes. You’ll need to know:
All of this information will be included on your most recent bill.
Our energy experts will use this information to bring you the best tariffs available, so you can choose the one that best suits your business.
The amount you pay for your business gas can be affected by lots of things, including the location of your premises and how much gas you typically use. But, this table should give you a rough idea of the average amount you can expect to pay, according to the size of your business.
|Business size||Average price (per kWh)||Standing charge (daily)|

|Small business||3.8p - 4.0p||21p - 22p|
|Medium business||3.5p - 3.7p||18p - 20p|
