Owning a business can make you a lot more attentive to your expenses, thanks to the responsibilities it carries. It is advisable you apply the same care to managing your energy provisions at home too, but the success of a business depends entirely on how you keep the expenses low enough to make a profit at the end of the day. Energy suppliers come in handy when you are not an expert in energy provisions and you don’t know why your expenses for electricity are so high. Energy consultants not only are experts in what a business needs when it comes to energy, but also can help you find the most convenient solution after an analysis of your consumptions highlights what made the bill rise if it wasn’t a company raise you are not aware of.
There are three main reasons other why a bill may have risen, if you used to have a convenient provider and it’s not that your supplier is more expensive than others in general. Your tariff was temporary and now expired is one possible reason. You may have forgotten that it was such, or you may have not noticed it in advance it was, or you may have undervalued the impact the expiration would have on your business if you knew what the price without would have been.
If this is your case, consulting electricity suppliers will help you sort out alternative deals or your consultant can act as a negotiator with your current company and get you another deal. If you have been a long term good customer it’s unlikely the company you are with won’t try to keep you instead of letting you go give money to a competitor. The other two reasons, instead, are strictly related to how much you actually consumed. The most obvious one is, of course, that your consumption increased. This can be due to longer working hours or Daylight Saving Time ended, but also to invisible causes such as new appliances from a different consumption range.
The remaining reason is that your company may have based the bill on estimated consumption’s instead of your actual one. The latter may be lower, but it may be higher as well. In the second case, business energy consultants can help you finding solutions to cut the consumption in conjunction with switching deal if your tariff is not the most convenient.
