Business Energy Suppliers

Find out about all the business gas and electricity suppliers Make It Cheaper works with.

A business energy supplier is a supplier that sells energy to businesses. In the UK, business energy suppliers include the ‘Big Six’, as well as some smaller, more specialist suppliers. Not all will meet the needs of your business, and it can help to understand a bit about each before making your choice.

This guide explains more about suppliers and what to look out for when choosing one.

Which is the best business energy supplier for me?

When choosing a new business energy supplier, customers often opt for whichever offers the cheapest deal. To ensure your supplier can meet the needs of your business however, there are other factors to consider before making your final decision.

So, aside from price, what else should I think about?

Customer Service The quality of after-sales support your supplier offers is important. If anything goes wrong, you want to be confident that your query will be handled quickly and to a high standard. You can get a good idea of how other customers rate the supplier by looking at the ratings show in the table below.

Length of contract

A shorter contract allows you to switch and save deals more regularly, giving you greater control over your costs and business needs. Some suppliers only offer longer term contracts, while others are more flexible, so this is another factor to consider while making a decision.
