Business energy suppliers

Compare business energy prices from our panel of trusted suppliers to find the deal that's right for you.

When looking to secure a good deal on the energy that your business is using, it can be time consuming to collect quotes from a number of different suppliers. Whereas it’s important to be as thorough as possible when running a business energy comparison, it’s possible to save yourself some time by not collecting quotes from suppliers that do not meet the specific needs of your business.

To help you better understand which quote best suits the needs of your business, it can help to properly understand your supplier.

Which is the best business energy supplier for me?

Naturally when looking for a new business energy supplier, you may decide that the supplier who offers you the cheapest quote is the best business energy supplier for you. However, in truth there is much more to a supplier than the prices they offer, and focusing on price alone can mean that your chosen supplier does not properly suit the needs of your business.

So, aside from price, what else should you consider?

For a small business, the level of after-sales support that a business energy supplier offers can be an attractive feature. You can develop a general understanding of the level of support that customers are offered by looking at the supplier’s customer rating, which can be found in the table below.

In addition to after-sales support, the length of contract that a supplier offers can also have a bearing on which is the best fit for you. As a small business owner, it can often help to manage costs by signing up to a shorter term contract to allow you to compare prices and find cheaper deals more frequently. However, some suppliers will only offer longer term contracts, so this needs to be considered when deciding which suppliers to approach for quotes.

There are many other factors that can determine if a business energy supplier is a good fit for you. If you would like help deciding, switch with Make It Cheaper, and our business savings experts can help you understand your business energy needs, and even make supplier recommendations to ensure that the needs are properly being met.
