Yes, the business energy market is open for business. This means you can still switch business energy suppliers and look to save money against possible future price increases. 

Businesses may be facing substantially higher energy bills coming off a fixed-rate deal. These higher business energy prices are a result of multiple factors stemming from rising wholesale prices. You read more about how the energy crisis is impacting businesses here.

You can choose from a selection of live rates when you compare business energy suppliers with us. These rates change daily and could go up or down. 


Many business owners are choosing to lock in prices now for peace of mind and security against the unknown tomorrow. Switching business energy tariffs does not impact your entitlement to the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS).

Why should I switch business energy suppliers? 

Business energy usage is typically more expensive than domestic, so it is important to keep a close eye on your monthly energy bills. Many business owners choose to switch commercial energy suppliers for peace of mind and predictability with their monthly bills. 

Switching to a new business energy supplier can bring: 

  • A cheaper business energy tariff against future price fluctuations 
  • Better customer service from a new supplier 
  • More control of your current business energy contract

What to consider when switching business energy providers? 

Getting accurate business energy quotes can be challenging if you don't have the right information to hand. For a seamless switching process, even if you're just reviewing the latest energy costs, you consider these steps: 

1. Terminate Your Contract 

If you have found a great gas and electricity tariff, you'll need to terminate your current contract. Remember that gas and electricity must be switched separately - a top tip is to fix your business electricity and gas for the same amount of time to get it locked-in for the same amount of time. 

If you do not terminate your contract, your current business energy provider will place you on expensive out-of-contract rates. Providers are not always the best at sending renewal notices through (unless you're classed as a micro-business). 

2. Locate Meter Registration Numbers 

When you compare business energy quotes having your Meter Point Reference Number and Meter Point Administration Number (MPRN & MPAN) to hand will ensure you're getting accurate rates based on actual usage. 

These numbers should be displayed on a recent energy bill. If you don't have these to hand, our intelligent comparison engine can often find this out for you. 

3. Your Company Information 

You'll need some basic company information so our business energy experts can find you a great deal. Switching can be completed completely online at a time that suits you, or our team are just a phone call away should you need any assistance. 

We'll typically need the following information: 

  • Business address and postcode 
  • When you would like your new energy deal to start 
  • Energy meter numbers 

Most of the information you need will be on your recent bill. 

4. Switch With Confidence 

There's no obligation to switch energy suppliers with us. We'll help you find great energy deals that can secure your prices against any potential price increases. If you decide to switch with us, you can sit back and relax whilst we handle the process for you. 

How to find the best energy deal for your business

Switching business energy suppliers is super easy, but with energy prices surging, it can be difficult to understand what is a great deal. The good news is that your Energy Bill Relief Scheme will not be impacted when you switch energy supplier. 

The first step to getting cheaper business energy bills is understanding your energy bill. This will help guide your knowledge of what the business needs. You can then start to look at ways to increase energy efficiency.

Here are some of the things that can impact the price of your business energy quote:

  • Wholesale energy prices
  • The size and location of your business premises
  • Sector and business activity
  • Credit ratings
  • Annual consumption

What can affect your business energy quote? 

The energy market can be highly volatile and multiple factors can impact the price you pay for your energy usage. Here are some reasons you could be paying more or less for your commercial energy contract: 

  • The size of your business - larger consumption businesses pay more annually for their energy usage but will get discounted unit rates. Businesses with lower consumption will pay higher unit rates. 
  • Your energy tariffs - there are a wide range of tariffs that have different price models - for example, Economy 7/ 10 (cheaper rates at night), no standing charge tariffs and green business energy tariffs will all pay different rates. Each one has its benefits depending on how your company uses gas and electricity. 
  • Energy suppliers - whilst generally guided by wholesale market prices, different business energy suppliers will have different pricing models making some more expensive than others. 
  • Wholesale market prices - the wholesale market is always changing, and suppliers will use this as a guideline for their pricing models. Significant world events, weather and other factors can impact the wholesale market, and the prices will be adjusted accordingly. 

Most of the factors are out of your control. However, there are things you can do that is within your control to save money on business electricity and gas. Having all your usage information and understanding how you use energy will ensure you're getting an accurate quote, so there are no surprises down the road. 


What business energy tariffs are available? 

Compare fixed-rate tariffs

A fixed-rate tariff is one of the most popular business energy deals. On this tariff, you will agree on a fixed unit price for both gas and electricity with your business energy supplier. You can lock an agreed price in from 1 year up to 5 years. Wholesale market prices may cause business energy suppliers to only offer shorter-term deals.

Compare green energy tariffs

For those businesses who want to reduce their carbon footprint, a green tariff is an attractive business energy tariff. Many business energy suppliers already offer green tariffs as standard, so it's worth shopping around for an energy contract that suits your business.

Compare variable rate tariffs

Variable rate tariffs can be a good option for businesses that want to benefit from any reductions in the price of business energy. 

This is a good option if you expect prices to decrease soon.

Each tariff type offers its benefits, from fixed costs over a certain period to renewably sourced energy. Before you compare business energy tariffs, you should understand what business energy contract you're currently on, how much energy you use annually and how much you could save if you become more energy efficient.


What are the average business energy bill prices?  

A changing market makes it difficult to understand what you should be paying to your current energy supplier. However, every quarter GOV.UK releases the average business energy prices per kWh based on business size. Here are those figures:

 

Business size Electricity Price Per kWh Including CCL Gas Price Per kWh (Including CCL*)
Micro business 22.43p 7.60p
Small business  21.04p 4.47p
Medium business  18.47p 4.37p

Are business energy prices rising?

Average business energy prices have been rising for the past 10 years. However, we started to see a sharp increase in the prices of business energy contracts in quarter 3 of 2021. This is a direct result of rising wholesale energy prices caused by several global events.

A new business support scheme has been announced and will provide a discount on your business energy bills between October 2022 and March 2023.

When will business energy prices come down?

We shouldn't expect the market to stabilise anytime soon. There are various predictions, but nobody can say for sure. Many predictions believe that business energy rates will continue to be high well into 2024.

Many owners and office managers are choosing to fix their business energy tariffs for peace of mind in a market that could see prices increase at any time.

Large Business Energy & High-Volume Consumption

Our experts will take the time to understand your operations, challenges and requirements to help us determine the right services for our large commercial customers.

If you're considered a large business customer by your supplier, you can head to our meter installations page.

Am I eligible for any discounts? 

Charities and non-profits are eligible for a 5% discount on their business energy bills, reduced from the full rate of 20%. 

Some large and independent business energy suppliers offer a discount to their direct debit customers.

What Is The Energy Price Cap? 

The energy price cap is set by the regulator Ofgem. This does not apply to business customers, and it limits the maximum amount energy suppliers can charge domestic customers for their unit rates. 

What Is the Climate Change Levy (CCL)? 

The Climate Change Levy is an environmental tax on all businesses that use energy. This levy encourages better energy efficiency. Any UK business can join the Climate Change Agreement Scheme to pay reduced rates.

Climate Change Levy (CCL) Rates:

Taxable commodity Electricity (£ per kilowatt hour (kWh) Gas (£ per kWh)
Rate from 1 April 2022 0.00775 0.00568
Rate from 1 April 2023 0.00775 0.00672
Rate from 1 April 2024 0.00775 0.00775

Business Energy FAQs

  • Will my business energy supply be affected if I switch suppliers?

    Switching business energy suppliers is a simple process, and you will not lose access to gas and electricity. When you switch energy suppliers, you're only changing who manages your supply. All the cables and pipes will remain the same.

  • What if I have multiple business premises?

    You can combine your business energy onto one bill using a multi-site meter. This means you can control the gas and electricity bills on one energy contract across multiple buildings. 

    Multi-site meters are great for helping business owners save time and money without the hassle of switching multiple energy contracts.

  • What is the difference between domestic and business energy?

    There are a few differences between a domestic and business energy contract. First of all, business energy contracts are much stricter, and the exit fees are much higher.

    A business energy supplier will purchase the exact amount of gas and electricity they're expected to need for each business energy contract. As the energy consumption is much higher with businesses, the energy supplier would lose money if businesses cancelled early without paying. 

    It is much easier to switch domestic energy as the consumption is much lower, and contracts tend to be rolling after a fixed-rate deal has ended.

  • Do Business Energy Tariffs Offer A Dual Fuel Option?

    Dual fuel tariffs are for domestic customers only. Businesses must switch their gas and electricity separately. 

    Businesses can have the same supplier for both fuels, but they must be switched separately. You may be able to negotiate a better energy deal with the supplier if you decide to have a contract for both.
