How do I find the best business electricity tariff?

There are many business electricity tariffs on offer to UK businesses, whether an SME or large multi-sited enterprise. What is right for your business will depend upon factors specific to you.

That could be certainty in locking down the price or using renewable energy sources. Here is a selection of business tariffs available:

  • Fixed-rate tariffs Fixed-rate electricity tariffs protect businesses from price increases for the period of the contract. A fixed-rate tariff is a great choice when market prices are low. Locking in cheap business electricity for a period can not only generate significant savings but will help you to budget effectively.
  • Variable-rate tariffs Variable-rate electricity tariffs offer great flexibility when it comes to the monthly payment. If current business electricity rates are high, then locking in a fixed rate tariff may not be the best option for you. Particularly if you do not want to commit to a longer term as variable rate contracts can be cancelled with 30 days’ notice.
  • Green energy tariffs If carbon footprint is important to your business, then switching to a green energy tariff using sustainable energy sources could be right for you. Green energy tariffs need not cost more than other tariffs and can help you meet your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets.
