Guaranteed energy savings for your business

With a wide range of business customers already served, our highly trained telephone advisors will find the package to suit you. Many business owners switch without discovering the full range of options available for commercial energy users.

We honour The Utilities Intermediaries Association code of practice for our specialist B2B system that accesses and compares the latest price information online. At Commercial Electricity, we're an independent broker and list the results in the order of the amount of savings you'll receive. The impartial service does not favour one supplier over another.

Six reasons to compare electricity prices

If you've never looked at a business price comparison site before, then your energy costs are likely too high. By comparing and switching, we can save your company thousands of pounds. Put your loyalty to one side and see just how much your business can save.

  • Are you looking for ways to minimise your energy costs?
  • Have you seen your business gas and electric contracts increase in recent years?
  • Would you like to add more value to your business profits?
  • Do you want to save time and money on your utility bills?
  • Did you know the smaller energy providers are often cheaper?
  • How about making savings of up to 70% on your current renewal offer?

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", then we can help.

Tip: All renewal letters are higher than the cheapest tariffs. You'll need to terminate your current agreement to take advantage of reduced rates, but we can do that for you.

Avoid expensive out of contract tariffs

Most power contracts naturally roll-forward on renewal rates for another fixed term, but if you formally terminate your agreement and don't switch to an alternative supplier, your rates automatically move onto out of contract tariffs.

Out of contract electricity rates by most popular supplier

Company Daily Fee Unit Price Yearly Bill
Standard Tariff 24p 12.10p/ kWh £3,112.60
SSE 16.57p 17.17p/ kWh £4,352.98
E.ON 83p 17.66p/ kWh £4,717.95
EDF 50p 20.20p/ kWh £5,232.50
Npower 86.24p 29.24p/ kWh £7,624.77
ScottishPower 46p 16.00p/ kWh £4,169.70
British Gas 34.19p 19.81p/ kWh £5,077.29

The average bills calculated above are for a medium-sized organisation with a consumption of 25,000 kWh per annum. The charges related to meters with 03 or 04 profile classes. Charges for larger customers including half hourly meters are far higher.

Your guide to finding the optimum market prices

The energy giants want you to renew at higher rates because these are at least 30% greater than if you receive a quote from one of their competitors. Even if we provide rates from your current supplier, they'll be lower than your renewal letter!

We've saved some industrial-sized companies hundreds of thousands of pounds per year, just by auditing their current invoices, meters, and consumption efficiency. This process always led to lower their overall kilowatt hour unit rates.

We also take care of all the formalities for you. Our customer advisors and professional commercial utility brokers are here to help should you have any concerns about switching.

1. How do I switch my electricity provider?

Choosing a new commercial electricity supplier

Select the tariff that offers the best deal for you by using our comparison calculator. Uncover all the information about the suppliers and tariffs on the results page. You can search by price, customer service rating or green options.

You can choose from the following companies: British Gas, CNG, Corona, E.ON, EDF, Npower, Opus, SSE, Scottish Hydro, ScottishPower, Shell Gas, or Total Energy.

Once you've chosen your new tariff, provide us with your consumption data that forms the basis of your contract. We'll pass these to your new supplier who'll then arrange the switch.

You'll be sent an email to confirm the details of the switch and a contact point for your new supplier.

Within four weeks of your application, you'll receive a resource transfer date for the start of your new supply. You should take a meter reading and send it to your new and current supplier for an accurate transfer and calculate your final bill.

2. Will there be any interruption to my supply?

Energy supplies to businesses when switching

No, there'll be no interruption at all. There's no need to change any meters, wires or pipes as you'll still use the same infrastructure. The only difference you'll notice is a lower bill.

3. If I want a Direct Debit tariff, do you need my personal details?

No, you can request a paper Direct Debit form that your new supplier will post to you. You can then fill out your bank information and return it to them in your own time. In any event, we would recommend that you complete Direct Debit forms online on our secure servers as this will save you time in the long run.

4. How can I save as much money as possible?

Select the tariff you're on with your current supplier. Enter your figures into the calculator and submit your search with the default settings. Your quotes show all options with the cheapest tariff listed at the top of the results table. You'll see the savings made against your current contract clearly displayed.

Also take advantage of our consulting team that can help implement energy efficiency programmes, ensure your invoices are accurate and check you have the correct meters installed. Our experts can help reduce the consumption of lighting and heating systems, investigate renewable energy solutions and waste less overall.

5. I'm not sure who my current supplier is; how do I find out?

A recent fuel bill shows the name of your current supplier.

6. What is my electricity meter number (or MPAN)?

Meter number (MPAN)

Your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) is the unique identifying number of the electric meter at your property. The sequence often referred to as a "Resource Number" or "S" number, is printed on your utility bill or meter. If you can't locate your number, you should contact your supplier. We have a unique system on the site that looks up your meter number automatically for 98% of UK addresses.

Contact Transco's Meter Number Helpline on 0870 608 1524 to find your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) for gas.

Our promise to you

By switching from your current deal, you can save up to 60% on your costs. If you haven't looked at your prices for more than one year, then you're guaranteed to make savings even though the wholesale price has increased.
