Business energy comparison sites: Why are they useful?
The problems with switching without a business energy comparison site
Energy comparison sites came into fruition after an Ofgem investigation found that a lack of competition within the UK energy market meant that suppliers were able to drive prices up. This was resulting in a market with very few alternatives for consumers.
Third Party Intermediary sites (TPI’s), like Exchange Utility, evolved to combat this problem by creating higher levels of transparency for business customers. This means that UK energy suppliers have to be more competitive with their pricing in order to win your custom.
So why bother with the stress when there are simple tools that can compare the best rates for your business?

Why are business energy comparison sites useful?
Energy comparison sites and other switching services certainly have their place in the UK.
Pretty much everyone will compare when they are looking for the best deal on anything, including: energy, mobile phones, internet connections, clothes, cars and insurance – why wouldn’t you? Comparison sites are a fantastic way to find a great deal on what you’re looking for!
Here’s just a couple of the reasons to choose a new gas, electricity or water contract using a business energy comparison site:
Compare a variety of suppliers in one search
Using an energy comparison site provides your business with easy access to prices from a range of UK energy suppliers.

Switching using an energy comparison site saves time and money
Switching supplier without an energy comparison site can be incredibly costly, time consuming and stressful. Comparing without a TPI would mean that you have to bounce from supplier to supplier, gathering the best rates so that you can then review them and select your favoured option.
This comparison method can become extremely drawn out. It’s also far too easy to get bombarded by jargon and calls from each supplier’s hungry sales team.

Reduce your business energy overheads with energy comparison sites
Using energy comparison sites can be an effective way to reduce your gas, electricity and water bills. As previously mentioned, suppliers are aware that their rates will be lined up right next to their competitors, therefore, they are more likely to offer a better rate so that they can stand out.
Energy comparison sites make it easy for you to review your options and identify the best prices that are available so you can save money.
If you haven’t chosen a new contract in a number of years, it is likely that you’ve rolled onto a standard rate tariff (which is usually the most expensive rate). If this has happened, don’t panic! We can look into some alternative tariffs for you with the view to drive your costs down and make sure you’re on the best available rates.
It is estimated that 1,200,000 UK businesses are overpaying their energy supplier – Some by up to 80% – Competition Markets Authority
