Learn more about business electricity

To work out your annual electricity rates, your supplier will estimate how much energy your business will need, based upon the type of work it does and the size of its premises.

The table below should give you a rough idea of how much electricity your business should be using, and how much you should be paying in standing charges and unit costs.

Business Size Average annual usage (kWh) Average price (per kWh) Standing charge (daily) Average annual price
Micro business 5,000 - 15,000 kWh 13.2p - 14.5p 23p - 27p £650 - £1,800
Small business 15,000 - 30,000 kWh 12.4p - 14.1p 23p - 27p £1,900 - £2,900
Medium-sized business 30,000 - 50,000 kWh 12.2p - 13.3p 23p - 27p £3,300 - £5000

Business electricity tariffs are usually set up for a fixed term of between one and five years, and because all businesses have different electricity requirements, it makes sense to tailor your tariff to meet your specific needs.

If, for example, you have a number of electricity meters across multiple sites, you could be better off taking out a multi-site energy plan that puts them all on the one tariff. But if you only have a couple of sites to consider, it might be more cost effective to have them on separate plans.

If you run a large business, or one with a high consumption rate, you should have a half-hourly electricity meter installed. These meters relay accurate usage information to your supplier every 30 minutes, and saves the hassle of potentially inaccurate estimates, which could see you paying for more electricity than you're actually using.

The average business will use more electricity than the average home, and this higher demand means corporate customers can often negotiate better rates.

On the flipside, a higher demand coupled with rising wholesale electricity prices, as well as environmental levies and taxes, mean it's easy to rack up big electricity bills. And you need to be especially switched on when your contracts come up for renewal - if you don't agree a new deal with your current supplier, or negotiate a better one with a new supplier, you'll be rolled onto an expensive rate, and may even be tied in for another year.

But finding the right deal for your business can take time, effort and no shortage of know-how - and that's where we can help.

Our team of energy experts will not only look to get you the best deal, they'll also offer advice on how to give termination notice to your current electricity provider and deal with any supplier objections that might arise.

Just let us know a few details about your business and its energy use, either online or over the phone, to run a business electricity comparison. In getting the best deal for your business, we'll not just consider the cost, but other important factors, such as online billing, customer service and how meter readings are delivered.

Once we find an electricity plan that meets your needs and budget, we'll take you through each step of the switching process to ensure a hassle-free move.

And the best part is our service is 100% impartial and completely free, so you can be sure we're working in the best interests of your business and that there'll be no hidden fees.
