As a business owner, you’ll appreciate just how important it is to keep on top of your monthly costs – from rocketing rent to rising energy costs, spiralling overheads are a recipe for disaster!
Your electricity supply will be essential to the everyday running of your business, so it’s important to make sure you’re not overpaying on energy - finding the best deal on your business electricity is an easy way to cut your overheads and save money.
Finding the best energy deals for your business can be tricky – not only are there so many suppliers offering different tariffs, but business electricity prices are constantly fluctuating. And that’s why it makes sense to enlist the help of the business switching experts at UKPower – just one call is all it takes to take the time and hassle out of finding the best value deal for your business.
As well as helping you cut the cost of your business energy bills, our team will offer step-by-step advice at every part of the switching process, to make sure you don’t run into any problems, including help with cancelling your existing contract and solutions to any objections that might arise as a result of your decision to switch.
Although price will be paramount when finding a new deal, we’ll also make sure of other features that make life that little bit easier, like online billing and great customer service scores, so you can rest assured the supplier you choose is the absolute best for your business.
And we won’t charge your business a penny, as our service is completely free of charge.

Running a business energy price comparison isn’t quite as simple as running a domestic price comparison, not least because there is no dual fuel option, which means business owners have to get separate gas and electricity quotes from each individual supplier.
Although this means the tariff you choose will be designed to meet the exact needs of your business, it also means business comparisons are a little more time consuming, and it can be difficult to know if you’re actually on the best-priced tariff available – the only way to find out is to ring around every supplier for a quote.
Alternatively, one call to our business energy experts means we’ll do all the hard work for you, comparing quotes from a range of suppliers to make sure you’re getting the best energy deal at the best price.
But before you start comparing quotes, it’s always a good idea to see of how much energy a business the size of yours should be using, and how much you should be paying for your business electricity supply.
|Business Size||Average annual usage (kWh)||Average price (per kWh)||Standing charge (daily)||Average annual price|
|Micro business||5,000 - 15,000 kWh||12.5p||27.0p||£1,349|
|Small business||15,000 - 30,000 kWh||11.0p||25p||£2,566|
|Medium-sized business||30,000 - 50,000 kWh||10.5p||22.0p||£4,208|
When comparing electricity deals, you’ll be made aware of the different tariff types you can choose from, as well as the ones your supplier may have put you on, sometimes without you even realising.
Keep an eye out for the following tariffs:
There’s no one-size-fits all approach to business electricity bills. While some companies are better suited to fixed rate contracts, others prefer variable rate deals.
A fixed rate tariff locks in the price you pay, and protects you against any sudden increases in prices. On the other hand, a variable rate contract will benefit you if commercial electric prices fall. At UKPower, you can compare both fixed rate and variable rate tariffs, although we generally advise our customers to choose the former rather than the latter. Here’s why:
But, it’s worth noting that some companies are better suited to variable rates, so why not get in touch with one of our experts to find out more?
