It's Surprisingly Easy to Switch Electricity & Gas Provider

The average business is able to save £100s or even £1,000s per year on energy bills simply by changing energy supplier.

It doesn't usually make sense to stay with the same supplier, because you will be put on an expensive out of contract rate.

The best rates are reserved for new customers, which is why it's important to switch whenever possible.

Business energy tariffs also often have different terms and conditions than domestic tariffs, such as a minimum contract period and extra charges for things like meter readings and extra capacity.

What is a multi-site energy meter?

A multi-site energy meter is a device that allows businesses with multiple locations to monitor and manage their energy usage.

It allows businesses to view and analyse energy usage data from each of their sites on a single platform, helping them to identify areas where they can reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency.
