Large Business Energy Users 

Large consumption users of commercial energy can often have specific requirements. With greater buying power, comes a slightly more complicated process when energy management software, meter installations and other requirements become a factor. 

At Power Compare, our experts will listen to your complex needs, and then help you find the right supplier and a great deal for your next contract.

If you require a half-hourly meter or multi-site metering, we can help your business find a tariff that fits the exact requirements of your business.

Small Business Energy - Simplified 

We know that small and start-up business owners want to avoid large overhead costs as much as possible.

Selecting the right energy tariff as a small business can help you manage your costs.

With our comparison engine, you can view business energy tariffs from our panel of trusted suppliers. You will be able to view live business energy prices in just 30 seconds. Once you’ve chosen a tariff, check out entirely online.

What Do You Need For An Accurate Business Energy Quote? 

  1. Get your basic business information ready – like address, postcode, and info on your energy usage. You’ll find all this info on your most recent bill – no need to faff around.
  2. Find your meter registration numbers – your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) and Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) should be on your latest energy bill. But no hassle if not – our intelligent comparison engine can often find them for you. 
  3. Terminate your contracts – you have to switch gas and electricity separately, so deal with all of your business energy comparison at the same time. This lets you lock in unit prices for the same time periods and stops providers from charging you sky-high out-of-contract rates. We'll be able to do this for you with your signed permission. 

Remember, rates change daily and you could be paying more or less for your commercial energy contract for several reasons. Like the size of your operation, the tariff you’re on, the supplier you use and the way they work out pricing models according to changes in wholesale market prices.

There’s a lot we can’t predict. But being willing to switch is a powerful first step to taking control.
