Almost all of the UK's domestic electricity suppliers offer business electricity tariffs. This means you'll have a lot of options to choose between. To make things easier, you should have a think about what type of tariff you want:
Fixed rate tariffs will lock in a certain price for your electricity for the duration of the contract. Importantly it's the unit price (that's the rate per kWh) that will stay fixed, not your monthly bill - but this still helps keep your costs steady and predictable. Rates can be fixed for up to 5 years in some cases.
With flexible tariffs, the unit price for your electricity will be subject to change dependent on the market price at the time. This means that your costs could go down during the course of your tariff, but they could also go up. One key benefit of flexible tariffs is that they can be cancelled with 30 days' notice.
Finding a new supplier for your business electricity with usave takes just a few minutes. Once you've chosen a tariff, the rest of the switch will be managed for you.
We'll show you tariffs from several of the UK's top electricity suppliers. We regularly have access to exclusive deals and tariffs not available elsewhere.
You'll have access to a dedicated account manager who can guide you through any issues you have with the switching process or with your new plan.
The price you'll pay for your business electricity supply is made up of three components:
Price per kWh (Unit Price)
The basic cost of any tariff is the unit price. Quite simply, this is how much you'll pay for a single unit of electricity, which is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh).
The standing charge is a flat fee that you pay for your electricity supply, usually charged on a daily basis. It tends to be a nominal fee, and some contracts wont charge one at all.
Climate Change Levy (CCL)
The CCL is an environmental tax that business pay based on the energy they use. More energy efficient businesses will pay a smaller CCL.
