Transparent business electricity comparison

Simplifying electricity procurement for your business

For businesses that haven’t switched commercial energy suppliers, comparing electricity prices is the best place to start to reduce costs. However, even those companies who have switched to contract rates can save money through monitoring and improving energy efficiency.

Here at Sustainable Business Services, we can work with our cross-market, trusted, supply relationships to select the most appropriate, competitive tariff and supplier to you.

What makes up my business electricity bill?

Your business electricity price is broken down into two main charging elements, your unit rate (£per kWh) and standing charges.

Your unit rate is the price you pay for each unit of electricity you use. This is charged in pence per kWh (kilo watt hour).

Your standing charge is a set daily charge paid regardless of if or how much electricity you use. This charge covers the supplier cost to deliver the supply to your premises. Typically, between 5p-60p per day.

What are the different business elecricity tariffs?

Your business needs are unique to you, whether your an SME business with relatively low usage, to a large manufacturing firm with several sites and significant usage. There is no shortage of tariff options offered by all suppliers, each having its own benefits from fixed rate tariffs, variable tariffs to the ever-growing range of renewable energy green tariffs.
