Comparing Energy Prices

It would be nice to know you have the cheapest energy supplier. It would also be nice to get up to go for a run pre-work or to always have matching socks available. You can try, you can google, but most of the time for most of us, these are things that get half-arsed, and we end up slightly lethargic, guilty, and overpaying on our energy bills.

You really don’t have to live like this though! It really is possible to save over £800 on your business’s energy bills. Let that sink in for a moment. What would that money mean to you? Really? Smell the sun cream yet?

So how do you save this much? Let’s go on a little journey.

The reason why gas costs so much in the first place is… well it’s complicated. Some of it makes sense, and a lot of it is made up nonsense, but the long and short is that your gas supplier is going to work out how much they are going to charge you based on:

  • Location 
  • Consumption  
  • Date of Contract Start 
  • Broker Commission 
  • Standing Charges 
  • Unit Price 
  • Meter Costs 
  • Installation Costs 
  • Maintenance and Servicing 
  • ‘New Customer’ Status 

And some other stuff too, but let’s be real, you read location and skipped the rest. It’s not important anyway; don’t worry about it. This is essentially a postcode lottery. Let’s focus on the saving money bit, not why you are spending it.

Imagine all the above factors are types of Lego blocks. Working out who is the cheapest for you is kind of like taking all your Lego blocks and seeing what kind of house is most suitable to build from them.

Depending on the specific circumstances of your business, you will have, say, 5 “Location” blocks and 9 “Unit Price” blocks. This means that your blocks are most suitable for making a Helicopter (if a helicopter were British Gas for example).

There are around 60 gas suppliers in the UK, so this is kind of a big job.

In order to demonstrate the utter insanity that is energy contract pricing, we (at Energy Solutions) have concocted the table below. Using all of the data available to us we have calculated (using real, genuine prices) which supplier offers the best prices in three main categories. 

We have split up the table into three sections: The supplier at hand, the particular area of dominance, and the description of the charge.  

Supplier Area of Dominance Description 
EDF Energy Online Annual Cost This is the estimated total cost for the year.  
EDF Energy Online Unit Price The price per unit of energy consumed.  
Utilita Energy Standing Charge Fixed cost per day of supply. 

Based on s small business in London with AQ of 75,000 kWH,
paying by DD, single rate 03 meter, and start date of 1/6/21

Something else to remember:

 I know I just grabbed the names British Gas and EDF here to make a point, but going with one of “The Big Six” does not guarantee you to get the best prices, and it defiantly doesn’t mean you’ll get messed around less!
