Why use an energy broker?
An energy broker can help secure the best value contract for your business by comparing offers from a wide range of suppliers, which can be a time consuming process for a client. Brokers can quite often negotiate more competitive offers than are available by going direct to a supplier. They deal with account queries direct with suppliers to ensure clients are free to work within their own business. In addition to this, a broker can provide a range of other services such as bill validation, data analysis and energy management services, site works & metering.

How long does a business energy switch take?
Unlike in the domestic market a business cannot switch immediately unless you are not currently in a contract* As a result the time it takes to switch will be entirely dependent on your current contract end date. The physical process of ‘registration’ with your new supplier can only commence 28 days in advance of your current contract end date. In the majority of instances your switch will then go live the day after your current contract ends. *Your business will not be in a fixed term contract if: You have recently moved into a premises and have not agreed a contract with an energy supplier You have provided the correct termination notice to your supplier but have not left their supply following your contract end date
