E.ON Energy can supply business users with electricity and gas supplies on fixed term, and fixed rate contracts. Previously known as Powergen, it's part of the world's largest investor-owner energy company. You can access their "direct" tariff from their website to get online quotes. These prices are often cheaper than you can obtain from brokers.
You can choose a one year or three year fixed priced electricity and gas contract from E.ON Energy with the prices guaranteed until the end of your contract terms. You'll get an additional discount if you pay by fixed monthly direct debit as well. You can get an instant online quote via E.ON's website to see how their prices compare with your current energy supplier.
There are currently no guarantees to beat their competitor's pricing structure. E.ON should be one of the energy suppliers you get a quote from just to compare their prices against the other big six providers such as British Gas.
To get a quote from E.ON is easy. You can choose to use their website or give their account management specialists a call who can help your through the entire process. If you decide to get an online quote all you need is your postcode (and from this you will select your address details). Then enter your electricity meter number (this begins with an "S" and is also known as an MPAN number) and your gas meter number also known as an MPR number.
To help get an accurate quote, you're also asked to enter any consumption data you may have. You don't even need to enter your email address to receive a quotation.
If you are happy with the rates provided then switching is really easy. E.ON Energy will prepare and process all your paperwork on your behalf and ensure the switch over to them is fast and easy. Just remember to take meter readings on the day of the switching so that your invoices from your current supplier and E.ON are totally accurate from the day you move companies.
One of the key elements in running a business, apart from getting the cheapest rates per kWh, is to attempt to reduce the consumption of the energy at all the premises and offices you own.
E.ON provides loads of advice on their website and via their account team that aims to reduce your energy consumption by at least 10% per year and perhaps even as high as 20% per year. They also offer an advanced analytics service where the data sent from your half hourly meter feeds into a software service called eData.
Here you can view and analyse your consumption daily by hour. You can see, for example, if your usage is high during the night time after your offices close, and no one is working. Access to this essential data could save your business a lot of money just by knowing how much energy you are using at any one time.
The cheapest available prices for E.ON business customers are available through their website quotation service, and if you pay by fixed monthly direct debit then the savings can be even greater. Check out the E.ON business website or speak to a specialist broker who can do all of this for you.
