Southern electric business offers tariffs and prices for both electricty and gas supplies for all businesses whether your own a small business a large corporation on even what is termed a specialist micro business. It's a little harder to get quotes for this company as you can't simply enter your details online and get instant rates.
This organisation is part of the larger Scottish and Southern group of companies that also own SWALEC for energy in Wales and well as Scottish Power. Unlike their consumer division where you can enter your postcode and get instant prices for their various tariff options as a business user you have to email them your meter number and postcode and they will get back to you in a couple of days with a quote.
Although this is much slower than the other main energy providers in the UK you should attempt to get a quote for tariffs because they may be able to offer you some good deals. If you are short of time then you may want to ask a professional broker who know what rates Southern Electric would offer your type of business and see what they can come up with in a tariff that's suitable for your circumstances.
Although there is no particular information on the rates and prices on their website you can be assured that they offer you similar set up as the other main energy providers for business customers. This means you will be offered a fixed term contract with fixed prices for the duration of any contract you may sign. This is standard across all business contracts and there is no variable pricing for most smaller type businesses.
You can switch supplier if you are able to terminate your current contract with your current supplier's tariff and trying to switch if you are still under contract and you can't terminate within a few months may not be the best use of your time.
The best way to see what rates and tariffs may be offered for your business is to give them a call because the form on their website to start the quoting process requires a lot of detailed information which in reality you don't need to provider. So give their account team a call on their customer services number for more information.
