Compare electricity

When you move to new business premises your business energy provider will automatically put you onto a high electricity tariff. This high tariff is called a deemed rate because a contract is deemed to exist between you and the current electricity supplier of that premises. Stay on this 'deemed rate' and you could be paying a lot more for your electricity than if you switched suppliers. Shop around and compare business electricity providers and you can take advantage of lower electricity prices straight away.

Why compare electricity prices?

Even if you haven't recently moved business premises and have been with the same electricity provider for some time, you could still save money by comparing electricity suppliers. What was a good rate when you signed up some time ago may no longer be the most competitive rate on the market. Even if you have a small business, selecting the most competitively priced electricity supplier could save you a significant amount of money.

If you're a new business and you stick to the high deemed rate you're automatically put on with your new premises, you could be paying hundreds of extra pounds on your electricity each year. It's quick and simple to compare business electricity prices, and switching could dramatically reduce your electricity bill.

How do I compare business electricity prices?

At British Gas we can provide a competitive business electricity quote. Simply enter your details online and we'll calculate our most competitive quote. Compare this to your current annual spend and you'll quickly see how much you could save on your electricity bill by making British Gas your business electricity supplier. If you have more than one business premises we can provide a fast multi-site quote. Enter the details of each site into our online multi-site calculator and we'll provide independent costs for each site within one clear and simple quote.

We're confident we can help you reduce your electricity costs, but to reassure you that our rates are our most competitive, why not compare our prices with other business electricity suppliers. You can do this by using third-party comparison websites, or by getting a quote through each electricity provider's homepage. When comparing business electricity prices, it's a good idea to create a spreadsheet so that you can track the different electricity quotes and clearly see who offers the cheapest electricity rates for your business.
