Whatever the size or nature of your business, you’ll need an electricity tariff that’s going to suit you. This guide will help you find the best deal for your business (24/8/09).
When it comes to choosing an electricity tariff for your business, there are lots of options available. The UK’s biggest energy suppliers, British Gas, EDF, E.ON, npower, Scottish Power, and Scottish & Southern Energy, all have tariffs designed specifically for business customers, and other small suppliers, such as EBICO and first:utility also offer competitive business electricity prices.
In the same way that domestic customers are free to compare prices and switch to a cheaper supplier, business customers can also choose the best deal for their needs. Our guide to business electricity suppliers will help you choose the best deal for your company, no matter what its size.
