Commercial gas prices and contracting may vary depending on the type of business enquiring, and their general usage patterns and preferences. Shops and other small business owners with fixed opening hours may be able to benefit from cheaper commercial contracts, provided they can stay within the minimum usage limit specified in their contract.
Businesses generally must pay for gas based on a combination of three factors: how much gas you use; when you use it (time of day); and where your premises are located. Many firms will have the same type of energy tariff but may have different rates from each other because their circumstances differ slightly – such as the time at which they need to use energy or the locations of their premises. For example, a firm that operates a 24-hour store will have higher costs than a shop that closes down between midnight and 8 am every night. If a contract is not flexible enough to allow a firm to lower its costs when demand is low, then your business will be paying more than it needs to.
So, how do we make sure that we avoid this? Well, your business will need to consider all of these factors when entering into a new contract. Contracts are often for an initial fixed period – usually a year, but sometimes three years or five years – and then can be renewed on similar terms (often at a slightly lower rate). Shops that close down over the weekend could find themselves with one of two types of energy tariff: one that is significantly cheaper, because they use less energy during those times; and another which is almost as expensive as their rates are Monday to Thursday. Shops should carefully consider the options available and avoid signing up for unnecessarily high bills by opting for tariffs that do not match their usage patterns.
A key factor in most negotiations is ensuring that your firm does not enter into any contracts without being clear on the guidelines of each one. For example, if you have a cooling-off period in place in case you change your mind.
