Just like domestic energy, the best rates are usually offered to new customers.

This contract might not offer the best value for you, so it’s important to shop around.

If you’ve never switched business energy before, you might think it’s similar to switching your domestic energy – something many people do on a yearly basis to save money.
While there are some similarities, there are also some key differences:
1. You can’t compare and switch business energy online. While the whole domestic energy switching process can be done online on a site like Uswitch, it’s a slightly different process for businesses. Thankfully with Uswitchforbusiness you can start the process online and we’ll do all the hard work for you. Once you’ve submitted your information online, we’ll contact you to help you find the cheapest business electricity and gas for your needs.
2. Business energy contracts are longer. Household energy contracts tend to last for 12-18 months, while commercial energy contracts can last for up to five years. That means you can fix your business energy prices for longer and don’t have to shop around as regularly.
3. Business gas and electricity is separate. While many households use the same supplier for gas and electricity, there’s no such thing as a dual fuel tariff for commercial energy. We'll help you to compare business electric suppliers as well as gas suppliers.
