1. Remember to terminate your contract
If you have decided to switch your business energy, you need to terminate your contract before it comes to an end. Failure to terminate in time means your supplier will place you on a rollover contract. These are expensive contracts and prices will rise significantly.
Suppliers are not required to send renewal letters to businesses, unless you’re a microbusiness.
2. Locate Meter Registration Numbers
Quotes will be more accurate if you provide your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) or Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) for each meter. You will need to provide them for all company buildings if relevant. These number can be found on any recent invoice from your supplier.
3. Information About Your Company

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I switch business energy suppliers?
Businesses use a lot more energy than households, so it is important to keep costs under control. Compare business energy suppliers to save hundreds of pounds each year. Many businesses use the money saved to reinvest in other parts of the business.
Do business energy tariffs offer dual fuel option?
Business energy suppliers do not offer dual fuel tariffs. You will need to switch your business electricity and gas contract separately. They can be easily managed if you switch both at them at the same time for the same contract length. This allows you to keep track of the contract end date.
What types of business energy tariffs are available?
Businesses are on one of five types of tariffs:
- Variable-rate tariffs – on this tariff, the price of energy is determined by market activity. This means that prices can increase and decrease at any time.

- Fixed-rate tariffs – this tariff fixes the price of your energy. This means that you will pay one consistent cost per unit (kWh). Your bill will still be affected by the businesses level of usage. The more energy the business uses, the higher the bill.
- Deemed-rate tariff – these are commonly known out-of-contract tariffs. These are rolling contracts with expensive rates. This is when no contract has been formally agreed.
- Rollover contract – This is when no alternative contract has been agreed before your current one ends. These are usually the suppliers most expensive rates and should be avoided.
- 28-day contract – These are less common. Only businesses who have never switched their business energy supplier since the market deregulation are on this type of contract.

Switching business energy supplier takes 4-6 weeks. The process can be delayed if you have not supplied all the information needed to your new supplier.
