Although most businesses have an electricity supply, some also need to keep their business gas prices to a minimum. We show you how to keep costs low on this essential energy source.
The market for commercial natural gas supplies is still extremely competitive in the UK. Like all utilities, you should calculate new unit rates on an annual basis to ensure you’re on the lowest available prices for your meter.
As with residential pricing you can opt for choosing dual fuel metered tariffs, although it’s best to get separate quotes also.
For a quick quote call our energy customer services team on 0800 690 6008 who have access to all broker-based options. UK suppliers offer fixed priced contracts for between one and five years.
Compare Business Gas Supplier Prices
|Supplier||Price per kWh||Daily Charge||Annual Cost|
Figures rounded to two decimal places. Prices shown for a postcode in the Midlands region for a small business using 7,500 kWh per year. Rates correct for August 2018 for a one-year fixed contract. Tariffs vary by region, business gas supplier, and could change at any time.
You may receive lower gas prices than these if you use more, pay via Direct Debit, are based in a different location, or select a dual fuel deal.
Our branded “Smart Zoning” allows SME and micro businesses to select the provider that’s most suitable for their circumstances. Larger organisations should consider trialing our unique “group buying” basket prices which are tendered each week.

How to Reduce Your Business Gas Rates Even Further
Much like the domestic market, business owners can reduce their costs even further by making small changes to the way they conduct their utility management.
Check Prices Each Year
Firstly, like all costs in a business, you should seek out new gas prices each year to ensure you’re on the most competitive tariffs. Much like electricity, you’ll be placed on a new fixed term contract, for at least one year, with fixed prices. Simply choose the tariffs that are most suitable for your business.
Seek Out Further Savings
Other ways to save money are to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit much like you do with your home expenditure. Direct Debit mandates can save you between 2% and 4% each year on your gas costs. These automated payments are easy to set up and monitor. Most of the major gas providers also provide additional discounts if you take both fuels as a dual fuel contract. Your Account Manager can help you with this.
The energy providers are also keen to reduce the amount of fuel your business consumes each year. They can provide help and guidance if you’re willing to work with them. Their energy efficiency advisers can help you save on gas consumption by around 10% each year, which reduces the amount your business spends each year.
