Business electricity rates comparison complicated by baffling price structures.
The 21st Century makes great demands on us all. These days, we seem to have less time in which we are asked to do more than ever. Similarly, once-upon-a-time our choices of energy supply for our business was fairly standard – principally one choice, in fact. However deregulation has lead to competition between the various suppliers, who themselves offer a range of business electricity rates and deals for comparison, containing endless shifting variables. If we don’t like the deal we are on, we are told we can simply “switch”… but how, and to whom? It’s like the check-out queue in the supermarket… the one next to you always looks to be moving faster but do you jump, only to find the one you were in is now moving ever more swiftly?

Consumer bible Which? recently conducted a consumer survey of 1000 people, to see how many could pick the best deal from a choice of six electricity tariffs. 60% got the answer wrong and 32% said they just didn't know. Only a staggering 8% managed to choose the right one. The results, at least, are crystal clear. Richard Lloyd, Executive Director of Which? commented “many consumers are struggling with ever-increasing energy bills and people tell us it is one of their biggest financial worries. With so few people able to identify the cheapest deal it’s no surprise that the majority are paying over the odds for their gas and electricity.” The natural conclusion, of course, is that energy companies should simplify their pricing structure.
