What can big energy users learn from savvy domestic shoppers
Shop aroundShopping around is unquestionably the best way to save money on domestic and non-domestic energy bills. It pays to visit as many suppliers as possible and search out the best price. Or, if you are a large energy user, you might prefer to enlist a professional energy broker to search around for the best deal for you.
Monitor the market regularlyIn order to get the best deal, savvy family buyers monitor the market continuously to check that they are getting the best deal. The ‘constantly compare and save’ feature on MoneySavingExpert.com’s Cheap Energy Club is an easy way of automating this process. Larger energy users, meanwhile, would be better signing up with an energy broker, which will regularly check the market for them and negotiate a new contract every year.
Use the right tools for the jobThere are all sorts of online tools for saving money on energy. For domestic energy customers, energy switching sites represent a fantastic way for smaller buyers to search the entire market in seconds. For larger energy users, however, the market is more complicated. And off-the-shelf solutions are rarely good enough for individual business needs. These users should use a professional service with in-depth market knowledge to scour the market for them.
Choose your switching service carefullyIn this video below, aimed at domestic energy customers, MoneySavingExpert.com’s Martin Lewis explains that some price comparison websites will hide the best deals and instead prefer to offer you ‘sponsored’ deals from their partners. A similar thing happens in the energy brokerage sector for large energy users. Some energy brokers work closely with certain suppliers and push their deals even though they might not be the best for the end-user.
