What to do with your business energy contract #UKENERGY
On Sunday 13th March 2022, James Coney, a journalist at The Times published an energy tariff test in which he very aptly describes the dilemma many are finding themselves in regarding their energy bills and knowing what steps to take next.
James said: “Question1. Geoff’s energy supplier says that the cost of using electricity and gas is about to go up.
He pays 20.68p for every kWh of electricity he uses and 4.169p for gas on a variable rate tariff. He also pays a daily standing charge of 24.112p for electricity and 26.123p for gas.
Next month he will start paying 28.455p per kWh of electricity and 7.479p for gas, and the standing charges will be 43.397p a day for electricity and 27.219p for gas.
How much has Geoff’s annual energy bill increased by to the nearest penny? (4 marks)”
In the following 2 questions James highlights a scenario that so many are accustomed to, and when they contact their supplier for a statement find themselves being offered a 1 year fixed rate (v11) tariff. However, when he tries to take the tariff, it is sold out but another more expensive offer (v12) is available but now it is a variable contract.
This example is from a real bill sent by an energy supplier, although this is most likely a domestic bill, the similarity is strikingly familiar as many businesses are currently wondering whether to stick or twist.
Due to the unprecedented situation in global energy markets today, energy suppliers are naturally cautious and do not want to give out anything that can be misconstrued as advice, but this doesn’t help consumers trying to make informed decisions.
