When it comes to electricity and gas, the summer is a good time to fix your business energy prices before the start of autumn/winter.
With uncertainty around energy prices, the general thinking is that market conditions and fears over Brexit will trigger further price increases as winter approaches.
Although it seems a long way away, with colder temperatures and fewer daylight hours, businesses use significantly more energy throughout winter. It’s a good idea to check prices during the summer to scout out a cheaper tariff available to you which will keep your energy bills in check for the long term.
The most obvious reason to commit to a price fix is the financial incentive. A fixed discount means not only a saving now, but can mean a guarantee that your prices will remain lower than the standard rate, even if your supplier puts their prices up.
