Are SMEs Adverse To Changing Energy Suppliers?

April 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Whilst the larger organisations are switched on to managing their energy costs and even improving upon their energy efficiency, by reducing their consumption levels, can the same be levelled at the sme market?

As many smaller businesses are owner-managed, they are responsible for many aspects of the business. Unfortunately, they see that renewal letter for their energy rate and set it to one side for a later date. The all too common mistake, as discussed in our ‘about us‘ section. The larger a business the more likely they are to have a department to deal with such matters.

There are options to them if they don’t wish to take on the responsibility themselves. Comparison websites will still require you to do the work. Many people will not know what details they should be entering, often using just their monthly direct debit figure. This doesn’t reflect their actual annual consumption, which will give greater accuracy.

Energy consultants/brokers will not only alleviate this burden from you and use their range of suppliers, they can also find out your annual consumption figure, thereby helping to provide a far more accurate reflection of your annual spend.

SMEs needn’t be adverse to changing suppliers, by simply farming out the responsibility to experts they can focus on other key aspects of their business that can generate revenue. Being pro-active and on top of all bills, not just the energy is critical.
