Things to Consider when Switching Energy Supplier

Switching Energy Supplier can be daunting, however, it shouldn’t be a difficult process. It’s surprisingly quick and easy, and here are some questions to point you in the right direction.

 

Is it always worth switching energy suppliers?

If you stay with the same supplier, it is highly unlikely you’re getting a good deal. However, by switching provider every 12 months, you can ensure you’re getting the best prices. Going through the process of switching year-on-year can be a hassle unless you work with a third-party like ourselves who can manage the process for you.

We take note of your renewal dates and send you some quotes to review and you simply approve the one you would like to go ahead with. Meaning we do all the legwork for you.

According to Ofgem, the energy regulator, nearly 60% of businesses fall back on our suppliers’ standard tariffs rather than switching. That means you could end up paying much more than you need to.

 

What is the Energy Switch Guarantee?

It is the energy companies’ commitment to ensure that the switching process is easy. Because of this, it means that changing provider is free, plus it will not interrupt your service, and it is down to us to tell your old one that you are leaving. This is all to reduce the job that you will have to do yourselves.

 

Do I have to tell my old energy supplier that I’m switching?

No. We’ll let your new supplier know and they’ll get in touch with your old supplier to arrange the switch. By sending us a recent bill, we can work out the date your contract ends, even if it is far in the future and schedule the switch accordingly.

 

What do I need to know if I want to switch energy suppliers?

All you need to be able to switch energy suppliers is a recent bill containing how much you currently pay for your gas and electricity, and to let us know who your current supplier is. You’ll also need basic details like your address and postcode.

 

Which suppliers do we compare?

At Green Jellyfish, we compare dozens of suppliers to try and find a cheaper deal on your business energy. These include all of the Big Six, British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, npower, Scottish Power and SSE, as well as plenty of small and medium suppliers who are offering competitive rates to lure customers away from the big names.

 

How easy is switching energy supplier?

At Green Jellyfish, we make it incredibly easy to switch energy suppliers. The process doesn’t entail a lot and only requires 2 things from you.

Below we have given an insight as to how simple it really is.

Step 1. Find an old bill: For us to search for the most accurate quote, you’ll need to provide us with information about the current tariff you’re on and the levels of energy you use.

Step 2.  Sign a Letter of Authority: This gives us legal permission to start searching for potential quotes.

Step 3.  Get a quote: Once we have these documents, we will send you over some quotes comparing different suppliers, tariffs and contract lengths to see what deal is most suited to your business – at this point, you can also see how much you’re saving per year!

Step 4.  Start switching: After choosing a new tariff and beginning your switch application, you should wait to hear instructions from the energy supplier, which could take up to 14 days.

Step 5.  Pay the final bill: You’ll get one last bill from your old energy supplier. If you are in credit, then ensure that you get a refund with your old provider.
