Why switch small business energy suppliers?

Switching business energy suppliers is one way to reduce business costs. We recently found that 6 in 10 small businesses could make easy savings by switching energy providers.

We make the energy switch easy for your business by taking care of the full switching process. All we need is an opening meter read once we’re ready to complete the switch. Your business will benefit from managing its account(s) online with MyAccount and from free UK-based business advisers.

Could I save by switching business energy?

All businesses are different but you could see if you could save money by comparing unit rates and standing charges as well as monthly and annual cost projections.

It’s difficult to say how much your business could save, as quotes are dependent on Estimated Annual Consumption (EAC) and the size of the business. But we review our prices monthly to ensure we stay competitive.

If I switch my small business energy supplier, how long does it take and what’s the process?

Switching business energy is similar to switching a residential supply. To make things simple and straightforward, we’ll ask you to enter a postcode, confirm your address and input your business energy use (it’s always handy to have a bill to hand). If you don't know how much energy your business uses in kWh, you can always enter spend in pounds.

Once you select a new tariff, we’ll run a ‘soft’ credit check to see if your business is eligible. This is normal and most business energy suppliers do this. Once completed, you just need to select a start date you'd like (up to 150 days) and enter business owner details in order to set up an energy account.

If I switch my small business energy online, what information do I need?

We normally just need businesses to enter very basic information such as:

  • Your business address

  • How much energy do you use (kWh or £)

  • Type of business

  • Company registration number (if LTD)

  • Owners details

In some cases, if we're unable to retrieve your metering details we'll need to confirm information which can be found on a bill.

What happens once I choose to switch my business energy to EDF?

If you choose to switch to us on a fixed-term contract, you can sign up straight away from the quote process. Otherwise, you can give us a call or request a callback and once you choose the tariff that is right for you, we'll sort out the rest.

We'll contact your current supplier on your behalf and advise them of the transfer date. To follow the progress of your transfer you can log in to MyAccount and use the Contract Tracker.

On the date of your transfer just take a meter reading and submit it to us. You can do this by visiting MyAccount, via our mobile app, or by calling us on 0333 200 5103.(2)
