Rochdale, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/06/2013 -- As the mercury in the thermometer drops, and unusually low temperatures forecast to stay, business commercial customers will see a surge in their bills.
Meteorologists in the UK recently announced temperatures for the country are expected to stay unseasonably low for at least the next two weeks. Electric and gas utilities have already reported seeing an increase in demand in comparison to last year. For businesses in an already weakened economy this could be the tipping point which pushes them over the edge, high January electric charges coupled with continued increases in the rates to pay for the EUs green plan.
One company aims to help these businesses by helping them find better electricity tariffs. Business Electricity Prices is a Rochdale, UK based online platform, which allows companies to begin comparing their energy bills under their current rate regime, and under a lower price, which they bid on through BEP.
“We are already seeing a large uptick in calls from corporate customers across, the UK, the recent increase in electricity and gas prices has pushed many of them over the edge.” says a company spokesperson at Business Electricity Prices, “These customers are looking to us to help them compare electricity costs, and keep them in line, so they can stay in business.”
Today’s rates on Business Electricity Prices were 2.74 p / Kwh for Gas and 9.01 p / Kwh for electricity. The Business Electricity Prices platform works by comparing leading United Kingdom based electricity and gas providers. Corporate customers enter their current energy data and bills into the company’s online platform and it returns a quote from other leading providers, giving companies the opportunity to get a comparison of the different costs.
“Keeping costs in check is critical to running a successful business,” says the spokesperson, “And with electric utilities in the UK charging more than ever, it is important to ensure a business is with the lowest cost provider.”
