How do I get a business energy quote?

Before asking for quotes from energy suppliers, or issuing a formal tender document, make sure you have as much of the following information as possible for all the premises you wish to transfer:

  • Full address and post code for each commercial property you own or rent.
  • The reference number for the all meter point(s) as shown on a bill(s) from your current supplier (i.e. Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) for gas and Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) or also known as the Supply or number for electricity). You may have more than one meter point for either fuel at your premises; you can check this with your existing supplier if you are unsure.
  • Meter Serial Number(s) “the number printed on your meter(s). If in doubt you can ask your supplier, who could offer arrange a meter reading visit (although this may incur a charge).
  • Your best evaluation of the annual amount of energy used, and the nature of your business/ consumption patterns since different tariffs may apply depending upon seasonal fluctuations or the time day at which you need to use energy. All of the following will be available from your latest bill, or from your current supplier.
  • For businesses which consume a significant amount of electricity, the maximum demand (the largest amount of electricity consumption in any one half-hour period)
  • Where gas consumption is high the Authorised Supply Capacity (the maximum quantity of gas you are permitted to use per day or per hour, as determined by the gas transporter)
  • For very high gas consumption, some premises may be supplied on an interruptible basis (where your gas supply can be interrupted on pre-agreed notice). If you have such a site, it is very important that you provide your new gas supplier with emergency contact details for these premises, in accordance with the Gas Safety Management Regulations.
  • Emergency contact details will also be required for sites consuming over 25k therms. Your new supplier will be able to give you more information about what contact details must be provided.
  • If you qualify for any VAT or Climate Change Levy exemptions or reductions “you will have to provide copies of these forms to your new supplier, and in some cases complete a new VAT declaration.
  • A copy of your last bill, this can be extremely helpful.
