UK Businesses Urged to “Switch to Save” or Lose Out on Energy Bills
Changing energy suppliers seen as a hassle as many businesses miss out on benefits reaped by switching-savvy enterprises
Businesses are in the dark on energy purchasing as new research shows that nearly half have never switched suppliers or tariffs, with one in five not knowing that switching is an option for them. Three-quarters of SMEs – which equates to approximately 3.9 million businesses – believe they pay too much for their utilities and almost the same number understand there are savings to be made.
Following recent consumer switching campaigns, businesses know about energy switching and found that despite feeling they pay too much, there is a lack of understanding about the options or perceived barriers that stop them taking action.

When it comes to reasons why business owners are reluctant to explore switching, many believe it will take them too much time and effort:
– Businesses fear costs and fees attached to transferring to a new supplier
– An increase of paperwork and forms to fill in makes businesses nervous
– Over a quarter even believe that switching will cause a disruption to their energy supply and that they may be left for a period of time with no gas or electricity
