Business energy (electricity) tariffs?
I've volunteered to look into this for a charity I help out at, even though I know nothing on the subject. Now I'm wondering if it's going to be as tricky as some sites allude to. (2 of the comparison sites, want to have someone phone me up, even though I requested 'just show me the results'!)
While I'm happy navigating the usual stuff, I'm clueless on solar panel usage. The site currently has 12 non functioning panels, but hopes to get these back online, as well as installing a few more.Do these solar panels need taking into consideration when changing energy supplier/tariff, or is the way any energy is fed back into the grid, and compensated, standardised these days?
(the slightly TL;DR bit if you want it)
It all started when I was asked a question about usage cost, and finding one of the bills (from E.ON) I discovered they're paying over 77p/kWh for electricity, with a 100p per day standing charge.
Unfortunately annual usage is only estimated at about 700 kWh, which rules out the likes of Octopus with a minimum annual business usage of 1000 kWh. Then again, a recent change in site usage may take annual consumption over 1000 kWh, so I'm not ruling them out.
I managed to get some results from loveenergysavings comparison site, and all the results are less than half the price of the current E.ON tariff. (current annual cost based on E.ON figures is about £880, with new quotes ranging from £288 to £419)
Before I start speaking to anyone regarding new quotes, I'd prefer to at least make an effort to know what I'm talking about.
