Domestic energy suppliers will offer consumers a dual fuel discount if you source both gas and electricity from the same supplier. But with business energy it’s difficult to give a definitive answer to the question of whether there is a dual fuel discount.

What is a business energy dual energy tariff?

There’s no such thing as a dual fuel business energy tariff, unlike domestic energy (despite what you may read elsewhere). Some business energy suppliers will offer a better deal to ensure they get both your gas and electricity contract but this isn’t the same as a dual fuel discount or tariff as with household energy.

Benefits of a business energy dual energy tariff

It may be beneficial to get your home electricity and gas from the same supplier, there’s really no benefit in sourcing your business gas or electricity from the same supplier, unless they offer you a deal that makes it worth your while.

"Lorraine, the agent who attended to me, was extremely efficient and professional. The quotations obtained were very competitive and presented in an easily understandable format. All queries were attended to and replies forthcoming speedily. As a representative of the organisation, I could only present the proposals I obtained and, unfortunately, the committee elected to use another company. From my point of view, Lorraine made my task to gather all relevant details very easy and her attitude was professional and courteous throughout. I have no reservations in recommending SmB to other businesses who seek to change energy suppliers."
