Is there a business dual fuel tariff?


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.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
