Dual Fuel Contract Terms for Better Rates
If your company is having gas and electricity supplied from different retailers, it generally costs more. Thus, you probably noticed that they’re always trying to convince you to get a dual fuel contract.
Dual fuel means you get both your gas and electricity from the same supplier. Usually, it is possible to have the exact end dates for both so that next time around it is more convenient for you. Sure it will benefit the supplier, but it is cost-efficient for your business too.
It is up to your company to choose a preferred gas supplier, make sure you benefit from this and pick the best offer that suits your business’ terms and needs. The smart move is to engage with an experienced energy broker like us, to bring you the best offer possible.
