It sounds deceptively simple. Just pick, right? What could be hard about that?
After all, you picked the electricity provider for your home. Sure, you did a little research, compared some rates and looked at your available options, but even if you were thorough about it, that didn’t take you more than a few hours’ time, at the most. Surely commercial electricity isn’t that different. Choosing a provider for your business should be more or less the same, shouldn’t it?
Unfortunately, no. One does not simple…pick a commercial electricity provider.
Business electricity and residential electricity are similar in that the same thing happens as a result of both services—you flip a switch, and the lights come on. Your computer powers up. All your gadgets and gizmos have juice. The AC works. But that is where the similarity between the two stops. They may accomplish the same thing (provide you with power), but they are priced, structured and sold in vastly different ways.
And frankly, that makes it confusing. First and foremost, because you can choose a fairly simply, straight-forward rate plan for your business much like you did for your home. However, business electricity includes fees that do not apply to residential accounts. And you have a number of other options besides that simple rate plan. It might be the best plan for you, or there might be another option out there that will save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars annually.
Yep, the stakes are that high.
So, what do you do? All those options, all those choices—how do you find the one that will save your business money? Do you just pick?
Hopefully, no. You have a resource at your disposal you may not even realize is there. And even if you knew about it before reading this post, maybe you didn’t realize how powerful that resource is.
