Why businesses should stop ignoring the elephant in the room

  • Our B2B team have been out and about encouraging businesses to switch supplier and save money.

The Bristol Energy B2B team have been at business showcases across the country encouraging businesses to stop ignoring the elephant in the room.

It's crucial to keeping a business running, yet an expense that's often overlooked.

But the reality is, large energy bills can break small businesses. And many businesses aren’t getting a fair deal.

Research from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) suggests that half (52%) of small firms have been stung by unfair contract terms with their suppliers, at a cost of nearly £4 billion over the past three years.*

This could include suppliers tying businesses into lengthy notice periods, failing to make auto-rollover clauses clear up front, or charging high early termination fees.



Bristol Energy was set up Bristol City Council to offer people a fairer deal for their homes and businesses. And we will reinvest our profits back into local communities.

By keeping our prices competitive and offering fixed contracts, we can protect our smaller business customers from the vulnerabilities in the energy market.

Call us free on 0808 168 3888 or visit businessquote.bristol-energy.co.uk to get an instant, no obligation quote and be entered into our monthly prize draw to win £100 Love2shop vouchers.** It only takes a few minutes.
