Yorkshire Energy (also T/A Daisy Energy) has ceased to trade.

They have around 74,000 domestic and non domestic customers for whom another supplier will have to be appointed. During this time you have an opportunity not to accept the takeover but make your own choices.  Please make contact whether you are a business or domestic customer.

 

Empty Premises?

Someone will be responsible for paying the daily standing charge, regardless of whether the building is empty or not.  If there is no tenant, the owner is liable.  If there is a void period without tenants occupying the building, look for a product that has no standing charge, just a unit cost for your electricity or gas.  As we approach the winter months, it is better to keep background heating on at a low setting to prevent issues with frost damage to pipes, burst pipes and it will also make the place more welcoming for viewing by prospective new occupants.

Energy price caps limit how much suppliers can charge domestic customers per unit of gas or electricity. They are based on how much it really costs, on average, to get energy to your home. They will ensure you pay a fairer price for your energy and are protected from being overcharged by energy suppliers.   Take a look at Ofgem.gov.uk for more information.    There is a useful link if you do not know who your supplier is for both electricity and gas.

Business can blend and extend their contracts.

This means that say a business has a 24 month contract.  It could have built in a break clause should the market price drop.  The mid term review would result in new prices negotiated and then in return an extension to the existing contract is accepted by the business.

Water Audits

It is worth auditing your water usage as business water is deregulated.

Is your business address correct on your bill?

This basic bit of information is very important.  Is yours correct for all your premises?

What if your address is not correct on your bill?  It is best to do something about it now, as when you want to change services, this can be a huge problem.  If your telephone number or meter details don’t match the address that is on the database then your request to switch to another provider might be refused.
