The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

D-ENERGi would like to commend the Government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and all civil servants involved working around the clock to implement the Energy Bill Relief Scheme. We appreciate BEIS efforts in working with all non-domestic suppliers over the last few weeks. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following:

  • The scheme is only open to customers which have signed agreements with their suppliers from the 1st April 2022 onwards. The Energy Bill Relief Scheme comes into effect from the 1st October and a discount will be applied until 31st March 2023.
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements.
  • The BEIS department recommends all customers continue to enter into fixed price agreements as normal to shield businesses from future wholesale price increases. This way we can ensure all our customers are protected from the volatility in the current wholesale market.
  • As portrayed in some media outlets there is no price cap for businesses. The price cap is on the wholesale element price only. Please do not expect the unit rates of 21.1 p/kwh for electricity and 7.5 p/kwh for gas to appear on your bills. These rates do not include the many other non-commodity costs which make up your bill for both gas and electricity.
  • For customers who qualify for the Energy Bill Relief Scheme we kindly ask all qualifying customers to provide us with monthly gas and / or electricity meter reads until end of the scheme. This should be done ideally on the first day of the month or no later than the 10th.This will be a great help to get your bills as accurate as possible and ensure we apply the right discount throughout the scheme period.

2020 Business Energy Prices Per kWh

by D-ENERGi
 

If you need to know what the best business energy prices per kWh are in 2020 to save money, then this article will help.

There’s no doubt that when your current contract comes up for renewal, this is the ideal time to begin a search of the commercial electricity supply market in the bid to find cheaper prices.

There are various ways of going about this, some are more efficient than others, and include:

  • Speaking with a supplier to find out what they will charge you
  • Widening your search to use a commercial electricity comparison website but they are unlikely to be searching the entire market.
  • Or using the experts at D-Energi who can search the entire business energy supply sector to find the cheapest and best deal.

Compare business electricity rates per kWh

It will soon become obvious when you try to compare business electricity rates per kWh between suppliers that the prices will vary. That’s because suppliers are using criteria to put together their bespoke deal, including:

  • Your geographic location
  • How many staff you employ
  • The sector you work in
  • Whether you have plans to expand.

You also need to consider when searching for new cheap business electricity rates that it’s not just about finding a cheap price.

That’s because you need to understand two important elements and they are:

  • The unit rate is the price you pay for the actual energy your firm consumes
  • The standing charge is an amount that varies between providers and pays for the energy to be delivered.

Not appreciating that this charge can be higher than you currently pay may means that any deal with a lower unit rate may end up costing more without you realising.

Compare energy prices between suppliers in the UK

Essentially, the most effective way to compare energy prices between suppliers in the UK is to use experts who understand how the market works and who can help explain any offered contract. This means speaking with the D-Energi team.

In addition to sourcing a cheaper deal this year, they can also help find cheaper providers when your deal comes up for renewal and even source a provider offering incentives such as having an account manager to help you run the account smoothly.

There’s also the opportunity of having an energy consultancy carried out to reduce your consumption levels of energy to not only save money but boost your environmental credentials too.

There’s a lot to consider when you need to search for the best business energy prices per kWh in 2020 and the most effective way of doing this is to speak with the D-Energi team today.
