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.

6 Tips to Compare Business Energy Tariffs

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are looking for tips to compare business energy tariffs before making the move to a new provider, then this article will help.

  • The first tip is perhaps the most important one, and it is:

When your new provider gets in touch with details of your renewal contract, you may find that the rates are much higher than those being offered by competitors.

  • The second tip is to act.

Failing to act when your new provider tells you what your new tariff will be may see you being moved automatically to a new contract with higher tariffs.

  • The third tip from the experts at D-Energi for finding a new supplier is:

Have your information to hand. A new supplier will need to know how much energy your firm is consuming and if you have more than one location, you’ll need information on these locations too. Most information will be found on a recent bill and you really should have the meter number so a supplier will know where your exact location is so you can compare business electricity and gas deals.

  • The fourth tip is to be aware of what influences the tariff.

Not all business owners will appreciate that the tariffs being quoted will vary between suppliers based on a range of criteria. Among these will be the size of your business and how much energy you consume, how many employees you have and your regional location.

  • The fifth tip is to use experts when sourcing your new energy contract.

Depending on the size of your business, it’s worth speaking with D-Energi who can explain the new contract from a supplier and if it will be better for your business and how the tariffs have been calculated. They can also take care of the switchover process.

  • The sixth tip is to sign up with D-Energi.

By signing up with D-Energi, not only will you and your business have access to the entire marketplace – not necessarily something that a website to compare business gas and electricity will do – to find the best and cheapest deal and have the switchover process taken care of.

More importantly, the D-Energi team will monitor the market and get in touch at your renewal period to find whether there’s a better deal available to help keep your energy costs as low as possible and boost profitability.
