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.

A Cheap Commercial Gas Quote is Only the Start

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are looking to reduce your energy bills, then sourcing a cheap commercial gas quote is only the start of the process.

The best time to begin looking is when your current provider tells you what your next year’s deal will be as this will open a window of opportunity.

Should you not decide to switch and remain with the provider, you may find they will, or already have, moved you onto a deemed contract which tends to have higher rates.

Instead, you could spend just a few minutes sourcing a cheaper commercial gas quote to meet your business needs.

Along with saving money, the prospect of switching business gas supplies should lead to a better level of customer service, particularly if you have several sites and need just one bill to deal with.

It’s also possible to switch to a company that has a green energy ethos that they better reflect your firm’s values.

Compare business gas prices between providers

You will need to compare business gas prices between providers and ensure that their bespoke deal will reduce costs.

We highlight this issue because some suppliers may offer a much lower unit rate per kilowatt hour than your current provider, but the standing charge could be substantially more so you do not make any savings. Indeed, you could even spend more as a result when switching.

Also, when looking from quotes from providers, it may be tempting to use an online comparison site since this is a quick and easy way of achieving this.

However, while the site may deliver a market rate for your business needs and location, the site may not be searching all of the potential gas suppliers and there could be better, cheaper deals available.

Finding the cheapest gas tariff

It’s this question of spending fine time finding the cheapest gas tariff suitable for your business that may put off many business owners.

There is a quick and easy way of searching the entire marketplace to find the bespoke deal that will deliver a cheaper gas bill and that is to speak with the experts at D-Energi.

Along with the opportunity of reducing your energy overheads, the team may also be able to organise a consultancy to enable you to reduce your gas usage and enjoyed real long-term savings as a result and also boost your environmental credentials.

If you would like more information about sourcing a cheap commercial gas quote that will meet your needs, then it’s time to contact the friendly team at D-Energi.
