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.

Are All Business Energy Prices Per Kwh the Same?

by D-ENERGi
 

In an ideal world, it would be great if all business energy prices per kWh (kilowatt-hour) were the same but they aren’t and there are reasons for this.

This means it’s always worth spending the time shopping around when your current provider gets in touch with details of the following year’s contract.

This is the best prompt to see what other business energy providers may offer and you could be saving a substantial sum by reducing the price per kilowatt-hour, even slightly.

These savings also extend to small start-ups and one-man bands since the prospect of reducing overheads is an easy one to achieve.

In addition, there’s no reason for any firm, regardless of its size, to be paying more than is necessary for their business energy prices.

Business electricity rates per kWh

There are other factors at play when you start to look at business electricity rates per kWh because providers are using different criteria to arrive at their deal so there are no typical commercial electricity rates.

Among the issues will be the location of your business, so some providers may decline to offer a quote, and the industry you operate in will also have an influence.

As will the number of employees you have and whether there are plans for expansion or to even move premises.

There are various ways to look at what the market may offer and one of them is to compare business electricity prices online using a dedicated platform.

Compare energy prices quickly

For many firms, this seems like an ideal solution to compare energy prices quickly and effectively but there are some downsides for those who use the sites.

The most obvious is that the online site is unlikely to be searching for the entire marketplace and will have a select number of providers.

And you’ll still need to speak with the recommended provider with your details so they can tailor their offering to meet your needs.

Alternatively, you could also spend time contacting suppliers for small business electricity prices individually to see if there’s a deal that will meet your needs.

However, the best way of searching the entire market and have experts take care of the switchover process is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who will explain why all business energy prices per kWh are not the same and they will strive to get you the best deal possible.
