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 You On the Cheapest Business Electricity Prices?

by D-ENERGi
 

When your current provider contacts you with your next year’s contract rates, you may be wondering whether you are on the cheapest business electricity prices for your needs.

The landing of this contract renewal letter is a great point to begin searching the marketplace to find cheaper energy prices that will help you lower your running costs.

To find cheaper rates, you could contact suppliers directly or use an online comparison site.

The first method can be time-consuming and not find the best offers while the latter may not search the entire marketplace but will give a fair indication of what prices your business should be paying.

Cheapest business electricity rates UK

In the search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK, you should carry out a search of the marketplace every year when your contract is up for renewal to ensure you never pay more than you should for electricity.

Unfortunately, a government survey has highlighted that 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching so they will have probably been rolled over onto deemed contracts which tend to be much higher than a new customer will enjoy.

It doesn’t have to be this way since online comparison sites and the D-Energi team can search the marketplace to source the bespoke deal that should save a substantial amount of money on your business’s electricity bills.

The cheapest business electricity supplier

Finding the cheapest business electricity supplier is straightforward and the switchover process is a seamless one and there’s no loss of supply when you decide to swap.

This may be a potential worry for those firms who rely on their electricity supply but they don’t have to because the market is still monitored by the watchdog Ofgem to ensure that firms deliver on promises and supply.

It also needs to be highlighted that some of the smaller independent providers will offer the better prices and better levels of customer service since some firms will be reluctant to move away from one of the ‘Big Six’ providers but with the offer of substantial savings to be made this should be investigated.

 

If you want to find out whether you are on the cheapest business electricity prices and, if not, what the cheapest prices could be for your needs, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi.
