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.

Can Your Business Save by Switching Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers?


In answer to the question, ‘Can your business save by switching half hourly electricity suppliers?’ Then if you use D-Energi, it will be ‘Yes’.

That’s because the team of experts has the experience to help you switch your half hourly electricity provider for lower and better rates.

This is a great opportunity for you to reduce your business costs but there will be some firms who may not understand what half hourly, or HH, electricity meters are.

Half hourly electricity meter

A half hourly electricity meter will send your electricity usage data to the supplier every 30 minutes, hence the name ‘half hourly’ electricity.

This means you will no longer receive estimated bills and your supplier, and potential suppliers will know exactly what your electricity usage levels are and when you use your energy.

It is also possible to use software so you can analyse your data to see if there are easy savings to be made by using less electricity or switching your firm’s periods of peak use to an off-peak tariff that will deliver bigger cost savings.

However, you will need to compare half hourly commercial suppliers to get the better deals but sourcing quotes on a like-for-like basis for HH meters can be confusing.

It’s also possible for firms with more than one premises to consolidate their meters and tariffs to use just one energy provider.

Lower half hour electricity prices for firms

These lower half hour electricity prices tend to be for firms with high energy needs and their data should enable a potential supplier to tailor their offering to best meet that organisation’s needs.

It’s also possible to use a comparison website to find a cheaper half hourly electricity provider but the website itself may not be searching the entire marketplace so you may be missing out on better deals.

The best way is to contact a supplier directly or speak with the D-Energi team who will, in just a few minutes, take some details and then search for the best deals that will meet your needs.

This is a great opportunity for lowering overheads and the data means that the deals offered will be tailored to your energy demands.

Indeed, this is a process that all firms and organisations should undertake every year as a matter, of course, to ensure that they are never paying more than they need for their electricity supply.

If you want to test whether your business can save by switching half-hourly electricity suppliers, then contact the friendly D-Energi team to find out more.
