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.

Cheap Business Gas Deals Are Only The Start

by D-ENERGi
 

If you run a business and an energy renewal deal has just landed on your doormat, then now is the time to look at cheap business gas deals to reduce overheads.

By shopping around, firms can reduce their current gas deal by a substantial amount; some firms could see savings of up to 40% or several hundred – or even thousands – pounds.

Larger firms will obviously enjoy bigger savings and have the prospect of improved customer services as well.

However, it’s not just about enjoying cheaper business gas deals but this should be part of an annual process for the firm to examining their overheads and reducing them to boost profitability.

Look for a cheap business electricity deal

Indeed, when we say that finding cheaper gas deals is only the start, we mean the firm should also look for a cheap business electricity deal as well.

There’s no doubt that these are available but many firms are tied up with their day-to-day tasks and don’t have the opportunity to use the comparison websites that will help them find cheaper and better deals.

Let’s not forget also that for firms in England and Scotland they may also be able to find cheaper water suppliers to reduce costs even further.

For many firms, the easiest way of finding a cheap gas and electricity deal is to speak with the helpful team at D-Energi who have access to the latest offers and can also deal with the paperwork to ensure the transition to a new supplier is a seamless one.

Source cheap business energy deals

All firms should try to source cheap business energy deals whenever they can and the government and Ofgem, the industry regulator, are increasingly keen on boosting competition within the marketplace and for all organisations to switch energy suppliers on a regular basis.

By doing this, the government says, prices will fall and firms will have a wider choice of suppliers to enjoy.

With the prospect of energy prices for firms increasing in the near future, it is also possible to find a new energy deal that the firm can lock into for two, three or even five years.

This means they will be insulated from any potential wholesale energy price hikes and will also have the opportunity to budget more effectively for their cashflow forecast.

 

However, as a business owner or a senior executive, you want to know just how effective cheap business gas deals can be and by contacting the D-Energi team this could be the start of a fruitful and rewarding relationship.
