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.

Could You Save When You Undertake An Energy Switch?

by D-ENERGi
 

The simple answer to the question of whether ‘Could you save when you undertake an energy switch?’ is most definitely ‘Yes’.

That certainly is the case if your business has never switched suppliers or at least has not done so for several years.

You won’t be alone in this and you may simply have been too busy running your business to undertake a comparison between providers to find a cheaper supplier to help reduce your overheads.

According to the government survey, around 40% of firms in the UK haven’t switched energy providers in recent years so they are probably paying more than is necessary for their energy needs.

Switch energy suppliers

That’s a shame when there are big savings to be made when you switch energy suppliers; even a one-man band can save hundreds of pounds every year.

This obviously means that larger concerns and those firms with more than one premises could save even more and have one bill sent to them for all of their energy usages.

While you could use an online comparison site to find cheaper energy prices or contact potential suppliers directly, it’s important that you speak with experts who understand how the business energy supply market works.

This will mean contacting the friendly team at D-Energi who will be able to find an offer that will meet your firm’s needs and save you money. The switchover process is also straightforward and there’s no loss of energy supply.

Just to highlight, if you’ve never bothered switching energy suppliers before then you’ve probably been rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract so might be paying more than a new customer will be for your energy bills.

Find levels of customer service

Also, you may have had a poor experience with your current provider and are looking to find better levels of customer service with a new supplier.

There are potentially big savings to be made and a lot depends on how much energy you use, where you are located and the industry you operate in.

In addition, you could sign up for a long-term energy contract to enjoy bigger savings if you believe energy prices will rise and this will help those firms who want to control their cash flow for the next few years.

 

All firms should be encouraged to switch energy suppliers on a regular basis and if you still need convincing or if you simply want to find out what the savings could be, then contact the D-Energi team to find out more.
