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.

Don’t Just Save Money When You Compare Business Energy Suppliers

by D-ENERGi
 

While it’s relatively easy for a firm or organisation to save money when switching energy providers, it’s not just about saving money when you compare business energy suppliers.

That’s because many of the lesser-known suppliers will have other offerings which may prove to be attractive to your business and help you save even more money.

In addition to offering better levels of customer service, a smaller business energy supplier may offer other things including an energy consultancy to help your firm use less energy and enjoy much lower energy bills as well. That’s on top of accessing cheaper prices.

Their advice might range from installing automatic lights in rooms that only switch on when someone enters to investing in new equipment that uses less energy and will save money over its lifetime. There are lots of ideas that will save a firm money and it’s not just about common sense.

Compare business electricity providers

That’s because when you compare business electricity providers who are offering these consultancies they may also offer a service to check the current deal or tariff your firm is on to see if it’s possible to claim money back if you are on the wrong tariff.

The consultancy will also analyse how you use energy to see if you could make substantial savings by switching to off-peak periods of usage or using their knowledge of the marketplace to access a specific deal.

Unfortunately, most firms will opt to stick with the ‘Big Six’ energy providers because they are reassured by the fact they have heard of them. This may be a costly mistake.

In addition, a survey conducted by the government revealed that around 40% of UK firms have never bothered switching energy suppliers which means they are more than likely to be paying more than they need to for their energy needs. That is a shame since by switching, you will be encouraging greater competition in the business energy supply marketplace.

Firms looking to compare business gas suppliers

This option also extends to those firms looking to compare business gas suppliers to meet their needs and again there’s lots of competition in this marketplace so you should be able to access lower prices.

It also needs to be highlighted that when you are comparing business energy providers that these savings are available to firms and organisations of all shapes and sizes, regardless of the industry they work in and where they are located.

The savings to be enjoyed will vary depending on how much energy you use but there is the opportunity to enjoy a substantial reduction in your firm’s overheads by simply switching business gas and electricity suppliers.
