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.

Energy Consultancy for Business Explained

by D-ENERGi
 

All firms and organisations should be looking to reduce their overheads on a regular basis and an energy consultancy may well help save cash for those interested organisations.

That’s because the energy consultants will know and understand the energy supply market and help the business find the best deals and tariffs that meet their needs.

On top of this, the energy consultancy will also undertake an energy audit to ensure that the savings being made are permanent and long-term.

For instance, the consultants may highlight areas where the firm can save large amounts of money by making simple changes to their everyday activities; this may mean switching off unused office lights, turning down the heating and even switching off computers and screens at night.

One reason a firm may be looking to bring in the experts is that they believe their energy bills may be too high but they may not understand how to lower them effectively.

A basic energy services audit

Industry experts say that even a basic energy services audit should see a firm’s energy bills being reduced by 10% at the very least while many firms may also enjoy savings of around 25%.

This may mean introducing energy efficiencies and upgrading various pieces of equipment but that is still a huge saving.

That’s on top of the energy audit locating better deals and tariffs which mean the overall savings can be quite substantial. The energy experts will also be able to help decipher the firm’s energy bills to ensure they are on the best deal currently, if not, highlight where potential savings can be made.

It may appear to be a strange way to invest in lower energy bills by paying experts to find a cheaper deal or tariff and better ways of using energy but it does work.

Expert should be able to deliver energy savings

However, the expert should be able to deliver energy savings that far outweigh their own costs.

Whether the audit is for retail premises, agricultural farms or a factory; an energy consultancy will pay dividends.

The bottom line is that all firms and organisations can become more energy-efficient which is not only good for our environment but also good for the firm’s overheads with lower running costs.

The energy audit may also be beneficial for keeping costs down in a factory with heavy usage of energy in the manufacturing process.
