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.

Enjoy the Best Commercial Electricity Quote

by D-ENERGi
 

One of the best ways to enjoy a better commercial electricity quote is to compare the offerings between suppliers.

Nearly every firm and organisation will need an electricity supply for their daily needs and without it, many will not be able to function effectively.

This means this is a crucial supply and firms should take steps to ensure they get the best deal possible by shopping around when their contract falls due.

This is easier said than done when energy prices appear to be on the rise, so firms may think it’s more difficult to find a cheap business electricity offer from a supplier. That would not be true.

Appreciate Commercial Electricity Rates

The first step is to appreciate commercial electricity rates and what is being offered currently by suppliers; the market itself fluctuated so these prices change often.

Firms could use an online comparison website which will be regularly updated but may not search the entire market for a potential electricity supplier.

Also, business owners may decide that they and their staff do not have the right level of knowledge to deal with the issue of finding and then switching to a new commercial electricity supply.

For those who do believe this, then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team who can explain how the market works and how to find the best offers.

Business electric prices change regularly

As mentioned previously, business electric prices change on a regular basis and with growing competition, many suppliers work hard to undercut the ‘big six’ suppliers.

Also, there are a number of terms that business owners will need to appreciate when beginning their search and the first one regards tariffs.

That’s because a fixed rate tariff means a business will pre-agree the rates per unit from their electricity supplier for the duration of the contract.

Fixed rates offer a business a competitive price, particularly for those who are on a ‘deemed rate’ tariff – that’s when the firm will have been rolled over onto an automatic contract because they haven’t formally agreed on a new contract or switched supplier.

Switchover process is seamless

It’s also important to appreciate that the switchover process is seamless and there’s no loss of electricity supply to the business when this is undertaken.

The government is keen for more firms to shop around for their business electricity supply so more competition is encouraged in the marketplace; more competition means lower prices for all firms in the UK.
