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.

Find the best cheap business gas and electric deals

by D-ENERGi
 

Businesses are increasingly looking to find the best cheap business gas and electric deals and it’s much easier to do so nowadays.

Along with the growth in competition, is an announcement by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to reform the UK’s business energy market.

The organisation is concerned about price transparency and bringing to an end automatic rollover contracts and for suppliers to give their business customers prompts to switch to rival energy supplies offering lower energy tariffs.

Most of those aims can be met if the business or organisations are prepared to shop around and do some research on potential business energy suppliers.

Or, for an easier way to access lower tariffs, contact the team at D-Energi who will have the latest and best prices available.

Looking to switch energy suppliers

One reason for the intervention of the CMA is that most firms will not be looking to switch energy suppliers on a regular basis despite their business energy costs being a big outgoing for them.

There are concerns that many firms are stuck in the auto-renewal cycle for their energy supply contracts to be renewed which may be costing them a hefty sum every year.

For a business that has never switched energy suppliers, or if they have remained with the supplier over a long period of time, it’s highly likely that they are paying more for their energy use than they need to.

By switching energy suppliers, the business or organisation should be able to access lower tariffs to bring down their energy costs.

While domestic energy users are increasingly opting to switch between energy suppliers this hasn’t quite transferred to the business community. Not yet anyway!

Find a cheap business gas supplier

The easiest way for a business to find a cheap business gas supplier or an electricity supplier is to look at their recent energy bills and then contact various energy suppliers to discuss what tariffs they may offer for the firm’s energy usage.

The energy supplier will be quoting their best rates they have by email or by telephone and it is straightforward process for the business to decide whether they want to proceed with the prices quoted on.

Some businesses may be concerned about the hassle involved in switching supplies but it will take between four and six weeks with no disruption to the business’s energy supply. The transition is seamless.

Switching to cheap business gas and electricity is a hassle-free process particularly if the business doing the switching is utilising the expertise of the team at D-Energi.
