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 A Cheap Business Gas Supplier and Save

by D-ENERGi
 

With every business and organisation looking to reduce their costs, by finding a cheap business gas supplier they can save money and boost profitability.

However, it should be remembered that to enjoy the best savings a firm will probably need to switch their business gas supplier.

But it’s also likely that as with many other firms, the business will be stuck on a contract that is not just out of date but will be a contract for which they are paying more than they need to for their gas supply.

Savings to be made by switching energy supplier can vary from hundreds of pounds per firm to thousands of pounds every year depending on their gas usage.

The simple trick to enjoying lower rates for gas supply is to switch during the renewal period for a contract since this offers a window of opportunity.

Use experts to find cheap business gas and electric suppliers

It’s also helpful that firms can use experts to find cheap business gas and electric suppliers to access the best deals and lowest gas prices.

It’s also possible for a firm to undertake a lot of the research for themselves to find out how much they can save quite easily.

Perhaps the best way to do this is to visit a gas supply comparison website and by typing in a few details a potential gas supplier will offer their typical rates.

It should be borne in mind that these rates will probably not be the ones enjoyed by the firm concerned since the gas supplier will need to tailor their offering to the firm’s own needs.

Inevitably, this makes sourcing a like-for-like quote very difficult but it does begin the process of realising just how much a firm may be overpaying for their business gas supply and how much they can save.

It’s also possible to enjoy lower rates by locking the business into a contract that runs for two, three or even five years; this is a sound choice should the business believe that energy rates will rise over the coming years.

Locking into longer term business gas supply contracts

Another good reason for locking into longer-term business gas supply contracts is that the firm will then know what their cash flow will be like since they know how much they gas bills are likely to be over a given period.

While many business owners will be tied up with the day-to-day process of running a business and will probably be tight for time, it is still worth spending some time looking at the various offers and opportunities available.

Alternatively, a simple way to find out how much a firm could be paying for their business gas supply is to contact experts such as D-Energi who have the expertise to find the best tariffs possible within just a few minutes.

This could be a tempting prospect for many business owners since they will be able to source lower gas prices quickly and efficiently.

It should also be appreciated that the experts at D-Energi can also take care of the switchover process which is a seamless transaction and there will be no interruption to the firm’s gas supply.

For those larger firms, particularly those with more than one premises, it’s also possible to access lower gas prices and by contacting the team they will also find out just how much they can save.

The supply of gas to various premises

It’s also possible to have just one invoice supplied for the supply of gas to various premises and offices rather than having to deal with several invoices.

This will help streamline the payment processing and help the business keep on top of paperwork and predict their bills more accurately.

There’s a lot to recommend using online comparison websites since they do encourage firms to examine further just how much they can save but, as mentioned previously, firms should appreciate that the price quoted may not be the price they will be offered.

 

It’s for this reason that the experts at D-Energi can offer more help and advice when it comes to helping a firm find a cheap business gas supplier and save lots of money in the process to lower their overheads and boost profitability.
