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 Commercial Energy Prices for Your Firm

by D-ENERGi
 

Are you looking to find the best commercial energy prices for your firm and boost profitability as a result?

If so, then the team of experts at D-Energi will be able to help.

However, you may be one of the 40% of firms, according to the Competition and Markets Authority, that have not switched energy suppliers in the last five years and are probably paying more than you need to for your firm’s energy needs.

The switchover process to a new energy supplier is seamless and the potential savings can be impressive.

Search for a cheaper commercial energy quote

Indeed, once you begin the search for a cheaper commercial energy quote, you will find what the current market rates are and what the potential savings will be; even a one-man band will be able to save hundreds of pounds every year.

On top of this, if your firm is a large user of energy, then your savings will be much more and could stretch into thousands of pounds every year.

However, should you be looking for a cheaper energy supplier you will soon appreciate that it is difficult to source a like-for-like quote since suppliers will want to offer a bespoke offering to help meet your firm’s energy needs.

This is also apparent should you be using online comparison websites for business energy prices and the other drawback is that the sites tend not to search the entire market so you will not be able to enjoy the best prices and deals.

You will be able to access these best energy prices and deals for your firm should you contact D-Energi.

Sourcing a cheap commercial energy supplier

There’s no doubt that by sourcing a cheap commercial energy supplier you will reduce overheads and boost profitability and this should be done every year as part of a firm’s best business practice. It’s a surprise why so many firms do not take the time to find a new supplier and save money.

Indeed, the process is straightforward and the switchover process is seamless and there’s no loss of energy during the switch to a new energy supplier.

If you are looking to undertake the research yourself it’s important to appreciate that a potential deal may offer low energy prices but the standing charge also needs to be examined; this is a potential area where a supplier may not be offering such a great deal after all.

It’s also possible to use the prices from an online comparison website as a benchmark to negotiate a better deal with your current business energy supplier.

However, not every business owner has the time or the inclination to speak with several potential business energy suppliers and would prefer to use a simpler process where they speak with one team of experts and only give their information to them.

 

This means speaking with the team at D-Energi who will be able to find the best commercial energy prices for your firm.
