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 Cheapest Business Electricity Prices

by D-ENERGi
 

If you’re looking to find the cheapest business electricity prices, then it makes sense to search online for a new electricity supplier.

However, while there are lots of comparison websites available there are a number of issues to consider before signing up with a potential energy supplier.

The first one is the question of whether the online comparison site is searching the entire marketplace so there may be better deals out there that you will be unaware of.

Also, while the comparison site will flag up what the market rate for your potential business is, you will still need to speak with a supplier directly to get a bespoke quote.

Search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK

You could also contact suppliers directly in your search for the cheapest business electricity rates UK and while this is a time-consuming process, it will probably save a substantial amount on your current electricity bills.

Also, it’s important to understand the difference between unit costs and daily charges because these are the two elements of any electricity bill.

For information, a daily charge is an amount levied by the supplier for them to deliver electricity to your premises and for them to maintain the National Grid.

The price per unit is usually expressed in kWh (kilowatt hours) and this, as with the standing charge, will vary between suppliers and sometimes substantially so.

However, it’s important to calculate with any new bill what your potential annual outgoings will be because a supplier may offer a low average unit cost but a more expensive daily charge so they aren’t as cheap as they first appear.

Search for the cheapest business electricity supplier

The search for the cheapest business electricity supplier can be a time-consuming process but it can be a rewarding one if you reduce a substantial amount of your overheads as a result.

This is often easier said than done and many firms are put off at the prospect of switching electricity supplier; the government has calculated that around 40% of firms have never switched supplier so they are probably paying more than they need to for their electricity supply.

Indeed, if this last point includes you and your business then you need to appreciate that you have probably been rolled over onto a new contract automatically, it’s known as a ‘deemed contract’, where the prices are substantially more than a new customer would enjoy.

 

There’s no need to be paying more for your electricity than you should be doing and with huge savings to be made it’s worth finding the cheapest business electricity prices for your firm and easiest way of doing this is to contact that the D-Energi team who will, in just a few minutes, supply you with an impressive quote.
