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 Your Cheap Commercial Electricity Quote

by D-ENERGi
 

If you would like to save hundreds or indeed thousands of pounds with a cheap business electricity quote, then it’s time to take action.

Sadly, according to a government survey around 40% of firms in the UK have never switched their gas or electricity supplier. This means they are likely to be paying more than they need to for their utility provision.

With some simple research and a call to the friendly D-Energi team, it is possible for most firms and organisations to save a substantial amount of money on their overheads.

The government is also keen for more firms to switch as this will help stimulate the commercial electricity supply market which, in turn, will boost competition and help lower prices.

It should also make suppliers provide better customer service and add-on services such as an energy consultation so their customer can reduce their usage levels and save even more.

Comparing commercial electricity rates

It’s also worth bearing in mind that when comparing business electricity rates that the market is more competitive, certainly more so than when we are finding an electricity provider for our homes.

The result of this competition is that suppliers are keen to attract new business with tempting offers that should undercut your current provider’s rates.

There are a number of ways to compare these commercial prices and in addition to contacting D-Energi, you could visit the various websites of these suppliers, offer a few details and find out what the potential deal is for your business.

Alternatively, you could use an online comparison site that will look at various providers but because the market changes so frequently you may not be searching the entire market.

Review their utility supply for cheap electricity prices

Ultimately, every business and organisation should be looking to review their utility supply for cheap electric prices, and also for gas, because not switching suppliers may mean you have been rolled over automatically onto a contract where the rates are higher and this is called a ‘deemed’ contract.

The best time to search the marketplace for low electricity prices for a business is when your current supplier contacts you to inform you what your next year’s electricity and gas rates will be; this offers a window of opportunity to end your contract with your current supplier and move to a new, cheaper contract to save money.

 

While the market to find a cheap commercial electricity quote can be confusing and time-consuming, the team at D-Energi will be able to offer help and advice to guide you through it and find an excellent deal.
