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.

Five Ways To Lower Your Business Electricity Prices Per Kwh

by D-ENERGi
 

All firms and organisations should be looking to lower their business electricity prices per kWh every year and here are five easy ways of achieving this.

The main aim is to do so quickly and effectively rather than spending hours contacting potential providers individually and also not using specialist platforms to compare business electricity prices online to find cheaper prices.

The main reason for not doing so is that they are probably not contacting the entire market of potential suppliers and you will still need to deal directly with a recommended supplier to negotiate their bespoke offer.

However, it is worth spending time speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who can scour the market to find the best deal with low business electricity rates to help lower your bills.

Tip 1

Contact D-Energi to see what they can do for you as they have years of experience, lots of happy customers and access to the entire market.

They can also help explain how and why you should compare business electricity prices per kWh to ensure you will actually enjoy cheaper bills.

Tip 2

This issue of understanding electricity prices per kWh is important because you may find a potential supplier offering a lower unit rate, that’s the actual amount you pay for the electricity your firm uses, but they may have a higher standing charge.

This charge is levied to help pay the National Grid for delivering energy to your premises but it can vary substantially so you need to be wary that a cheap unit rate may have a much higher standing charge than you currently pay, so you won’t make any savings.

Tip 3

A survey from the government reveals that 40% of firms have never bothered switching, so you should put it in your diary to check every year when your current supplier tells you of your next year’s tariff.

Not only will this reassure you that you aren’t paying over the odds for your electricity, but it will also help to stimulate competition in the marketplace which will benefit all businesses.

Tip 4

While we’ve mentioned reducing electricity bills, it’s also worth spending the time to seek cheaper business gas prices per kWh from a new provider.

Again, the D-Energi team can do this and help with the switchover process.

Tip 5

Along with accessing cheaper small business electricity prices and a lower standing charge, the D-Energi team can also help find a supplier offering an energy consultancy that will help you reduce your consumption levels to deliver even greater savings.

In addition, this is also an opportunity to boost your environmental credentials which are becoming increasingly important in the business world today.

So, there are five great ways to help lower your business electricity prices per kWh and if you really want to reduce overheads, then you should get in touch with the D-Energi team today.
