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.

Help to Compare Business Energy Quotes

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are a busy business owner confused by the process to find a new energy supplier and need help to compare business energy quotes, then you need the D-Energi team.

That’s because they have years of experience in finding the best and cheapest deals for firms around the country and they can take care of the switchover process too.

It’s important to appreciate that D-Energi is able to search the entire energy supply market for businesses, whereas an online comparison site may only have a select number of suppliers for you to choose from. This means there could be better and cheaper deals available elsewhere.

Also, while the comparison site appears to be a quick process, you will still need to negotiate with the supplier directly as you will need to agree to a bespoke deal for meeting your needs.

Compare business electricity and gas offers

So, when is the best time to compare business electricity and gas offers?

The answer is when your current provider gets in touch with details of what your next year’s contract rates will be and this is the nudge that most firms will need to see whether there are cheaper and better deals available. The answer is that there probably are better deals around.

However, not every firm will undertake this exercise and one government survey has highlighted that around 40% of businesses have never bothered switching their energy providers.

As a result, they are probably paying far more than is necessary for their energy needs because their supplier will have moved them across to a ‘deemed’ rate automatically and these tend to be expensive. It doesn’t have to be this way when, in a few minutes, the D-Energi team can find cheaper business electricity and gas deals.

Find and compare business gas deals

As mentioned, the process to find and compare business gas deals is similar to that when you search for electricity providers.

While most firms will be spending less on their gas bills than for electricity, it’s still a worthwhile exercise in sourcing a new supplier.

Along with appreciating the unit costs and standing charges, a busy business owner may also need to appreciate whether they need a fixed or variable rate and whether they would prefer to sign up for more than one year because this is the opportunity to access even cheaper prices to help with cashflow planning.

There’s a lot to consider when you need to compare business energy quotes between providers and the friendly team at D-Energi will be able to help and offer advice that will benefit your firm and its profitability.
