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 with energy bills! Rises in gas and electricity push more people into fuel poverty.

by D-ENERGi

 

The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has recently reported that the  prices in gas and electricity at the end of last year are expected to have pushed more than  400,000 households in England into fuel poverty. A household is considered to be in fuel poverty if it spends more than 10% of its income on heat and power. The DECC report, which can be found below, also states that in Scotland 28% of the population were fuel poor with Wales at 26% and England at 16%. D-ENERGi encourages anyone who is struggling with their gas and electricity bills to speak to their supplier as soon as possible to arrange a fair payment plan. Failure to do this may lead to further late payment charges being applied to your accounts.

Help with bills!

If you are struggling to pay your bills help is available. You can get help with heating through the Warm Front scheme, which helps your domestic property to become more energy efficient thus reduce your heating costs. Also another government initiative is the “Warm Home Discount Scheme”
