The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following on the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS):

  • The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) applies to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1st December 2021 as well as to deemed, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts. It will apply to energy usage from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023, running for an initial six-month period for all non domestic energy users..
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements. Customers do not need to apply for the scheme or contact us.
  • 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.
  • 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.

How to Find the Cheapest Business Electricity Supplier

by D-ENERGi
 

Keeping control of overheads is important for all firms, which is why it’s crucial to find the cheapest business electricity supplier for meeting your needs.

Expensive electricity bills will affect profitability and your business’s viability will be threatened if you don’t keep a close eye on expenditure.

However, one of the issues when it comes to finding the cheapest electricity supplier for small business is that most of them will not publish a list of their tariffs for you to peruse.

This means that you will need to go to some time and trouble in finding a deal that will best meet your needs.

Cheapest business electricity rates UK

Finding the cheapest business electricity rates UK can be done in a number of ways, which include:

  • The easiest way is to simply call up an electricity provider to ask how much they will charge you
  • Another easy step is to use business energy comparison websites to see what potential deals are available
  • But the best and quickest way of scouring the entire marketplaces is to call the experts at D-Energi.

 

This last point is really important because when you compare business electricity prices online, the sites are unlikely to be searching for the whole market and obviously contacting every provider will be simply too time-consuming.

It’s always worth checking when you consider using a comparison service to see how many potential providers they will approach to offer a quote and you also need to appreciate that you will need to negotiate directly with the recommended provider because they must offer you a bespoke deal.

The cheapest business electricity prices

This search for the cheapest business electricity prices should be carried out every year, preferably when your current provider gets in touch to tell you of your next year’s contract.

This is an opportune moment to see whether you can save on your electricity overheads with another provider because failing to act may see your business being moved across to out of contract rates, which tend to be a lot more expensive.

If this inaction includes you, then you won’t be surprised to hear that one government survey revealed that 40% of firms have not bothered switching energy providers in the last few years.

And unless you are a microbusiness, you may find that you are tied into the more expensive contract for the next 12 months so when it next comes to switching providers you could make substantial savings indeed.

It’s best to act now and deal with those who understand how to find the cheapest business electricity supplier for meeting your needs and that means contacting the experts at D-Energi today.
