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.

How to Understand Business Electricity Prices

by D-ENERGi
 

While the process to find a new energy provider can appear complex, it’s important to understand how business electricity prices are calculated.

That’s because electricity suppliers will offer a business a range of fixed-rate tariffs, usually over one or two years and some will offer three or five years.

For some firms, this longer contract is worth considering since the prices are likely to be cheaper and help protect the business from any potential future price increases.

The tariff may also come with a discount should the business pay by direct debit and it’s also possible to source green energy options which may be attractive for those firms looking to boost their green credentials.

Finding business gas suppliers UK

This issue of longer contracts also extends to finding business gas suppliers UK and for both electricity and gas, there are other influences on the prices being quoted.

The obvious factors will include how large your business is and how many employees you have and some new energy providers may offer an energy consultancy to help you reduce consumption levels.

This consultancy will not only help reduce your gas bills even further but may also look at your electricity and water bills to ensure that you have not been overcharged by a provider.

Not every potential energy supplier will offer a consultancy but it’s something that is worth considering as part of a package when deciding to switch providers.

Cheap business gas prices

Finding cheap business gas prices will also mean appreciating that the location of your business will also have an influence.

That’s because prices vary on a regional basis and you’ll need to contact several potential providers to ensure you are on the best tariff.

The easiest way of going about this is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who have access to the entire market and can find in just a few minutes, the best deal for meeting your needs.

Alternatively, you could use an online comparison site for this purpose or speak with providers directly but both routes can be time-consuming and there may be better deals available since neither will be searching for the whole market.
