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.

If You Want to Save on Business Electricity

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are looking to reduce overheads and want to save on business electricity bills, then this article will help.

All firms and organisations should look at their costs on a regular basis and then consider whether they can reduce their energy bills by switching providers.

The market is a competitive one and the switchover process is straightforward and there’s no loss of supply.

Unfortunately, one recent government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms haven’t bothered switching in the last few years and are probably overpaying on their electricity bills.

Compare business electricity per kWh offers

The first step to save on electricity costs is to compare business electricity per kWh (kilowatt-hours) offers between providers.

To do this, you’ll need to find competitive quotes from suppliers and know when your current contract comes to an end.

You could contact the suppliers directly but you may find this is time-consuming and comparing their bespoke deals can be confusing.

There’s also the opportunity of using one of the many online business electricity comparison sites for this purpose.

The major downside is that the sites tend not to search the entire market, so there could be better offers available.

Not only should you check how many potential suppliers are being contacted to offer a quote on these sites, you will still need to speak with the recommended supplier directly for a bespoke deal.

Compare business energy per kWh costs

Indeed, when you need to compare business energy per kWh costs, it will pay to speak with the experts because there are several issues to consider.

Basically, you will receive a wide range of offers and deals but each supplier uses different criteria which will range from the location of your business as prices will vary on a regional basis.

In addition, a potential supplier will need to know how much energy your firm uses every year, how many employees you have and they may even want to know whether you have plans to expand.

All of these issues have a bearing on the prices being quoted and some suppliers will offer other incentives, including an energy consultancy to help you reduce energy consumption levels.

If you want to save on business electricity costs and would like to work with experts who can search the entire marketplace on your behalf, then you need to speak with the friendly D-Energi team today.
