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.

Is An Energy Consultancy for You?

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are a business owner and wondering whether an energy consultancy might be for you and your firm, then this article will explain why it will be.

Firstly, an energy consultant will help you and your business reduce the amount of energy that you use to help deliver real long-term savings that will help boost profitability.

In addition, an energy consultancy will see you reduce energy usage to help boost your environmental credentials.

But the energy consultant’s work is more involved than that because they will have an in-depth knowledge of the marketplace to ensure you are on the right deal and tariff.

Energy services offering

If an energy consultancy sounds attractive, then the team at D-Energi can help deliver this as part of their energy services offering.

This work is not just limited to businesses as organisations of all sizes can benefit by reducing their energy bills and doing their bit for our environment.

The energy consultant will also understand the relevant laws and how they impact on a firm or organisation and even look at previous bills to ensure you have not been overcharged by your energy supplier.

That’s because billing mistakes do occur and a systematic auditing process will highlight what these are as part of the energy services offering.

Energy service company wanting to attract you as a customer

This consultancy service is also offered by an energy service company wanting to attract you as a customer and there’s a lot to recommend signing up.

In addition to accessing much lower energy rates, the knock-on effect of having a consultant ensure you are not be paying more than is necessary will deliver real cost savings that make an impact.

Indeed, all firms and organisations should be looking at their overheads on a regular basis and while we cannot avoid paying for energy, it is a service that we can make cheaper.

Obviously, business owners could approach energy suppliers and energy consultants directly to access cheaper bills or they could use one of the comparison sites for this purpose.

However, approaching suppliers directly can be time-consuming and the energy comparison site may not be checking all of the potential energy providers.

This means that the team of experts at D-Energi will be able to search the entire marketplace and organise an energy consultancy to be undertaken to help your firm reduce its bills.
