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.

Leaving EU Equivalent to Writing a Blank Cheque

by
 

Leaving EU linked to writing blank cheques with no survey, assessments of risk or foundations says one of Britain’s leading Care Home providers.

 

Warnings have been written to staff of 14 000 by a personal felt duty from Chai Patel, the executive chairman of HC-One, regarding voting to leave the EU. Suggesting the leave would provoke risks to the “care we deliver, the livelihoods of our colleagues and the company’s future.” Patel contributed the previous as advice and the company is by no means telling their staff exactly how to vote.

HC-One runs hundreds of homes for the elderly, they evaluated the shortage in the UK’s nursing system and the urge for carers, housekeepers and catering staff in recent times.

“HC-One has relied on the work of colleagues from around the world, including Europe, to provide the kind of professional services we are proud of,” Patel said “Britain leaving the EU could have profound effect on our national economy and in turn on public spending. The care sector would struggle to absorb another cut in spending.”

Labour warned that a Brexit vote could lead to “deeper cuts to social care” and leave thousands of liable people without fundamental care and support.

Labour ventilated a new analysis regarding their recent finding that the funding for councils could be executed by more than £500m by the end of the decade in the event of a vote to leave the EU.

Heidi Alexander, the shadow in health care secretary, said “In the worst case scenario, the government would have to cut council budgets by more than half a billion pounds if it were to stick to its pledge of balancing the books by the end of the decade.”

She regarded today’s vote being “more than about our membership to the EU. It’s about protecting the people who rely on our public services from even deeper cuts under this Tory government.”

Labour have also disclosed that leaving the EU would harm funding for Britain’s young people as about £350m a year of cash from Brussels goes towards helping them into work.

Nick Thomas-Symonds, a shadow employment minister, said at a time when 865 000 16 – 24 year olds are not in education, employment or training and the government are slashing support for the long-term unemployed, Britain cannot afford to lost the billions of pounds of European money that fund schemes.

Gisela Stuart, Kate Hoey, John Mann and Graham Stringer said in a joint statement:

“Two-thirds of George Osborne and David Cameron’s austerity cuts could have been avoided if we had been able to keep the money we give to the EU and spend it at home instead.”

In conclusion, it is clear that the Social Care sector have a strict opinion on staying in the European Union in order to protect what they believe is right for the people in their industry. Something as a Nation we have to respect in this historic time in our life, is the opinion of others, which everyone is entitled to – as we know.
