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.

Lowering Overheads with a Cheap Business Energy Deal

by D-ENERGi
 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could lower your overheads with a cheap business energy deal?

Obviously, the answer is yes and growing numbers of firms and organisations are looking to switch energy suppliers to enjoy cheaper rates and better levels of customer service.

All firms should look at their business energy costs every year and move supplier when necessary because the savings can be huge.

For instance, if you have a small firm you may think that it’s not worthwhile switching but if you could save hundreds of pounds every year by making one simple phone call that will lower your overheads and boost profits, you would do that.

Enjoying a cheap business electricity deal

Along with enjoying a cheap business electricity deal, there are also opportunities to reduce gas bills too. However, all firms and organisations will need electricity for their everyday functions such as running computers, powering kettles and having office lights.

There’s also a good case for larger firms and organisations to switch suppliers every year because their savings will be much more than those for a one-man band and could be several thousands of pounds which could be used to reinvest into the business.

In addition to the attractiveness of lowering a firm’s overheads, you could also access some of the other services being offered by a new supplier including having an energy audit.

This will see an expert looking at how your business operates and recommending ways of saving energy as well as money; these will be long term gains and you’ll be boosting your green credentials at the same time.

Looking for a cheap business gas deal

Along with electricity, many firms will be looking for a cheap business gas deal if they are large users of this fuel, particularly if they need to heat their premises in a cold winter.

Again, there is a wide range of potential suppliers available offering tariffs and deals that will meet your business needs.

While the prospect of switching energy supplier is an attractive one, you may be wondering about the best way of achieving this.

It is possible to source a new supplier using an online comparison website but the site may not be searching the entire energy market to find the best deal and, frustratingly for some firms, you will still need to contact the supplier directly for a bespoke quote.

This also highlights an issue of the difficulty you will find in trying to compare a like-for-like quote between suppliers since they will have slightly different offerings and tariffs.

 

Indeed, the best way to enjoy lower overheads with a cheap business energy deal is to speak with experts who understand how the business energy market works and that means speaking with the team at D-Energi.
