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.

One Phone Call Will Deliver Your Cheap Business Energy Needs

by D-ENERGi
 

It may sound as though it’s too good to be true but it is possible to deliver cheap business energy deals with just one phone call.

It certainly is if you take time out to speak with the D-Energi team.

Otherwise, you will need to search the Internet to find what deals and offers are available and then negotiate with a potential supplier to deliver real cost savings on your current overheads.

Indeed, before you even begin the process of comparing business utility prices, it is always worth spending the time preparing beforehand to ensure you get the best possible deal.

A cheap business electricity deal

For instance, if you are looking for a cheap business electricity deal then you need to know how much energy you use over a year and how much it costs; this will offer a better way to compare a new supplier’s prices.

Also, while undertaking the research it’s worth bearing in mind that there’s no good time to negotiate a new deal and, indeed, you will not be able to break a contract before it comes to an end.

Another reason for not hanging on for a few months waiting for prices to fall is that energy prices can fluctuate on a daily basis so there’s no better time for switching for business.

Cheap business gas deals

The advice is also suitable for those wanting cheap business gas deals as well and if you have new smart meters fitted, also known as half hourly or HH meters, then you can use that information.

Indeed, having the details from a smart meter will show a potential supplier not only how much energy you use you but when it is used so they may offer an incentive for switching to off-peak periods.

Also, to give a fair indication of the current market rates for your business needs, it might be worth spending time using a business energy comparison website to see what suppliers may be offering.

There is a caveat for using these sites, however, and that’s the fact they may not be searching the entire market or suppliers so some of the best deals may not be shown.

Also, even with a great offering from the comparison website, you will still need to contact the supplier and give them your details for a bespoke quote to be created.

 

As mentioned previously, it is possible to spend a few minutes on the telephone speaking with experts who understand how the market works in order to deliver your cheap business energy needs which means speaking with the D-Energi team.
