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.

Our Review of Business Electricity Prices Per kWh

by D-ENERGi
 

If you need to review business electricity prices per kWh to help your firm or organisation save money, then there’s expert help at hand.

And while you could spend time researching how the business and commercial electricity prices are put together by suppliers, there’s an easy way of working out whether there are savings to be enjoyed.

This is particularly the case if you’ve just received your renewal notice and your supplier is proposing a big price increase.

This is the perfect time to search potential providers because failing to act will see you either being moved to the dearer prices or to ‘deemed’ rates which could be even higher.

Compare business electricity prices per kWh

It’s important that you compare business electricity prices per kWh because this is how much you pay for the actual energy your firm consumes.

And while wholesale prices have remained fairly stable recently, this is still an opportunity to lower costs.

However, while you should always be looking at paying a lower unit price for the amount of energy your firm consumes, you also need to take into account the standing charge.

Indeed, the standing charge pays for the energy to be delivered and this is not a fixed fee and will vary between providers so you could end up paying more than you currently do without realising.

That’s why when you are negotiating a new deal, you should always look at what the annual cost of your commercial electricity contract is going to be and whether it’s going to save you money.

Lower your business gas prices per kWh

You may also be looking to lower your business gas prices per kWh to boost your savings.

Again, the D-Energi team can help you achieve this and while providers cannot offer dual-fuel deals, as they can for our homes, you can have gas and electricity delivered by the same provider.

This may make the paperwork easier but it’s always worth searching warning signs what other providers are offering and then negotiating for a bespoke deal.

There may be terms within a contract that you may not understand and you may prefer to have experts take care of negotiations and deal with the paperwork for the switchover process.

Whichever route you decide to take when it comes to reviewing your firm’s business electricity prices per kWh, you should contact the friendly team at D-Energi who can – in just a few minutes – source a potentially cheaper deal.
