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.

Should You Switch Business Gas Suppliers UK?

by D-ENERGi
 

In answer to the question, “Should you switch business gas suppliers UK?”, then the answer is ‘Yes’.

However, you need to carry out the comparison exercise every year between business gas suppliers to see whether it’s worth switching in the first place, but there are three reasons to bear in mind:

  • Your firm will save money

Like switching suppliers at home, switching your business gas supplier could save hundreds of pounds for a small business every year.

  • Better customer service

If you’ve been disappointed with customer service, switching to a better provider may offer a better experience.

  • Your business ethos

You could switch to a green business energy provider and this may be more in line with your firm’s values.

Comparing business gas prices between providers

When it comes to comparing business gas prices between providers, there are a number of ways of finding these prices.

Some will take more effort than others, for example, you could contact suppliers directly and ask for a quote, but this can be time-consuming and comparing offers on a like-for-like basis can be complicated.

You could use a comparison site for business gas suppliers, but the site may not search all of the market and there could be better and cheaper providers available that will not be flagged up.

Alternatively, you could contact the experts at D-Energi who do search the market to find the best bespoke offer that will meet your firm’s needs.

Firms wanting cheaper business electricity prices

This expertise of sourcing a cheaper business gas supplier also extends to those firms wanting cheaper business electricity prices too.

The process is the same; a friendly team member will take a few details, search the business gas and electricity suppliers for a deal that matches your needs and which should deliver substantial savings on your current bill.

In addition, D-Energi can also take care of the switchover process so there are no headaches or distractions for any firm wanting to switch business gas and electricity suppliers to enjoy cheaper deals that will boost profitability.

If you would like to know more about switching business gas suppliers UK, then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi.
