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.

Simple Tips for Cheap Business Electricity Prices Per kWh

by D-ENERGi
 

Whether your business is large or small, these simple tips will help you access cheap business electricity prices per kWh.

So, if your current supplier has told you what your next year’s deal will cost, this is the time to consider whether you should renew or switch your business electricity provider.

And since your energy costs will be a major overhead for your firm, there’s no reason whatsoever for you to be overpaying on your electricity bills.

Though you may be busy, and the prospect of calling providers individually may fill you with dread, there is an easy way of sourcing a new small business electricity supplier.

Compare business electricity prices per kWh between providers

The first step is to compare business electricity prices per kWh between providers and there are three ways of doing this:

  • You could contact the suppliers separately to ask how much a deal will cost
  • You could use compare business electricity prices online using a comparison site
  • Use the expertise of the friendly team at D-Energi.

 

There are a number of issues with the first two routes which need to be appreciated, including the time and effort required in contacting providers and then trying to compare bespoke deals on a like-for-like basis.

This then makes what should be a straightforward exercise a tad more complicated – and things aren’t that much easier using a small business electricity comparison site either.

That’s because the site may only have a restricted number of suppliers to bid – always check how many beforehand – and you will still have to contact the supplier that is recommended to negotiate a bespoke deal.

Check business gas prices per kWh

This issue also extends to those firms that need to check business gas prices per kWh between competitors.

Again, a firm could contact gas suppliers separately or use a business gas comparison website but the issues here are:

  • The site may not be checking the entire market
  • This means there could be cheaper providers available
  • You will not be aware of these
  • And you will still need to negotiate directly with a provider.

 

Perhaps the easiest way to search for cheap business electricity prices per kWh is to contact D-Energi who can search the entire market and negotiate a better deal and take care of the paperwork for the switching process. Call them today to find out more on 0800 781 7626.
