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.

Slash Your Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by D-ENERGi
 

If your firm or organisation is a large consumer of electricity, then who would not want to slash their half hourly electricity prices?

And since the savings can be particularly impressive, it’s something that every business should strive to do.

However, finding a new half hourly electricity supply deal at lower rates can be confusing and you will need to undertake a thorough procurement process to ensure you get the deal that meets your needs.

In addition, the contracts tend to be more complex and complicated than those for small and medium-sized businesses, so you’ll need to take advice from those who understand how the market works to see that the contract is suitable.

For many firms, this will mean speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who have years of experience and experts to help you in this procurement process.

Switch between half hourly electricity suppliers

The process itself will ensure that the switch between half hourly electricity suppliers is a seamless one and there will be no loss of energy when you begin the process.

All that will change is that your bill will come from your new supplier.

For large users of electricity, it’s important that you check the electricity suppliers market every year to ensure that you are not paying more than is necessary for your energy use.

By doing so, you will be taking big steps to ensure that you are not overpaying and boosting profitability at the same time.

Half hourly electricity meters

For those large electricity consumers who may not know whether they have half hourly electricity meters, then you can check the meter itself and it will have the supply number beginning with ‘00’.

It’s likely that your supplier will have installed this meter because you are a large consumer of electricity and the meter itself will ensure that your usage is recorded every 30 minutes.

This data is sent to your supplier every half-hour, which means there’s no need for estimated bills.

However, one of the big benefits of having a half hour meter fitted is that the data can be used by you to reduce consumption and by a potential supplier who can analyse the information to deliver a bespoke deal.

While the opportunity to slash half hourly electricity prices will be restricted to large consumers, it will be time well spent speaking with the experts at D-Energi to ensure you are accessing the best possible deal when it comes to renewing your electricity supply contract.
