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.

Source Cheap Business Energy Suppliers

by D-ENERGi
 

One of the most effective ways of boosting profits is to reduce overheads, which means sourcing cheap business energy suppliers will be paramount for this purpose.

Unfortunately, there are lots of companies and organisations who are unwittingly paying more than is necessary for their business energy supply.

Usually, this is because they have remained with one energy provider and it’s likely they have been rolled onto a more expensive contract automatically.

If you don’t want this to happen to you, or if it already has, then you need to examine potential suppliers when your current provider gets in touch with your next year’s contract rates.

New business electricity suppliers

Searching for new business electricity suppliers is straightforward and the switchover process is simple too.

The business electricity supply market place is a competitive one in the UK and it’s likely that you will find a cheaper deal.

Along with contacting providers directly, you could use a business electricity supplier comparison website for this purpose.

While the sites are easy-to-use, you should appreciate that they may search the whole supply market and only have a restricted number of suppliers that are being asked to quote.

The obvious downside to this is that there could be cheaper and better providers available that won’t be asked to quote so you may end up paying more than is necessary for your energy supply.

You will also need to speak with the supplier because they must offer a bespoke energy deal that will meet your firm’s needs.

Finding cheaper business gas suppliers

The situation for finding cheaper business gas suppliers is similar to the one for finding electricity providers.

There are lots of business gas providers available and they are competing to attract you as a new customer – it’s also important to appreciate that you shouldn’t just focus your attention on the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers but shop around some of the smaller firms to see what they will offer.

However, as with electricity, you may be confused about how a business gas supply deal is put together since this must be a bespoke offering so it may be wise to speak to those who understand how the market works.

Fortunately, there’s a team of friendly experts at D-Energi who can explain more about how you can source cheap business energy suppliers – and they can find a new provider and deal with the switchover process to help you boost profitability.
