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.

Sourcing Cheap Business Energy Deals

by D-ENERGi
 

For many busy business owners, sourcing cheap business energy deals can appear to be a distraction too far.

However, reducing your firm’s energy overheads is a great way to boost profitability and the process is a lot simpler than many will appreciate.

While you could contact energy providers directly, you should use the expertise of the D-Energi team to find the contract that best meets your needs at lower prices.

This process will take a few minutes and the advantage is that the friendly team is able to search the entire market on your behalf to find these deals.

It’s certainly worth looking into the prospect of reducing energy overheads by up to 40%, which is an incentive for spending a small amount of time doing so.

Find cheap business electricity and gas deals

But that may not be the case should you decide to use a comparison website to find cheap business electricity and gas deals for your firm.

It’s a good idea to check just how many providers the comparison website will contact to provide a quote and it’s unlikely to be the entire market.

This obviously means that there could be cheaper and better deals available that you will be unaware of and you will still need to speak with the recommended provider.

That’s because the provider must offer you and your business a bespoke deal and you will still have to do some negotiation and give details so the provider can tailor their offering to suit.

The prices being quoted will vary between providers and are influenced by how much electricity and gas your firm consumes, how many employees you have, the type of industry you work in and even your regional location.

Search for cheap business gas and electricity deals

The search for cheap business gas and electricity deals may also extend to contacting these providers directly.

This is a time-consuming undertaking because you will need to give the same details every time and then compare their bespoke offerings, which can be confusing.

In addition, you may want to consider other incentives to move to a new energy provider such as having an energy consultancy undertaken.

This consultancy will help your business reduce its energy consumption to help deliver even larger savings and boost profitability.
