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.

How to switch energy supplier for a business

by D-ENERGi
 

If your business would like to switch energy supplier to save on costs, then this article is for you.

That’s because the process to switch energy supplier is straightforward but many firms may believe that sourcing a new supply for their premises is going to be a time-consuming process.

To a point, that is true but there are experts in the field who will be able to do the heavy work to ensure that the business gets the very best possible deal available and saves money by doing so.

This is where the energy switching experts at D-Energi come in because they have the experience and expertise to find the best deals possible from a wide range of potential business energy suppliers.

This is also an effective way to reduce overheads for the business and also save time and money in the time it takes to find a new energy supplier.

The process to energy switch is straightforward

 

Indeed, the process to energy switch is straightforward and it will help if the business has their latest bills to hand so the vital information can be given to a potential new supplier and they can also work out how much energy the business is using and tailor a competitive quote to suit.

It should also be appreciated that business energy suppliers are not just interested in the larger organisations but also in micro-businesses and the process to switch is simpler today than it has been previously.

That is because Ofgem, the energy markets regulator, brought in rules that gave businesses the freedom they need to change their business electricity or gas contract more easily.

The best way to switch business energy supplier is to begin the process while there is more than 30 days remaining on the organisation’s current energy contract.

One reason for this is that Ofgem now demands that energy suppliers contact their micro-business customers around 60 days before their current contract ends to tell them how much energy they use every year.

Prices being offered by their business energy supplier rivals

 

More importantly, the organisation’s current energy supplier must tell their customer how their energy deal compares with the prices being offered by their business energy supplier rivals and how much the current supplier is going to charge under a new contract.

This is probably an important impetus for a business to pick up the telephone and begin the process to finding a cheaper business energy supplier with an organisation that can do this smoothly and quickly.

It’s also important to remember that when an organisation decides to switch energy suppliers there is no interruption in the energy supply and the helpful team at D-Energi will be able to give more help and advice on the process.
