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.

Switch on to Cheap Business Energy

by D-ENERGi
 

One effective way of saving money on a firm’s overheads is to switch on to cheap business energy deals to lower your gas and electricity bills.

While many firms and organisations will complete this exercise when their current supplier contacts them to inform them of what their contract rates next year will be, not all firms will then complete the switchover process.

That may be down to the firm believing that they aren’t saving much money by switching providers and it is probably too complex a process to undertake. This is not the case and it is likely that the firm concerned is simply looking at the ‘Big Six’ energy providers.

But if they looked at the entire marketplace to find a more competitive supplier, they will undoubtedly save on their energy overheads and some firms could save up to 25% by simply switching providers.

Find a cheap business electricity deal

It also needs to be pointed out that the switchover process is seamless and when you find a cheap business electricity deal to suit your needs, there will be no loss of supply. This will be a crucial aspect of most firms when they look to find a cheaper energy supplier.

Indeed, nearly every firm and organisation will need a supply of electricity for them to operate on a daily basis and many may be wary about the prospect of losing their supply and not being able to function.

While the electricity and gas supply markets for business have been deregulated in the UK, there is still a watchdog, it’s called Ofgem, to ensure that a firm delivers the deals and offerings it promises and ensures the market works effectively.

There are several ways for firms to find a cheap business energy deal and that is to contact energy providers directly, give them a few details and then see who has the best offering. Obviously, this can be a time-consuming process when business owners are likely to be busy with their everyday activities.

Search for cheap business gas and electricity providers

In the search for cheap business gas and electricity providers, a firm could use a comparison site to find the latest deals and the sites will give an indication of what a competitive price for their business will be; you can then use this information and negotiate a cheaper deal with your current provider.

Alternatively, with this marketplace price in mind, you could speak with the business energy supply experts at D-Energi who will be searching the entire marketplace, which the comparison website may not be doing, to find a deal that will probably beat their current offering.
