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.

The Best Cheap Business Energy Guide

by D-ENERGi
 

Every firm in the UK, regardless of its size, will need to keep its premises warm and power lights and computers, which makes finding cheap business energy a priority.

However, since many business owners are very busy, it’s understandable that this issue may take a back seat but it’s important that you check every year that your firm is not overpaying for its energy needs.

That’s because a firm’s energy costs can be one of its largest expenses so controlling these costs will help boost profitability.

And for many firms, it’s important to understand that a proposed deal should save you money so you really should understand how your bill is structured since most suppliers will offer the information in different formats.

Search for cheap business electricity deals

In the search for cheap business electricity deals, for example, you should have a recent bill to hand because this will have important information, including:

  • The meter number which identifies your actual property location
  • Contract details so you can compare energy tariffs
  • Types of charges – whether your bill has been estimated or has accurate readings to reveal your consumption habits.

You can then hand this information to a potential business electricity provider so they can then compile the bespoke quote for meeting your needs.

Find a cheap business gas provider

As with electricity, when you need to find a cheap business gas provider they operate to certain criteria to put their bespoke tariff together. Some of the issues include:

  • Your firm’s location
  • The industry you work in
  • Your business size
  • How many people you employ
  • Whether you have plans for expansion.

It’s important to appreciate that no two bills for a firm will be exactly the same, so it always pays to shop around and you may find that some providers may decline to quote because of your firm’s location.

The other important consideration for the costs that will make up a potential energy bill, will be for your unit rate and the daily standing charge.

There’s a big difference between the two since the standing charge is a daily cost that is levied to pay for the delivery of energy to your premises.

The unit rate is the amount you will pay per kWh (kilowatt-hour) of energy your firm uses.

The easiest way to access cheap business energy for meeting your firm’s needs, and to do so quickly, is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who can search the entire market on your behalf to find the right deal for meeting your needs and then take care of the switchover process for you.
