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 Easy Guide to Switch Energy Suppliers

by D-ENERGi
 

The process to switch energy suppliers for a business is easier than it has ever been and can be done with just one phone call.

However, it always pays for you to learn more about how the business energy supply market works and what the current rates are for your firm.

These prices will vary depending on the firm’s size and energy needs and also for the regional location.

Obviously, bigger users of energy will gain more by switching suppliers since they will save substantial amounts of money – this could be thousands of pounds every year.

Undertaking an energy switch between suppliers

However, undertaking an energy switch between suppliers is not just about saving money, though this is a big incentive, it’s also about enjoying other services as well.

For instance, the business energy supply market is a competitive one and there are new entrants offering better levels of customer service and the potential for an energy audit.

This audit could lead to you and your business making considerable long-term savings by using less energy and it also means you will be doing your bit for the environment.

However, you may also find that when you begin your search for a new business energy supplier that the sheer range of tariffs and offers available means you may need some expert input to help you understand how the market works.

Speak with the experts at D-Energi

The best way of doing this is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who understand how to find the best energy deals for your business.

You could also use energy comparison websites and while they give a good indication of the prevailing market rates, you should be aware that they may not be searching the entire market to find the best deals.

On top of this, you may be surprised to learn that you will still need to speak with a supplier directly to give them your details so they can tailor their quote to meet your needs.

This last point means it is rather difficult to compare business energy quotes on a like-for-like basis.

Search for a new energy provider

As mentioned previously, the search for a new energy provider should not be focused solely on prices but on their whole offering; also, your firm’s location and how you want to pay your bills will also affect the prices being charged.
