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.

Tips to Compare Business Energy Deals

by D-ENERGi
 

The first thing to appreciate when it comes to a firm looking compare business energy deals is that the process is rather different than that for sourcing cheap energy deals for our homes.

For one thing, there are more business energy plans on offer than there are for domestic users and then finding which of these plans is the right one and how much it will cost is also going to take time.

On top of this, the business will also be affected by their location and size and the type of industry they are in.

Indeed, when it comes to comparing business energy prices it will pay to get several quotes online from various websites to get an idea of the market rates and then research further.

Looking to compare business electricity prices

It helps that when a firm is looking to compare business electricity prices that the suppliers will show their rates on their websites.

However, the rates being shown are generally those for the variable rate deemed contract which tend to be the most expensive price.

It should also be appreciated that the deemed contract is generally the automatic contract a firm will be rolled over onto should they not switch energy suppliers.

This means they will almost certainly achieve a lower rate by switching supplier and opting for a fixed term contract.

Firms looking to compare business gas prices

The same can be said for firms looking to compare business gas prices and again the contract that will be offered is dependent on the firm’s consumption habits and circumstances.

There’s no doubt that gas is a crucial part of the business’s needs whether it’s to heat a shop or help power the kitchen of a restaurant.

This also means that no two business gas contracts will be the same and should the firm be looking to compare gas and electricity prices online this will become apparent when they contact the supplier directly.

Indeed, this could be something of a shock since the price the supplier offers may differ widely from the attractive price the firm saw on the business energy comparison website.

That’s not the fault of the website or the supplier since they will need to offer a bespoke deal to help meet the firm’s own particular energy needs.

There is also a quick way to research the market thoroughly and finding a suitable deal without spending lots of time and energy researching what can be a confusing market.

 

That is to contact the helpful team at D-Energi who will have all of the latest deals and tariffs available and will be able to compare business energy deals and within a few minutes deliver a quote the firm will like and also deal with the switchover process itself.
