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 When Swapping to a Cheap Business Gas and Electric Supplier

by D-ENERGi
 

A great way to reduce overheads is to swap to a cheap business gas and electric supplier and this article will offer some tips to do so.

The most important tip is to act when your current gas or electricity provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract.

That’s because this will open a window of opportunity for you to find a better and cheaper supplier before your current provider moves you onto a deemed contract where the rates tend to be dearer.

By spending just a few minutes speaking with the experts at D-Energi, you could access a cheaper and better deal from a new provider and have the switchover process undertaken for you.

It’s also important to be aware that there are other issues that a potential provider will be looking at when quoting a deal and they include your location, your business size and industry you are working in.

Cheap business gas supplier

Sourcing a cheap business gas supplier is straightforward and along with contacting D-Energi, you could contact a potential supplier directly or use a comparison website.

These comparison websites are undoubtedly very popular but you need to be aware that they may not be searching the entire business energy supply market.

As a result, there may be better deals and tariffs available that you will be unaware of so you should speak with a firm that has access to the entire marketplace – as D-Energi does.

Also, you may opt to use a comparison site in a bid to save time and avoid speaking with a supplier directly, but you’ll still need to speak with the provider because they must offer you a bespoke deal.

Understand how to compare business energy per kWh

If you decide to carry out the exercise yourself, then you’ll need to understand how to compare business energy per kWh because this is how the offer will be made.

The kilowatt-hour is how much energy your firm uses and the prices between suppliers will vary but you need to be aware that the standing charge is an additional cost.

Essentially, a potential new provider may offer a much lower price per kWh but increase their standing charge so you may not be saving money, or even worse, be spending more.

This is where the expertise of the D-Energi team will come into its own because they not only understand how the business energy supply market works, but they have access to the entire marketplace to get the best deal.
