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.

Top Business Energy Comparison Tips

by
 

If you run a business, be it any size from SME to multinational, then it’s important for your bottom line that you’re not overspending in any way shape or form. When it comes to your energy provider it is possible to switch your tariff or provider to save a significant sum, but unlike with your household bills a business tariff is bespoke to the needs of your business and as such can vary wildly. Below we’ll list a few of our insider tips to ensure your business can save money via energy comparisons:

Compare Prices

When you’re looking for the best deal it helps to get a breakdown of unit rates and standing charges – this will keep you much more informed about what’s available and how much you should be paying as opposed to relying on estimated annual costs.

Hit The Phones

If you don’t ask, you don’t get! With price comparisons firmly fixed in your head you have a ballpark figure for what the ‘going rate’ for business energy is but that doesn’t mean you can’t haggle. Get in touch with brokers to push them down on price but don’t be scared to then take this figure you’ve reached directly to the energy provider either to cut out the middle man.

Fixed Tariff

Fixed tariffs are becoming the norm when it comes to business energy and it’s not uncommon for businesses to get a two or even three year fixed tariff. This varies depending on the supplier, and the longer fixed terms will tend to be more expensive as they’re constructed with a view to protecting them against any price rises in the future.

No Cooling Off

When it comes to business energy tariff’s there’s no cooling off period which makes it doubly important that you are 100 percent satisfied with the deal you’ve haggled. On top of this you will be locked into the contract once it is signed off meaning no switching if a better deal turns up six months in.

Be Aware Of Automatic Renewals

Some energy tariffs will automatically renew on a rolling contract or after a particular period, locking you into another tariff. The onus is on you to arrange a new deal prior to your current one expiring during a one-to-six-month renewal period or else you’ll be locked into the same contract you have been on.
