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.

Use The Experts To Compare Business Gas Prices

by D-ENERGi
 

If you are looking to use experts to compare business gas prices to find you the best deal on offer, then welcome to D-Energi.

We have the expertise and experience to search the entire market and find a deal that will reduce your overheads.

So, whether you run a large business or organisation, or if you are a micro-business, there’s no reason for paying over the odds for your gas bill.

However, if you have never bothered switching supplier in recent years, then you could be paying more than is necessary.

But before you do undertake the switchover process, you should know more about the business gas contracts on offer as well as electricity offerings.

Compare business electricity providers

Perhaps the easiest and most tempting way to compare business electricity providers and gas suppliers is to use one of the many online sites for this purpose.

Not only are they easy to use, but they also search a number of suppliers to find you a cheaper deal.

However, there are some issues when using a business energy comparison site and the main one is the question of how many energy providers they are searching.

The site will make clear how many providers they will send your details to but there could be other, much cheaper providers who you will not get to hear about.

Compare business energy suppliers

You may also be searching for a facility to compare business energy suppliers who can provide gas and electricity in one deal, but this may not be possible since businesses cannot access a ‘dual fuel’ deal like we can for our homes.

This will not prevent you from signing up with the same energy supplier to provide your electricity and gas needs.

When you do find a new supplier, the switchover process is straightforward and for those firms who have never or haven’t bothered switching for several years, then there’s no loss of energy supply when you do switch.

It’s also important to appreciate that when you don’t move energy suppliers a regular basis, then it’s likely that they will roll you over onto a ‘deemed’ contract automatically and these contracts tend to have much dearer prices.

By spending a few minutes speaking with experts, you can search the entire marketplace for energy providers to see if it’s worthwhile switching suppliers and reducing your overheads.

The best way of achieving this is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who will take a few details and then search the marketplace on your behalf.
