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.

Why You Must Review Business Gas Suppliers UK

by D-ENERGi
 

If you want to reduce your business gas overheads, then it’s important that you review business gas suppliers in the UK to find the best deals and incentives.

Unfortunately, most firms will be overpaying for their business electricity and gas needs and one government survey highlights that 40% of firms haven’t bothered switching for several years.

This means that when they do not compare the market when their current contract comes up for renewal, they are missing out on potentially saving a large amount of money on their overheads.

This then means an opportunity to boost profitability has been missed and by searching the market, your firm will also be boosting competition between business gas providers.

The lowest business gas prices available

And while most firms are paying less on their gas overheads, that’s no excuse for not checking every year that they are on the lowest business gas prices available when they need to renew.

The process can be quick and easy, particularly if you use experts such as D-Energi or you could contact gas suppliers individually.

This is obviously a time-consuming process and there’s a risk that you will restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ suppliers and find they have fairly similar deals and prices to offer you.

Alternatively, you could use a small business gas comparison website to find out what potential deals are available and this is a quick and easy way to find the market rate for a firm of your size and location.

The issue you need to be aware of is that the comparison platform may not be searching many potential gas providers and it’s unlikely they will be searching the entire market.

Searching for the cheapest business electricity prices

This issue also extends to those business owners who are searching for the cheapest business electricity prices for meeting their needs.

While the market for electricity and gas suppliers is a competitive one, you need to be reassured that you are on the best price possible when you search – and it would be of great assistance if you could deal with experts who know how this market works. Plus they can also take care of the switchover process.

In the case of D-Energi, the team of experts can search the entire marketplace and also take care of the paperwork.

In addition, it is possible to find a supplier with an incentive other than cheap prices, such as having a dedicated account manager to help with the smooth running of your account.
