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.

Your Business Can Save with an Energy Switch

by D-ENERGi
 

If your business could benefit with cheaper business gas and electricity deals then you need to consider an energy switch.

If you contact D-Energi team the process to find a cheaper deal will take just a few minutes and the process of switching energy suppliers can be done in a few easy steps.

The savings to be made can be huge, even a single person business can save several hundred pounds every year depending on the business they are in and levels of energy use. Obviously, larger firms will save much, much more.

So, if you are looking to save on your commercial energy costs then it will pay to have experts do the legwork for you but you can research the market to find out how much you could save by switching.

Process to switch energy suppliers

The process to switch energy suppliers is straightforward and it begins with finding a deal or tariff that best meets your business needs. This is also easy to do and you can contact a supplier directly and ask for a quote or use an online comparison website.

While the website may give an insight into what the market rates for your business will be, you need to bear in mind that the comparison site may not be searching the entire market.

This means that there are smaller suppliers that may be available with much cheaper prices and a better offering, and this may include, for instance, a consultancy service to help you lower your energy bills even further.

Using an online comparison website to switch energy providers

Also, when using an online comparison website to switch energy providers, you will still need to speak with the supplier directly because they must offer you a bespoke quote that best meets your needs.

Again, this does sound like a time-consuming exercise but not enough firms have been undertaking this work every year to lower their overheads.

According to a survey by the Competition and Mergers Authority, around 40% of firms have never switched suppliers which means they are likely to be paying more than they need to for their energy needs.

By speaking with the friendly D-Energi team you will find out in just a few minutes how much you could save by switching your business energy supplier. The team just needs a few pieces of information, most of which will be found on your latest business gas or electricity bill.

It’s also important to understand that if you’re looking for gas and electricity suppliers that you cannot access a dual fuel deal for business, as you can for your home, and you’ll need to speak with each supplier separately.

 

Again, the D-Energi team will be able to explain more and help you find the best deal to make an energy switch a worthwhile and rewarding exercise.
