We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following on the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS):

  • The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) applies to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1st December 2021 as well as to deemed, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts. It will apply to energy usage from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023, running for an initial six-month period for all non domestic energy users..
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements. Customers do not need to apply for the scheme or contact us.
  • 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.
  • 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.

5 Facts About Energy Efficient Lighting For Businesses


1 – Energy efficient lighting will reduce your business electricity bills


One of the most important facts to consider about energy efficient lighting is that it helps businesses to save on lighting bills. By switching from traditional or halogen lighting in an office or other working space, businesses can save incredible amounts of energy. Here are just some of the best statistics:

  • By switching a 75 watt incandescent light bulb to an LED light, companies could save up to £10 per bulb per year!
  • LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than an old halogen bulb
  • Switching to energy efficient LED bulbs could help you lower your company’s carbon footprint


2 – LEDs are the most adaptable light fitting


LED light bulbs are the most adaptable type of energy efficient light fitting. They can be used in almost all settings and are the ideal solution for replacing traditional bulbs. LED light bulbs can be used for general lighting, outdoor lighting, spotlights, dimmable lights and in chandeliers. This also makes LEDs perfect for businesses in a wide range of industries requiring various levels of lighting in a number of environments.

3 – Companies can no longer produce halogen bulbs


Lighting manufacturers are actually no longer allowed to produce and sell halogen lights. This has helped to introduce the phase out of traditional inefficient lighting and instead encourage both companies and households to make the switch to energy efficient lighting like LEDs. Where you may find halogen bulbs is in places like ovens and security lights or in a store where old stock is being sold.

4 – Linear fluorescent lamps (LFLs) are most commonly used in offices


For large office spaces and warehouses, businesses can opt to use LFLs, these are modern strip lights that are capable of emitting a good amount of quality light. As opposed to traditional strip lights, which didn’t offer a good lifespan, LFLs are far more energy efficient and can help businesses save on their business electricity bills.

5 – Lighting accounts for around 20% of business energy consumption


Businesses may be shocked to discover that around 20% of their energy consumption comes from lighting. In order to keep usage low and costs down, now is the perfect time to reconsider the lighting solutions your business uses and switch to energy efficient lighting, either choosing LED lights or LFLs.
