The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

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.

Advice For When You Switch Energy Suppliers


Most business owners will appreciate that when they switch energy suppliers they could reduce their overheads substantially, but it’s important to seek advice beforehand.

That’s because there are lots of business energy suppliers in the market offering a range of tariffs and deals so finding one that suits your business may be more difficult and time-consuming than most business owners will appreciate.

Firstly, the deal offered to a business must be bespoke, which means comparing various deals from providers on a like-for-like basis can be confusing and difficult to do.

This means it’s important to speak with those who understand how the market works to see if there’s a better way and find a cheaper deal – and the D-Energi team is available for this.

Business owner wanting to undertake an energy switch

While we can enjoy dual fuel deals for our homes and there are also other schemes available to reduce costs, for example, the ‘Big London Energy Switch’ which sees lots of domestic users grouping together to negotiate terms, for a business owner wanting to undertake an energy switch, it’s more complicated.

For those who want a dual fuel deal for their business, then this is not possible but you can get the same supplier delivering both gas and electricity to your premises.

You could also use an online business energy comparison site to find a deal that will meet your needs but there are some issues with these; the first is that you will still need to negotiate directly with a supplier that is recommended and the site may not be searching all potential suppliers.

As a result, there may be better and cheaper energy providers available and they may offer other attractive benefits including a consultancy and the installation of smart meters, for example.

Energy solution provider offers a consultancy

When an energy solution provider offers a consultancy, it’s a great opportunity to reduce the amount of energy your firm uses to deliver real long-term savings which are in addition to the lower unit charges you will have to meet.

Your firm will also be helping the environment by reducing its energy needs and a smart meter may help to illustrate to you and your staff how and when they are using or wasting energy.

However, one national newspaper reports that some smart meters fitted in homes are not quite so smart and only deliver savings of £11 a year.

Also, some will stop working when the customer switches energy suppliers and some simply fail to work because of a poor signal.

However, for many firms, these smart meters may provide an ideal solution but the consultancy offering is certainly one to consider to reduce energy bills.

For more information about smart meters and enjoying an energy consultancy when your firm wants to switch energy suppliers, then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi.
