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 On Sourcing Cheap Business Electricity Deals


One effective way of lowering overheads is to reduce your firm’s energy bills but how do you source the best cheap business electricity deals?

The best advice for doing this is to know when your contract endpoint is and then terminate the contract when it’s allowed.

The reasons for doing so are twofold: firstly, you will avoid being rolled over onto a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to be much higher than contracts for new customers, and secondly, you will be forced to find a new supplier.

It’s always important when checking quotes from suppliers that you don’t just focus on the unit rate per kWh since a potential supplier may offer a low unit cost, but have a high standing charge – so there will be no effective saving.

Cheap business gas provider

This idea of terminating automatically a deal with a current supplier also extends to those firms and organisations wanting a cheap business gas provider.

Again, a business gas quote will have two elements, and you’ll need to focus on the unit charge plus the standing charge to find out what your overall annual cost is likely to be.

It is also a good idea to search the business energy market every year to ensure you are on the best deal possible and are not paying more than you should be doing.

It may also be a good idea to get a quote from one or more of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers and then find out what another potential supplier can offer.

For those firms looking to switch, it’s also a good idea to have your current supplier offer a quote and ask if there are any additional discounts from each supplier you approach.

Finding a new cheap business energy provider

So far, we haven’t mentioned using one of the online comparison sites for finding a new cheap business energy provider.

You could use one of these sites to get an idea of the market rate for your size and type of business, but you need to be aware that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace.

The search for cheap business energy deals should also include the efforts from an energy broker who has a wide and deep knowledge of the business energy supply market.

As a result, they may find better and cheaper deals for meeting your business needs, so you should use an organisation that has access to the entire marketplace and can then negotiate on your behalf and deal with the switch over process.

This will mean speaking with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to answer any questions you have about sourcing cheap business electricity deals.
