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.

Are Your Business Electric Prices Correct?


All firms and organisations will appreciate the need to control their overheads, but are your business electric prices correct?

Unfortunately, unless you carry out a regular analysis to see what energy firms are charging businesses today, then the answer is that you probably don’t know.

And if you haven’t switched electricity providers in recent years, then it’s highly likely that you don’t know how much you are paying for your electric.

To make matters worse, you may have been rolled over onto a contract with ‘deemed’ rates which tend to be dearer than for new customers, so not only do you not know how much you are paying but you are probably paying more than is necessary.

Process to obtain a commercial electricity quote

The process to obtain a commercial electricity quote for meeting your needs is straightforward and you could contact electricity providers directly to see how much your business would need to pay.

Alternatively, you could use one of the many business energy comparison sites to see what the market rate is for a firm of your size and location to see whether there are any savings to be made.

There are a couple of issues for those using comparison sites and the first is that the site may not search the entire market.

The other downside for a comparison site is that you will have to negotiate with a provider because they must offer you a bespoke deal that meets your needs so this can still become an involved process but it is to your advantage.

Also, you could use the information from the website to negotiate a better deal with your current electricity provider.

Comparing commercial electricity rates effectively

One of the big issues for comparing commercial electricity rates effectively is that, as we mentioned, the provider must offer a bespoke deal which then makes comparing these deals on a like-for-like basis more complicated.

There is a range of factors affecting the deal and these include how much electricity you will be needing, your geographic location and how many employees you have.

One effective way to access great commercial electricity rates is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who will be able to search the marketplace and every provider to see whether there is a better deal available.

In addition, the team can take care of the switchover process and help explain the finer points of a bespoke deal to ensure that you really are getting the deal that will meet your current and future needs.

If you want to know whether your business electric prices are correct, then you need to contact the D-Energi team today to find out and see if there are cheaper and better deals available.
