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.

Bright Ideas to Reduce Your Commercial Energy Bill


When it comes to reducing your commercial energy bill, there are two effective ways of doing so and here we will explain more.

The first, and perhaps the most obvious method is to switch commercial energy suppliers.

The second way is to introduce various ideas to reduce how much energy your business consumes.

There are suppliers that will offer an energy consultancy to do this on your behalf when you switch to them and there are other ideas to reduce costs you could use alongside this.

They include replacing your light bulbs to energy saving bulbs which will have an immediate impact on your bill and you should also encourage staff to turn off lights they don’t need.

You could also remove unnecessary lamps in any area that is excessively lit and in rooms that are infrequently used you could install occupancy sensors that will automatically switch lights off.

Lower commercial energy prices to reduce overheads

For those firms and organisations that are looking for lower commercial energy prices to reduce their overheads, then they could find a new supplier as well as introducing energy-saving ideas.

There are some issues to consider when searching for a new energy provider and one of them is the fact that wholesale prices for energy vary on a daily basis.

Essentially, you may be able to source a great deal one day and then find that the market has moved and this deal is no longer available just 24-hours later.

Indeed, some firms may find that while the price of energy has fallen, their standing charges, which help to pay for the National Grid and the supply of energy to your premises, have risen substantially.

That’s because the cost of maintaining the National Grid is very expensive but these charges do vary between suppliers so it’s worth checking.

Sourcing a cheap commercial energy quote

As a busy business owner, you may struggle to find the time sourcing a cheap commercial energy quote that will meet your needs so you may decide to remain with your current supplier, even though there are cheaper deals available.

You could use an online comparison site but these may not be searching the entire marketplace or you could contact energy suppliers directly but this is a time-consuming process.

One of the best ways of finding a cheaper commercial energy quote is to act when your current supplier gets in touch with your next year’s contract details and use this prompt to speak with experts who can search the entire marketplace but who also have the expertise to find the best deal for your needs.

For many firms, this will mean contacting the experts at D-Energi who will spend a few minutes taking a few details and then scouring the market to deliver a bespoke deal that will reduce your energy overheads.
