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.

Business Electricity: How to Find the Best Rates in the UK


If you are running a business, then you will want to be able to easily compare business electricity prices per kWh to ensure you are not paying too much – as this could have a huge impact on your bottom line. After all, business electricity and gas are essential utilities to keep your business going, but this doesn’t mean you should let your energy spending get out of control.

When it comes to comparing business gas or business electricity prices per kWh then you need to be aware of a few things before you commit to a certain provider and contract, including:

What are business electricity rates?

Different utility providers will have different ways they use to calculate your total business energy bill, and understanding these different ways will help you to decide which one is best for you and your particular business.

The three main rates are:

  • Fixed-rate – this means you can expect a very similar electricity bill every month as your total consumption is being calculated at a constant rate throughout your contract.
  • Flexible rate – your rate will vary depending on market trends, and so some months may see you paying more for your energy than other months
  • Half hourly electricitya smart meter is used to record your specific energy usage and send it to your energy supplier at half hourly points throughout the day.


Each of these rates has its pros and cons. The biggest benefit of a fixed rate, for example, is that you always know what your rate is, whether the business energy market fluctuates wildly or not. However, the other side of this is that if rates do drop below your fixed rate, you won’t benefit from any reduction in costs.

This is where the benefit of a flexible rate comes in as if utility costs drop so do your bills. However, on the flip side of this, your monthly payments will also go up if the cost of utilities goes up.

The benefit of half-hourly electricity is that you always know how much you are spending on business electricity and so can make adjustments to your usage quickly. However, it does also mean that your energy provider may decide to charge you higher rates at peak hours as well.

The easiest way to find out the best business rates for both gas and electricity is to contact the team at D-ENERGi. We can quickly compare business electricity and business gas prices per kwh – saving you both time and money.
