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 Energy Suppliers That Meet Your Needs


Shopping around to find business energy suppliers can be a time-consuming and confusing process but it is possible to do it quickly and efficiently.

While many firms will be looking to source business energy suppliers who will help them reduce their bills and overheads, others will be looking to receive better customer service and some will offer a business energy audit as well.

Indeed, there are a lot of reasons why the energy audit will prove beneficial since it will help a firm reduce their energy consumption which will, in turn, help them lower their bills.

And by improving business energy efficiencies means the firm will also be boosting their green energy credentials as a result.

So, while many firms will opt to remain with their current energy supplier which may be one of the ‘big six’ firms, they may be paying a premium for the privilege.

That is to say, if they have never switched business energy suppliers then they are probably paying more for their energy needs than is necessary.

All firms and organisations should be looking at their overheads on a regular basis which means looking at how much they are paying for business electricity and gas use.

Firms should switch their business gas suppliers on a regular basis

Indeed, the government is keen that firms should switch their business gas suppliers on a regular basis – as well as business electricity suppliers – since this will encourage competition in the marketplace and lead to prices falling.

It’s also worth noting that a survey by the Competition and Markets Authority revealed that 40% of firms in the UK have never switched their business energy supplier.

That’s a worrying statistic since that means there are lots of companies who are probably paying more for their energy as a result.

Unfortunately, there is no way around the prospect of not paying energy bills since all firms and organisations need energy, whether it’s electricity or gas, for their everyday needs.

Some firms may claim that they regularly look at the market because they visit comparison websites to find what the cheapest energy prices might be.

There are two issues with those firms who do this and the first is that the price on the website may not be the price they will end up paying.

Energy price comparison website for business electricity suppliers

Also, the business energy price comparison website for business electricity suppliers, for instance, may not be looking at the entire market and may, instead, be looking at a restricted number of business energy suppliers.

Indeed, most firms will not know whether they are paying a fair price for their electricity and gas use and without keeping track of the market on a regular basis, they still will not know.

One effective way of finding just how much money can be saved is to contact those who understand the market and will know what the latest tariffs and deals are which means contacting energy brokers.

There’s no doubt that the growth in the number of independent business energy suppliers has had a positive impact on the country’s energy market.

That’s because competition has increased but for prices to fall further, more firms need to undertake the business energy switchover process which will also encourage diversity and greater choice when conducting future negotiations.

However, as mentioned previously, this article is not just about accessing cheaper business energy bills but also finding a deal that best meets a company’s needs.

Some energy suppliers will help the firm

For instance, some energy suppliers will help the firm understand where and when they are using energy and help them reduce consumption and develop their management strategy.

This will help boost their ‘green’ credentials and meet any environmental obligations as well.

All firms have a responsibility to reduce their consumption so they will also reduce their bills.

A new business energy supplier can also highlight moving the business to an off-peak rate so more money can be saved.

And let’s not forget that with the big energy supply firms they don’t have to strive so hard in delivering customer service since they are major players that dominate the market and make lots of money regardless.

Smaller business energy suppliers

With smaller business energy suppliers, they are more receptive to their customer’s needs and will make efforts in delivering the service and supply their customers are looking for.

Also, some of the smaller energy suppliers may have innovative ways of boosting a firm’s savings and will look to working with them to maintain a healthy relationship that serves them both.

Indeed, most firms are not aware of just how easy it is to switch business energy suppliers and the process is hassle free and straightforward and there is help for the switchover process as well.

It’s also important to appreciate that there will be no loss of energy to the firm during this switch over process.
