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 Gas Prices Explained


If you are looking for the cheapest business gas prices then having an understanding of business gas prices, plans and contracts is important, so that you know you are getting the best deal.

At D-ENERGi we know that no two businesses are the same, we’ve been in the business for over 18 years after all.

The size of your business is really important when you want to compare business gas prices, as it can be the difference between paying 4.3p a unit to 5p a unit, and 19p and 25p a day standing charges.

Business Size

Business gas rates are usually based on four sizes of business:

Micro – less than 10 employees and turnover less than £2 million

Small Business – Less than 50 employees and turnover less than £10 million

Medium Business – Less than 250 employees and turnover less than £36

Large Business – 250 employees or more

Different types of tariffs

The gas market can be quite volatile, which means business gas prices can change quite a lot in a short space of time, and this can have an influence on the type of pricing plan or contract you opt for:

• A fixed rate tariff means your price will be locked in place for three years – the benefit of which is that you won’t pay any more if the price of gas increases, however, you also won’t be able to pay less if the price of gas drops

• If you used a lot of gas in your business you may want to think about a flexible tariff, as this lets you pay upfront. Again, you will lose out on this if the price of gas drops after you have paid, and price rises can mean it is hard to budget.

• The other option is a pass-through contract, which is a mix of fixed-rate and flexible rate tariffs. You get a lower fixed rate unit price, but flexible standing charges which will fluctuate in line with government policy.

• If you want to improve your business’s sustainability efforts then you should look at eco tariffs.
