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.

Do You Know Your Business Electricity Prices Per Kwh?


It’s not meant to be a trick question, but do you know your business electricity prices per kWh (kilowatt hour)?

It’s highly likely that for most busy business owners that you don’t know how much you are paying per kilowatt hour for your electricity needs.

This means that when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next bill, you will need to decide whether you want to search the marketplace for a better and cheaper deal. There are usually better offers available when you decide to switch electricity providers.

You could contact these providers directly or use a comparison site to find out what the potential savings are.

While the first route is time-consuming, which is not particularly attractive to a busy business owner, the second route means you run the risk that the site is not searching the entire marketplace so there could be better and cheaper deals available.

Also, the recommended supplier will still need to speak with you and take various details because their deal must be bespoke for meeting your needs. So, what appears to be a quick process may not be that quick in reality.

Cheaper business gas prices per kWh

The search for cheaper business electricity prices also extends to those firms and organisations wanting cheaper business gas prices per kWh too.

As with electricity, you’ll need to understand that a new gas offering will have two charges that make up your bill: they are the standing charge and the price per kilowatt hour.

The standing charge is the amount levied for paying the National Grid for delivering gas to your premises, while the price per kilowatt hour is the actual amount charged on the gas you use.

While gas bills tend to be much lower than electricity bills for firms today, you need to be wary about paying a low standing charge and a higher price per kilowatt hour than you currently do because there may be no savings made as a result.

Compare business electricity prices per kWh

Essentially, if a busy business owner cannot compare business electricity prices per kWh effectively when using a comparison site, then how do you go about doing this?

The best way is to speak with a team of experts who understand how the gas and electricity markets for business work and can access the entire marketplace to find the best cheap deal that will meet your firm’s needs.

Also, you may be reluctant to switch providers believing that the switchover process is complicated and time-consuming but you can get help with this too.

If you want cheaper business electricity prices per kWh, and also for gas – and have someone take care of the switchover process – then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi.
