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.

Exploring The Market for Business Energy Suppliers


With some impressive savings to be had by switching gas and electricity suppliers, means there is a growing demand from firms to explore the market for business energy suppliers.

Their first impression may be that the market is complicated with lots of suppliers offering a huge variety of deals, offers, and tariffs.

There’s no doubt that this can be a confusing process but it will be time well spent as the firm will, more than likely, save a substantial amount of money.

As an indication, the firm should expect to save several hundred pounds, or even several thousands of pounds, depending on their energy needs and future use.

On top of this, a new supplier may also encourage an energy audit so that the firm’s consumption of energy can be reduced and the savings will be even greater.

How does a firm go about finding business electricity suppliers?

So, how does a firm go about finding business electricity suppliers in a keenly fought market with a wide range of suppliers available?

One idea is to do a simple Internet search and speak with suppliers separately to see what they have to offer.

This is a time-consuming approach and there’s no guarantee that the firm will not be signing up to a deal that is suitable and will not save them as much as they are expecting.

They could also use one of the business energy price comparison websites to find a cheaper deal and supplier; while the site will give an indication of the market prices that are available they may not be searching the entire market or indeed every potential supplier.

This means that the firm is being restricted in finding a suitable energy deal at great prices.

Looking for business gas suppliers

However, there is help at hand for those who are looking for business gas suppliers as well as electricity suppliers for their firm’s needs and that is to speak with experts who appreciate how the business energy market works and will have access to the latest deals and offers.

It’s also important that when using brokers like this that they appreciate the firm’s current and potential future needs as well.

Also, it’s important that firms do not jump onto the first cheap business gas and electricity deal they find since there may be hidden costs and charges which will have an impact and make the deal unattractive.
