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.

Find A Cheaper Business Electricity Supplier


Businesses and organisations could save money by paying less for their energy being used every day, which means that finding a cheaper business electricity supplier is key.

This also means that there will need to be a process in place to compare energy quotes effectively between providers to ensure that you get a better deal for your firm’s electricity supply.

There are a number of issues to consider when comparing business electricity bills and these may include the size of your business since some providers specialise in business sizes.

Also, if your firm is a large consumer of electricity and you have half hourly meters installed, then you will need help with the procurement process in dealing with this specialist part of the energy supply marketplace.

Business electricity rates

The business electricity rates being quoted will also vary depending on your geographic location, as some areas are more expensive than others.

Also, how many employees you have, whether you want to expand or move premises over the contract’s duration and the industry you work in also have an influence.

The new provider will need to know how much electricity you are using every year and should yours be a new business, then a provider can help estimate what your potential usage will be for that contract.

The supplier will also want to know whether you have peak periods of electricity demand, for example in the early hours of the morning or late at night, which may lead to cheaper rates.

There are also suppliers available who offer energy consultancies to help your business reduce its electricity consumption, which will not only reduce your bills even further but also boost your firm’s environmental credentials.

Business electricity contracts

There is a range of business electricity contracts available and they will be fixed, so you could sign up for up to five years or they could be flexible.

With a fixed contract you will know how much your electricity bills are likely to be because the unit rate will not increase.

It also means that the unit rate will not decrease, which will be an expensive option should prices fall over the contract’s duration.

The most important part of finding a cheaper electricity supplier is to compare the quotes from a range of providers, which is where the D-Energi experts can help because they can scour the entire market on your behalf to find the best deals and tariffs available and then help with the switchover process.
