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 the Cheapest Business Gas Suppliers UK


If you want to find the cheapest business gas suppliers UK then you need to shop around to find the best deals or speak with experts who understand the market.

This last point means speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who have access to the entire market and can find the best deal and tariff that will meet your needs.

There are a number of issues that all business owners will need to consider when searching for a new business gas supplier and that’s the location they are in, the industry they work in and how many people they employ. All of these will have an impact on the deal being offered.

There are also different types of tariff to bear in mind – these are flexible and fixed and also the length of time you want a contract to run for. If you opt for a gas contract of two or three years, you may be offered even lower rates.

Searching for the cheapest business gas prices

When searching for the cheapest business gas prices, you could opt to contact gas suppliers directly but you may find that this becomes a time-consuming and often confusing process because you’ll need to effectively compare the offerings between them.

This is easier said than done because the deals will have differing unit costs plus a standing charge. So while one supplier may offer a very low cost per unit, there may not be a real saving because their standing charge is much higher to compensate for this offer.

You could also use one of the growing numbers of business gas comparison sites to see what providers are offering and these are an effective way of finding out what the market rate is for a firm of your size and needs.

However, the downside to using a comparison site is they may not be searching the entire marketplace so there will probably be other deals and offers that will better meet your needs and be cheaper as well. Without searching the marketplace, you will never know.

Cheaper business electricity prices

This issue over finding cheaper gas prices also extends to those who want cheaper business electricity prices as well.

The process is very similar, so you could contact electricity providers directly or use a comparison site.

If you decide to contact providers directly, then you should be wary about restricting your search to just the ‘Big Six’ energy providers because you may find that their offerings are very similar and it may be not worth your time and effort in switching because there are no savings to be had.

For those firms who want to find the cheapest business gas suppliers UK, and also the cheapest electricity providers, then it will pay to speak with the experts who understand how the market works at D-Energi.
