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.

Finding the Most Suitable and Cheapest Gas Tariff


If your current business gas supplier has been in touch to tell you what your next year’s rates will be, then this is a great time to find the most suitable and cheapest gas tariff for your needs.

It may mean searching the entire market to find a new supplier and then switching to them but this is a seamless process and there is no loss of gas supply when you do so.

One of the big attractions for switching to a cheaper gas tariff is that there are big savings to enjoy and the savings will depend on the size of your business.

However, even a one-man band could save hundreds of pounds every year while larger concerns could save thousands of pounds by switching to a new provider.

Compare business gas prices between potential suppliers

A big part of this is to compare business gas prices between potential suppliers but you’ll need to ensure that you search the whole of the market to find a deal that suits you.

One of the downsides for some online comparison sites is they don’t search all of the potential suppliers and you’ll still need to speak with a recommended supplier directly because they must offer a bespoke deal.

It’s also important that you understand the difference between standing charges and unit rates which is the cost of supplying energy and the costs you pay for maintaining the network for gas to be supplied.

These details will be on your gas bills and they will help you understand what a potential supplier is offering; while a new provider may offer a cheaper unit rate they may charge more for their standing charge.

This means there are no savings to be made, so it’s something to be aware of.

Search for the cheapest gas tariff

In this search for the cheapest gas tariff there are other issues to consider as well since a new provider may offer a consultancy service to help you reduce the amount of gas you use so they can help deliver even greater savings.

It also helps to speak with the D-Energi team who understand how the business gas supply market works and will, in a few minutes, be able to source a gas tariff that will best meet your business needs.

It’s also worth noting that many firms and organisations may be reluctant to deal with a gas supplier they may never have heard of previously – that’s to be expected but they should also be wary if they only check with the ‘Big Six’ gas suppliers as their offers may be similar.
