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.

Frequently Asked Questions about Business Energy Suppliers


Research by the Federation of Small Businesses has revealed that 70% of businesses have experienced difficulty when it comes to comparing energy suppliers, with 43% saying they have never switched suppliers. These are incredible numbers when you think about how the cheapest business electricity prices could help you save money as a business.

A lack of understanding about different energy suppliers, wanting to remain loyal to existing suppliers, and a concern about the effort and time it may involve to switch business energy suppliers are all things that stand in the way of businesses potentially making the switch to the cheapest business electricity supplier.

However, switching business energy suppliers is not the long and complicated task that you might think it is, and the savings you could achieve will make any slight effort on your part well worth it.

Here are some FAQ’s relating to switching business energy suppliers.

#1 How do I find out who my existing supplier is?

You can find out who supplies your current business gas and electricity, by looking at your most recent utility bill – the contact details of your current supplier will be printed on it.

If you have just moved to new premises or you can’t find your latest bill, you can contact the Meter Point Administration service to ask for their details.

#2 What is a deemed contract?

If you have recently moved into new premises then a deemed contract will probably be in place for your electricity, gas, or maybe even both if you have not agreed on a contract with your current supplier. If your existing contract has come to an end but you are continuing to consumer electricity then a deemed contract probably exists. The cost of deemed contracts tends to be about 80% more expensive than a negotiated contract – so you can see why they are not good news for many businesses.

#3 What is a rolling contract?

A rolling contract is when your business gas or electricity supplier rolls you over into a new contract automatically – which may be the case if you fail to tell your supplier of your intention to end a contract before the end of your notice period.

#4 Do I need to tell my existing business energy supplier that I am leaving them?


If you decide to leave your existing energy supplier and switch to another one, then you must inform your existing supplier by either

  • Telling them directly
  • Asking your comparison company (D-ENERGi) to provide them with a Letter of Authority (LoA)


#5 What is a Letter of Authority (LoA)

A Letter of Authority is a recognised legal document that allows us to liaise with energy suppliers on your behalf, with your permission.

It basically allows us to call time on your existing tariff and set you up on a cheaper and more competitive one.
