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.

Good Reasons for a Firm to Switch Energy Suppliers


There are several good reasons for a firm to switch energy suppliers but the main one is also the best one: to save money.

Indeed, the process of looking at the entire energy supply market is something every firm and organisation should carry out every year when their current energy contract falls due.

By doing this they will appreciate that they are on a good deal and, if not, they can easily switch.

The main purpose of spending time looking into the energy supply market is to lower overheads and boost profitability.

Main aim for any energy switch

This is the main aim for any energy switch a firm undertakes and should be good business practice for all firms and organisations.

For many firms, their energy bills will be a major part of their outgoings and for some could be a big financial burden. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Unfortunately, lots of firms are either unwilling or unable to carry out the search on a regular basis and then spend the time to switch suppliers.

Indeed, the energy regulator Ofgem says that 40% of all firms in the UK haven’t switched energy suppliers in the last five years.

They want more firms to switch on a regular basis which will encourage more suppliers into the market and with more suppliers means competition is increased and we all get to enjoy lower energy prices for our business.

By not switching the firm is probably paying more

And let’s not forget that by not switching, the firm is probably paying more than they need to for their energy which is money that could be better used for other purposes within the organisation.

The Competition and Markets Authority has calculated that small and medium enterprises have probably overpaid by nearly £300 million over the last few years by not shopping around.

That’s an astonishing amount of money being spent by small firms who could instead use it for better purposes.

It’s important to remember, however, that firms cannot switch energy supplier unless their contract is due for renewal but it doesn’t hurt to do homework beforehand and understand how the market works.

Firms could visit comparison websites on a regular basis to see what the market rates are which will also highlight the direction of travel for gas and electricity prices; many industry experts are predicting that prices will rise in the short-term.
