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.

Great Advice to Save On Business Electricity Costs


As a busy business owner who is looking for great advice on how you can save on business electricity costs, then it’s time to speak with the experts who can deliver the savings.

This will mean spending a few minutes speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi who have years of experience in helping firms just like yours reduce their energy overheads.

The big difference between their offering, and the likes of a business energy comparison website, for example, is that they are able to search the entire market for you to ensure that the best deal possible is the one that you will sign up to.

That isn’t quite the case should you use restrict your search for a new provider to a comparison website since these may only be searching a handful of potential suppliers, so you should check beforehand how many will be approached with your details.

Effectively compare business electricity per kWh

Once you begin this process, you need to effectively compare business electricity per kWh (kilowatt hour), though it’s worth highlighting that sourcing a cheaper unit rate, that is the amount paid for the energy you consume, is not the only cheap rate you need.

Essentially, there are two costs that you need to appreciate when switching to a new provider and they are:

  • The unit rate per kWh can be cheaper with a new supplier
  • The standing charge is also an amount levied but this varies hugely between suppliers and it also needs to be lower than you are currently paying.

The aim is to have a lower unit charge and potentially a cheaper standing charge, so you enjoy real savings because simply choosing a tariff with a lower unit rate without realising that the standing charge is higher may not actually deliver any savings for your business.

Compare business energy per kWh

This process to compare business energy per kWh is easy when the friendly team at D-Energi do this for you.

It’s also more complicated when you use a comparison site because you have to negotiate with that recommended provider and look closely at the deal that is being offered.

Alternatively, you could contact providers directly but comparing their deals on a like-for-like basis can be confusing and since they are a bespoke offering.

For most busy business owners, this process to save money on business electricity can be a distraction but you can achieve realistic savings by spending a few minutes speaking with D-Energi so call them today to find out what they can do for you.
