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.

Half Hourly Electricity Prices Explained


If your business is a large consumer of electricity and you need half hourly electricity prices explained, then this article will help.

Firstly, you’ll need to appreciate that because your firm is a large consumer that you will have a special half hourly electricity meter installed.

These meters will send accurate consumption data to the supplier every 30 minutes, which is why they are called half hourly electricity meters.

It’s this data that ensures you receive accurate bills and it is also an opportunity for another supplier to analyse this information and then offer you a bespoke deal, hopefully at much lower rates.

Negotiate directly with half hourly electricity suppliers

However, since large consumers can access much lower prices, you’ll need to negotiate directly with half hourly electricity suppliers to get a deal.

Not every firm will have the expertise or time to do this, but there are experts who will be to explain any jargon and help with negotiations.

This means contacting the friendly team at D-Energi who can find a better half hourly deal on your behalf and then negotiate with the supplier for the switchover process to begin.

And since you are a large consumer of electricity, you may be worried that there may be a loss of supply when you do switch but this will not happen and you’ll simply receive a bill from your new supplier.

A new half hourly electricity deal

The big attraction when switching to a new half hourly electricity deal is that this offering is tailored to your firm’s specific needs and your budget.

Like small and medium-sized firms, your business can agree to fixed half hourly meter charges so you know what your budgeting requirements will be.

Alternatively, you could take a risk by opting for a variable rate which means your meter rate will change throughout your contract’s duration and if prices fall, then you’ll make big savings.

Obviously, you could contact the potential half-hour electricity supplier directly but regulator Ofgem believes that the contracts can be complex and you’ll need experienced or dedicated people to undertake this task for you.

The D-Energi team also offers help with the administration of the contract and paperwork so the switchover is seamless which leaves you to focus on your day-to-day business activities.
