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.

Helpful Advice to Switch Commercial Energy Providers


If you are looking for cheaper electricity and gas prices for your business then this article will offer helpful advice for you to switch commercial energy providers and enjoy lower bills as a result.

Firstly, you need details of your business and these can be found on your most recent bill. The bill will also have your meter number which tells a potential supplier of your exact location.

It’s important to appreciate that there is no set rate for commercial energy and a lot depends on your location, the industry you work in and your peak periods of demand to dictate what prices you will be paying.

It’s also important to appreciate that you will probably find a much cheaper energy supplier because the marketplace is competitive for new business and you should shop around to find a range of quotes from various providers.

Or you could simply contact the D-Energi team to take care of this process and undertake the switchover on your behalf.

Search for cheaper commercial energy prices

There is no doubt that running a business takes dedication and time and the search for cheaper business energy prices may appear to be a distraction but the savings will make this a financially rewarding exercise.

To find these cheaper prices you could contact energy suppliers directly and negotiate with them once your current provider contacts you with details of what your next year’s tariff will be.

If you are short of time then this can be a time-consuming process but you could also use a comparison website though these may not be searching the entire marketplace and you’ll still need to contact the recommended supplier directly and give them your details.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that a recent government survey highlighted that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching their provider so they have, more than likely, been rolled over onto a deemed contract that tends to be more costly.

Finding a cheap commercial energy quote

It’s this task of finding a cheap business energy quote that may appear to be a daunting prospect for some firms and you should not restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ providers and also incorporate some of the newer, smaller electricity suppliers who are now available.

While the commercial energy supply market has been deregulated in the UK, there is still a watchdog in the shape Ofgem to monitor how the market operates and ensure that the supplier delivers on their promises.

There may also be some hesitation from a business owner worried that during the switchover they may lose their energy supply to their premises but this will not happen.

If you would like to know more about how you can switch commercial energy providers and save a substantial amount of money on your overheads, then you need to speak with the experts at D-Energi.
