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.

How do half-hourly electricity meters work for businesses?


Half-hourly electricity meters are most often used by larger businesses and corporations, particularly by those who use a large amount of energy. 

They are designed to provide more accurate bills helping to reduce the risk of businesses spending too much on energy without realising. 

What is a half-hourly electricity meter 

Using automatic meter reading technology a half-hourly electricity meter will provide automatic readings every half hour. As this is done automatically and is reported to your electricity supplier using a mobile signal or phone line, your bills no longer need to be estimated. Meaning, that as a business you will not have to take your own meter readings, nor will you experience over-estimated bills that require overspending on your electricity. 

In fact, not only are half-hourly meters preferred by UK businesses, they are typically installed as a mandatory requirement for UK businesses with peak loads of more than 100,000 kWh of electricity per year. 

The advantages of a half-hourly electricity meter 

As mentioned above, there are plenty of benefits that come with opting for half-hourly electricity meters. For businesses looking to save on their energy bills, this is the preferred option. 

Not only do these meters ensure you do not overspend and you avoid estimated energy bills, but they also help you to better understand your energy consumption. Allowing you to review your company’s energy usage and reduce this where possible. For larger companies looking to improve their carbon footprint, half-hourly meter readings will allow you to take the first steps in reducing your carbon emissions. Setting goals and seeing a visible reduction in the amount of energy you use will be easy with the data provided by a half-hourly meter. 

Other advantages of using a half-hourly meter for your business energy include, being able to predict your usage and experiencing more tailored tariffs from your energy supplier.
