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 to Access Cheap Half Hourly Electricity Tariffs


If you wanted to know more about how to access cheap half hourly electricity tariffs, then you need to speak with the experts.

That’s because sourcing prices for commercial half hourly electricity will need specialist knowledge of how the energy sector operates.

Also, the supplier procurement process needs to be managed properly because it is rather different than the process that a small- or medium-sized business will undertake for finding a new and cheaper electricity provider.

However, the big difference is that larger consumers of electricity will have half hourly meters installed, so there’s no need to estimate how much energy you will potentially use over the course of a half hourly supply contract.

A half hourly electricity quote for meeting your needs

Instead, these meters are providing data that is an ideal source of information for a new provider to put together their half hourly electricity quote for meeting your needs.

That’s because the data is recorded every 30 minutes and then sent to the supplier, so they can send accurate bills.

This information is also available to you as a business so you can look at the peak periods of demand to analyse ways of reducing consumption and also for a potential supplier to use.

All firms, regardless of the industry they work in, who have a peak demand of more than 100 kW will have these mandatory meters installed.

It’s always worth checking if you are moving premises that a half hourly meter has already been installed as this will make the transition easier. Some firms with a slightly lower peak demand can also ask for these meters to be installed as they give access to cheaper energy prices.

Installing HH meters for business

One of the benefits that the government and Ofgem put forward for installing HH meters for business is that they will help firms reduce their electricity bills more easily.

With so much detailed data and a competitive marketplace, it’s worth the time and effort for businesses to use the expertise of the D-Energi team to find a new electricity provider.

Not only can the experienced team help find a new HH supplier, but they can also check that the contract is suitable and will meet your current and future needs.

There’s a lot to consider during a half hourly electricity procurement process and it’s important that you do this thoroughly to deliver the expected savings.
