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 Carry Out A Business Energy Comparison


If you would like to know more about how you can carry out a business energy comparison to find a cheaper deal, then this article will help.

Firstly, there’s no need to be paying more than is necessary for your energy supply as the process to find a better and cheaper energy supplier for meeting your business needs is straightforward.

There is a range of options when you want to carry out a business energy comparison exercise between suppliers and you should not restrict the search to the ‘big six’ suppliers who are familiar names.

Often smaller suppliers who will offer substantial savings when you shop around for a new business energy deal.

Undertake a business electricity comparison exercise

For example, when you need to undertake a business electricity comparison exercise, then the options will be to:

  • Contact potential suppliers directly and ask how much they will charge for meeting your business needs. Remember, you’ll need to appreciate that your geographic location and how many employees you have are among the details that will be crucial in the prices being offered.
  • You could use a business energy comparison website that will search a number of suppliers but probably not the entire market. There may be other cheaper suppliers available.

A third way is to speak with the D-Energi team who can search the entire marketplace on your behalf to find a better and cheaper deal than you currently enjoy.

Business gas comparison exercise

As with an electricity comparison, the same process can be replicated for a business gas comparison exercise.

Again, the physical location of your premises, the number of employees and potential expansion plans will all have an impact on the prices being quoted.

In addition, you may be offered the opportunity for signing up for a longer business gas contract which may deliver lower prices and for some firms this will be a suitable choice and may help with cash flow planning.

Also, some suppliers may offer the chance of having an energy consultancy to help you reduce consumption levels, so your savings will be even greater. Some firms may save up to 30% and you will also be enhancing your environmental credentials by using less energy.

It’s always good to have independent advice to find out how you can find cheaper and better business energy deals with a business energy comparison and this is where the D-Energi team can help.
