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 Find A Business Gas Supplier Fast


If your supply contract is up for renewal in the near future and you need to find a new business gas supplier fast, then this article is for you.

Firstly, there’s no need to panic since the market is a competitive one, but it’s crucial that you search all potential suppliers and see which one is offering the best business gas prices per kilowatt hour for meeting your firm’s needs.

That might not be the case should you decide to use a business gas comparison website which may only have a restricted number of suppliers to offer a quote and there could be better and cheaper deals available that you will be unaware of.

However, these business gas comparison sites do offer a quick way of finding out what the market rate is for your firm’s needs and will give an indication of how much you can save by switching to a new business gas provider.

Understanding small business gas rates

When it comes to understanding small business gas rates, the experts emergencyhomesolutionsoc.com at D-Energi can help explain why the quotes vary so much – and that’s usually down to the supplier having their own criteria, which will include:

  • The location of your firm
  • The industry that you work in
  • Your annual consumption levels
  • How many people you employ.


There are other issues too, including whether you have plans to expand which will mean increasing your business gas demands over the course of the contract.

All of this makes sense and you should not be surprised if a potential gas supplier declines to quote and you should never really compare the prices being offered for your needs with those being offered to a business next door since they may have different criteria for their bespoke deal.

Business gas price per kilowatt hour

We mentioned that the lowering of the business gas price per kilowatt hour is an important aspect but there’s some detail that you will need to appreciate. This includes:

  • While the business price per unit is for the actual gas consumed and you should look for a lower amount, it’s not the only important price
  • That’s because you need to take into account the standing charge, which pays for gas to be delivered to your premises and since this varies, you need to ensure that this is either lower or the same and not more because this will remove any savings that your firm could potentially make.


If you are simply too busy as a business owner with the day-to-day tasks of running your firm, then it’s helpful there is a friendly team of experts available to discuss your needs, search the market of all competitors and then explain why one particular deal is better than another.
