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 Half Hourly Electricity Suppliers


If your business has half hourly meters installed then this article will help you find cheaper half hourly electricity suppliers.

By doing so you should be able to reduce your firm’s electricity bill.

For those firms who may not be aware, if your business is a high consumer of electricity then your usage levels are probably being monitored by a special half hourly meter.

This means that your electricity usage is being sent to your supplier every 30 minutes without you needing to submit meter readings.

Enjoy half hour electricity prices

One of the benefits of these meters is to enjoy half hour electricity prices that should be cheaper because your supplier has a clear indication of how much electricity you are using and when you are using it.

Essentially, having your usage submitted every half-hour means your bills will be more accurate and there’s less chance of being charged incorrectly.

The data that is submitted can also be analysed by you and your firm to see where potential savings can be made, for example, switching usage to a cheaper off-peak tariff.

While there is software available to do this, it may pay to contact experts such as D-Energi who can analyse the figures to see whether you are paying too much for your electricity needs and where potential savings can be made.

Some firms will need to be on half hourly electricity meters

However, some firms will need to be on half hourly electricity meters because they have a high peak demand while those who use less could choose to have an HH meter installed because of the benefits of monitoring their energy usage.

If you move premises and you are high electricity user, then you need to ensure that there is a half hourly meter installed by checking the top corner of it to see if there is a ‘00’ listed on the front of the meter plate. If you are a high-level user and you don’t have a relevant meter installed then you need to arrange to have one.

So, what are the benefits of having a half hour electricity meter installed? Along with having more accurate billing data, higher electricity users will be able to access cheaper electricity prices from potential suppliers.

There are other issues on how much a supplier will charge your business for electricity including where it is located and the type of tariff you need.
