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 Review Business Energy Prices Per kWh


Firstly, when you want to review business energy prices per kWh, you need to appreciate that these costs are made up of unit rates.

The unit rate is what you will pay for the actual unit of energy for the gas or electricity consumed.

And there’s also a standing charge to pay, which is an amount that goes towards paying for the supplying of electricity and gas to your firm’s premises.

It’s important to highlight at this point that when you review prices that you calculate what the potential new tariff will cost over 12 months since the standing charge can be much higher with a new provider and eradicate any savings.

Understand business electricity rates per kWh

The next issue is to understand business electricity rates per kWh because this can be a complicated process, particularly since you will have to source separate quotes for your electricity and gas supply.

This then makes it more difficult to calculate the best value deal for your firm and understanding the price per kWh can make it easier to carry out this comparison.

By doing so, you will ensure that you will be moving to the correct tariff for meeting your firm’s current and future needs.

Essentially, the larger the demand from business, the cheaper the unit price per kWh will be.

Obviously, it’s this price that will vary between business energy providers and they will have criteria for putting a deal together.

Compare energy prices

This means that when you need to compare energy prices, you should appreciate that a potential provider is looking at:

  • How much gas or electricity your firm consumes every year
  • Your geographic location and the sector you work in
  • Whether you have plans to expand or even move premises during the contract’s duration
  • The size of your business and how many employees you have also had an impact on the deal.

You should also be aware that some energy suppliers may decline to offer a quote because your firm’s demand may be too low or they do not supply to your geographic location.

While there’s a lot to consider when it comes to reviewing business energy prices per kWh there is an easy way of doing this and sourcing a cheaper deal – and that is to contact D-Energi today.
