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 Swap to Cheaper Commercial Electricity Rates


It’s important that all firms and organisations are not paying more than they need to for their energy needs and they’re able to swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates if so.

Indeed, the sector’s watchdog Ofgem recommends firms compare energy deals and tariffs regularly to help ensure they are on the right deal for them.

This is something of an issue since a government survey revealed recently that around 40% of firms in the UK have never bothered switching their energy providers.

This means they’ve probably been moved onto more expensive deals automatically when they can find cheaper tariffs in just a few minutes.

A cheaper commercial electricity quote

Sourcing a cheaper commercial electricity quote can be done easily by either contacting electricity providers directly, giving them a few details and see what they have to offer for your business.

The firm can also use an online comparison site to search more easily for a cheaper energy provider.

However, the comparison site may not search the whole of the market so there may be better and cheaper deals available that the firm won’t get to hear about.

This comparison site process should reveal the cheaper tariffs though a lot depends on the firm’s location, how much energy they use and they could utilise the information to negotiate a better deal with their current provider.

However, it’s important that they do act when their current supplier contacts them with details of the following year’s energy contract prices because this is the prompt they need to switch energy providers.

Finding cheaper electric prices will reduce overheads

There’s no doubt that by finding cheaper electric prices will help reduce overheads and boost profitability and the process is not daunting.

Indeed, the switchover process is not only simple but it’s seamless so there’s no loss of electricity supply to the premises when this is undertaken.

It’s also possible for a firm with several premises to have just one supplier and one bill covering all of their outlets.

Firms could also find cheaper prices if they want to sign up for more than a year’s contract, which might be a good idea if you believe electric prices may rise over the short term.

If you would like to know more about how you can swap to cheaper commercial electricity rates and deal with experts with lots of experience in doing so, then it’s time to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi.
