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 Undertake a Business Electricity Comparison Exercise


One effective way of reducing overheads is to undertake a business electricity comparison exercise between suppliers and switch to the cheapest provider.

But how does a busy business owner go about doing this effectively?

The short answer is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who can access the entire marketplace and with a few details and a few minutes find a new electricity provider.

It’s also possible to speak with electricity suppliers directly, give them the same details and they will then give you a quote – depending on the size of your business and energy needs, the industry you work in and also your location.

However, comparing the offers between providers is not straightforward so you may find it easier to use a comparison website.

A business gas comparison exercise

As a busy business owner, you will find there are sites to enable a business gas comparison exercise to take place as well as searching for new electricity suppliers.

There’s no doubt that the sites provide a quick way of finding out what the potential market offer will be for your business needs.

However, the site may not search all of the potential suppliers so there could be better and cheaper deals available that will go unnoticed.

That’s not the case when you use the D-Energi team who will strive to find the best deal that meets your needs and also find a supplier to offer other valuable add-ons, such as a business energy consultancy that will help your firm reduce the amount of energy it uses to help deliver impressive long-term savings.

Undertake a business energy comparison exercise

All firms and organisations should undertake a business energy comparison exercise every year to ensure that they are in control of their overheads and that these costs will not run out of control, particularly in a cold winter when the gas bill may rocket in value.

For most firms, their energy bills are one of their biggest outgoings so it makes sense to check every year and this may be a rewarding exercise if you access a great deal and reduce your energy costs substantially.

But you won’t be able to do that unless you begin the search and the best time is when your current supplier gets in touch with your next year’s deal.

Also, if you haven’t switched for several years then you may have been moved to a deemed contract, which is more expensive but you won’t have to pay penalty fees to leave this contract.

For more help and advice about how you can undertake a business electricity comparison exercise to reduce costs, then it’s time to contact the D-Energi team.
