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.

Is A Business Energy Switch For You?


For most business owners, their priorities will be to maintain the quality of their service and products while keeping running costs low, which makes a business energy switch an attractive proposition.

While they may be very busy with their day-to-day activities, sourcing a new energy provider is straightforward and can be done very quickly.

But why go to the bother? The main reason is that you will reduce your annual energy bill and, depending on the size of your business, you could save thousands of pounds every year.

That is an immediate boost to the bottom line and you will be sourcing cheaper energy providers for the coming year, or perhaps for two or more years for even cheaper prices.

Having smart meters installed when you switch energy providers

There’s also a lot to recommend having smart meters installed when you switch energy providers as this will help you monitor your daily use of energy and what your potential bills might be. The meters send information about your energy use to the supplier so there are no more estimated bills.

However, if you already have a smart meter installed it is probably wise mentioning this to see whether it will work with the new supplier because one national newspaper has reported that around half of smart meters stopped working when a firm switched energy suppliers.

Having energy meters installed also means that a business and its employees can help reduce their use of energy to boost their environmental credentials as well as reducing their bills even further.

This issue over smart meters is one that many firms may be confused about and the friendly team at D-Energi will be able to explain and of the benefits that come when they are installed.

Search for a new energy solution provider

When you begin the search for a new energy solution provider, it’s mainly to reduce overheads and enjoy cheaper bills but it’s also an opportunity to help other firms as well.

Essentially, when you scour the market to find a cheaper energy provider you are helping to increase competition in the market which will benefit all firms when they look for a new energy solution.

When it comes to undertaking an energy switch, you could reduce bills with lower rates and the use of a smart meter and you could also access an energy consultancy to help.

A consultant will look at how and when you are using energy and make recommendations to reduce less of it so your savings could be even greater.

If you would like more help and advice about whether a business energy switch is for you and your business, then it’s time to contact the experts at D-Energi who will be able to explain more.
