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 Your Business Energy Quote the Cheapest?


While all firms and organization are encouraged to search the marketplace every year to find a cheaper business energy quote to meet their needs, how do you know that it is the cheapest?

The answer is that unless you’ve searched the entire market offering then you probably don’t know, and there may be better and cheaper deals available that will not come to your attention.

One reason for this is that your firm may decide to use an online comparison site to compare business energy quotes between providers, but the site itself may restrict its search to a select few suppliers.

This will mean that there may be other cheaper and better offers available that you will not get to hear about and you’ll still need to speak to the recommended supplier so you can access a tailor-made quote for your business.

Sourcing a cheaper business electricity quote

This issue of sourcing a cheaper business electricity quote means a firm will need to take the time to understand what their needs are and find a supplier to meet them.

While businesses could approach electricity suppliers directly, this can be a time-consuming process and many of the quotes may be similar, so the firm may be put off from switching because they may believe it is too much hassle doing so for very little financial gain.

This would be a mistake because there are big savings to be made and with around 40% of firms never bothering to switch energy providers previously, according to a government survey, means there is a huge potential for many firms to save lots of money on their overheads.

That will almost certainly be the case if they have remained with the same energy supplier for several years without bothering to switch – and their supplier may have moved them across to a ‘deemed’ contract automatically and these tend to be much more expensive than the contracts offered to a new customer.

Finding a cheap business gas quote

This issue over sourcing a new electricity provider also extends to finding a cheap business gas quote to meet your everyday needs.

Both electricity and gas markets work in a similar fashion and once you’ve found a new provider, the switchover process will be seamless and there’s no loss of energy supply.

But there is an easier way of searching the entire market and that is to speak with experts at D-Energi who have access to the latest deals and offers including from providers a firm may never have heard of previously. These suppliers may also have other offerings such as an energy consultancy.

A consultancy is to be recommended because this will see an energy expert analysing how your firm is using its gas and electricity and then introducing measures for you to use less and boost your savings over the long term by even more.

For more help and information about whether you have accessed the cheapest business energy quote for your needs, then it’s time to speak with the D-Energi team to see whether they can beat it.
