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.

Make Sure Your Business Energy Comparison Works


There are several reasons why you should make sure your business energy comparison exercise works for you, but the main reason is to save money.

There’s no doubt that for a busy business owner, undertaking a business energy comparison can appear to be a daunting task.

In addition, switching to a new energy plan can also be confusing.

Firstly, you’ll need to gather various business energy prices and decipher the contracts that are being offered.

The best way to demystify this process and access expert advice is to contact the friendly team at D-Energi who can explain clearly how the system works and how you can access a better deal.

Undertake a business electricity comparison exercise

All firms should undertake a business electricity comparison exercise every year when their current provider gets in touch with details of their forthcoming year’s contract rates.

This is the ideal opportunity to see what other providers will offer you as a new customer and you need your energy contract to hand to negotiate.

It’s this contract that will tell you what your current business energy rates are but you also need to understand how to compare the various business energy prices for electricity and gas per kWh (kilowatt hour).

If you don’t have your contract, then the information should be on a recent energy bill.

Undertake a business gas comparison

Along with sourcing a new electricity provider, a business owner should also look to undertake a business gas comparison when this contract falls due as well.

While most firms will be spending less on their gas overheads, this is still a potentially valuable exercise to undertake.

There are several pieces of information to carry out the comparison and they are the unit rates and standing charge you are paying, your meter number, the date your contract ends and how much energy you consume every year.

A new provider will use this information to see whether their deal is better or not and a business owner can also use an online comparison site for this purpose, but the site may not search all potential suppliers.

The best way for a busy business owner to be reassured that their business energy comparison exercise works for them is to speak with the team at D-Energi to see what deals they can source and the team can also take care of the switchover process.
