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.

Our Advice When Switching Business Energy Suppliers


All firms and organisations should take time every year to find the best energy prices, so this article will help when switching business energy suppliers.

Among the reasons for a firm to switch will be to enjoy cheaper rates or better levels of customer service.

However, this is also an issue that lots of firms tend to neglect so they remain with a provider through inactivity.

The downside for this failure to act when a supplier gets in touch with details of your next contract is that they have probably been moved across to a deemed rates contract, which tends to cost more.

Switching business electricity suppliers

When it comes to switching business electricity suppliers, there’s more to the process than most firms will appreciate.

For example, you may find a deal with great prices but this may entail signing up for a long-term contract which may have various fees that you were not expecting.

It’s for this reason that you should review the contract being offered by an energy provider to ensure it meets your needs and you understand the details.

Our advice is important for those firms who are tempted to switch to suppliers offering very low prices and you should hesitate before signing a deal of more than two or three years, and some suppliers will offer five-year contract.

Switch business gas suppliers

The advice to be cautious also extends when you want to switch business gas suppliers and while these bills tend to be lower, it’s still worth shopping around.

In the hunt for a new energy provider, you should ask lots of questions and if there’s terminology being used that you don’t understand then ask for clarification. If the supplier is still not making their contract clear then it’s probably an opportunity to look elsewhere.

You also need to make clear what the unit charge and standing charges will be, whether there are cancellation fees and how often you will be billed.

Also, ask the provider about any hidden up-front fees which is also crucial.

It’s important that firms do not pay more than is necessary and you may be surprised that when you begin shopping around various energy providers how their rates vary and what potential savings can be made.

However, you may need help in comparing these offers which will be a bespoke offering from those who understand the market and the contracts being offered.
