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.

Pay Less for Your Business Energy


Perhaps the most effective way to pay less for your business energy needs is to use a team of experts who understand how the market works and can find a deal that best meets your needs.

This means speaking with the D-Energi team who will be able to search every provider to find a bespoke deal that will save money on your overheads.

In addition, they can take care of the switchover process and plan ahead so that when it comes to renewing your business energy contract, they will already have done the legwork and found a better or improved deal.

By using the team of experts, a busy business owner will remove the need to contact energy providers directly and also from using comparison sites that may not search the entire market or even have the best deals.

Switching business energy supplier

Some business owners may be wary about switching their business energy supplier but in many instances, it’s the easiest way to save money.

However, it’s not like switching energy providers for our homes and you can only leave when your contract is due for renewal and if you want to leave earlier then there may be a cost involved.

To switch energy suppliers, you simply issue a notification of termination between 28 days and three months before the contract ends.

As a business, there’s no loss of supply and you simply receive your energy bill from a different provider.

However, it also needs to be noted that there’s no cooling off period when you switch business energy providers, so once you agree to a new deal then you are essentially signing up for one year.

Search for cheaper business energy prices

It’s this search for cheaper business energy prices that can be a time consuming endeavour and a confusing one too.

One of the big issues for a busy business owner is that there are lots of suppliers with what appear to be great deals that will save you money.

However, you need to look at the fine detail, particularly the unit charge for the energy used and the standing charge, which is a fee levied for using the National Grid to deliver energy to your business premises. This fee is not fixed and can vary hugely.

Also, business energy prices do fluctuate so if a potential new provider offers a great deal and you spend a few days contemplating whether it’s the right one for you, then you may find that the prices may have changed when you agree to sign up.

For more information, contact the team of experts at D-Energi who will help you and your business pay less for your business energy needs and take care of the switchover process.
