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 Lower Half Hourly Electricity Prices


Larger users of energy will have special meters installed but it is possible to pay lower half hourly electricity prices and save substantial amounts on overheads.

The best way of doing this is to speak with the friendly team at D-Energi who will explain how this is possible.

For those who may not be aware, very large users of electricity have half hourly meters installed which record the actual electricity used and sends this information to the supplier every 30 minutes, which is why they called half hourly meters.

One of the big attractions for HH meters is that they remove the need for estimated bills and firms will only pay for the energy they have used.

Find cheaper half hourly electricity suppliers

However, there is another big benefit for these meters and it is when they can be used to find cheaper half hourly electricity suppliers.

That’s because the data that is recorded is also available to the firm and a potential supplier so they can work out whether a cheaper tariff will suit their needs better and help them save money.

Again, the D-Energi team can help and it’s possible to use software to find whether even more money can be saved by switching periods of peak use to cheaper periods. For example, switching production to an off-peak rate.

In addition, an energy consultant can also use the data to ensure that your supplier has put you on the correct tariff and, if not, help you take steps to recoup any money that may be owed.

Cheaper half hourly electricity tariffs

The search for cheaper half hourly electricity tariffs and deals is slightly more complicated than it is for smaller firms who can use online comparison sites for this purpose.

The larger business will also need to put in more legwork in sourcing a new energy supply but it’s still worth the time and effort because the potential savings can be huge.

This is also the point to appreciate that the expertise of the D-Energi team will help explain what the new deals and tariffs actually mean and whether they will save your business any money because it’s also likely that you’ll need to negotiate directly with a supplier for a bespoke deal.

This isn’t as intimidating as some firms may believe but having someone who knows how this market operates and what the terminology means could be of huge benefit.
