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.

Save EVERY Time You Compare Energy Prices


Even though it can be a confusing process, your business can save every time you compare energy prices between suppliers.

There’s the potential to substantially reduce overheads and every business should carry out this exercise every year.

And since most businesses will be using more energy than the average home, it’s important to have control over how much you are being charged and to be on the correct business energy tariff that will meet your needs.

Essentially, when comparing business energy rates between suppliers, there will be two types of contracts being offered.

Appreciate what business energy prices per kWh

The contracts will either be a flexible rate or a fixed tariff so it may pay to appreciate what business energy prices per kWh are.

That’s because both types of these tariffs will offer a unit cost and both tariffs will have disadvantages and advantages.

It’s important that you compare thoroughly all commercial energy tariffs from suppliers before making a decision to switch and the issue of business energy prices per kilowatt hour will play an important role in this process.

But, like most things in life, you need to be aware of standing charges because the supplier may offer a low price per kilowatt hour but have a hefty standing charge instead.

Indeed, what appears to be a great deal because of a low unit price may be no such thing once you calculate the real costs including the standing charge – which helps pay for the network to supply energy to your premises.

Business electricity rates per kWh

Most firms and organisations will sign up for a fixed rate contract where the business electricity rates per kWh are agreed for the next year.

For cheaper rates, it is possible to sign up for a longer term business energy contract which may prove useful to some firms because it will help with cash flow and your firm will know what the energy bills are going to be.

The alternative is to sign up to a flexible rate contract, some suppliers call them variable rate contracts, and these are linked in market activity.

Essentially, the cost of your energy may fall or increase in the duration of your contract so in a severe winter, for example, you may see a variable business energy tariff being increased.

The best way to save when you compare energy prices is to contact the team at D-Energi who have the expertise to search the entire marketplace and find a tariff that will not only meet your needs but be much cheaper as well.
