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 On Your Half Hourly Electricity Prices


If your firm or organisation has half hourly electricity meters installed then it is possible that you can save with cheaper half hourly electricity prices.

Not every firm will have these meters installed but large users of electricity will and they offer an automated process of monitoring energy use and accurate billing.

That’s because your firm’s energy use is recorded every 30 minutes, hence the term half hourly meters, with the data being sent to your provider.

In addition to accurate bills, this data can be used by a potential new provider to offer a tariff and deal that will meet your needs and be cheaper.

Half hourly electricity suppliers

These meters mean that half hourly electricity suppliers will benefit from identifying the peak periods of electricity use in your business.

Not only will this help them offer a bespoke deal but also help your business become more energy-efficient because they may offer help in reducing your overall energy usage with a consultancy

This type of consultancy is growing in popularity and will offer real savings to help reduce your bills even further. The consultant may also look at reducing your gas and water use too.

In addition, the location of your business, the type of industry you are in and the number of employees will also have an impact on the rates being offered.

Attraction for half hourly electricity deals

The big attraction for half hourly electricity deals is that the provider will be able to use the information for delivering better prices than a firm who does not have half hourly meters fitted.

If your firm has moved into a new building or premises, then you need to check whether a half hourly meter has been installed and the designation is on the front of the meter which will have the letter ‘S’ followed with 00 in the top left-hand corner.

There are various ways of finding half hourly electricity providers and you could contact suppliers directly or use an online comparison site to find what the average market rate for your business needs will be.

However, the downside to a comparison site is that it may not be searching the entire marketplace, so there may be better deals and providers available that you will miss out on.

For more help and information about how you and your business can save on your half hourly electricity prices, then it’s time to contact the team at D-Energi.
