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 When You Compare Business Energy Prices Per kWh


Most firms will be looking to cut their energy costs and they can do so when they compare business energy prices per kWh.

This is probably the most effective way to understand what a potential supplier will be charging and ensure that by switching energy providers there are genuine savings to be enjoyed.

That’s because a potential supplier may quote a lower price per kilowatt hour (kWh) but have a much higher standing charge which means that you may not be making any savings whatsoever.

However, it’s important that this exercise is carried out every year because small firms can make big savings; a lot depends on the size of your organisation and some firms will be able to reduce their bills by several thousands of pounds by simply switching providers.

Compare energy prices between suppliers

One of the big issues, when a firm wants to compare energy prices between suppliers, is that they will insist on offering a bespoke quote.

This makes it more difficult to compare the offerings and deliver real cost savings but it doesn’t mean that it’s impossible.

There are several ways of seeking and then comparing energy quotes and one of the best ways is to speak with D-Energi who can search the entire marketplace for a bespoke offering.

Alternatively, a small business can use an online comparison site to find a market rate for their needs but they will still need to speak to the supplier to get a bespoke deal and the site may not be searching the whole marketplace.

It’s also possible to use the information from the online comparison site to deal directly with a potential supplier and haggle for a better deal but not every small business owner will have the time or the enthusiasm to undertake this exercise.

Understanding business electricity rates per kWh

While understanding business electricity rates per kWh are important, firms also need to appreciate the standing charge, which is the amount the supplier will levy for delivering energy to their premises.

The best time to carry out the comparison exercise is when your current gas or electricity provider contacts you with details of your next year’s contract rates.

This is a prompt to find a new supplier to make the switch, though a government investigation highlights that 40% of firms have not switched and they could be overpaying for energy.

If you don’t want this to be you and your firm or organisation and if you are looking to make big savings on your overheads, then you should speak with the D-Energi team who will be able to explain more about how you can compare business energy prices per kWh and save.
