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.

Should You Change Your Business Energy Supplier?


Perhaps you and your firm have never asked the questions before, but should you change your business energy supplier?

There is a raft of reasons why this would be a sound move and the main one is the opportunity to enjoy much lower energy bills.

While many firms may decide that the process is too time-consuming and a distraction from their everyday activities, it will be time well spent.

That’s because there is the potential to save hundreds of pounds if you are a small business, every year and for larger enterprises, the savings could run into thousands of pounds.

This, in turn, means your overheads will be substantially reduced and profitability boosted which makes the exercise a worthwhile one to undertake.

Find cheap business energy prices with a new supplier

The process to find cheap business energy prices with a new supplier is a straightforward one and it needs to be appreciated that there is no loss of supply to your business premises when this process begins – and this too may be an issue preventing some firms from switching.

It’s also important to appreciate that while many firms and organisations may prefer to remain with one of the ‘big six’ suppliers, mainly because they have heard of them, there’s a lot to recommend switching to a new firm that will offer lower prices, better levels of customer service and the potential for other extras as well.

It’s at this point that firms thinking of switching supplier should appreciate that the market is regulated by Ofgem so switching to a small, or even a new supplier is not the risky move some firms may believe.

Also, these newer business electricity providers may offer other attractive benefits including an energy consultancy to help your firm use less energy which will mean that you will save even more on your energy bills.

Finding a new business energy provider

But how do you go about finding a new business energy provider? The easiest way is to use an online comparison website which will compare the offerings between business suppliers to find a quote that best meets your needs.

However, there are two issues to bear in mind: the first is that the website may not be searching the entire marketplace and, secondly, you will still need to speak with the supplier directly because their offering must be bespoke to ensure it will meet your needs.

You could also contact potential business energy suppliers directly and while this may be time-consuming it should lead to a better deal.


However, the simplest way of finding a new business energy supplier is to speak with the D-Energi team who will be able to source a new and cheaper deal within a few minutes and answer any questions you may have about the provider and the switchover process as well.
