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 Compare Business Energy Providers Every Year?


The short answer to the question, ‘Should you compare business energy providers every year?’ is most definitely ‘Yes’!

That’s because all firms and organisations should be looking at their energy overheads on a regular basis to ensure they are not paying more than they should be doing for their energy needs.

If yours is one of those firms who has never switched energy providers previously, then it’s likely that your organisation has been switched automatically to a ‘deemed’ contract, which tends to be dearer than for those offered to new clients.

The best time for searching and comparing business energy providers is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your contract rates for the coming year to see whether there are better and cheaper providers available.

Compare business electricity providers

There is no doubt that the market for supplying business energy is a competitive one, so you should compare business electricity providers to see who has the best deal available.

You could contact electricity suppliers directly, give them a few details and see whether they have a cheaper tariff. This also means it can be a confusing and time-consuming process, and there may be better deals available from other suppliers that you won’t get to hear about.

Alternatively, you could use an online business energy comparison site and these will search a range of potential suppliers to see what savings are available.

These sites are quick and easy to use and you have to give a few details though you will still need to speak with a potential provider directly, so they can offer a bespoke tariff to meet your needs.

Firms wanting to compare business gas suppliers

These issues also extend to those firms wanting to compare business gas suppliers and you’ll need to shop around, but the marketplace is a competitive one for those firms that make the effort to source a new provider.

It may be that a smaller energy provider will best meet your needs and also help you reduce consumption levels to help you deliver even greater savings and help boost your green credentials as a result. Using less gas and electricity for our everyday needs is an increasingly important aspect of business today.

It also needs to be appreciated that for those firms who shop around that they don’t target their efforts at the ‘Big Six’ suppliers as they may find that their prices are similar and there are no real savings to be made and they then don’t bother switching.

This could be an expensive mistake to make and the best way to compare business energy providers in the UK is to speak with the friendly team of experts at D-Energi who can search the entire marketplace in just a few minutes to find a deal that will not only meet your everyday needs but also be cheaper as well.
