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.

Source Cheaper Business Gas Deals


For most firms and organisations, gas is an important part of their daily operations and it’s always a good idea to source cheaper business gas deals when your current contract comes to an end.

Indeed, when your supplier tells you what your next year’s gas rates will be, then this is the prompt to see what other business gas suppliers may offer.

It’s also worth appreciating that should you not search the marketplace, for example, you may be too busy, then you run the risk that your current supplier will move you across to a ‘deemed’ rate contract, which tend to have higher prices.

And unless you are a very small business, you will be locked into these higher prices for another year unless you decide to buy your way out of the contract.

For those business owners who may not have the time to search the market, then you could utilise the expertise of the D-Energi team to do this on your behalf.

Find a new business gas supplier

Not only will the exercise to find a new business gas supplier take just a few minutes, but you will be reassured that this search will scour the entire market for a potential new provider.

The alternative to using D-Energi is to use one of the many business gas supply comparison websites that are available to find a better and cheaper deal.

While this is a quick way to find the market rate for your gas supply, the website itself may not be searching the entire market so it is likely there are better and cheaper deals available that will not be brought to your attention.

Also, you may decide to contact potential suppliers directly and this may mean focusing attention on the ‘Big Six’ since these are household names but this is a time-consuming and confusing process.

One of the issues is that the supplier must offer a bespoke deal and you need to compare the offerings between providers to ensure that their deal is the best one for you and your business.

Understanding business gas rates

Should you opt to use a comparison site or contact suppliers directly, it will also mean understanding how business gas rates are put together.

There is a range of factors affecting these rates, including your firm’s geographic location, how many premises you may have and also how many people you employ.

A potential supplier will also need to know whether you have plans for expansion or even to move premises.
