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.

Switching Tips For A Business Gas Supplier


With so much competition in the marketplace, you may be looking for switching tips when it comes to finding a new business gas supplier.

All firms should carry out a search of the market every year when their current supplier contacts them with details of their next year’s contract.

One reason for this is that no firm or organisation should be over-paying for their gas supply.

But unless you search all of the potential suppliers, how will you know that you are on the best rate for meeting your needs?

Search the business gas supply market

The short answer is that you will not, so you should search the business gas supply market using the expertise of the D-Energi team.

That’s because, unlike a business gas comparison website, they are able to search all potential suppliers and find the best deal to save you money.

You could, of course, contact potential suppliers directly but this can be confusing and time-consuming.

One problem is that a potential supplier will need to tailor their offering to be a bespoke deal and comparing these on a like-for-like basis can take time.

Understand business gas rates

This means that you’ll need to understand business gas rates to ensure that you really will enjoy cost savings and boost profitability.

It’s crucial that you calculate what the potential deal will cost over the course of a contract to ensure it really is cheaper.

Put simply, you may be swayed by a lower unit rate for the gas you use but may not appreciate that there is a much higher standing charge, which is paid to the National Grid for supplying gas which could make your bill more expensive.

This then makes the entire exercise of finding a cheap business gas supplier a waste of time and if you’ve agreed to the new deal, then you’ll be locked into it for 12 months – unless you are a small business and are able to leave it.

An easy way to source a potential new deal might be to consider a business gas comparison website but you will need to appreciate that the site itself may not be searching all potential suppliers and will only restrict their search to a limited number.

In addition, you will still need to speak with a recommended supplier because their offering must be bespoke for meeting your needs.
