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 Your Business Electricity Supplier to Save


When it comes to reducing your firm’s overheads, then switching your business electricity supplier can save you a substantial amount of cash.

It’s important for most firms to be competitive in their marketplace, so they will need to source a low-cost energy deal from a supplier.

Not only will your firm minimise outgoings but boost profits by ensuring that you are not paying more than you need to for your energy needs.

However, you’ll need to appreciate when your business energy contract is up for renewal and use this window of opportunity to shop around for a new provider.

There are some big savings to enjoy when comparing and then switching energy suppliers and it’s not the daunting task that some business owners will believe.

Cheaper business electricity rates

Sourcing cheaper business electricity rates can be done easily by using a price comparison service which will use your details to find a better offer from a select number of suppliers.

The most obvious downside to using a price comparison service is that they may not be searching the entire marketplace, but you could contact suppliers directly to find a deal.

However, this can be a time-consuming and often confusing process when trying to compare offerings between suppliers that will best meet your needs.

Since business energy contracts run for a fixed period means a firm will need to be organised to switch in the window or risk being moved across to ‘deemed’ rates, which tend to be dearer than those offered for new customers.

The best business electricity prices for your firm

There are a number of ways to enjoy the best business electricity prices for your firm and one way is to speak with the D-Energi team who can search the entire marketplace to find the best deal for you.

They can also take care of the switchover process and there’s no loss of energy supply when this is undertaken.

Before switching, you may also need to appreciate the length of the deal being offered, which could be anything from one to five years and the types of tariffs available.

Some suppliers will offer a higher unit rate but no standing charges, while others may offer a cracking deal with a low unit rate but higher standing charges.

This means that there may not be any real savings to be had and you could end up paying more than you currently do.

If you are looking to switch your business electricity supplier to save, then it will pay to speak with the experts at D-Energi who can explain more about your options and take care of the switchover process.
