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.

The Best Cheap Business Energy Guide


Every firm in the UK, regardless of its size, will need to keep its premises warm and power lights and computers, which makes finding cheap business energy a priority.

However, since many business owners are very busy, it’s understandable that this issue may take a back seat but it’s important that you check every year that your firm is not overpaying for its energy needs.

That’s because a firm’s energy costs can be one of its largest expenses so controlling these costs will help boost profitability.

And for many firms, it’s important to understand that a proposed deal should save you money so you really should understand how your bill is structured since most suppliers will offer the information in different formats.

Search for cheap business electricity deals

In the search for cheap business electricity deals, for example, you should have a recent bill to hand because this will have important information, including:

  • The meter number which identifies your actual property location
  • Contract details so you can compare energy tariffs
  • Types of charges – whether your bill has been estimated or has accurate readings to reveal your consumption habits.

You can then hand this information to a potential business electricity provider so they can then compile the bespoke quote for meeting your needs.

Find a cheap business gas provider

As with electricity, when you need to find a cheap business gas provider they operate to certain criteria to put their bespoke tariff together. Some of the issues include:

  • Your firm’s location
  • The industry you work in
  • Your business size
  • How many people you employ
  • Whether you have plans for expansion.

It’s important to appreciate that no two bills for a firm will be exactly the same, so it always pays to shop around and you may find that some providers may decline to quote because of your firm’s location.

The other important consideration for the costs that will make up a potential energy bill, will be for your unit rate and the daily standing charge.

There’s a big difference between the two since the standing charge is a daily cost that is levied to pay for the delivery of energy to your premises.

The unit rate is the amount you will pay per kWh (kilowatt-hour) of energy your firm uses.

The easiest way to access cheap business energy for meeting your firm’s needs, and to do so quickly, is to speak with the experts at D-Energi who can search the entire market on your behalf to find the right deal for meeting your needs and then take care of the switchover process for you.
