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 Business Energy Quote Process


For those business owners who are looking to reduce their energy overheads will mean understanding the business energy quote process to ensure their new deal will save money.

The first step is to understand business gas prices because there are various costs that will have an influence on the overall bill.

For a busy business owner, it may be difficult to understand what these costs are and why you are being charged them.

However, to help focus your attention, there are just two costs that need to be calculated properly. They are:

  • The unit cost: This is the price that you will be paying for each unit of gas and this is measured in kWh (kilowatt hours).
  • The standing charge: This is an amount charged every day for supplying energy to your premises and will vary between suppliers. Also, this amount will be charged whether you use gas or electricity on any given day.


Enjoying a cheaper business electricity quote

The secret to enjoying a cheaper business electricity quote is to find a supplier offering lower unit costs and standing charges than you currently pay.

While that sounds straightforward, not every business owner will take the time to calculate over the course of the year what a potential new deal will cost them.

The other issue is that a small firm may believe it’s not worth shopping around to find a cheaper business or gas quote, but the savings will make this worthwhile.

The new supplier will want to know how much energy your firm consumes, where you are located and how many employees you have. They will also need to know if you have plans to expand or they may offer a dedicated account manager to boost customer service levels.

Access a cheaper business gas quote

Unfortunately, some of these factors to access a cheaper business gas quote may appear to be surprising.

For example, the geographic location means that suppliers are charging different amounts for delivering gas and electricity to firms around the country.

You may even find that the industry you work in also affects the amount you pay, so there’s little point in comparing your gas bill to the firm next door if they aren’t in the same industry with a similar number of employees.
