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.

Tips to Compare Business Gas Prices


In a bid to reduce your firm’s overheads, you may be searching for tips to compare business gas prices so you can switch effectively.

Perhaps the most effective way to search the market place is to work with experts who can undertake gas procurement on your behalf with energy providers.

This means you will be utilising the firm’s expertise to take advantage of market conditions to reduce your business gas prices.

That’s because energy prices change constantly and there may be sudden price hikes that may coincide with your contract renewal, forcing up overheads, even though you may have an energy-efficient business so you need to speak with the D-Energi team to find the cheap gas deals.

Source a cheaper commercial gas quote

It’s this ability to source a cheaper commercial gas quote when you need to renew your gas supply contract that makes this gas procurement process really important because your firm could be tied into a contract for 12 months which means you are paying over the odds while doing so.

You may also undertake an energy consultancy to help you reduce the amount of electricity and gas you consume as a business, but you’ll still see your overheads increasing because of price rises despite these efforts.

It is possible to sign up with a gas procurement firm who can then manage your gas deal over the course of a contract you hold with them.

They will monitor gas supply markets for price changes, news and analysis and then will act promptly to save their customers money.

Source the cheapest gas tariff

Alternatively, you could source the cheapest gas tariff by contacting gas providers directly, but this can take a lot of time and there is terminology you will need to understand. You also need to appreciate whether you need a fixed or flexible tariff deal.

There’s also the opportunity of using a gas supply comparison site to find a potentially cheaper provider, but the website may not search all of the private providers available so many will not come to your attention.

While this may sound like an involved process to find cheaper gas prices, it really isn’t.

And for those firms that have never bothered searching the marketplace for a cheaper contract then they may find they have been rolled over onto an automatic contract with deemed rates and they could make, potentially, huge savings by simply switching to a new provider.

If yours is a small firm and you’ve been rolled over onto one of these deemed contracts, then you are free to move before the contract period ends to a cheaper deal.
