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 Make Sure You Are Getting The Best Energy Deal For Your Business


If you are currently receiving business energy (gas or electricity) from an agreed business energy supplier, this blog is for you. 

With the cost of living at such a high, and many businesses, particularly small and micro businesses navigating their way through increasing costs and expenses, as well as battling the change in consumer behaviour and spending as a result of the pandemic, saving money where you can is so important right now. 

At D-ENERGi, we have spent time understanding just how difficult the last few years have been for our business energy customers and know how important it is for businesses to understand their outgoings and be sure they are paying for what they need and are not being overcharged. Which is why we have written this blog, to help businesses navigate the tricky world of energy costs.


Pay close attention to your energy bills 

Firstly, you should be reading all your business energy bills and paying close attention to what they say. Although no one likes receiving a bill, it is an incredibly important part of ensuring you are not overpaying or paying for usage you do not require. 

For example, you could be paying for an estimated amount of energy used if you fail to submit a meter reading and end up being overcharged. Alternatively, your supplier may have quoted you an incorrect price per kilowatt hour (kWh).

In addition to this, you should also be checking for any additional fees or charges that may not have been previously agreed which could add up to a considerable amount each month. The easiest way to check this is by comparing your bills from one month to the next and being sure that all figures line up with what has been agreed in your contract.


What to do if you think you are overpaying

The best thing you can do if you have spotted an overpayment or consecutive bills where you have been overcharged is to speak with your energy supplier directly. Get through to their customer service team and discuss your bills.

You should also make sure to take a look at your current energy contract and check all the terms and conditions. Your supplier may have added in additional fees or charges that you were not aware of, so it is worth double checking.

Finally, if after speaking with your supplier you still feel like you are overpaying, don’t be afraid to shop around and compare what similar energy suppliers are offering. Often, you can find a better deal that will save your business significant amounts of money each year.
