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.

What You Need to Know to Compare Business Energy Deals


If you are a business owner, then switching energy suppliers offers an opportunity to reduce costs and one way is to compare business energy deals effectively.

This will mean searching the marketplace for the deal that best meets your needs and then switching to the new provider.

But why compare business electricity prices when you may not have the time for doing so?

The main reason is to ensure that you and your business is not paying more than you should be doing for your energy needs, and this exercise should be done every year to avoid being rolled over onto a deemed contract by your current provider which usually have higher rates.

Compare business electricity prices

When a business owner needs to compare business electricity prices, you could use an online site which saves time because they’ll be using your details to contact a range of suppliers in one go.

This means you will not be spending a long time on the phone speaking with individual suppliers plus it’s an easy way to find out what a potential new provider may offer.

However, any firm using a comparison site needs to appreciate that they may not be searching all of the potential energy suppliers and you will still need to contact directly the firm that is recommended.

That’s because the supplier is obliged to provide a bespoke quote that will meet your needs.

Compare business gas quotes

Busy business owners could also use these comparison sites to compare business gas quotes between providers.

As with electricity, the gas provider will need to know where your business is located, how many people you employ and the industry you operate in.

In addition, they will need to know your meter number so they will have the exact location of your premises; it may also help to have a recent bill to hand so you can give details of your gas and electricity usage.

There’s no doubt that the comparison site offers convenience and will potentially save time in sourcing a new provider, but there’s likely to be cheaper deals available that will better meet your firm’s needs.

In order to find these and compare business energy deals effectively by experts who understand how the markets operate means speaking with the friendly team at D-Energi.
