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.

Why You Must Compare Energy Prices


Even when you are really busy running a business, it’s imperative that you compare energy prices on a regular basis.

The main aim of doing so is to ensure that you do not pay more than is necessary for your energy costs and help boost profitability by reducing overheads.

However, while you can keep an eye on what rivals would potentially charge for your business, you can only switch energy providers when they get in touch to tell you what your next year’s contract will cost.

This is, in effect, a window of opportunity for you to search the market place and find a better offer. You can also take this information back to your current provider and negotiate a better deal.

Or, and this probably makes more sense, you should switch to a new energy offering to reduce bills and help stimulate competition in the marketplace which benefits all busy business owners like yourself.

Business energy prices per kWh

There are a number of issues when it comes to comparing energy prices, but you will need to understand how the bill is put together so you’ll need to know what the standing charge is and the business energy prices per kWh (kilowatt hour).

The first part sees a fixed amount being levied for the delivery of energy to your business premises, while the business energy prices per kilowatt hour will vary between providers and this is where the savings can be made.

The unit cost for energy can vary though you should doublecheck any very low offer because they may simply be increasing the standing charge which may go unnoticed.

While you could contact energy providers directly to negotiate, it’s likely that as you are busy on a daily basis that you may occasionally check an online comparison site to check the current market rate for a firm of your size.

Lower business electricity rates per kWh

Using a comparison site is a quick and effective way to check on costs, but the site itself may not be searching the entire market and there could be other providers with lower business electricity rates per kWh that better meet your needs.

You also need to bear in mind that any offer will need to be a bespoke deal that is tailored for your business, which then makes comparing offers between providers more difficult than it is for checking the deals for our homes.

Thankfully, there is help at hand and there are experts who monitor the energy market and can search all providers to find a deal that will best meet your needs and reduce your overheads.

This will mean speaking with the experts at D-Energi who will take some details and a few minutes later will be able to tell you how much they can reduce your energy bill by and take care of the switchover process too – so get in touch with them today to find out more.
