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 Should Swap Business Energy Suppliers Regularly


There are a number of reasons why you should swap business energy suppliers regularly and it’s not just about accessing cheaper bills.

While paying less for our energy will mean we reduce overheads and boost profitability, an important reason for looking to switch every year will help boost competition in the marketplace.

Sadly, a government survey has highlighted that around 40% of firms have never bothered to switch so they are probably paying more for their energy needs than they should be doing.

By searching the marketplace when your current provider contacts you with next year’s rates means there’s more competition between providers to attract your business to sign up with them.

This level of competition means that all firms will end up better off because the market is increasingly competitive.

Looking for new business electricity suppliers

So, if you are looking for new business electricity suppliers then you will find a competitive market and it’s important that you don’t restrict your search for new prices to those being offered by the ‘Big Six’ energy firms.

That’s because they may offer similar rates while there are smaller, newer entrants with better deals and tariffs that will help your firm save substantial amounts every year.

This is an offer that’s hard to ignore and a new electricity supplier may offer higher levels of customer service and other attractive features including a consultancy to help you use less electricity to make even greater savings.

Although most business owners will not have switching their energy supplier at the top of their to-do list this can be a financially rewarding undertaking to make it a worthwhile exercise.

Finding new business gas suppliers

As with switching electricity provider, when it comes to finding new business gas suppliers the process is very similar and while our gas bills tend to be cheaper there is still an opportunity to save.

Again, you should search the marketplace when your current provider gets in touch with a new contract and even small firms could save up to 25% on their current bill if they haven’t switched for a long time.

If you and your business haven’t bothered switching for several years you need to be reassured that the process of doing so is seamless and there’s no loss of supply of gas or electricity to your premises.
