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 Your Firm Will Benefit when You Switch Energy Providers


No-one, including firms and organisations, wants to be paying more than they should be doing for anything which is why your firm could benefit when you switch energy providers.

This might be a topic that turns some business owners off, after all, a government survey has revealed that around 40% of firms have never bothered switching energy providers.

This inactivity probably means they are overpaying for their energy needs because they’ve been moved across to a ‘deemed’ rate automatically.

The best time to see whether there are cheaper providers out there is when your current supplier contacts your business to tell you what your next year’s tariff will be.

Undertake an energy switch between suppliers

This is a great opportunity to undertake an energy switch between suppliers and potentially save a large amount from your overheads.

While this is an exercise all firms should undertake every year, the amount you can save will vary and this depends on where your firm is located, how much energy you use and which industry you are in.

It’s also relatively straightforward, finding a new supplier; you could contact potential suppliers directly or use an online comparison site for this purpose.

The issue with the first route is that you may restrict your search to the ‘Big Six’ suppliers which, while being well-known, may also offer fairly similar offers which make switching irrelevant.

The issue with the second route is that the comparison site may not be searching the entire marketplace and you’ll still need to speak with the recommended provider and give them your details so they can tailor an offering to meet your needs.

Accessing cheaper prices for your energy needs

There is a third, potentially easier way, of accessing cheaper prices for your energy needs and the switching process is taken care of.

In addition, the real attraction to this third route is that it only takes a few minutes for an expert to search the whole of the energy supply marketplace in the UK to find a deal or tariff that will meet your needs.

It’s also possible to sign up for a deal that impresses you for several years, which will bring peace of mind should you believe that energy prices may increase over the next year or so.

For those interested in this quick and easy way to switch energy providers, then it’s time to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi who will be able to find a new deal and take care of the switchover process in just a few minutes.
