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.

Your Checklist to Compare Business Energy Prices


If you need a checklist to compare business energy prices, then this article from the experts at D-Energi will help.

But why should you compare business energy deals and tariffs when you’re already under contract?

The simple answer is that you should begin your search for a new supplier for at least one month before your contract ends and up to six months beforehand.

This means the transition to a new gas or electricity provider will be seamless and, more importantly, you will not face the prospect of being rolled onto more expensive out of contract rates.

If your business has not switched suppliers in recent years then it is highly likely that you will be paying more than you should be doing for your gas and electricity supply since these out of contract rates tend to be more expensive than they are for new customers.

Compare business electricity providers

Most firms will need to compare business electricity providers every year because it’s a substantial overhead and it will need to be reduced effectively.

This means you will need to contact potential providers, give them some details and then ask for a bespoke quote.

You could contact these providers directly but this will take a lot of time, depending on how many you speak with.

Or you could compare business electricity prices online using a comparison site, but you need to be aware that the platform may not be asking lots of providers to quote.

This means there are probably cheaper deals available that you will be unaware of.

Compare business gas providers

While gas overheads tend to be much lower, it is still worthwhile making the effort to compare business gas providers to ensure you’re on the deal that is right for you and your gas consumption levels.

With both gas and electricity you should get several quotes from different suppliers and compare them to see which is offering the best deal for meeting your needs.

This is probably an opportunity to consider other ways of reducing your utility bills, including the prospect of undertaking an energy consultancy to help you reduce consumption levels and deliver even greater savings.

However, the most effective way to compare business energy prices between providers is to speak with the experts at D-Energi because they can access the entire market to ensure that you get the best deal for meeting your needs.
