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 Guide to a Cheaper Business Energy Quote


You and your business could reduce the cost of your overheads by finding a cheaper business energy quote for meeting your needs.

Essentially, you will be able to access a plan that will charge you less and you need to compare energy tariffs effectively to see which one really will help your business save on its energy costs.

And as a guide, the first step is to think about your cheap business energy needs from a potential supplier and then compare quotes from as many different providers as you possibly can.

You should only restrict your search for those suppliers who offer deals and tariffs for small and medium-size firms so you get the quotes based on your needs.

Compare a business electricity quote

This means that when you come to compare a business electricity quote between providers, you should understand the terminology being used and among the crucial terms are:

  • Fixed tariff: your electricity costs will remain the same throughout the contract length and usually offers the cheapest option.
  • Variable tariff: this is a flexible tariff, which sees the prices being paid varying to match the wholesale market moves. You could save if prices fall but there’s no guarantee this will happen.

Also, for those firms interested in their green credentials, you can access electricity comes from renewable sources so you will have eco-friendly energy – an increasingly important aspect of running a business today.

You may also find that your geographic location will mean some suppliers decline to quote but others will be more enthusiastic and this highlights that providers use different criteria when putting their tariffs together.

Searching for a business gas quote

As with electricity, when searching for a business gas quote from providers, you will need to understand the terminology mentioned previously, and also:

  • The unit price: this is the amount that you pay for every kilowatt-hour of gas or electricity used
  • The standing charge: a daily amount paid to the supplier for providing the service. This is not a fixed amount and can vary hugely between providers.

Finally, when it comes to asking providers to quote, you could approach them directly or use a business energy comparison website.

With the first route, this can be time-consuming and with the second option, you may find that the number of providers is restricted.

The best way to find a cheaper business energy quote for meeting your gas and electricity needs is to contact the experts at D-Energi who can search the entire market for you, negotiate with the provider and take care of the switchover process. Contact them today to find out more.
