Business Energy Costs and the Energy Bill Relief Scheme

The last year has been, to say the least, turbulent in the energy markets and the impacts on businesses have been well publicised with increased costs, fear for the future and the risk of jobs.

The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) has been introduced to support non-domestic energy users, including businesses, public sector organisations, and charities.


What is the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS)


The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) scheme applies a discount to gas and electricity unit rates for the majority of non-domestic energy customers.

The EBRS discount will be applied for six months, covering consumption from 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023.Discounts will automatically be applied to all eligible customer bills by their supplier. Customers are not required to take any action in order to receive any applicable discounts.



When does the Energy Bill Relief Scheme end?


The EBRS has brought some much-needed relief and certainty about pricing. However, the EBRS has been applied for a limited amount of time, covering consumption from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023.

Ironically, since the EBRS came into place, there has been a positive change in the energy market and prices have since fallen.

With March only a few weeks away, it has never been more important to get your energy contract reviewed to ensure you are on the best price and prepare for the end of the EBRS scheme.

At Power to Switch, we will take care of this for you and ensure you are on the best deal when the EBRS closes. Other schemes may come into play but why leave things to chance?
