The new Energy Bill Relief Scheme will cut energy prices for businesses, charities and public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals. The scheme will run for six months covering energy used from 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023. The level of price reduction for each business will vary depending on their contract type and circumstances.
If you’re on a fixed price contract agreed after 1 April 2022 a price cut will automatically be applied to your bill.
The savings will first be seen in the October bill, which will typically be received in November.
There'll be a review in three months into how Government continue assisting vulnerable customers with their energy costs.
If you’re on a default or variable tariff your prices will also be automatically cut but you may be able to save more by moving to a new fixed price contract for the duration of the scheme.
Beware of scams. You don’t need to apply for the scheme.
