Cost of living: help with energy bills for businesses
Energy Bill Relief Scheme
The government's Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) will cut energy prices for non-domestic energy customers such as businesses and charities.
This scheme will apply to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1 December 2021, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts and more.
You don't need to take any action to access this scheme. Suppliers will automatically apply the EBRS discount to your energy bill.
