The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) in the UK will be extended to non-domestic clients in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

According to a statement released on Thursday by the UK’s department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, the government will expand its Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) to cover non-domestic customers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

For non-domestic consumers like businesses, nonprofit organisations like charities, and public sector organisations like schools, hospitals, and care facilities, the plan will offer a reduction on gas and electricity unit rates.

All non-domestic consumers who do not have access to the gas grid or who use alternative fuels will also receive a fixed payment from the government of 150 pounds ($180), with “top-up” payments for heavy users of heating oil dependent on usage.

The expansion of the energy price support programme comes as the nation’s energy-intensive firms struggle to keep up with the rising cost of electricity.
