The UK Government has published details on how the energy support scheme which will help charities in Northern Ireland this winter.  Discounts will be applied between 1 October 2022 and 31 March 23.

The Energy bill relief scheme will be applied automatically to eligible bills.  The supported price has been set at £211 per megawatt hour (MWh) for electricity and £75 per MWh for gas.

It will not be the same as the final per unit price paid by non-domestic customers, which will also reflect other costs such as network charges and operating costs, plus the impact of competition between suppliers.


The scheme will be available to everyone on a non-domestic contract including voluntary sector organisations such as charities;  businesses; and public sector organisations such as schools, hospitals and leisure centres.

It will apply to those with fixed-price contracts agreed on or after December 2021; new fixed-price contracts; variable 'day ahead' tariffs; deemed/out of contract or standard variable tariffs; or flexible purchase contracts.
