09/09/2022 – Support for businesses and non-domestic properties
Providing support to businesses
While the majority of UK non-domestic customers are on fixed price energy deals, some are not. Businesses did not benefit from the Ofgem price cap and there was a risk that some would fall through the gap, unable to fix their energy price and unable to access the kind of support we are making available to households.
A new 6 month scheme for businesses and other non-domestic energy users (including charities and public sector organisations like schools) will be offered support as is being provided for consumers.
After this initial 6 month scheme, the government will provide ongoing focused support for vulnerable industries.
There will be a review in 3 months’ time to consider where this should be targeted to make sure those most in need get support.
Further details will be published shortly.
