The Government wants heat network consumers to receive equivalent support to mains gas and electricity consumers. Therefore, on 21 September, the Energy Bill Relief Scheme was announced which will see energy prices for non-domestic energy customers such as businesses, charities and public sector organisations cut – protecting them from rising energy costs. These discounted prices for wholesale gas and electricity will ensure lower prices for customers on communal heat networks.
