Government Financial support
Warm Home Discount scheme
If you are a pensioner or on a low income, you may qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme. This gives a rebate to pensioners on low incomes and some other customers on low incomes. You could get £150 off your electricity bill for winter 2022 to 2023 under the Warm Home Discount Scheme. This would be in the form of a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between October and March.
The scheme reopens November 2022.
If you are not a pensioner on a low income, you may still be eligible for the Warm Home Discount Scheme. Each energy company has different criteria, so contact your supplier to check whether you are eligible for.
