Warm Home Discount Scheme

Have you checked if you are eligible for the Warm Home Discount Scheme? Eligible households could save £140 off your electricity bill.

The money is not paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between September and March. You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity. Contact your supplier to find out.

There are 2 ways to qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme:

How you apply for the Warm Home Discount Scheme depends on how you qualify for the discount.

Pre-pay or pay-as-you-go meters

You can still qualify for the discount if you use a pre-pay or pay-as-you-go electricity meter.

Your electricity supplier can tell you how you’ll get the discount if you’re eligible, for example a voucher you can use to top up your meter.

The 2019 to 2020 scheme will start on 14 October 2019. If you are on benefits or a low income and think you might be eligible you can apply via your fuel supplier’s website.

The discount will not affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.
