What is the Warm Home Discount?
The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme aimed at tackling fuel poverty.
The scheme offers a payment of £140 towards the energy bills of households who need it most.
The scheme has two categories, the Core Group and the Broader Group.
If you were receiving your electricity supply from us on the qualifying date,4th July 2021, are of pensionable age and were receiving the Guaranteed Element of Pension Credit on this date, you are eligible for the Core Group rebate.
You won’t need to apply if you’re in the Core Group, instead, you will receive a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) detailing what you need to do next.
There is also a Broader Group which is determined by a wider set of eligibility criteria which allows us to help as many of our customers as possible.
The Broader Group has a limited number of rebates available which are awarded on a first come first served basis to those who apply and are eligible.
