Are you eligible for a £140 rebate on your energy bills?

Are you eligible for a £140 rebate on your energy bills?

Published 4 December 2014

Are you eligible for a £140 discount on your electricity bill?

If you are on a low income, you may qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme. Through the initiative, pensioners on low incomes and some other customers also on low incomes receive £140. If you qualify for the discount, you’ll get a letter this autumn or winter telling you either you don’t have to apply and that you’ll get the discount automatically or that you’ll need to apply by 30 January 2015 - the letter will tell you why and how.

If you’re not a pensioner on a low income, contact your energy supplier directly as each one has its own set of criteria, so you may still be eligible. It’s best to contact them sooner rather than later as some only have a limited fund pot.

Alex Hargreaves, WDH’s Tenant Sustainability Officer said: “If you’re not quite ready to switch your energy provider but are struggling to make ends meet, make sure you speak to your supplier about the Warm Home Discount Scheme. If you’re with one of the bigger providers, they must offer the scheme by law, so don’t miss out on cash you may be entitled to.”

For more information about the scheme, visit: https://www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme.

Or for more information about changing your supplier or tariff with WDH, find out more about our Switch and Save initiative.
