Are you eligible for the £140 Warm Home Discount?


Are you eligible for the £140 Warm Home Discount?

Published 2 August 2018

We may just be coming out of the longest heatwave since the summer of 1976 but many of the energy suppliers’ Warm Home Discount schemes are now open to pre-register for winter 2018-19 applications.  If you qualify for the scheme, it can provide a welcome £140 towards your winter energy bills.
If you are on a low income or get certain means-tested benefits, you may be eligible. Check with your electricity supplier so you don’t miss out.  They can provide more information and tell you how to apply.  Some suppliers have a limited pot of money available, so don’t leave it too late to apply.
Schemes generally open for applications in the Autumn, however, some are already open to pre-register, such as E.ON, OVO and Utility Warehouse, so check with your supplier.  

However, if you are a Utilita customer you will need to act now as applications can only be made between 2pm 8 August and 2pm 15 August.
If you receive the Guaranteed Element of the Pension Credit you may automatically qualify for the scheme, so you shouldn’t need to apply, and will hear from your electricity supplier by 7 December 2018.
Not all suppliers are part of the scheme. If you are thinking of switching supplier, you may want to consider if your new supplier is in the scheme.
Don’t forget - it’s easy to switch supplier using our Switch and Save service  or by calling 0800 112 0206 or 01259 220219.
For further help with your energy bills you can contact the Sustainability Team at sustainabilityteam@wdh.co.uk or OneCALL 0345 8 507 507.
