The Warm Home Discount is a Government scheme, designed to provide financial assistance to low income and vulnerable households. In the 2014/15 financial year, eligible households will receive a discount of £140 on their electricity account by 31 March 2015.
Unfortunately the scheme is now closed to new applications for the 2014/15 financial year. This is to allow us to process the applications we already have, and ensure all successful applicants receive their discount.
We expect to start taking applications for 2015/16 from summer 2015. You will be able to download an application from here then. Or you can call us on 0800 300 111* in July to request a form be posted to you.
We've got lots of other ways you can save money, such as changing the way you pay to monthly Direct Debit and signing up to paperless billing. You can also lower your energy bills by making small changes around your home. Our energy efficiency advice and helpful tips give you easy ways to save energy and money.
For winter 2014/15, people born on or before 5th July 1952 will be eligible to receive a Winter Fuel Payment from the Government. The amount you will receive depends on your circumstances, but will be between £100 - £300.
Please note: If you have a Green Deal agreement in place, any prices or discounts quoted do not include your Green Deal payments.
If you need help or have a question that we haven't answered here, please call us on 0800 300 111*
