2. Warm Home Discount

During the winter the Government's Warm Home Discount Scheme could get you £140 off your electricity bill. The scheme opens on 18 October 2021.

The money isn’t paid to you; it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill between October 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.

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



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.
