Warm Homes Discount

If you are a pensioner or are classed as a vulnerable customer, you may be entitled to extra help with your gas and electricity bills during the winter months, including the Warm Home Discount Scheme.

For winter 2017 to 2018, you could get a £140 discount on your electricity bill through the Warm Home Discount Scheme.

The discount won’t affect your Cold Weather Payment (if it is very cold for 7 days and you are on certain benefits) or Winter Fuel Payment (automatic payment for those on state pension and certain other benefits)

Not everyone gets the discount - you have to qualify.  You can qualify for the payment if you have a pre pay meter but do need to pay your electricity bill directly to qualify for the discount (i.e. if you pay your bills through your rent you would not qualify).
