Many, but not all, suppliers offer the Warm Home Discount. It is £140 off your electricity bill in the winter, if you qualify.
There is a Core Group and a Broader Group. The Core Group is the same across all suppliers who offer it and applies to people receiving the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit. The Broader Group varies but is usually for people on a low income who may need extra help. You need to contact your supplier to find out if you qualify and to make an application.
We expect the following suppliers to offer Warm Home Discount this year:
|Bristol Energy||M&S Energy|
|Economy Energy||Scottish Power|
|EDF Energy||Southern Electric|
|First Utility||Utility Warehouse|
If your supplier is not on this list, check with them to be sure as new suppliers start offering it each year.
Apply early as suppliers have limited funds.
If you change supplier, check that the new supplier also offers Warm Home Discount and, if you haven’t already received it, ask if you need to make a new application.
