Warm Home Discount applications open now

Did you know you might be eligible for £150 off your electricity?

In the autumn many energy suppliers open their applications for a financial support scheme called ‘Warm Home Discount’.  This is a one-off payment of £150 towards your electricity bill.  It’s added to your energy account or if you’re on a pre-payment meter is added as credit.   

If you receive Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit, you should get the Warm Home Discount automatically.  If you are on a low income or receive certain benefits, you’ll need to apply for the discount.  Different energy suppliers have different rules about who can get the Warm Home Discount.  You can check out the Changeworks advice page to see if you might qualify.   

To find out more about the Warm Home Discount, and other financial support, visit the Financial Support section of the Changeworks Energy Advice Library.
