The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme set up to help people who qualify get £140 credit towards their electricity costs. The Warm Home Discount Scheme is not the same as cold weather payments and winter fuel payments.
You may qualify if you are:
- getting the guarantee credit part of Pension Credit
- on a low income
Check with your supplier to see if they offer the Warm Home Discount – not all suppliers are part of the scheme.
If you’ve applied for the Warm Home Discount but you switch supplier before you get the payment, you have to apply again with your new supplier. Your new supplier might have different rules about who gets the discount. This doesn’t affect you if you get the discount automatically, without having to apply.
