For winter2018 to 2019, you could get £140 off your electricity bill through the Warm Home Discount Scheme.
The money isn’t paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill between September and March
Your electricity supplier was part of the scheme
Your name (or your partner’s) was on the bill
you were getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit (even if you get Savings Credit as well)
You may be able to apply directly to your electricity supplier for help if you don’t get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit but:
You’re on a low income.
You get certain means-tested benefits
Check with your supplier to see if you’re eligible and how to apply.
The Warm Home Discount Scheme (WHD) is funded by the energy suppliers. It provides direct and indirect financial support to vulnerable energy consumers. The WHD replaced the social tariffs and voluntary arrangements previously offered by energy suppliers.
