What is the Warm Home Discount?

The Warm Home Discount provides a rebate on electricity bills for vulnerable and low income households. This year, it’s £140.

Even better news: the scheme has recently been extended to 2021, with the rebate amount rising each year, so Londoners can receive the rebate in the years to come as well.

The catch?

Not everyone qualifies for the Warm Home Discount, and many people will have to apply.

Who qualifies automatically?

People who receive Pension Credit Guarantee qualify automatically and should receive their rebate in the form of a discount off their electricity bill in February or March each year.

Who should apply?

Each electricity supplier has different criteria for their discount scheme. You can only apply to your current electricity supplier. People who are likely to be eligible are those on Pension Credit (Savings), those on low incomes, and those on means-tested benefits.

Who should I contact?

To make life easier, we have compiled a list of all the participating electricity suppliers, including their phone number and website address specifically for Warm Home Discount applications. You can download a PDF of the list here.
