Our Energy Expert Helen Dean wanted to bring attention to the fact that the Warm Home discount for 2018/10 is now OPEN.
Electricity suppliers are now open for applications for the Warm Home Discount of £140. This will be paid this winter 2018, and spring 2019 to low-income customers who are pensioners, families with young children, or have a long-term illness or disability.
For more information on the Warm Home Discount, and how to claim it, visit https://www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme.
For a list of energy suppliers running the scheme, and links to their websites and online application forms, visit https://www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme/energy-suppliers
This scheme is run on a first come first served basis, and there is usually only a window of about 3 months from September to make a claim. For some suppliers, even if you have received the discount previously, you’ll need to apply again for future schemes.
