Warm Home Discount
A lot of people don’t realise that they can apply for the ‘warm home discount’ if you’re on benefits. You may be eligible for it – it provides a discount for your energy bill for the following year. You apply direct to your energy provider and, if eligible, you will get the discount. It applies even if you use a cash meter. Search the website of your energy provider or phone them up to find out how you apply.
Each company can be different and have different criteria. This year the scheme will open on 15 October 2018. This date may change so keep checking to make sure.
