The Warm Home Discount Scheme is a government initiative that gives some low-income households a £140 discount on their electricity bill.
It's a one-off discount administered by your energy supplier providing your energy supplier participates in the scheme. It isn't a cash payment, but comes as a reduction in your bill.
If you receive the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit or you / your partner are on a low income or get certain means-tested benefits you may be entitled to it.
The scheme opens once a year and is based on a first come first served basis. Electricity suppliers are starting to open their schemes now so check with your supplier to see if you’re eligible and how to apply or contact Stockport Homes Energy Advice Team for more information or assistance.
See the list of open schemes below and follow the link to apply online or call to complete the form over the phone.
*The scheme does not affect your entitlement to either the Winter Fuel Payment or the Cold Weather Payment
