What’s the new government support scheme for energy?

This £400 energy bills discount has been set up by the government to help households across Great Britain as energy bills continue to rise, due to increasing energy costs. 

The important stuff you need to know

  • All households across Great Britain will receive a £400 discount which will be paid in 6 instalments from October
  • The instalments will be paid out in various ways depending on how you pay for your energy
  • Customers are not expected to pay back the £400 discount
  • The first two discounts will be £66 followed by four payments of £67 from November until March 2023
  • You don't need to apply for the scheme. If you receive an email or text asking you to register your details or send your bank details to claim your discount, these won't be from us. 
  • Your payments will automatically be paid so there is no need to call us. We'll contact you individually in September, giving you the detail on how you'll receive your discount payments
