This year's scheme is now open

It’s the ninth year this government scheme has been running and it helps to support customers with a one-off rebate towards their energy costs. For 2019/20, the Warm Home Discount payment is £140.

There’s a limit to the number of rebates we can pay out under the scheme. So if you’re eligible don’t delay and apply immediately.
