Warm Home Discount Scheme terms and conditions



Warm Home Discount - terms and conditions


1.  As part of The Warm Home Discount - Scotland Broader Scheme (the ”Scheme”) we will provide a £150 (including VAT) rebate on the energy bill of eligible households in Scotland (“Rebate”). Rebates will be made by way of a credit to the energy account, top-up voucher for prepayment meters, applied directly to a Smart Pay As You Go meter, or by cheque. Where the Rebate is applied as a credit to your account, we apply this to your electricity account by default for dual-fuel customers (but you can request that this be transferred to your gas account if you wish). The method used to provide the Rebate will be determined at our discretion.

2.  The Scheme is open to households if:

i) your eligible household is in Scotland and takes its current domestic electricity supply from us and continues to do so until the Rebate has been paid.

ii) you or any other named individual, are the EDF electricity account holders living at the property and meet the Qualification Criteria (as set out in Condition 3 below)

3.  If you're an individual in an eligible household, you may make an application to receive a Rebate under the Scheme if you, or any other named individual, are the EDF electricity account holder and currently receive at least one of the seven benefits combinations, listed on our website at
