Claim your Warm Home Discount and save £140

Written by:
Eligible consumers could claim £140 off their energy bills this winter via the government’s Warm Home Discount scheme.

Set up in 2011, Warm Home Discount provides financial support to customers at risk of fuel poverty. The saving is funded by energy providers, and a total of £320m is available. Not all suppliers are enrolled, but some consumers, such as those in receipt of the State Pension Credit or Jobseeker’s Allowance, are still eligible for the allowance. Click here for a comprehensive list of suppliers.

Consumers can check their eligibility and register for the discussant via their provider’s website. Applications are open now and close in March 2016. Savings are distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

Ed Kamm, chief customer officer, First Utility said: “With winter on the way, this valuable cash injection could be a real bonus to eligible households to help them stay warm as it gets colder. Customers save an average of £269 by switching, but this scheme gives even more valuable savings to those most in need. There are lots of reasons someone might qualify for the Warm Home Discount, so it is important for people to check if they are eligible.”
