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.”
