How does the Warm Home Discount work?
Angelic Energy doesn’t offer the Warm Home Discount at the moment, though it’s something we may look at in the future.
The scheme means that, if you’re getting Pension Credit or are a low-income household, you could qualify for a one-off discount of £140 on your electricity bill, usually made between October and March. This doesn’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment. This means the funds are not given directly to you, but applied to your winter energy bill, meaning the discount is effectively handled by your energy supplier.
You can’t use your discount:
- To pay a debt with a previous landlord or supplier, only your current one.
- For more than three types of deductions (gas, water and rent for example) to pay a debt you owe. You can have more than three deductions if they’re towards current bills.
- For more information on this scheme and to find out if you’re eligible visit the government website www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme/.
