Warm Home Discount

You can now register your interest for the 2016/17 Warm Home Discount scheme. As the details of the 2016/17 Warm Home Discount Scheme won’t be finalised until Summer 2016 don’t worry if you don’t hear from us for a while. We’ll write to you by the end of the summer with the details.

We’ve reached our maximum number of applications for this year’s scheme and we’re not accepting any more applications.

We’re serious about helping our customers reduce their energy bills, particularly those in fuel poverty. One of the ways we can do this is through the Warm Home Discount Scheme, where we’re able to offer eligible customers a discount on their winter electricity bills.

Other ways we can help

If you receive certain benefits and own or privately rent your home, you could be eligible for funding towards energy saving home improvements. This may include loft insulation, cavity wall insulation or a new A rated gas replacement boiler if yours was installed before 2010 and is broken or not working properly.
