Thank you for your interest in the extraenergy Warm Home Discount scheme. The scheme is now open, and you can apply for your payment below.
This scheme is designed to help those who may be struggling to pay their bills, by providing a one off payment of £140. This credit will be added to your account automatically and show on your next bill, or in the case of prepayment customers, you will receive a voucher which you can use to top up your meter at your local post office.
The eligibility criteria is split into 2 groups, as shown below:
If you receive Pension Credit, you’ll automatically be considered for the Core Group. If you meet the below conditions you do not need to do anything now to get the 2017/18 discount as this will be applied automatically. You can find out more information at www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme.
You will qualify if you:
