Additional Information

           How is my Warm Home Discount payment made? 

It’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between November 2022 and 31st March 2023 or, if you have a Key or Smart prepayment meter, we'll send you a voucher to top up your meter.

  • If you pay for your energy monthly by Direct Debit or pay on receipt of your bill, we’ll add the discount as a credit to your electricity account.
  • If you top up your electricity meter (Pay As You Go) with a key, a card or online, we’ll send you a Post Office voucher, with instructions on how to collect the credit and add it to your meter.
