£140 towards your winter fuel bill

You could get £140 towards your winter fuel bill under the Warm Home Discount scheme.

The Warm Home Discount (WHD) is provided by medium and large suppliers of energy. The scheme supports households who would otherwise struggle to meet their energy bills. You can check if your supplier takes part at www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme/energy-suppliers

There are two ways to meet eligibility for the grant. As part of the:

  • CORE GROUP
    You or someone living with you must get the guaranteed element of Pension Credit. You will automatically qualify if your supplier participates.

  • BROADER GROUP
    If you are not in the core group, you need to apply for the grant. You or someone living with you should either receive an income-related benefit like Employment and Support Allowance and/ or have a total household income of less than £16,190 and/ or a long-term health condition. WHD for the broader group is allocated on a first come first served basis so it is important to speak to your supplier soon. Utilita has already closed applications for the broader group.

Plymouth Energy Community understands that it can be a little confusing as suppliers have different eligibility criteria. If you're unsure or would like some help please contact Plymouth Energy Communities Energy Team on 01752 477177 or email energyteam@plymouthenergycommunity.com.
