For winter 2016 to 2017, you could get £140 off your electricity bill through the Warm Home Discount Scheme. The money isn’t paid to you - it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill between October and April. The discount won’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.
You can also qualify for the discount if you use a pre-pay or pay-as-you-go electricity meter. Your electricity supplier can tell you how you’ll get the discount if you’re eligible, for example a voucher you can use to top up your meter.
You qualify for the discount if on 10 July 2016 all of the following applied:
Check with your supplier to see if you’re eligible and how to apply.
If you qualify for the discount, you’ll get a letter this autumn or winter telling you either:
You’ll receive your letter by 16 December at the latest.
Contact the Warm Home Discount Team on 0345 603 9439 if you don’t get a letter but believe you qualify.
The following suppliers are part of the scheme. Check whether you are eligible.

i have just been told i dont qualify for the warm home discount scheme although i got it last year and nothing has changed?
How do I go about getting the heating allowance ?
