Energy Bill Support Scheme

August 6, 2022 3:00 PM

Energy meterThe government has announced how the Energy Bill Support Scheme will work.Each household's bill payer will be entitled to receive £400, paid in six instalments.

Households will see a discount of £66 applied to their energy bills in October and November, and £67 a month from December to March 2023.

Customers with a domestic electricity meter who pay by direct debit, either monthly or quarterly, or by card will see an automatic deduction off their bills. Those with "smart" prepayment devices will see an automatic monthly top-up added to their account, meaning they will have to add less credit to their meter for the total energy they use. Those with older "non-smart" prepayment devices will not get this money automatically, but will receive an energy bill discount voucher in the first week of each month, via text, email or in the post. Customers will have to redeem these in person at their usual top-up point, such as a local Post Office.
