Good Energy is now part of the Warm Home Discount, which has been extended to include a wider range of energy suppliers. Read about what it is, if you’re eligible for the scheme and when you’ll receive your payment.  

This is a £150 payment from the government to support with the cost of heating your home over winter.  

If you’re looking for information about the other energy bill support schemes set up by the government, read about the Energy Price Guarantee and the Energy Bills Support Scheme.

Who can receive the Warm Home Discount?

Under the scheme, you may be eligible to receive the discount if you meet either of the following criteria: 

  • You or your partner receive the Guarantee Credit portion of Pension Credit 
  • You or your partner receive a qualifying means-tested benefit or tax credit and have been identified as living in a property with high energy costs. 

Please note, you must be the named bill payer for the property to qualify for the discount. So for example, if you rent and the electricity bill is paid by your landlord, then they will be contacted instead of you.

How do you get the Warm Home Discount?

If you qualify for the discount, the government will send you a letter in November or December with more information about how your payment will be added to your energy account. 

What should I do if I qualify for the discount and I don’t receive a letter?

If you still haven’t received a letter by January, you’ll need to contact the government Warm Home Discount helpline.
