The Energy Bills Support Scheme provides a £400 non-repayable discount to eligible households to help with their energy bills over winter 2022 to 2023.


All households with a domestic electricity connection in England, Scotland and Wales are eligible for the discount. You do not need to apply for the discount, and there’s no need to contact your energy supplier. The discount will be applied to your monthly household electricity bill for 6 months starting in October 2022. You’ll get:

£66 in October and November
£67 in December, January, February and March
You’ll get the discount monthly, even if you pay for your energy quarterly or use a payment card.

If you have a traditional prepayment meter

You’ll get the discount from the first week of each month. You’ll get the discount automatically in one of the following ways,

redeemable vouchers, sent by SMS text, email or post

Just pop down to our Gale Street Post Office with this letter and ask them to scan the barcode at the bottom. They’ll transfer the credit onto your electricity key or gas card, then you can just top up as normal – just remember to take your ID with you from the list below

Valid UK passport
Valid UK Driving Licence
Valid EU driving Licence

Utility Bill Payment Card

Your electricity supplier will let you know in advance how you will get your discount. Your supplier should have your contact details, but if you’re not sure or you don’t receive any information from them, you should check that they have your latest number and email.
