All UK householders with a domestic electricity meter will receive £400 towards the cost of electricity this winter through the UK government's Energy Bills Support Scheme.
Energy suppliers will deliver this support to households with an electricity meter between October 2022 to March 2023.
If you pay by direct debit you will get the discount automatically as a reduction to your monthly direct debit amount or a refund to your bank account following the monthly direct debit collection. If you have a pre-payment meter you’ll either get the discount as a credit when you top up or as redeemable vouchers, sent by SMS text, email or post. If you have a smart prepayment meter your discount will be credited directly to your smart meter.
Contact your electricity supplier directly if you have any queries.
