    Warm Home Discount 2020/2021 Opening Soon £140 Off Your Electricity Bill

    As the nights are drawing in I've thought about the £140 you can get added to your electricity bill to help pay for the winter bill if you are on certain benefits. On the Gov website it say's the scheme will open on the 12th of October. On the last page it gives all the links to the different energy suppliers who are doing the warm home discount scheme so keep checking to see when this years form pops up for your supplier.

    Here is the link to the Gov website:

    Thanks for posting this. Checked it out and found British Gas warm home discount is open for application NOW so it's a good idea for BG customers to apply right away.

    SSE has opened theirs today & SSE are supposed to be in with OVO now so if your with OVO that one may be open now too so worth a check.

    I've got mine in

    I think there will be a heck of a lot more people this year eligible because so many more people are on benefits now
