Warm Home Discount

The Warm Home Discount (WHD) is a new scheme funded by energy suppliers. It came into force on 1 April 2011 and will provide approx £1.13 billion in direct and indirect financial support to vulnerable energy consumers over the next four years.

The scheme works in two groups. The ‘Core’ Group and the ‘Broader’ group. Households in the ‘Core’ group will automatically receive the discount on their energy bills whilst those households in the ‘broader’ group will have to submit an application directly to their supplier.

The following suppliers are members of the WHD scheme:

  • British Gas / Scottish Gas / Sainsbury’s Energy
  • EDF Energy
  • E.ON Energy
  • npower
  • Scottish and Southern Energy / Atlantic / Scottish Hydro / SSE / Southern Electric / SWALEC / EBICO / Equipower / M&S Energy
  • ScottishPower
