It’s not too late to check and see if your eligible for the British Gas Warm Home Discount. If eligible £140 could be taken off your electricity bill for winter 2017 to 2018 under the Warm Home Discount Scheme.
There are 2 ways to qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme:
1. You get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit - known as the ‘core group’
2. You’re on a low income and meet your energy supplier’s criteria for the scheme - known as the ‘broader group’
The discount won’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment and you can still qualify for the discount if you use a pre-pay or pay-as-you-go electricity meter.
To find out if your eligible either visit the British Gas Website, or call 0800 072 8625 (for pay as you go energy customers call 0800 294 8604)
The scheme will be closing soon, so make sure you get your applications in as soon as possible!
