£400 Energy Bills Support Scheme 2022/23
Friday 14 October 2023
The Energy Bills Support Scheme will provide a £400 non-repayable discount to all households in England with a domestic electricity connection, to help with energy bills over winter 2022 to 2023.
You’ll still get the discount if:
- You change your payment method
- You change your tariff
- You switch electricity supplier
- You move to a new address
- Your supplier goes bust
- You’re in arrears on your electricity bill payments.
The discount will be automatically 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.
Traditional prepayment meter users will get equivalent vouchers that you will need to redeem.
This article by The Money Edit details how each energy company will pay their customers the £400 discount.
