Warm Home Discount Scheme

The Warm Home Discount Scheme for winter 2023 to 2024 opens on 16 October 2023. This page will be updated then.

The scheme is different if you’re on a low income in Scotland. Contact your electricity supplier as soon as possible to find out if you’re eligible and how to apply. Do not wait – the number of discounts is limited.

You could get £150 off your electricity bill for winter 2022 to 2023 under the Warm Home Discount Scheme.

The money is not paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between October 2022 and March 2023.

You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity and you’re eligible. Contact your supplier to find out.

The discount will not affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.


There are different ways to qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme depending on where you live.

If you live in Scotland

You qualify if you either:

Pre-pay or pay-as-you-go meters

You can still qualify for the discount if you use a pre-pay or pay-as-you-go electricity meter.

Your electricity supplier can tell you how you’ll get the discount if you’re eligible, for example a voucher you can use to top up your meter.

Park (mobile) homes

You apply a different way if you live in a park home.

Apply for the Park Homes Warm Home Discount.
