The government have announced an Energy Price Guarantee which will mean a typical UK household will pay no more than £2,500 a year on their energy bill for the next two years. This is automatic and applies to all households.  

Energy Bill Support Scheme

The Energy Bill Support Scheme means £400 off energy bills for households in Great Britain from this October.

You do not need to repay this discount. It will be given in six instalments between October 2022 and March 2023.

There is no need to apply for the scheme and you will not be asked for your bank details.

If you are on a traditional prepayment meter you will get the discount as a voucher or automatic credit from the first week of each month.

These will be sent via text message or email so make sure your supplier has your correct contact details.
