Default Electricity - Warm Home Discount

To qualify for the Warm Home Discount you must get the following:
  • 80 or over and getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit
  • under 80 and only getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit (you won’t qualify if you also get Saving Credit)
BUT the majority of Energy Suppliers will give the discount if you qualify in a broader group of Low Income customers which include:

  1. Income related employment and support allowance (including Support element).
  2. Income based Jobseekers’ Allowance.
  3. Income Support.

  • Customer household has an annual income of less than £16,190 and the account holder is living with a mental or physical disability or illness, or there is an element of vulnerability in the home, e.g
  1. Households with children aged 5 years or under.
  2. Account holder (or partner) aged 60 or over.

  • Customer household has an annual income of less than £16,190 and spends 10% or more of their household annual income on fuel for adequate heating (usually 21 degrees for the main living room, and 18 degrees for other occupied rooms).
PLEASE NOTE: The above will vary for each supplier.
Good luck - hope you find your new home soon.
