Keeping your home warm this winter - Warm Homes Discount Fund

£140 off your energy bill for those who qualify.

Thousands of households in Shropshire could be eligible for £140 off their fuel bills this winter, as part of the government-backed Warm Homes Discount scheme.

We, alongside local charity, Marches Energy Agency (MEA) are urging you to apply for the discount now, if you think you may be eligible, as funds are administered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

If you receive the guaranteed element of Pension Credit you will automatically receive the discount, which will be deduced from your fuel bill.  However, many more people will qualify against wider criteria, which include being on a low income, having poor health, or having children.  Each energy company sets their own criteria. 

To find out if you are eligible you can contact your energy company or MEA’s advice line on 0800 112 3743 for more information and support through the process.

A range of additional advice on lowering fuel bills, saving energy and keeping warm are available through MEA’s local advice line. Alternatively you can call us on 0800 112 3743.
