You do not need to apply for the Energy Bills Support scheme, nor do you need to contact your energy supplier in order to receive it.
Eligible households (all those with a domestic electricity connection) will receive a total of £400.00 to be paid in instalments across six months.
A monthly discount of £66.00 will be applied to your energy bill in October and November 2022, and then £67.00 in December 2022, and January, February, and March 2023.
Your energy supplier should contact you about your discount, and will automatically apply this to your account. For more information, and details on how you may receive the discount depending on your payment method, you can refer to the government information page.
