The Warm Home Discount Scheme, a one-off discount on your electricity bill, is still available to tenants up to 31 March.
Anyone still wishing to apply should contact their energy supplier or google their energy suppliers name and Warm Home Discount to access online application forms to see if they are eligible for the scheme.
Alex Hargreaves, Sustainability Officer said: “We think there may be many tenants on district heating schemes that aren’t aware they can apply for the Warm Home Discount payment of £140, but the good news is they can. The Warm Home Discount is paid by the electricity suppliers so it doesn’t matter whether you are on a district heating scheme, have gas central heating or storage heating, all can apply.”
She added: “You just need to meet the eligibility criteria of being in receipt of certain benefits. So, as this winter’s applications window will soon be closing, we want to encourage tenants to check with their electricity supplier and apply to the scheme if they think they’ll be eligible.”
