There's only a few days left to claim the Utilita Warm Home Discount, says Tighean Innse Gall.
This deal lets some consumers get £140 off their electricity bills through the wider Warm Home Discount scheme (WHD).
"If you were with Our Power (Hebrides Energy tariff) and have been transferred to Utilita, their Warm Home Discount Scheme is only open for a short period of time and will close on the 14th of August at 11am.
"WHD scheme is a Government initiative that encourages domestic energy suppliers to provide support for customers who need it most.
"If eligible, you can get £140 off your electricity bill for winter 2019 to 2020. There are 2 ways to qualify for the Warm Home Discount scheme:
- If you get the guarantee element of pension credit – known as the ‘core group’
- If you’re on a low incomeand meet your energy supplier’s criteria for the scheme – known as the ‘broader group’
For more information on the broader group and to see if you are eligible for WHD with Utilita, please visit their website https://utilita.co.uk/help/warm-home-discount, and this is also the best place for Utilita customers to apply.
If you are in the core group with Utilita, you should automatically qualify for WHD. If you are in the broader group you will need to complete an application, which can be completed on their website https://utilita.co.uk/help/warm-home-discount. If you qualify, the warm home discount will appear as a credit on your electricity account before May 31, 2020. If you use a pre-payment meter, it will be credited to the meter – however, you may have to top-up a number of times before it is applied to your meter.
Other utility companies and particularly the bigger six provide WHD. If you would like help and support to apply for the Warm Home Discount with Utilita or any other company, Tighean Innse Gall are more than happy to help.
