It’s that time of year again, some energy providers have already opened up their WHD schemes and others are due to open shortly. Take a look at the link below to see if you provider is a part of the scheme
If your supplier hasn’t opened their 2020/21 scheme yet, you may still be able to register for a notification when it does open.
If you haven’t already heard of the WHD scheme, it is a one-off credit to your electricity bill of £140 to help with winter heating costs, and is usually applied direct to your account by 31st March the following year.
If you think you may be eligible, check if your supplier is part of the scheme, and what their eligibility criteria are. As of April 2019, any supplier with 200,000 customers must offer WHD, but some of the smaller suppliers also participate.
Those who are eligible for the Core Group should receive their WHD without having to apply, but if you are eligible as part of the Broader Group the sooner you apply the better, as applications are dealt with on a first-come first-serve basis
