Energy Bills Support Scheme

This page has all the information that we and our call centre team have on the Energy Bills Support Scheme right now. As soon as the government publishes their policy on this, which should be over the summer, we’ll update this page.

You’re getting help with your energy bills

Through the government’s Energy Bills Support Scheme, all households in Great Britain with an electricity supply are getting a £400 grant to help with the cost of rising energy bills. 

The £400 payment will most likely be spread over the Winter period, starting in October. You don’t need to pay it back. 

The government is still finalising the scheme, and how the credit will be paid to customers, but you can find the latest information on the Energy Bills Support Scheme on the government website. We’ll keep this page updated, too.

Please be aware of scams

We’re aware that scam Energy Bills Support Scheme emails and text messages are being sent to customers. You can see examples here.

We’ll never ask for your bank details, so please be extra careful not to give them to anyone. If you think you might have been a victim of a scam or fraud, there’s advice on what to do on the government's website.
