What is the Warm Home Discount?

The Warm Home Discount is a one-off payment of £140 to help customers who are struggling to pay their energy bills.

The scheme for the 2017-18 Warm Home Discount is now open and you can apply, if you meet the eligibility criteria outlined by the industry regulator OFGEM.


Apply here


Please be aware, the scheme is open on a first come, first serve basis and we’ll be closing the applications at short notice.

Who can get it?

The Warm Home Discount scheme is separated into a ‘Core’ group and a ‘Broader’ group:

Core group: You’re part of the Core group if you were getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit on 9th July 2017. If we were supplying your energy on this date, you’ll get the discount automatically by 31st March 2018.

Broader group: You can apply for the Warm Home Discount if you meet the eligibility requirements listed here. If you’re accepted, you’ll get money off your OVO Energy bill between September 2017 and 31st March 2018.

It’s awarded on a first come, first served basis to around 23,000 Broader group customers.

We’ll be closing the scheme at short notice, so the sooner you send us your application, the more likely you are to receive the rebate.

Can I get the Warm Home Discount if I leave OVO?

Core Group - if you’re in the Core group, you’ll get the discount from whoever was supplying your energy on the 9th July 2017. If that was us, you’ll get the payment from us, even if you change energy suppliers.

Broader Group - if you apply for the Warm Home Discount through OVO and then switch to another energy supplier, before we make the payment, your application will be cancelled automatically.

How will I know if I've been successful?

Once you've applied, we'll get in touch within 5 days of receiving your application.

If you're successful, some time between December and March you'll see a credit of £140 added to your account balance or meter.
