*UPDATE* - the Warm Home Discount 2018 - 2019 is now closed. Information about this year’s applications here.
It’s that time of year again - we have opened the Warm Home Discount applications! Find this application form here: https://www.ovoenergy.com/warm-home-discount.
Just to remind you, the Warm Home Discount is a government run scheme that provides a one-off payment of £140 off energy bills to help customers keep warm over winter. Broader Group customers will need to apply to receive the rebate.
You can find the eligibility criteria here: https://www.boostpower.co.uk/help/topics/payments-and-statements/payments/am-i-eligible-for-the-warm-home-discount.html.
Please be aware the rebate fund is limited to the OVO market share. Therefore, we will be offering rebates to 24 000 customers on a first come first serve basis. Core Group customer do not need to apply. The Department of Work and Pensions will advise you of eligibility and send you a letter.
Just remember you must be in receipt of the Guaranteed Element of Pension credit and be on supply with OVO on the 09/07/2017 to receive the rebate. If you have been successful in your application we will advise you and apply the rebate within 6 weeks of receiving your application. We might ask some of you for additional evidence. This is a process that we’re told to follow by the industry regulator OFGEM in order to double check that you meet the eligibility criteria. Don’t worry, if this is something we require we will let you know with plenty of notice. So there’s the Warm Home Discount in a nutshell. Now we want to hear about what you think: have you received this discount before and what was your experience of it? Have you got any other queries that our other users can answer?
