Head to your Bulb Account to apply for the Warm Home Discount.

You can apply for the Warm Home discount now through the online form in your Bulb Account. The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme, paid for by suppliers, that gives people receiving certain benefits £140 towards their electricity bills. You can find out more about it and the criteria we use in our article on Warm Home Discount requirements.

Every energy supplier can set its own criteria for the Warm Home Discount, based on requirements from Ofgem, the energy regulator. As it’s our first time providing the Warm Home Discount, we’re currently using Ofgem’s recommended criteria. As we learn more through this process, we may expand the criteria in the future to better accommodate our members.

The form and what you’ll need to provide

As part of the process, we’ll ask you about the benefits you receive and your personal circumstances. Then you’ll be asked to upload photos or screengrabs of the benefits documents as proof. The name and address on the documents and on your Bulb account need to match. This is important, as the Warm Home Discount can only go to that person.

If you can’t upload photos, you can also send the documents in the post.
