The Government has announced a package of support to help households with rising energy bills.
Millions of households will receive up to £350 to help with the cost of living following a rise in the energy price cap.
Energy Bill Discount Scheme
All domestic electricity customers will get £200 off their energy bills from October. Customers will pay back the discount in equal instalments over 5 years, starting from financial year 2023-2024, when wholesale gas prices are expected to come down.
Council Tax rebate
Households in Council Tax Bands A-D will get a £150 rebate in their Council Tax bill in April this year. This rebate won’t have to be repaid and will be made directly by us.
A discretionary fund of £144 million in England has also be provided to support vulnerable people and individuals on low incomes that do not pay Council Tax, or that pay Council Tax for properties in Bands E-H.
We understand that this is a challenging time and we will do what we can to help you. We will publish details on our website and social media on how we are going to manage this support.
