To help tackle fuel poverty during the Cost of Living crisis, the government is providing an £400 rebate on fuel bills for everyone in the UK.
The £400 is going to be paid monthly, for 6 months starting in October 2022. October & November 2022 payments will be £66 each while December through to March 2023 will be £67.
How this money is paid to you is dependant on how you chose to pay your bills. See the list below to find out how you will be paid.
- Fixed Direct Debit customers will receive the money automatically as a deduction to their monthly Direct Debit. If a customer's EBSS payment takes their Direct Debit below £1 we may put them on a ‘payment holiday’, where we temporarily pause the Direct Debit.
- Pay on receipt of bill customers and regular cash payment customers will see the money automatically applied as a credit to their energy accounts in the first week of each month. This will show as a credit in the payments section of their monthly bill.
- Smart prepayment customers will see the money credited directly to their meters as a top up in the first week of each month.
- Traditional prepayment customers will be provided with vouchers usually by the middle of each month.
