Reminder to save £140 on energy bills

Angus MP Mike Weir has called on his Angus constituents to ensure they are taking advantage of the free help and support that could save them £140 on their energy bills if they are eligible.

British Gas has announced that its Warm Home Discount Scheme, which helps those in need with £140 towards their energy bills, is open for registrations (since May 1).

The Warm Home Discount Scheme is a five-year scheme introduced by Government and delivered by the larger energy suppliers. It helps those in need with their winter energy costs by paying a credit onto the energy account of the qualifying account holder.

All of the major suppliers have set up schemes. British Gas has set out its eligibility criteria for receiving this discount and has no restrictions on the number of customers who can sign up.

Applications to the British Gas scheme can be made by calling the British Gas Home Energy Care team (for credit meter customers) on 0800 072 8625 or their Here to Help team (for Pay as you Go customers) on 0800 294 8604.
