We offered a council tax energy rebate scheme of £150 to homes in council tax bands A to D and a discretionary scheme if you needed help with your energy bills and received council tax support or other benefits.

Please see our help with bills page for information about the latest financial support that is available.

Council tax energy rebate

Households in England in council tax bands A to D on 1 April 2022, who were not exempt from council tax, were eligible for a £150 rebate payment. This also included band E homes that had a disabled band reduction to a band D. 

This was a one-off payment to households.

The deadline to apply for this scheme has passed. If you have applied but not received this payment, please contact us using the details below.

Discretionary council tax energy rebate

A discretionary council tax energy rebate was also available if you needed help with your energy bills, but did not qualify for the £150 payment above. 

To qualify for a discretionary payment of up to £150, you needed to have been living in the property on 1 April 2022 and:

Either:

  • You lived in a home with a council tax band of E to H and received council tax support 

Or: 

  • You were a tenant who is not liable for council tax, but you received benefit and were responsible for making energy payments (for gas or electricity) 

We produced a council tax energy rebate discretionary scheme document to explain more about how we gave out the funds. 

The deadline to apply for this scheme has passed. If you have applied but not received this payment, please contact us using the details below.

Energy Bills Support Scheme discount

All households in England will receive a £400 energy bill discount on their bills this autumn. You do not need to apply for the discount, and there’s usually no need to contact your energy supplier.

The discount is being applied to your monthly household electricity bill for 6 months, starting in October.

We are not responsible for looking after this scheme. If you have not yet received your first instalment, please contact your energy supplier.

Please visit the GOV.UK - Energy Bills Support Scheme discount web pages for more information.
