Energy Rebate Discretionary Payments

The government's one-off payment of £150 to help with rising energy costs has been made to properties in Bands A to D.

We are now launching a discretionary payment scheme for properties in Bands E to H. The funding available is limited, so will be distributed in two phases.

If you are eligible for this payment, we will send you a letter inviting you to apply. You will need this letter before you start your application.

You will also need your National Insurance number and your bank account details.

Phase 1

The first phase will be a one-off payment of £150 for customers that receive one of the following:

  • Council Tax Reduction
  • Council Tax Band Reduction due to a disability for those in Bands F to H (Band E qualified under the mandatory scheme)
  • exemption Class U for severe mental impairment

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2022.

If you do not have access to our online services, we can help you apply by telephone. Please call us on 01462 474595 and press option 3, followed by option 0. This service is only intended to support those who are unable to complete the online process themselves or get assistance from family or friends.

Phase 2

This will launch after 30 September 2022 to allow us to determine the funding that remains available.

Applications and eligibility criteria will be made available nearer the time.
