The Government has now announced their plans to help households with their energy payments this Winter - here are the details - hover over each image to find out more:
If you pay your Bill by Direct Debit
If you pay your energy Bill by Direct Debit, either monthly or quarterly, you will see an automatic discount of £66 in October and November and £67 per month from December to March 2023
If you have a "Smart" pre-payment device
You will see an automatic monthly top-up added to your Account, so you won't need to add as much credit to your meter.
If you have an older "non-Smart" pre-payment device
You won't get this automatically - instead, you'll receive a discount voucher in the first week of each month. This can be either via text, email or through the post - so do remember to check your post. You will have to redeem these in person by going to your usual top-up point, such as the Post Office.
Soaring energy Bills?
With current energy price increases set on a trajectory to the Moon at the moment, any help to mitigate costs is welcomed. BCP Council has appointed Ridgewater Energy as the new delivery partner for Healthy Homes Dorset to provide help to anyone who qualifies for assistance.
