The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme that gives extra help to people struggling with their energy bills. We can help customers who are part of the ‘Core Group’ which is anyone who currently receives the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit. If you do you could qualify for a one-off discount of £140 on your electricity bill, usually made between October and March. This doesn’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.
Yes, Robin Hood Energy are part of the Warm Home Discount Scheme for the Core Group. This scheme is only mandatory for energy suppliers to offer once they reach a customer base of 250,000.
As it is our mission to eradicate fuel poverty, we have opted into the scheme voluntarily before reaching the 250,000 threshold.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will contact you in the autumn if you’re eligible for the Warm Home Discount under the Core Group. At that point, you will receive the rebate automatically.
We will begin to issue the rebates between December and March.
The way that eligible customers will receive their rebate will depend on their payment method:
If you wish, you could split your rebate across your gas and electricity account or entirely on your gas.
