Discretionary Energy Rebate Payment

Who can get this rebate?

Discretionary Scheme Part 1

In addition to the support under the government scheme to pay £150 to people whose main residence is in a band A to D property (or living in a band E property and entitled to a disabled band reduction) the council will also pay £150 to people who meet the following criteria:

  1. Households living in Band E-H properties in receipt of Local Council Tax Support
  2. Households living in Band E-H properties who have a reduction in their Council Tax due to a person living in the property being disabled or providing care

In addition to the above criteria, the following conditions must also be met:

  • There will only be one payment per household; payments will not be split if there is shared liability to pay council tax
  • The applicant must have been resident / liable for council Tax on the 1 April 2022 at the property being claimed for
  • You cannot claim if you have previously received a payment under an energy Rebate scheme
  • Empty properties and second homes are excluded from receiving a payment under this scheme.

Additional schemes

£150 to:

  • Households living in Band E-H properties claiming a means-tested benefit
  • Households living in Band A-D properties who became resident between 1st April and 30th June 2022 

A reduced amount of £75 to:

  • Households living in shared accommodation who have their own liability to pay to pay their fuel direct to an energy company i.e. it is not included in the rent.  (The amount is reduced in recognition of a smaller living space and to ensure that a property does not receive a disproportionate amount compared to other households)

APPLICATIONS FOR ALL DISCRETIONARY SCHEMES ARE NOW CLOSED
