Saving on energy bills while at home

Apply if you did not get support automatically with your energy bill

Most households in Scotland have been getting a £400 discount on their energy bills automatically. In some cases, you do not get the discount automatically, for example if you:

  • pay for energy through a landlord, housing manager or site owner
  • live in a park home or off the electricity grid

You can now apply for the discount if you did not get it automatically.

If you use alternative fuel to heat your home

You may be eligible for a £200 Alternative Fuels Payment (AFT) if both the following are true:

  • your household is not connected to the mains gas grid
  • you use alternative fuels as your main source of heating

`This is on top of the £400 from your electricity supplier.

Most householders will get the payment automatically from their supplier.
