The second instalment of the £400 Energy Bills Support Scheme will be discounted from your energy bills this week.
Most will see this as a £66 credit on their energy account. For those who are on a traditional prepayment meter, you will receive vouchers again just as you did last month. These are generally sent by text or post depending on your energy provider, some are an automatic credit when you use your key to top up.
You can find all the information about the scheme online at the below link
This support will continue monthly, throughout winter to help everyone with the high cost of wholesale energy prices.
