Warm Home Discount Scotland

Closes 22 May 2022

Opened 9 May 2022

Overview

This consultation sets out proposals for implementing the Warm Home Discount scheme in Scotland from 2022 to winter 2025/26.

The proposals in this document would mean that the WHD Scotland will largely mirror the WHD in place across GB in 2021/22.  The primary difference would be that non-core spending would be larger due to the increase in overall spending. The value of the rebate would increase to £150 as per the England and Wales scheme and the supplier participation thresholds would be lowered so that more energy suppliers participate in the scheme, particularly from 2023/24 onwards, mirroring how the scheme operates in England and Wales.

The WHD Scotland will run alongside the expanded and reformed WHD for England and Wales, the details of which are set out in the Government response to consultation, published on 1 April.
