Energy bills: how British Gas, EDF, SSE and more will pay a £400 rebateABBO News

- Advertisment -

Households across the country will receive £400 in government support to help with rising energy costs.

The money, which is part of the Support Plan for the Energy Law announced in May this year, will arrive in six installments over six months to some 29 million households.

Households will not receive a lump sum payment, but instead will have £66 deducted from their energy bills in October and November, and £67 between December and March, the government said.

This is how each energy company will pay the £400.

british gas

British Gas, the country’s largest energy provider, is asking customers paying by direct debit to pay as normal.

Customers will then receive the discount as payments directly to their bank account, spread out over the course of six months.


Bulb customers will see their direct debit amounts reduced for the next six months to apply the £400 discount.

Customers with prepaid meters will see £400 credited to their electricity account.


EDF customers will receive their £400 in the same way as British Gas customers.

Those who pay by direct debit should continue to pay normally and will then see the monthly payments made directly to their bank account.

Customers who do not pay by direct debit will see the rebate paid automatically to their energy account in the first week of each month.

SSE and Ovo Energy

SSE and Ovo Energy will pay the £400 discount into customers’ bank accounts in monthly installments.

Payments will be made immediately after a direct debit payment is made.

Those with prepaid meters will see discounts credited to their meter.

scottish power

Scottish Power customers’ bills will not change for the next six months, but payments will be made directly into your bank account after payments.

E.ON and E.ON Next

Direct debit customers who have a fixed energy rate will see the £400 deducted from their monthly payments.

If your bill is less than £66 or £67 per month, your bills will be reduced to £0 and money will be added to your account as a credit.

Variable rate customers will see the rebate added as a credit at the end of each month.


The six payments will be added to your Utilita account as a credit over the next six months, which means your bill goes down.

Customers with smart prepaid meters will be credited automatically, while those with traditional prepaid meters will receive payments as coupons.

shell energy

Direct debit customers will see the energy discount deducted from their bills each month before their direct debit is taken.

Those who do not pay by direct debit will also see their bill reduced each month, while smart prepaid customers will receive the money paid at their meter.

utility warehouse

Utility Warehouse will pay the energy rebate to its customers in the same manner as Shell Energy.

Direct debit bills will be adjusted each month before payment is made, so your bills will be reduced by £66 or £67 each month.
