Warm Home Discount traps low-income households on worse energy deals

Post by Admin on Wed Apr 25, 2018 9:59 am

The £140 Warm Home Discount introduced to help people in fuel poverty can actually trap some low-income households in bad energy deals and must be overhauled, a new report says.

The Social Market Foundation think-tank found that the Warm Home Discount (WHD) can be responsible for discouraging some low-income customers from switching energy suppliers, increasing the risk that they pay a “poverty premium” or face losing the discount.
