As you may be aware National Grid are currently operating an Affordable Warmth scheme to provide eligible customers with a voucher towards the cost of their new gas supply. The qualifying criteria is pre-determined and set by Ofgem (Office of Gas and Electricity Markets):
What is the qualifying criteria?
- You live in one of the top 20% most deprived areas in National Grid’s gas network area; or
- Spend more than 10% of your disposable income to heat your property to an adequate level of warmth; or
- Are in receipt of certain income related benefits; or
- Are aged 70 years or over
The on-line application process uses your job address postcode to automatically apply the voucher to the cost of your quotation where you live within one of the top 20% most deprived areas. In most cases the voucher will cover the full cost of providing you with a new gas service. Proceed with your online application
If you believe you qualify under any of the other qualifying criteria, please contact Affordable Warmth Solutions (details below).
