The Warm Home Discount scheme is established in regulations until March 2016. This is a major scheme that costs more than £300 million per year and reaches some 2 million households per year. In order to be delivered successfully, the scheme requires simple and clear rules. These include a basic requirement for customers to be named on an electricity account held with a participating supplier.
