Avro Energy is not a member of the government’s Warm Home Discount Scheme.
The Warm Home Discount Scheme gives people who are eligible a £140 discount on their electricity bill between October and April. The Warm Home Discount Scheme payment doesn’t affect your annual Winter Fuel Payment or any Cold Weather Payment you might receive.
You are automatically eligible for the scheme if your energy company is a member of the scheme and you get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit. People who are on a low income or get certain means-tested benefits and have their electricity from suppliers who are part of the scheme may also be eligible. If you think you may qualify, you usually need to apply for the payment via your electricity supplier.

The energy industry’s regulator, Ofgem, requires electricity companies to provide information about the mix of fuels they use to generate the electricity they supply to their customers. Electricity companies must also provide information about the environmental impact of their electricity. Both pieces of information must be published annually once an electricity supplier has been trading for 12 months or more. Avro Energy was founded in December 2015, so it has not needed to disclose the information yet. It will make its first formal announcement in 2017.
