One alternative Green Star Energy suggests if you are struggling with your energy bills is a pre-payment meter. Pre-payment meters let you pay for your electricity and gas upfront. The system is similar to a pay-as-you-go mobile phone. Pre-payment meters help you to pay back money you owe as well as stop you falling behind again. Green Star Energy pre-payment meter customers buy credit at their local Post Office, PayPoint or PayZone.
As well as providing solutions to help you if you are struggling to pay your energy bills, Green Star Energy also publishes simple tips that can help you reduce the amount of energy you use in your home and therefore reduce your energy bills.
Green Star Energy recommends the following measures:
The government’s Warm Home Discount Scheme gives eligible people 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 part of the scheme and you get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit. You may be eligible if your energy company is part of the scheme and you are on a low income or you get certain means-tested benefits.
For more information on the Warm Home Discount Scheme you can visit www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme/
Green Star Energy is not part of the Warm Home Discount scheme so its customers are not eligible for the discount.
