Energy Saving Trust has been appointed by Ofgem to distribute payments from energy companies who may have breached rules. The funds can pay for anything from making a home more energy efficient, to providing advice that helps consumers keep on top of their bills.
Organisations can apply that support energy customers in England, Scotland and Wales.
Core priority: Supporting energy consumers
The Energy Redress scheme aims to:
- Support energy consumers in vulnerable situations and;
- Deliver benefits to the types of consumers that were negatively impacted by the specific issues that triggered the redress payment.
The amount of funding available through the scheme varies throughout the year and will be reviewed on a quarterly basis in October, January, April and July. Eligible charities that have registered interest in the scheme will be notified when funds become available.
The minimum grant you can apply for is £20,000 and the maximum grant amount varies depending on the size of the fund available.
