Households who don't pay their bills by debit are going to get the discount as a credit on their account.

Those on repayment meters will have the discount credited to their meter.

The discount will be made up of six instalments, starting from next month.

First it'll be a discount worth £66 which is dropping in October and November.

Then a £67 discount will be provided every month between December and March 2023.

Bulb, E.ON, E.ON Next, Scottish Power, Shell Energy and others have also confirmed how they'll pay their customers.

There is other help available as plenty of energy grants and schemes are now open to assist struggling Brits.

British Gas recently confirmed it'll pay its most vulnerable customers grants worth £750 to help with bills.

There's also a one-off fuel voucher from your energy supplier if you're on a repayment metre.

And if you're in debt, there are plenty of services which can help you manage your financial problems.

Most of them offer free guidance and help in person, over the phone or online.
