Apply for a Discretionary Energy Rebate Payment

If your household does not get a council tax bill but pays for energy, you could be eligible for a payment of up to £150.

Only one payment will be made per property.

Applications must be submitted by 31 July 2022.

You cannot apply if you or anyone you live with is named on the council tax bill for the property you live in.


You or someone you live with must:

  • not be named on the council tax bill for your property
  • be responsible for paying the energy costs for your property, either by being billed, or paying by pre-payment meter
  • have been resident at the property on 1 April 2022
  • have been resident in Sheffield on 1 April 2022

How much you could get

The Council has a limited fund to provide the discretionary energy rebate payment. Once the scheme has closed, and we have assessed all applications we will divide the amount between successful applicants, and you will receive a payment of up to £150.

If you are eligible, you will receive your payment by the end of August 2022.

Exclusions - who can’t apply 

  • people who are named on their council tax bill
  • people who live with someone named on the council tax bill
  • people who live with someone who has already received a discretionary energy rebate payment
  • landlords for properties where the landlord is responsible for the energy bill
  • people who have already received a Council Tax Energy Rebate Payment
