Richmondshire District Council

Council tax energy rebate 

The Government announced a £150 Utility Energy Rebate for most households in council tax Bands A-D who were liable for council tax on 1 April 2022. This was to help with the rising costs of energy bills.

We have paid out £2.1 million to over 14,500 eligible Richmondshire households. This council tax energy rebate scheme closed on 30 September 2022.


I did not qualify for the £150. Can I still get help?

The Government has provided funding to the Council to provide a discretionary rebate scheme. This funding is to provide support to vulnerable households who did not qualify for the £150 council tax rebate and are suffering hardship due to the rising cost of living. This includes people on low incomes in council tax bands E to H.

Visit our discretionary energy rebate scheme page for further details.


Where can I find out more information?

There is more information about the £150 Utility Energy Rebate, and other ways the Government is helping with rising energy costs, on the GOV.UK website.
