Residents who have not yet applied for their energy bill rebate are advised to apply on or before Sunday 31 July to guarantee payment directly into their bank account. You may receive your rebate via alternative payment methods if you submit your application after this date.
To date, 89% of eligible households have received their energy bill rebates from Solihull Council.

We have been receiving a lot of queries about the extra support measures recently announced by the government to help with the cost of living crisis and rising energy bills.
Please be aware that Solihull Council is not involved in delivering these payments to residents. They will be handled by your energy providers and the Department for Work and Pensions.
As a result, our rebate and customer service teams are unable to assist residents with any questions or issues related to the following:
- The £400 reduction on energy bills over six months from October 2022. This replaces the £200 energy bill reduction announced in February and does not need to be paid back.
- The one-off £650 payment for households receiving means-tested benefits.
- The one-off £300 payment for pensioner households receiving the Winter Fuel Payment.
- The one-off £150 payment for households receiving non-means tested disability benefits.
