Delivering a £12 rebate to domestic electricity customers.
The Government Electricity Rebate (GER) was a £12 government contribution to help lower the impacts of Government environmental and social policy costs on consumer energy bills. It was part of a wider package of measures to reduce household energy bills by an average of around £50 per year in 2014 and 2015.
The scheme was a two year scheme and ran in 2014 and 2015 only and will not run from 2016 onwards.
