Energy rebate scheme

Council Tax rebate to help with increased home energy costs

The government has provided a support package to help households with the increase in energy costs. These measures include a one-off £150 non-repayable rebate for households in England in council tax bands A – D, known as the Council Tax Rebate. 

A £150 payment to all eligible households in the Harborough district who pay council tax by direct debit has been made.

Claim your £150 energy rebate

Residents with a council tax banding of A to D who don’t pay council tax by direct debit are reminded to claim their £150 energy rebate if they haven’t done so. Post Office vouchers for the £150 energy rebate, that were issued by post in June 2022, have now expired.

To claim your £150 please:

  • call 01858 828282 and select the energy rebate option
  • or email before Friday 23 September 2022 to ensure that your payment is processed well before the closure date of 30 September 2022.

Council Tax rebate scams

If someone contacts you saying they’re from the council and asks you to provide your bank details, put the phone down immediately, it’s a scam. The council will never contact you to ask for your bank details by phone, email, or text.
