Energy bill support (for those using alternative fuels for heating)

Alternative Fuel Payment alternative funding

Funded by the UK Government, a new scheme launched on Monday 6 March 2023 aimed at providing financial support of £200 to eligible households.

You may be eligible to apply if you can confirm the following:

  • your home is not connected to the mains gas grid
  • you use alternative fuels as your main form of heating, for example:
    • tank or bottled gas
    • liquid petroleum gas (LPG)
    • oil
    • wood
    • solid fuel

Most eligible homes will have received an automatic payment to their electricity bills from February 2023 under this scheme.

If you have not already received this payment into your electricity account, you can find full information on who qualifies and how to apply by visiting the UK government website.

If you apply for this scheme, our Privacy Statement will show you how we use your information.

You may also be eligible for further energy bill support. More information can be found on our Energy bill support Alternative Funding page.
