Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding

Published on Tuesday, 20th December 2022

£200 payment for households that use alternative fuels like heating oil.

The government has recently announced it is also providing a further £200 Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP) to help those households in Great Britain who use alternative fuels such as biomass or heating oil to meet energy costs this winter.

Those households who will need to apply for the AFP, for example because they do not have a relationship with an electricity supplier, will be able to do so in February, through the same GOV.UK portal as the one that will be used to apply for support under the EBSS Alternative Funding scheme.
