The Government has announced this morning that the Alternative Fuel Payment of £200 will be made in February 2023. These payments will be made via electricity suppliers alongside the Electricity Bills Support Scheme Payments. It is likely to be early in the month as the majority of the electricity bill support payments are made early in the month. You do not need to do anything to receive this money.
For those customers without an electricity account and other exceptions, they will be able to apply through a governmental portal in February.
We welcome the extra clarity ahead of Christmas and our advice to customers remains the same which is to purchase their heating oil as usual ahead of cold weather. To get a quote for heating oil visit https://www.cpsfuels.co.uk/get-quote or call 01953 713950
