Ford Fuels Heating Oil for Homes

Energy Crisis – £100 Government Support

The government’s recent announcement confirmed that that the mechanism to receive the £100 fixed payment to heating oil users will be made via their electricity bills. It is still not yet clear when it will be paid, with a statement only referring to ‘this winter’. It was also noted that eligible customers that do not have a relationship with an electricity supplier will be supported through an alternative route to make sure they do not miss out. Details of this alternative route will be confirmed by the government shortly.

The government also stated; “The £100 payment has been calculated to ensure that a typical customer using heating oil does not face a higher rate of growth in their heating costs since last winter, in comparison to those using mains gas who are supported by the Energy Price Guarantee.”

As before we recommend that customers do not wait if they need heating oil. Buying early will help you avoid the seasonal rush, securing your fuel as we head into the winter months.
