UKIFDA is aware that a Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy minister has confirmed to MPs that the Domestic Alternative Fuel Payment of £200 will be made in the New Year. The payment mechanism for most customers continues to be through their electricity bills with additional information expected shortly.
This extra clarity is important as it means customers can plan their budgets accordingly. We continue to strongly advise customers to purchase their heating oil as usual ahead of cold weather. The best and most economical approach is to talk to local distributors on a regular basis and not leave purchases to the last minute.
