Please see the latest statement released by the UK & Ireland Fuel Distributors Association below:
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.”
Demand is currently higher due to the colder weather and, as usual this time of year, all hands are on deck in the lead up to Christmas! Please remember to check your tank level regularly so our team can help keep you warm over the festive period.
