Online portal launched for £200 Alternative Fuel Payment


Rebecca Palmer


If you use an alternative fuel as your main heating source, you are entitled to an alternative fuel payment of £200. This includes alternatives such as heating oil, LPG, coal or biomass.

If you do not have a relationship with an electricity supplier, you must apply to receive the payment.

You can do this via the government portal here:

For applicants, without online access, the contact centre helpline number is 0808 1753943.

The helpline is open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday, and a representative will guide applicants through the process.

Don’t miss out on the help available. The portal will be open until 31st May 2023.
