We are aware that the Government has announced two new schemes which will be available from February 2023, for those households who are not entitled to the £400 discount via the Energy Support Scheme.
All applications will need to be made directly to central government via the GOV.UK links below, and not to Conwy County Borough Council.
If you cannot apply online or need help with your application, contact the Government's helpline team:
Telephone: 0808 175 3287 , Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm
Energy Bill Support Scheme Alternative Funding
This scheme is intended to provide the £400 of support for households across the UK that would otherwise miss out on the Energy Bill Support Scheme, as they do not have a domestic electricity contract.
Applications are open now via GOV.UK.
If you are eligible for the payment, your payment details will be shared with Conwy County Borough Council, to verify your home address and make the payment.
Alternative Fuel Payments
This scheme is intended to deliver a one-off payment of £200 to UK households who are not on the mains gas grid and therefore use alternative fuels, such as heating oil, to heat their homes.
The government will be opening the scheme for applications from early March 2023 via GOV.UK.
If you are eligible for the payment, your payment details will be shared with Conwy County Borough Council to verify your home address and make the payment.
