Households who are connected to the electricity network but who use fuels other than gas, such as heating oil, to heat their homes will still receive support through the Energy Price Guarantee for their electricity costs, as well as the £400 Energy Bills Support Scheme.

Where households are not able to receive support for their heating costs through the Energy Price Guarantee, the Government will provide an additional payment of £100 to compensate for the rising costs of other fuels such as heating oil, where despite significant increases, prices have risen at a lower rate than wholesale natural gas.
