Developing and delivering the Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding (EBSS AF) is a complex task, and it is critical that the Government gets it right. There are significant complexities in delivering EBSS AF, which is a novel scheme with a wide variety of eligible groups with different energy arrangements. The Government remains committed to delivering for those households, including park home residents, without a direct relationship to a domestic energy supplier as soon as possible, but we need to ensure consumers are protected, and public money is well spent, including robust verification and anti-fraud checks.
