Alternative Fuel Payment if you heat your house in Mepal with Oil – update

Mepal households will  get a £200 Alternative Fuels Payment (AFP) if they use alternative fuels for most of their heating, such as liquid petroleum gas (LPG), oil or solid fuel. Because Mepal is now connected to the gas mains the automatic payments will not be made through your electricity supplier. Details of the scheme can be found online here.

You will need:

  • an email address or phone number (if you have one)
  • your bank account details
  • proof that you’ve spent £200 on alternative fuels to heat your home since June 2022 (for example, a delivery note or receipt)
  • This window has recently been extended back to June 2022 to ensure that households who purchased fuel in bulk ahead of the winter are able to receive the £200 energy bill support they are entitled to.

If you’re not registered for Council Tax

You’ll need to upload proof of address (such as a full, current UK driving licence or tenancy agreement) as part of your application.

If you have difficulty applying

If you would like assistance in making the application, please contact the Parish Council and one of the Councillors can assist in the process.
