Chris Seeks Clarity On How All Energy Users Can Get Government Support
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the statement by the Minister for Energy and Climate of 25 January 2023, Col 1026, what the eligibility criteria for energy support will be for households without a relationship to a domestic supplier; and what steps he is taking to communicate the criteria with relevant households.
Graham Stuart Minister of State (Minister for Climate)
The GOV.UK page in February 2023 will include an overview of eligibility for the Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding. This is likely to include care home residents, residents of park homes, tenants in certain private and social rented homes, residents of caravans and houseboats on registered sites, farmers living in domestic farmhouses, and off-grid households. The Government will announce when the new scheme is live and will work closely with stakeholder groups and representative bodies to give them an update on progress, ensuring eligible households are made fully aware of the scheme and encouraged to apply.
