NO Gas meter point number BUT NO Alternative Fuel Payment
Our village is on the gas grid but households not connected are still using oil fired radiator central heating as we are and we supplement this with a kiln dried log burning stove also feeding the radiator central heating.
EoN Next didn't credit the £200 AFP and refused to accept any enquiries until after the end of February 2023. The AFP payment claim website tells us if we haven't received the AFP payment in February to contact our electricity supplier EoN Next. So, having done so we are told "If you pay for electricity directly to a supplier, you should get this payment automatically from your electricity supplier in February 2023. We're checking whether this will be paid as a bill credit or as a payment into your bank account." This quote was made on 3 March but no payment or credit was made in February.
So, looking at the AFP claim form it tells us we are eligible to claim. BUT have to provide receipts dated September 2022 or later. We bought 7 cubic metres of kiln dried logs in March 2022 when prices were low and topped up our oil tank out of season also and store both fuels ready for September when our heating is needed. Still waiting to hear back from EoN Next. But this looks like we're going to be denied the AFP by EoN as they'll probably say we weren't on the list and denied the AFP by the Council because we don't buy fuel after the start of the heating season we buy in advance at lower prices and store both fuels. A case of 'Money Saving' not in our best interest when the Government decide the rules.
