This is being launched by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The scheme is for households who do not have a direct contract with an energy supplier, paying for electricity as part of their rent and so will not receive support through the main energy supplier led Energy Bill Support Scheme (EBSS). Those eligible could be park home residents and care home residents for example, if they pay towards electricity as a charge in their rent and meet all the eligibility criteria.
An eligibility checker and application form will be hosted online at GOV.UK in January 2023.
GOV.UK will also advertise a helpline for advice and to provide digital support.
We are yet to receive guidance on this scheme, this is expected in January 2023. This page will be updated as soon as we know more.
Please refer to GOV.UK for updates and further information.
