0% Bulk-Buy Fuel Loan Scheme From Somerset Councils

Spread the cost of heating your home this winter

If you are one of the UK’s 1.3 million+ households which have a heating oil tank, or you have another off-gas heating system, you may be interested in the bulk-buy fuel scheme funded by Somerset Councils.

The scheme offers an interest-free loan (Representative 0% APR) over six months and is delivered by not-for-profit lender Wessex Resolutions CIC.  The loan enables eligible applicants to spread the cost of bulk-buying home fuel over a number of months, rather than paying out a large sum in one go.

To apply you must be either a homeowner or private tenant living in Somerset and rely on either oil, wood, Calor Gas or coal as your main source of home heating.

Loans have a fixed interest rate and representative 0% APR and are subject to status. Missing future payments could affect your credit rating and ability to obtain credit in the future.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  The office is open 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
