Oil Boiler Ban Delayed Until 2035

29/09/2023

Last week, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced that the proposed ban on oil boilers will be delayed until 2035 at the earliest.

This is especially good news for those living off the gas-grid in rural locations, who are unable to effectively heat their home any other way.

There was more good news too, as amendments to the Energy Bill were voted through Parliament with cross party support. This paves the way for domestic heating customers to be able to decarbonise their homes in a cost effective manner, by switching to Renewable Liquid Fuels.

Both of these developments mean Barton Petroleum will be able to continue helping customers to heat their homes for years to come, while doing our bit to help the country achieve Net Zero.
