Help to Heat Gas Connections

SGN Help to Heat Gas ConnectionsFunding for Gas Connections in Scotland & the South East

YES Energy Solutions is working in partnership with the gas network operator – SGN to help eligible residents connect to mains gas for little or no cost.

If your home is close to a gas supply and you live in Scotland or the South East of England, then you might be entitled to a free or discounted gas connection through the SGN Help to Heat Scheme.

We can claim funding to cover or contribute towards connection costs for residents that meet the Help to Heat criteria (see details below).

Did you know that compared to electric, coal or LPG, mains gas is still one of the most cost effective domestic fuels.

Connecting homes to main gas

The SGN Help to Heat scheme provides funding to help eligible householders in Scotland and the South East of England connect to the mains gas network.

For the majority of eligible residents that live near to a gas supply, a connection will be fully funded through the scheme.

YES Energy Solutions have been appointed by SGN to check to see which residents are eligible for support. We will discuss the funding available, review your circumstances and collect evidence that proves you qualify for a grant under the scheme.
