Broxbourne Borough Council launch scheme with YES for residents to improve the warmth of their homes
Broxbourne Borough Council launch scheme with YES for residents to improve the warmth of their homes Nov 13, 2020
Broxbourne Borough Council are working with YES Energy Solutions to help eligible residents access funding for insulation and brand new A-rated boilers in their homes.
In some cases funding may cover the full costs of the
installs which help qualifying residents in the area improve the energy
efficiency of their homes and reduce their fuel bills to stay warm for less.
The scheme is focussed on helping householders who have high
energy bills in relation to their income by installing loft and cavity wall
insulation and providing energy efficient boiler upgrades.
Residents can qualify for funding through a range of
criteria, which includes receiving means tested benefits or being on a low
household income with high energy bills.
In addition, elderly residents, those with a young family, pregnant
women or residents with a health condition made worse by the cold, could also
qualify for funding.
The scheme is managed by award winning Community Interest
Company YES Energy Solutions on behalf of the council.
YES Energy Solutions are accessing the Government’s Energy
Company Obligation (ECO) scheme to provide the capital for the scheme.
Councillor David Holliday, Cabinet Member for Environment
said: “We are thrilled to be able to support qualifying local residents with
making their homes more energy efficient and less costly, resulting in a warmer
and healthier environment to live in.
“Now more than ever, as the pandemic continues, it is
crucial for qualifying residents to access these home improvements which are
designed to keep households healthy through the cold winter months whilst
reducing their energy bills.”
Installations will be completed through YES Energy
Solutions’ network of accredited local contractors.
Residents who think that they may qualify for the scheme are
advised to call YES Energy Solutions on 01422 880100.
