Broxbourne Borough Council launch scheme with YES Energy Solutions for residents

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.
