Month of positivity for YES Energy Solutions after lockdown
Month of positivity for YES Energy Solutions after lockdown Aug 27, 2020
YES Energy Solutions emerged
positively from the coronavirus lockdown to pursue our mission to alleviate
fuel poverty and reduce CO2 emissions.
With many of our staff returning from a period of furlough,
we re-launched our schemes with local authority partners, and have agreed exciting
new projects for the road ahead.
The St Alban’s Warmer Homes Scheme is set to launch in the
next few weeks, with YES providing our ECO funding facilities and contractor
network to help residents in the area receive help towards energy saving home improvements.
Many more Hertfordshire councils have also signed up with us
for similar ECO schemes meaning household energy efficiency in the area is set
We are also moving forward with our Warm Homes Fund schemes
in Hertfordshire, Reading and North Yorkshire, managing the funding and installs
of first-time central heating systems for fuel poor residents.
Additional funding for first-time central heating is under
our management in the South of England as a result of our partnership with SGN.
The new Green Homes Grant also piqued our interest, and we
have been forthcoming in seeking out the new opportunity presented by this new government
Our ECO delivery is ahead of targets, with contracts being
fulfilled and partnerships with installers reigniting after lockdown.
The team is supporting installers with delivery, with all
usual lines of communication open.
To ensure activity could ramp up swiftly, drastic
alterations to the office were made to create a Covid-secure workplace.
With Perspex screens between desks, a one-way system and new
hand washing stations amongst a range of improvements, staff have returned to
the office with confidence.
The challenges for the industry over the last few months
cannot be overstated, with many organisations being rocked and in a state of
confusion, however YES Energy Solutions’ robust processes and forward planning
has enabled the company to emerge from lockdown in a position of strength.
We have overcome one the most threatening challenges in our
history, but our capacity as a funding provider, project manager and industry leader
has weathered the storm.
