Struggling with your energy bills? SGN can Help to Heat your home Oct 31, 2019

SGN Help to Heat with YES Energy Solutions

Residents not connected to the gas network in Scotland and the south of England may be eligible for funding towards a gas connection and central heating system from gas distribution network SGN.

SGN’s Help to Heat scheme will provide a gas connection which will be fully funded through the scheme for the majority of eligible residents that live near a supply.

Residents that currently use electric storage heaters, coal or wood burners could save hundreds of pounds per year with a new energy efficient heating system.

Householders who receive certain benefits or have a low household income in relation to their energy bills may qualify for funding.

In addition, if your council has published qualifying criteria as part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, you may be eligible due to individual circumstances such as age or health.

YES Energy Solutions are managing the scheme on behalf of SGN, and will be assessing customers for available funding.

Marie Jones, Fuel Poverty Stakeholder Engagement Manager at SGN, said: “If you’re struggling to stay affordably warm this winter, our Help to Heat scheme may be able to help and we’d urge you to get in touch.

“Through our Help to Heat scheme, we can help residents connect to a more affordable fuel to make their homes warmer and more comfortable.

“For households relying on solid fuel or electric storage heaters, the Help to Heat scheme is a route to cheaper fuel bills from a more efficient heating system.”

Residents who think they may be eligible for the scheme are advised to call our Help to Heat advisors on freephone 0800 015 5174.
