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.
