YES Energy Solutions is working in partnership with Derby City Council to provide funding towards heating system upgrades and insulation installs to residents in the area.
Scheme in detail
The scheme aims to improve the energy efficiency of Derby homes to help qualifying residents keep warmer and save money on their energy bills.
Measures in the scheme may be fully funded in some cases by the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme.
The following measures are available for eligible customers:
First time central heating systems
Cavity wall insulation
Under floor insulation
Room in roof insulation
External wall insulation
Safety is our main priority and the scheme is following the latest government guidelines in regards to coronavirus safety. Our friendly customer advisors can explain the procedures our installers have put in place to ensure safety of residents and staff.
On behalf of Derby City Council, YES Energy Solutions are project managing the scheme, recruiting eligible customers and managing installs via our network of industry accredited contractors.
We are also securing ECO funding to inject into the scheme which is obtained through our contracts with major energy companies.
