Kirklees RE-Charge

RE-Charge

Summary

From 2009 - 2011, YES Energy Solutions was the managing agent for the ground breaking RE-Charge scheme for renewable energy on behalf of Kirklees Council.

The project helped fund the installation of domestic renewable energy technologies such as Solar PV systems and Air Source Heat Pumps, through an innovative second charge on properties.

A £10,000 interest free loan was provided to customers to cover their up-front installation costs. But unlike other finance packages, the loan was only repayable when a homeowner sold their property. In many cases Kirklees residents could access renewable energy systems for free or at highly subsidised rates.

The project sparked an influx of interest in Kirklees and hundreds of householders registered on the scheme. YES Energy Solutions’ in-house installer division fulfilled the final leg of solar PV installations which concluded in the summer of 2011.

The Kirklees RE-Charge scheme was recognised at the regional Microgeneration Awards and won the 'Best Scheme / Policy' award in 2010.
