Rossendale Affordable Warmth Scheme

Rossendale Affordable Warmth Scheme

Summary

YES Energy Solutions is working with Rossendale Borough Council to deliver their Affordable Warmth Grant to vulnerable residents in the area for the install of energy efficiency measures.

This scheme is now closed, get in touch with how else we may be able to help.

Scheme in Detail

The Affordable Warmth Scheme allowed vulnerable residents in Rossendale to access home heating upgrades and insulation measures to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

Rossendale Council’s Affordable Warmth Grant provided funding for residents eligible for heating and insulation upgrades, which included:

  • Boiler replacements and repairs
  • First time central heating systems
  • Loft insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • New radiators and radiator repairs
  • Gas fire services and repairs
  • Draught proofing measures

Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding was also added to the funding mix to further cover the costs for some residents, meaning residents in certain circumstances could get fully funded installations.

This scheme aimed to help Rossendale residents save money on their fuel bills whilst making their homes warm and cosy.


Our involvement

YES Energy Solutions managed the scheme, handled the customer journey and utilised our network of industry accredited contractors to install measures.

Due to our partnerships with major energy companies, we supplied ECO funding to support Rossendale Council’s Affordable Warmth Grant. We managed the grant alongside additional ECO in this blended approach to funding.


Katie Crossley's story

Single widowed mum of two, Katie Crossley was facing a winter with a completely broken boiler, but help from the Rossendale Affordable Warmth Scheme provided her with a fully funded boiler install.

“My heating had caput and I said to the kids you better wrap this is going to be character building, because I didn’t have the money to put into a new boiler,” said Katie.

“I had tried to get help from funding before but I was told that I earned 38p too much, so the entire cost of the boiler would go straight to me.”

Katie and her sons aged 11 and 16, were referred on to Rossendale Borough Council and YES Energy Solutions.

“I spoke to Michaela and she was straight onto it, she was an absolute star. If I had the money I’d buy some flowers to take to her. I really do feel like she saved my life at the time.”
Katie’s A-rated gas boiler was installed the day before Christmas Eve, and she explained: “I was so pleased that the workmen were there, I couldn’t thank them enough. They were here exactly when they said and they were efficient."
