SGN Help to Heat

SGN Help to Heat


YES Energy Solutions are working in partnership with the gas distribution network SGN to help residents connect to mains gas and receive first-time central heating for little or no cost.

Scheme in detail

SGN’s Help to Heat scheme provides funding to help householders in Scotland and southern England who are not currently on the mains gas network.

For the majority of eligible residents that live near to a gas supply, a connection will be fully funded through the scheme.

Typically, gas is a cheaper fuel source than electricity and will help you live in a warmer, cosier home.

For example, if you currently use electric storage heaters or solid fuel to heat your home, you could save hundreds of pounds each year with a new energy efficient heating system.

You may qualify for funding towards a gas connection and first-time central heating from the Help to Heat scheme if you live in Scotland or certain areas of Southern England and:

  • You receive certain income-related benefits, or
  • You have a low household income (after rent/mortgage costs) in relation to the cost required to adequately heat your home, or
  • You qualify under your local authority's own eligibility criteria, known as a 'Statement of Intent' (find out if your council has additional qualifying criteria)

The shaded area on the map below shows the areas of Southern England covered by the scheme.
