In Jan 2013, YES Energy Solutions was successful in procuring three Council backed Green Deal Demonstrator contracts across West Yorkshire.
Scheme In Detail
Area based initiatives were established in key areas of Kirklees, Calderdale and Leeds.
The demonstrators were launched to test the market for Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) by analysing the level of consumer demand, the maturity of the supply chain and the opportunities and issues arising from the Green Deal customer journey.
A total of 1,279 energy saving measures where installed across the three areas.
Hard to treat properties were the focus of each initiative, providing householders with affordable solutions that would help retain heat and reduce domestic fuel bills.
Homeowners and private renting tenants in Kirklees, Leeds and parts of Calderdale were given the opportunity to access energy saving grants and loans for critical home improvements including: insulation, heating and double glazing.
Free technical surveys and occupancy assessments were carried out to determine the level of grant funding available to each resident. Interest free loans were provided where appropriate using the Green Deal golden rule, where repayments never exceeded the money saved on utility bills by implementing energy saving home improvements.
All grant funding was fully allocated by the end of February 2013.
Each Green Deal Demonstrator was uniquely branded to help target eligible householders:
