YES Energy Solutions specialise in helping Local Authorities reduce CO2 and tackle fuel poverty.
As a Community Interest Company, we like to think of ourselves as the bridge between the public and private sector.
Not only do we design and deliver Council backed energy efficiency projects, but also work with Energy Companies to draw down funding to support the work.
We’re a company with a social purpose. Rather than generating profit for shareholders, we reinvest the money we make into the communities we support. Everything we do centres on reducing CO2 and alleviating fuel poverty.
Together we can implement effective energy saving schemes that will support whole communities and improve quality of life for thousands of residents.
Flexible eligibility, or LA Flex, allows certain residents in addition to those receiving state benefits to qualify for the Energy Company Obligation scheme.
Find out more about how to encorporate LA Flex into your energy efficiency policies.

Speaking From Experience
YES Energy Solutions have managed some of the largest Council backed energy saving schemes in the UK. These include:
Wrap Up Leeds & Wrap Up Leeds Plus (Leeds City Council)
Insulate Hampshire (Hampshire County Council & Partners)
As a Green Deal Provider, we have established effective bilateral agreements with major Energy Companies and work closely with them to achieve their carbon reduction obligations. We can use funding sources from programmes like the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to support a whole range of Local Authority schemes.
In some cases we can work with Energy Companies to provide specific funding sources for area based initiatives that provide better subsidy rates and additional support for householders.
For Green Deal Approved Installers using our national SME installer network, YES Energy Solutions can source industry approved contractors that are local to your area. Not only can we offer your constituents a localised service, but boost the local economy in the process!
All of our installer partners are approved Green Deal installers and wherever we can, we will always select companies that are based within the Local Authority areas we’re working in.
YES Energy Solutions is a Community Interest Company committed to fighting Climate Change and offering real solutions to fuel poverty.
As an asset locked organisation, we invest our profits back into our objectives for the good of the community.
With no shareholders to satisfy, we use the capital we generate to offer critical energy saving solutions for UK communities, as well as a range of support to help vulnerable householders keep on top of their energy bills.
Local Authority Testimonials
"Wrap Up Leeds has been incredibly well received by the people of Leeds and the job creation, affordable warmth and income maximisation benefits are clear for all to see. Plus, the data collected has given us a clear understanding of the future energy efficiency needs of our residents. We have established an effective working relationship with YES and their subsidiaries which we’re already building on with Wrap Up Leeds+, our new Green Deal demonstrator programme." George Munson - Energy and Climate Change Manager, Leeds City Council

YES have a positive and committed approach to good customer service which is paramount when working with partners." Kay Beagley - Programme Manager, Kirklees Council
