ECO developments prompt scheme expansion
Our Home Energy Upgrade can now offer insulation to all
20 February 2014
The Energy Company Obligation is changing. From April, the part of the funding which covered insulation for solid walls and hard-to-treat cavities (CERO) will also include funding for simpler measures like loft and cavity wall insulation. Previously, energy supplier funding for these measures had only been available to low income householders, but now it will be available across the board.
We've been monitoring the situation, and we've lined up an extension to our Home Energy Upgrade insulation scheme to help people on our patch take advantage of these changes.
Working with Domestic and General Insulation Ltd., we can offer cavity wall insulation to any householder in Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, Taunton Deane, Mendip, North Somerset, West Somerset, South Somerset, Sedgemoor, South Gloucestershire and Devon for a standard price of £49 or £99 (depending on their circumstances), with the remainder provided by ECO funding. They can get loft insulation installed too for another £99, or just have loft insulation fitted on its own for £11 per square meter. All these prices are subject to survey and available funding.
A Green Deal Advice Report will be completed by Domestic and General Insulation at no cost to the customer.
As these changes to ECO develop, we'll keep monitoring the situation to make sure this offer is still a competitive one. With cavity wall and loft insulation usually costing about £500 each, we hope this offer will inspire lots of west country residents to take action and stay warmer at home for less.
