Councils from across Greater Lincolnshire have joined forces to help people cut their home energy costs.
Launched in June, the Lincs 4 Warmer Homes (L4WH) scheme was set up across Greater Lincolnshire offering home energy efficiency improvements and advice.
As part of this, the partnership is calling for residents to enquire about the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding stream now available.
Improvements available as part of the funding include:
- Loft insulation
- Cavity wall insulation
- Solid wall insulation
- Boiler replacements
- First-time central heating
Councillor John Fenty, cabinet member for Housing at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “We’re proud to be able to support residents with the ECO funding available through the partnership.
“Whilst it is important people have heating systems installed, it is key they have the appropriate insulation to ensure homes can remain warm at a reduced cost.
“I would urge all residents to get in touch with the team to find out what funding streams they could be eligible for.”
Councillor Martin Griggs, Portfolio Holder for Housing and Communities, said: “We are so pleased to be part of this joint partnership and be able to help people cut down their home energy costs. Please make sure you get in touch with the team and see how much you could save each year.”
L4WH is administered by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, for all ten local authorities.
