Your Energy Sussex Affordable Warmth scheme now available

The Your Energy Sussex Affordable Warmth boiler replacement and insulation scheme for low income households is now open to new referrals. The scheme, which is funded by the Government’s Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) and your Energy Sussex (the WSCC-backed energy saving partnership), provides qualifying households with financial support to pay for a new, energy efficient boiler or insulation.

In the first instance, clients should check the eligibility criteria on the Your Energy Sussex website and then call their delivery partner, 1 Green Place, free of charge on 0800 0355608. Their call handlers will ask some simple questions to understand whether the caller is eligible for the scheme. If they meet the eligibility criteria, they will indicate the level of funding available and explain the next steps. I Green Place works with a network of Sussex-based, accredited installers and provide weekly progress reports to the Your Energy Sussex team, so you can have confidence that the scheme is well run.

Please be aware that the ECO funding does no meet the full cost of installation and clients may be asked to make a contribution towards the work.

If you have any questions about the scheme, please contact Tom Coates in the Your Energy Sussex team on 0330 2226458 or email tom.coates@westsussex.gov.uk
