Tackling Fuel Poverty
We’ve helped over 1,440 households across the Leeds City Region lower their energy bills and heat their homes more efficiently through our Growth Deal-funded Tackling Fuel Poverty Programme
We’re helped 1,446 households across the Leeds City Region lower their energy bills and heat their homes more efficiently through our Growth Deal-funded Tackling Fuel Poverty programme.
In partnership with the LEP, we’ve invested £5.7 million into the scheme to improve insulation and heating in homes in Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.
Over the next 42 years, it is estimated that households under the scheme will save almost £13.2 million combined in heating bills or almost £222 per household, per year on average.
In addition to money and carbon savings have been calculated for a reduction of 41,749 tonnes over the lifetime of the measures; the equivalent of taking almost 22,000 cars off the roads. 228 jobs and 8 apprenticeships within the local supply chain have also been supported.
The Tackling Fuel Poverty Programme and related projects are delivered through Better Homes Yorkshire, the only Council backed energy efficiency and heating provider in the Leeds City Region.
