Birmingham Energy Savers can arrange the installation of new boilers, improved heating controls, wall insulation for solid walls or cavity walls, and loft insulation, at no cost for people on certain benefits, and with subsidies and no upfront cost for everyone else. Whether you are a homeowner, tenant or landlord, we can help you. This pilot scheme is for a limited time only and subject to availability.
In Acocks Green, Energywise, a local co-operative of energy professionals is working with organisations, local businesses and neighbourhood groups to promote Birmingham Energy Savers, answer questions, give talks, and register people for the scheme by making referrals to Carillion, who are managing the surveys and installations.
Birmingham Energy Savers operates two initiatives, depending on the circumstances of the householder:
The Green Deal - This is to encourage people to make their home more energy efficient through installing things like an energy efficient boiler, draught proofing, loft and cavity wall insulation. These measures will be fitted into homes at no up front cost to the householder through a loan which is repaid through the electricity bill, at a rate no more than the savings made by having the improvements.
Energy Company Obligation [ECO] - The government has passed legislation which means that energy companies must make available significant funding to help people reduce the amount of energy they consume and help people out of fuel poverty. This money is to help eligible people get new energy efficient boilers, loft, cavity wall and solid wall insulation installed in their home - in some cases completely free of charge.
