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.”

Cllr David Rose, cabinet member for environment at North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“It is brilliant to be part of this energy efficiency partnership with the Greater Lincolnshire authorities. By working together we can ensure that residents have access to the best funding and advice to carry out energy efficiency improvements on their home.

“There are a range of funding streams available for households, which will not only reduce their carbon footprint but save them money on their energy bills.

“I would encourage anyone who could benefit from this funding to get in touch and find out more information.”

L4WH is administered by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, for all ten local authorities.
