Get ready for winter with a grant to improve your home

Ryedale District Council is offering grants to eligible residents to improve their home with A-rated heating and insulation installs this winter.

The Ryedale Energy Saver is available in the backdrop of cold weather fast approaching plus a rise in energy bills as a result of the price cap increase and energy suppliers going bust.

The council is urging residents to apply to the scheme to improve their energy efficiency at home to keep warm without experiencing high costs.

Offering grants for efficient boiler upgrades, cavity wall insulation and loft insulation to qualifying homeowners and private renting tenants, the scheme aims to help residents reduce their energy bills.

In many cases, the grants may cover the full cost of the improvements, helping residents save money in the long term without incurring upfront costs.

Residents who receive certain benefits are likely to qualify for the scheme.

Plus, households with an annual income of under £30,000 may also be able to receive support if anyone living in the property is elderly, a pregnant woman, a young child or has health conditions that are made worse by the cold.

The scheme is being managed by award winning Community Interest Company YES Energy Solutions on behalf of Ryedale District Council.

Funding is sourced from the Government’s Energy Company Obligation scheme, with additional financial support offered by the council for certain residents.  

Installs are completed by YES Energy Solutions’ network of industry accredited contractors.

Phillip Spurr, Programme Director for Place and Resources at Ryedale District Council, said: “The Ryedale Energy Saver is an opportunity for residents to improve their home to reduce their energy bills and save money.

“We are encouraging residents to take up the offer to stay warm this winter in a healthy efficient home.

“By taking part in the scheme, residents will also contribute to our efforts to reduce carbon emissions throughout the district.”

Notes to editor

The scheme by Ryedale District Council is managed by YES Energy Solutions and aims to help low income households that suffer from fuel poverty caused by inefficient housing and high energy bills.

Through contracts with energy companies, YES Energy Solutions access the Energy Company Obligation to fund the retrofit measures in the scheme.

Ryedale District Council is providing top up funding, meaning that in many cases the installs will be fully funded. However, this is at the discretion of the council and not guaranteed.
