Green Home Systems appointed as Lanarkshire ECO Flex partners

Lanarkshire council partners with green home systems

Green Home Systems has been appointed to deliver energy saving measures to residents across both North and South Lanarkshire Council areas as part of a national fuel poverty scheme.

The appointment will bring Green Home Systems into partnership with both local authority areas to deliver energy efficiency measures to residents in privately owned or privately rented housing. The scheme allows residents to access free and low-cost energy efficiency measures such as insulation, renewable heating and solar panels. Green Home Systems will lead the partnership by identifying applicants, allocate funding, and then deliver the projects.

ECO4 is the current version of the Energy Company Obligation, the UK Government’s flagship energy efficiency programme that aims to tackle fuel poverty and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from homes throughout the UK by providing free or heavily subsidised energy efficient home improvements. The guidelines permit each local authority to develop its own eligibility criteria for applicants called “ECO Flex”. This means that councils can assist fuel poor residents by developing bespoke eligibility routes that best serve the local population.

Green Home Systems has considerable experience delivering ECO energy saving measures to households across Scotland. It is an accredited energy efficiency specialist holding multiple industry qualifications and provides a wide range of energy efficiency services including thermal insulation, smart heating systems, renewable energy technologies and electric vehicle charge points. Established in 2014, the company has completed over 16,500 energy efficiency projects, lifted over 7,000 families out of fuel poverty and prevented more than 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.

 

Graeme Kerr, Sales Director at Green Home Systems, said:

“We are really excited to announce this partnership with North and South Lanarkshire Councils, and this appointment will allow Green Home Systems to deliver energy efficiency upgrades to fuel poor households throughout the area.”
