Affordable Warmth Solutions: Warm Homes Fund
Part of the national £150 million Warm Homes Fund established by National Grid and administered by community interest company, Affordable Warmth Solutions, on behalf of National Grid.
East Sussex County Council received funding to provide 100 first-time central heating systems in urban homes and communities. The project was delivered through the East Sussex Warm Home Check service, with new gas connections undertaken by gas Distribution Network Operator (funded through the Fuel Poor Network Extension Scheme).
As part of this project the Warm Home Check service was able to retrofit large detached 1960s built five-storey (including ground floor) property in St Leonard’s on Sea. The house contains 40 separate bedsit apartments (flats).
The Warm Home Check service installed first-time gas central heating* and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funded cavity wall and loft insulation for a #? households. Which significantly reduced energy costs for the tenants.
