UK boiler scrappage scheme hits goal

UK boiler scrappage scheme hits goal
The UK government's boiler scrappage scheme, which was launched in January, has achieved its target of offering 250,000 vouchers for homes to replace their boiler.

Now, there will be no more applications accepted for a voucher, although some energy suppliers have taken up their own promotional scheme.

People who had opted to change their system for a modern "A-rated" boiler or a renewable heating system were provided with a £400 rebate on the cost of the installation.

The average cost of a new boiler is £2,500, but energy and climate change minister Lord Hunt said that it would save up to £200 a year in fuel bills and reduces carbon emissions.

It cost the government £50 million to fund the scheme.

Lord Hunt commented: "The scheme's been a great success and is already helping people cut down on their fuel bills."

"[It] has also provided a much needed boost to England's plumbers and boiler manufacturers, helping to sustain work for the 130,000 installers and up to 25 UK-based boiler manufacturers throughout the economic recovery," he added.
