- Fuel Poverty affects an estimated 13,902 out
of 84,028 Herefordshire households (16.5%). This figure is higher
than the national level of 13.4% and reflects the challenges that
the county faces in relation to the energy efficiency of properties
including a large proportion of older, hard to treat ‘solid
wall’ properties, restricted access to mains gas and the
resulting prevalence of expensive heating fuel systems.
- The fund, administered by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is allocating funding to be used to improve the energy efficiency of low-income houses living in Herefordshire and Shropshire as well as supporting the green recovery in response to Covid-19.
- The project will allow an estimated 50 Herefordshire and Shropshire households to access fully funded renewable Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) systems/Solid Wall Insulation (SWI) and/or energy efficient glazing and doors.
