At the time Alans efforts had seen over 1000 residents receive a free home visit through LEAP, with many other positive key deliverables being achieved, such as: free boilers, storage heater upgrades as well as cavity wall and loft insulation measures.
Exeter Warm and Healthy Park Home Scheme
Peter Bywater picked up an award on behalf of Ridgewater Energy with Exeter City Council and Therm-Eco EWI Ltd, who are their main contractor on the Exeter Warm and Healthy Park Home Scheme (Now part of ‘Warm Up Exeter’).
The award recognised the collaborative efforts of Ridgewater Energy and Therm Eco, in delivering a wide range of measures and interactions along with other partners.
At the time, the scheme had assisted over 100 park home residents to have external wall insulation, loft insulation, underfloor insulation, glazing upgrades and under chassis repairs carried out, with grant assistance from Exeter City Council and loans from Wessex Resolutions CIC.
The scheme also referred clients into LEAP for a broad range of assistance, to Age UK for benefits checks, and to any other appropriate agencies.
As of September 2019 the scheme has now assisted over 220 residents, some of which have recently had their second grant from the scheme!
