The system works! LEAP Home Energy Update
Following a review of the LEAP scheme in association with BCP council, the figures provided from April 2017 to April 2019 show the benefits these funded grant schemes had on our local community.
Ridgewater Energy are committed to delivering even more of these grants and rely on local charities and organisations, to help encourage those in need to benefit from these opportunities.
If there are any events we can help to assist you with, please do get in touch to enable us to work in partnership and support your endeavours too.
LEAP is a fully funded energy saving service for those on a low income, suffering from poor heatlh or are vulnerable, in the BH postcodes and surrounding areas. The assessment allows for free installation of energy saving measures, such as LED light bulbs and draught proofing.
Owner occupier with a broken gas boiler? Candidates may be eligible for a fully funded brand new, A rated energy efficient gas boiler replacement. ECHO (Emergency Central Heating Offer) is a funded heating scheme that offers emergency assistance to qualifying households, to repair or replace broken or condemned gas boilers. Available throughout Dorset.
The ‘New’ Warmer Homes scheme is available to both owner occupiers and private tenants and can provide a free* gas connection (if within 23 metres of the property) and a gas central heating system to homes without a boiler currently, subject to eligibility. Available in BH postcodes.
Ending soon! Free appliances such as washing machines and fridge freezers, are still available for those who are not able to afford a replacement under HEART – having a LEAP visit enables an assessor to refer candidates for this scheme. We are expecting the scheme to be ending soon, so please refer candidates now.
