Boiler Replacement Scheme Welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has welcomed the expansion of the Boiler Replacement Scheme due to commence in September 2012.
Mr. McMullan said,
“The Pilot Boiler Replacement Scheme was completed in March 2012 and following the success of the initiative the scheme is being extended right across the North.
“The scheme will involve the allocation of grants up to £1000 to help families either to upgrade their boiler to a more efficient design or to change the boiler in order to work with another type of fuel.
“While the inspection fee of £60 is compulsory, if successful the grant will go a long way in giving households the ability to change to a more efficient heating system.
“I would also appeal for those people who have previously applied and were not successful to reapply again as they may now be eligible for the grant.
“People looking to apply can use the helpline on 0300 200 7874 or e-mail address www.nidirect.gov.uk"
