Last chance to apply for heating grant
12:10pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A North Pembrokeshire community group is offering people the chance to install subsidised woodfired heating but the closing date is the end of this month.
Cilgwyn community group has already secured solar hot water funding vouchers for a number of households that had previously applied and is offering a free self-install course in Cardigan on Thursday (February 28th).
It has now accessed a generous Renewable Heat Payment Communities grant for wood-fired heating.
“Some of the systems that are eligible for this grant are industrial in looks and scale,” said co-ordinator Vicky Moller.
“However, one wood-fired system which is eligible for this grant, the Broseley Evolution 26, looks like any other living room wood stove, but heats up to 15kW of water and is eligible for this grant.”
There are grants of up to £1,940 available for solar hot water; £3,000 for ground source heat pumps and £4,000 for biomass systems.
In all cases properties must be suitable.
Applications for the wood fired heating grants must be submitted this month. More applications are also welcome for the heat pumps and solar hot water grants, but these must also be submitted before the end of February.
