Warmer Homes Scheme Extended

Deputy Noel Coonan has welcomed the news that last Friday’s deadline for receiving applications under the Warmer Homes Scheme has been extended.

Due to a large demand for the scheme, no closing date has been decided for acceptance of forms. The local Fine Gael TD said North Tipperary people can still apply by ringing his office on 0504 32544 or contacting Sustainable Energy Ireland on 1800 250 204.

“My constituency offices have been inundated with queries about the scheme and in my conversation with Sustainable Energy Ireland I was informed last week that last Friday’s deadline was scrapped. This is welcome news for people who were anxiously trying to apply before week’s end,” said Deputy Coonan.

The Warmer Homes Scheme aims to improve the energy efficiency and warmth of homes that are lived in by people on low incomes. It is operated by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), Ireland’s national energy agency. To qualify, you must live in a privately-owned home and be eligible for fuel allowance. A standard cost of approximately €150 may be charged for the work with the rest covered by the scheme.
Regional and community-based organisations are funded to carry out the work, which includes:
•    Attic insulation
•    Draught proofing
•    Lagging jackets
•    Energy efficient lighting
•    Cavity wall insulation
•    Energy advice.
