Ryedale District Council has launched a new scheme to help local residents keep cosy and warm this winter.
The Ryedale Energy Saver Scheme offers eligible householders access to a series of grants and loans to fund home insulation and heating improvements.
The scheme, which is managed by YES Energy Solutions on behalf of the Council, helps local residents reduce their fuel bills with a strong focus on helping vulnerable householder’s improve their health and wellbeing.
Wall insulation, boiler replacements and other energy saving measures can be funded through a variety of sources including: Council grants, low cost loans and capital from the Government’s ECO programme.
Councillor Linda Cowling at Ryedale District Council explained:
‘We’re committed to helping local people access the latest energy saving opportunities, be it Council funds or support from central Government. Through the Ryedale Energy Saver Scheme we will check to see what support you are eligible for, what improvements are best for your home and connect you to trusted, industry approved installers.’

Duncan McCombie, Chief Executive of YES Energy Solutions added:
‘YES Energy Solutions is delighted to be supporting this initiative and helping the people of Ryedale save energy and money. We’ve managed to secure additional funding to work in line with the Council’s existing schemes so that more people can benefit and keep their homes warm without breaking the bank.’
Homeowners and private renting tenants on a low household income or those that claim specific state benefits (such as Pension Credit or Child Tax Credit) could qualify for support under the scheme.
YES Energy Solutions will check each resident’s eligibility and carry out a detailed home assessment to determine how much funding can be claimed.
Householders are encouraged to call the Ryedale Energy Saver Helpline on: 0330 053 5631 to find out what support is available.
