2011 will see a new boiler replacement scheme in Northern Ireland

10th Jan 2011

This year will see the introduction of a new boiler replacement scheme for vulnerable people in Northern Ireland.

The scheme will be targeted at those with inefficient boilers and aims to tackle fuel poverty.

Fuel poverty figures in Northern Ireland are currently high with over a third of all households experiencing it.

In England and Scotland, as part of replacement boiler schemes, vouchers worth £400 – £5,000 were offered to people prepared to replace their boilers.
