NPower Launches its own Boiler Scrappage Scheme

December 15, 2009

Following the announcement of the Government’s proposed Boiler Scrappage Scheme, Npower has become the first major energy supplier to launch its own scrappage scheme.

As from Monday 14th December, Npower have said they will offer £400 off a new boiler when homeowners replace one that is more than 10 years old, with the only stipulation being that the new boiler is bought from and installed by Npower. Homeowners do not have to be existing Npower customers to qualify.

The incentive is in addition to that proposed by the Government meaning customers could potentially secure a total of £800 off their new boiler.

The process of the scheme announced by the Government, where households in England will be able to claim up to £400 if they replace their G-rated boiler with an energy-efficient one or with another renewable technology, has yet to be announced.

A Treasury spokesman said: “If the scheme is based on the car scrappage scheme, we hope claiming the incentive would be handled by the retailer“.

The scheme will begin in the new year and will run until the £50m funding has run out.
