Utilities Fire-Up Their Own Scheme As Government Is Blind On Start Date

December 30, 2009

Claims that the Department for Energy are failing to provide a commencement date for the Boiler Scrappage Scheme, may just be the catalyst needed to kick-start a skeletal Government into delivering the scheme’s full details over the cold Christmas period.

One of the original advocates of the scheme and who welcomed the pre-budget announcement, Pimlico Plumbers may have thrown down the proverbial gauntlet yesterday in an attempt to force Chancellor Alistair Darling’s hand into committing to a start date.

The festive cold period is exacerbating the nations wait for the Boiler Scrappage Scheme,while a Government is snow blind on a start date.

Utilities Fire-Up Their Own Schemes

However, help is at hand, as utility providers including nPower and British Gas have already commenced with their own Boiler Scrappage Schemes. The gas and electricity suppliers to millions of homeowners have jumped-started the scheme with their own money saving offers on new energy efficient boilers, central heating systems and insurance cover.

The energy providers lead was recently acknowledged by a Department for Energy spokesman; “Some companies are planning on making their own offers in a similar vein that will help families make the switch to more modern energy efficient boilers.

“This will kick-start a nationwide effort to save energy and cut carbon, whilst helping to sustain jobs. We will launch the scheme early in the New Year.”
