Ryedale District Council has launched a new scheme to help local resident 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.
Staff at YES Energy Solutions have raised over £500 for the charity – Renewable World, by taking on the Sheffield Big Fun Run dressed as penguins.
Our penguin athletes completed the 5K Challenge in less than 35 minutes on Sunday 14th August at the Rother Valley Country Park.
The money the team have raised for Renewable World is enough to give five families in Nicaragua access to solar power for a year, meaning they no longer have to pollute their home with toxic kerosene fumes and that their children have light to study by in the evening.
YES Energy Solutions chose to dress up as penguins to replicate their own company mascot – Percy the Penguin!

Seven YES penguin runners will hit the tracks of the Rother Valley Country Park in Sheffield on the 14th August.
Throughout the scheme Ian has gone over and above the call of duty to help local residents save energy and cut their fuel bills. This included scheduling extra appointments around residents with specific needs, offering bespoke energy saving advice and actually installing floor insulation to help residents trap even more heat.
The Heat Hero awards are an annual event run by NEA in partnership with ScottishPower that celebrate individuals who have made a significant commitment to reducing fuel poverty in the UK.
