Major Energy Saving Scheme Calls On SMEs

Installer-with-hard-hatSmall to medium sized installer organisations from Yorkshire will get the chance to join a major Government backed scheme which aims to improve the energy efficiency standards of over 28,000 homes across 10 Local Authority areas.

The Leeds City Region Green Deal is the latest scheme to help householders save energy through insulation, heating and renewable energy upgrades.

Funded through Energy Providers with Local Government backing, the scheme plans to create over 200 new jobs throughout the next three years. It is anticipated that 75% of the installations carried out on the programme will be undertaken by smaller installers.

Construction & Housing Yorkshire is working in partnership with YES Energy Solutions to help identify potential contractors to work on the scheme.

Local installers within the Leeds City Region can express their interest in joining the supply chain by registering their details on our Green Deal Installer Hub website: http://www.greendealinstallerhub.co.uk/leeds_city_region_green_deal.html
