Boiler Scrappage Scheme Runs Out Of Steam

28 March 2010 by His-Nibs No Comment

The 125,000 £400 rebate vouchers for the Government Boiler Scrappage Scheme have now been snapped-up.
During the Chancellors Budget on Wednesday 24th March 2010 there was no mention of extending the scheme to the other 4 million owners of SEDBUK G rated boilers. Although, some energy companies are still offering incentives to off-set the funding that is no longer available from the UK Government..!!

Figures that have been recently released show that up to the 16th March (2010) 118,785 out of the 125,000 vouchers had already been allocated, with a total of 35,390 new A rated boilers having been fully installed.

According to Lord Hunt (the Energy & Climate Change Minister)…
“The scheme has been a great success and is already helping people cut down on their fuel bills. An A-rated energy efficient boiler can help save around £200 a year off fuel bills and reduce emissions.

The scheme has also provided a much needed boost to England’s plumbers and boiler manufacturers, helping to sustain work for the 130,000 installers and up to 25 UK-based boiler manufacturers throughout the economic recovery.”
