Baxi Group welcomes the announcement that Wales is to benefit from a boiler scrappage room scheme similar to that which has been running in England since 5 January 2010. However, only people over the age of 60 will qualify for £500 towards the cost of a replacing an old, G rated boiler under the £2.5 million scheme.
Mark Kelly, CEO of Baxi Group UK and Ireland, said: "We are very pleased that another of the devolved countries has committed to helping people replace their old, inefficient boilers. The Welsh scheme will be targeting over 60s, who they consider to be more vulnerable to fuel poverty.
"The scheme will help to cut fuel bills by around £235, as well as significantly reducing household carbon emissions. And homes in off mains gas areas will have the opportunity to replace G rated boilers replaced with new, high efficiency, A rated LPG boilers or low carbon technologies such as biomass boilers."
The scheme will come into force on 1 April this year and the £2.5 million has been allocated for 2010/11. In addition, £1.4 million will be invested in the Welsh Home Energy Efficiency Scheme, to help tackle fuel poverty in households by improving heating and insulation.
