The Green Deal is the new government initiative that allows you to make energy-saving improvements to your home or business without having to pay all the costs up front.
Wrap Up Leeds ECO is a partnership between Leeds City Council, Keepmoat, Wilmott Dixon and SSE.
Since July 2013, Wrap Up Leeds ECO has been helping Leeds householders cut their fuel bills by offering free cavity wall, loft insulation and free boiler replacements to people on certain benefits*.
Now we are extending the scheme to everyone in private housing in Leeds offering discounted energy efficiency home improvements**.
Wrap Up Leeds ECO offers a wide range of energy efficiency improvements including:
- loft and wall insulation
- heating improvements
- renewable energy
- draft proofing and other smaller improvements
Depending on where you live, what fuel you use and what your house needs to become more energy efficient you could receive financial support. In certain circumstances some work may be done for free.
We are particularly keen on hearing from residents with electrical, coal or LPG heated properties as the highest level of funding can be secured for homes using these heating systems.
New wall insulation products are available, the majority of which can be either part of fully funded through ECO subsidiers, so we can now help many people whose homes have hard to treat cavity or solid wall types. If you have been turned down for cavity wall or loft insulation in the past, please contact us.
