The Boiler Scrappage Scheme


Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband announce the start of the boiler scrappage scheme today. According Miliband “The boiler scrappage scheme will save around £200 off heating bills per year for families that are replacing their old boilers, and in total will save the same amount of carbon equivalent to taking around 45,000 cars off the road.” The Government hopes that the boiler scrappage scheme will help sustain work for 130,000 installers of boilers as the economic recovery begins.
