npower and Enterprise to Deliver Kent and Medway ECO Projects

16th April, 2013

The Kent and Medway Green Deal Partnership is working with Enterprise and npower to deliver an ‘ECO retrofit’ project which will see 1,400 low-income households in seven ‘pilot’ areas retrofitted over the next 12 to 18 months with an initial funding of £12m.

Households in the Dartford, Gravesham, Medway, Swale, Thanet, and Dover districts have been identified based on how much they will benefit from energy-saving measures and their eligibility for ECO funding. The retrofit includes measures such as solid wall insulation and new heating systems.
If the project proves to be a success, it could be rolled out to more than 5,000 homes across Kent and Medway with the potential for up to £80m of funding across the next two years.
Nick Maggs at Enterprise and David Titterton at npower, said:
“Enterprise and npower are delighted to be working with the Kent and Medway Partnership to deliver this exciting new retrofit scheme.  We will engage with local businesses and communities to improve the homes of Kent and Medway’s residents through the installation of energy efficient heating and insulation to reduce energy bills.  We are committed to the Partnership’s aims of providing longer term employment, environmental and economic benefits for the area, and look forward to delivering a successful project.”
