Huge Success: 89% of Boiler Upgrade Scheme Vouchers Used

According to newly released data from Ofgem, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme vouchers that were issued were a huge success. The data discusses the amount of money spent on the scheme and its overall performance.

The scheme, abbreviated to BUS, allows homes and non-domestic premises across England and Wales to upgrade their old boilers to cleaner, greener heating methods.

In the scheme, applicants can receive grants of £7,500 to aid in replacing heating systems that release harmful emissions. They are replaced with renewable energy systems like heat pumps.

Over £50,000,000 was spent in the first year of the scheme being rolled out which was then succeeded in the next year with an expense of over £88,700,000.
