Accelerate the uptake of insulation
Three things accelerate the uptake of home insulation in our experience:
1) Grants 2) Promotion 3) Service.
USEA can help you make the case for further funding to subsidise insulation measures. We'll use our proven Area Based Approach to deliver the volume and quality of referrals needed to make your energy efficiency grant a success. With referrals channelled through our Cocoon service, quality is assured.
In 2009/10 over £0.5m of extra CERT funding was attracted into Milton Keynes thanks to the Council's £95 Insulation Offer managed by Cocoon. Almost 2500 extra households had insulation fitted as a result.
"Had the Council administered the grant itself, it is estimated administrative costs would have been at least £20,000. The incentive grant was administered and fully managed by the United Sustainable Energy Agency therefore saving around £16,500.’
Louise Quinn, Chiltern District Council
An ABA starts with consultation, research and mapping to target areas with potential. A simple marketing plan is written up and agreed to make the most of free promotional channels. Usually canvassers are deployed in the second phase of the promotion. USEA's call centre handles all phone enquiries.
