Yorkshire bills more than doubled since 2018: how Eclipse Energy can help you!

Did you know that the rise in energy bills in Yorkshire is higher than in any other region in the UK?

Energy costs for Yorkshire households have more than doubled since 2018 according to BBC analysis of government figures.

The average cost of gas and electricity combined for households has risen to more than £2,600 from £1,200 just a few years ago in 2018.

Although the UK has a national power grid, energy bills can vary between regions because of differences in transmission costs and the amount of energy consumed.

Yorkshire generally has older housing stocks than a lot of other regions in the UK, and as you probably know older houses are generally less energy efficient than newer built homes.

The government has said that its £3.9bn Heat and Buildings Strategy will see 500,000 homes across the country made more energy efficient in the next few years. And it is with this and other government funding where Eclipse Energy can help reduce your energy costs with part or fully funded home energy improvement measures.

How Eclipse Energy can help reduce your energy costs

With Eclipse Energy and the Government funded ECO4 scheme we can improve the energy efficiency of your home and you may be eligible to get the work done fully or partly funded.
