May 14, 2024

According to newly released data from Ofgem, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme is hot! 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.
