npower has welcomed the start of the Government’s home boiler scrappage scheme, and has pledged to continue its own, potentially doubling the savings offered to customers who choose to replace their boiler.
In December 2009 npower became the first energy supplier to launch its own boiler scrappage scheme. The combination of the two scrappage schemes means consumers could be eligible to receive as much as £800 towards the cost of a new boiler, when replacing one that is over 10 years old (G rated).
Kevin Miles, CEO of npower retail, said: “It’s vital we play our part in supporting this Government initiative. Customers can now enjoy £800 off the cost of a new boiler as well as saving nearly£235 off an annual gas bill, compared to a G Rated boiler*. We are delighted to welcome some of our competitors who have followed npower’s example and pledged to match the Government’s scheme.”
