New strategy to end fuel poverty - 23 July 10  

Back to News Home

A NEW strategy to lift Wales’ poorest families out of fuel poverty will be unveiled today by the Assembly Government.

It aims to eradicate fuel poverty “as far as is reasonably practicable” by 2018.

Households are considered poor if fuel bills take up more than 10% of their income.

The new Fuel Poverty Scheme, which will replace the Home Energy Efficiency Scheme, is designed to “more effectively target the most inefficient properties and the most vulnerable households in Wales”.

Environment Minister Jane Davidson said: “Our fuel poverty strategy provides an opportunity not only to help those struggling to pay their fuel bills but also provides us with the chance to support the economic recovery.”
