Cosy Homes in Lancashire
Cosy as can be
A group of 14 local authorities make up the Cosy Homes in Lancashire (CHiL) energy improvement scheme. From external wall insulation to new boilers, CHiL is addressing fuel poverty in the region and has assisted more than 7,000 households to date, focusing on the oldest properties in the most deprived areas. This is a rare example of a local authority contracting directly with energy companies to deliver the full range of energy efficiency measures.
A unique concept driven by Public Health and Energy Officers joining forces, CHiL’s major achievement has been to get all 14 local authorities and Lancashire County Council working together to subsidise energy efficiency measures for the most vulnerable households.
