Together with our partners, Walsall Council has been at the forefront in home energy improvements for many years. We have led the way, from the nationally-acclaimed Walsall Health Through Warmth Scheme, to the first Community Energy Saving Programmes (CESP) to start in the country. We have also secured some of the highest Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) funding in the midlands region.
Our work continues with a lead in talking unlawful energy performance certificates (MEES), attracting Energy Company Obligation Funding (ECO and ECO-flex), and securing Local Authority Delivery Scheme (LADS) funding in 2021.
