The Better Energy Warmer Homes scheme delivers a range of energy efficiency measures to households that are vulnerable to energy poverty and who live in privately-owned dwellings. The upgrades are delivered free of charge to the customer. The scheme is administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) on behalf of my Department. To raise awareness and invite applications to the scheme from eligible households, mailshots are periodically delivered through direct marketing. These mailshots are issued in collaboration with the Department of Social Protection and such mailshots have proved highly successful in identifying eligible households in other counties. Mailshots have been previously delivered in Carlow, Clare, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Sligo, Tipperary, Westmeath and Wicklow. In March, a mailshot was issued to Fuel Allowance recipients in counties Roscommon, Leitrim and Longford. There are three SEAI appointed Community Based Organisations (CBOs) delivering the Warmer Homes Scheme in these counties, two of which are Local Development Partnership Companies. SEAI is not excluding these CBOs in any way from the scheme. All three CBOs were advised in advance of the mailshot and will receive applications that result from the mailshot where they are unable to generate applications through their own resources.
