The ‘Cosy Homes in Lancashire’ (CHiL) scheme is a countywide energy efficiency
and affordable warmth initiative. CHiL was developed by the 15 Local Authorities in Lancashire following a comprehensive energy efficiency study commissioned by Blackpool Public Health in 2013. The scheme has the backing of all the Chief Executives and the Directors of Public Health. and covers all Council backed energy saving initiatives in the County and it offers an accessible and straightforward means of accessing grants from energy companies and other sources to fund new heating measures, insulation and renewable technologies in domestic properties.
Since the scheme launched in 2014 we have successfully secured over £10million of funding which has helped more than 10,500 residents to save money through energy saving advice and measures. In 2016/17 CHiL helped 570 households to have first time central heating systems installed. Current funding will allow a further 1200 properties to have central heating installed before 2022.
The aim of CHiL is to be Lancashire's 'One Stop Shop for Warmth' offering help and assistance to every household in the County.
