E.ON offers free ground source heat pumps worth up to £11,500 to vulnerable households

E.ON, one of the UK's leading power and gas companies, has today (THURS) announced it is to become the first energy supplier in the UK to offer its HeatPlant ground source heat pump technology for free to coal-fuelled vulnerable communities.

It is estimated that more than a quarter of a million people in the UK are currently using coal to heat their homes2. Many of these rural and inner city households have to rely on coal because they are either not on the mains gas supply network or simply cannot afford to make the alterations required to make their home more energy efficient.

To tackle this 19th-century problem, E.ON is offering a 21st-century solution – the E.ON HeatPlant, a ground source heat pump. The company is offering the system fully installed, including central heating and hot water plumbing, free of charge to coal-fuelled households on qualifying benefits – a package worth up to £11,500 – a system it has already installed in the village of Lighthorne Heath in Warwickshire.

Mike Newell, Low Carbon Manager at E.ON said: “After the huge success of HeatPlant in Lighthorne Heath, we’re delighted to be launching this initiative across the country. Not only will it enable us to offer another valuable option to customers who are currently coal heated, we hope it will bring local communities together while benefiting the surrounding environment.”

In addition, E.ON is offering significantly discounted HeatPlant systems for householders using electric, oil and LPG heating.

The pioneering HeatPlant technology relies on extracting natural heat from 80m below the ground and using it to heat homes and water. The technology is similar to the way a fridge uses a refrigerant to extract heat from the inside, keeping the food cool, except with ground source heat pumps the heat is extracted from the ground and keeps the home warm.

While offering residents a much cleaner and greener form of fuel, the HeatPlant system has a wide range of other benefits:

It's better for the environment; for homeowners who currently only rely on burning coal to heat their homes, a HeatPlant is a more environmentally friendly option by reducing CO2 emissions by 74% a year3;

It's cheaper; when installed in a coal fuel heated home, a HeatPlant could save as much as 67% a year on heating bills3;

It’s more convenient; providing controllable heating and hot water instead of having to carry coal and make a fire to keep warm or have a bath;

It has a long life expectancy; the HeatPlant unit is expected to run for 20 years with the ground loops within the ground expected to last for 50 years. In addition, there are no ongoing maintenance costs.

Seven homes in the village of Lighthorne Heath in Warwickshire, that previously relied on coal fired heating, were recently chosen by E.ON as the trailblazer for this new initiative – Community HeatPlant.

Mrs Collins, a Lighthorne Heath resident, describes the difference the HeatPlant has made to her: “I’ve lived alone in my house for 11 years and have seen the cost of solid fuel rise and rise. I get through 6 bags of coal a month at about £18 a bag.”

“E.ON has replaced everything from my new heating system to new radiators and the savings I’ll make will go a long way. I can have the house warm whenever I want, and there’s constant hot water without the cost. This new system gives me control over my heating, and it’s clean so I don’t have to deal with the mess of a coal fire. I’m really pleased with it so far!”

By working with MPs, local community groups and local authorities, E.ON will be finding eligible customers to provide them with clean, green and cost-effective warmth.

The offer is open to groups of six or more households where at least one resident in each property is receiving a means-tested benefit. Households must currently be heated by coal and have no mains gas supply.
