Get Advice on Cutting Energy Costs with Council’s Energy Efficiency Scheme

This winter and into spring could see higher energy prices for Mid Ulster residents as gas, coal and oil costs increase. Mid Ulster District Council are therefore encouraging residents to take timely advantage of its Energy Efficiency Scheme. 

Under the Scheme, residents can contact the Council’s Energy Advisor, who can then provide tailored support for clients on how to be more energy efficient within their homes, including the generation of referrals to other available support schemes.

Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Paul McLean said: 

 “If you, or someone you know is struggling with rising energy bills or is living in a cold or damp house, the start of a new year is the perfect time to contact us so that you or someone you know can receive support under the Energy Efficiency Scheme. We’ve all seen the increase in energy prices towards the tail end of 2021, which may be with us for some time, so by giving advice on improving the energy efficiency of our homes, our Scheme can help you to minimise the impact on your household running costs in 2022.”

Depending on the needs of the individual households, the scheme can provide bespoke energy efficiency advice to help lower costs and increase the ability of buildings to hold heat; give information on local oil buying clubs and the Council’s Fuel Stamps Scheme that can reduce or help spread the cost of home heating oil; and assist with onward referrals for heating and insulation grants to improve the energy efficiency of your home. 

The Energy Efficiency Scheme is one of a number of schemes offered by Mid Ulster District Council to help residents with energy costs, such as its Affordable Warmth Scheme and Fuel Stamp initiative. 

For further information on this or any of the Council’s energy schemes, residents can go to, contact Mid Ulster District Council on 03000 132 132 and ask to speak to the Energy Efficiency Adviser, or email
