Powys County Council
In August 2005 Powys County Council, in conjunction with several energy suppliers, local specialist contractors and the West Wales Eco Centre, launched the CO2 Initiative (CO2i).
The scheme provides all private-sector residents in areas identified as experiencing high levels of deprivation (as assessed using the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation) with the opportunity to apply for funding from both the Council and the utilities 'EEC' Fund to install loft and cavity wall insulation, draftproofing for windows and external doors, hot-water tank jackets, radiator reflector panels, replacement high-efficiency boilers and solar hot-water panels. The level of funding available per household depends upon the property type and the fuel sources used for central heating.
Funding for installation measures breaks down as follows:
