Offer of grants to convert to gas

Banbridge residents can access a grant worth up to £1,300 to convert to gas.

The ‘Gas Conversion Grant’ is for those wishing to change their home-heating fuel to natural gas.

Michelle Trainor, for firmus energy, explained: “The ‘Gas Conversion Grant’ is being offered by the government and is supported by firmus energy to help households convert to cheaper, more convenient natural gas, which is also the most environmentally-friendly fossil fuel available to homes and businesses 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“firmus energy is providing a £300 grant to all households wishing to convert to natural gas within their network areas, including Banbridge, and the NI Executive then contributes up to an additional £1000, dependent on income, to owner occupiers with an oil or LPG boiler that is at least 15 years old.
