Qualifying households can significantly reduce the cost of getting a gas connection through Scotia Gas Networks. Qualifying households within the network area will likely have the full cost of connection covered. Scotia gas manages the gas network throughout Scotland and in the south of England. There is a postcode checker on their website here.
The household must have arrangements in place to install a gas central heating system following connection.
Qualifying criteria are one of:
- living in one of the top 20% most deprived areas within Scotia gas network areas
- in receipt of certain benefits
- living in fuel poverty based on the current government criteria
- aged 70 years or over
