Walsall Housing Group has partnered with British Gas to deliver a £40 million Energy Company Obligation programme to thousands of private residents.

Walsall Housing Group is setting up Surefire, the first time a programme has been set up with a single energy supplier, to remove the need for complex procurement.

Through the partnership, thousands of private residents will be able to benefit from accessing the same framework and funding packages as social housing residents in a bid to deliver truly inclusive community schemes across the country.

The eight-year Surefire partnership framework will focus initially on supporting lower income areas across the country with a wide range of energy efficiency measures set to be delivered across social and privately-owned homes as well as commercial properties.

In its first phase, Surefire will see more than 3,000 of WHG’s homes transformed across Walsall as a standalone ECO project.

The £30 million project delivered across housing schemes in the Walsall borough will be supported by a £10 million ECO funding grant delivered by British Gas with the remainder being provided by WHG.
