UK government set to end ban on new onshore windfarms

Deal reached that paves way for communities in England to authorise projects without unanimous turbines could be installed if gaining support from local communities.

Launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) last month, the ECO+ scheme is part of the Government’s push to help Britons across the country bring down their energy bills. Under the plans, the ECO+ scheme will provide £1billion worth of funding which be allocated to households across England, Scotland, and Wales to cover the cost of home improvements to aid energy costs.

The Government said that around a fifth of the fund will be targeted to those who are the most vulnerable, including those on means-tested benefits or classed as being in fuel poverty.
