In December 2009 npower became the first energy supplier
to launch its own boiler scrappage scheme.
The combination of the two scrappage schemes means consumers could be eligible to

over 10 years old (G rated).
Kevin Miles, CEO of npower retail, said: "It's vital we play our part in
supporting this Government initiative. Customers can now enjoy £800 off the cost of
a new boiler as well as saving nearly£235 off an annual gas bill, compared to a G Rated boiler*. We are delighted to
welcome some of our competitors who have followed npower's example and pledged to
match the Government’s scheme."
