Grants for new gas connection
You may qualify for help in paying for your new gas connection.
Wales & West Utilities Ltd (WWU), in partnership with Integrated Energy Services, a sister company of Warm Wales Cymru Gynnes, offer a connection grant. You could qualify for help towards the cost of connecting your home to mains gas. The scheme is designed to help people who have difficulty in paying to heat their home. They would be better able to manage their fuel bills with access to gas and the competitive energy market, more choice of payment arrangements and new energy saving heating systems.
The offer applies to existing domestic homes and you must live in the home as your main residence.
You could receive a grant if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You live in an area eligible for support as designated by the energy regulator
- You would need to spend more than 10% of your income on household fuel to reach an acceptable standard of heating (Wales) or you have a low income and high heating costs (England), as defined by the Government.
- You receive certain Government benefits

How it works
If you meet the criteria, we will send you a voucher towards the cost of the gas connection. It may cover the full cost or part of the cost. You can then send the voucher to Wales & West Utilities Ltd when you sign and accept the quotation. Integrated Energy Services and Warm Wales will also be able to tell you if there is any other funding available, towards the cost of a boiler or home insulation.
