Andy Mayer quoted in the Express Online

The government announced this week that it will offer 90,000 households in England and Wales grants of £5,000 to help them replace old gas boilers with low carbon heat pumps.

He warned that the scheme will lead to higher energy bills for those still on the gas grid.
