People on low incomes whose homes have an energy efficiency rating of D to G are being invited to apply for grant funding of up to £10,000, to improve their energy rating and save money on energy bills.
Eastleigh Borough Council, along with other local authorities, has secured funding from the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery (LAD) scheme. Unlike the national Green Homes Grant scheme, which wrapped up on the 31 March, the LAD scheme is operating until September 2021.
The scheme is eligible to those on low household incomes who are at risk of fuel poverty and are living in properties which have an energy efficiency rating of D, E, F or G.
It provides up to £10,000 per household for certain measures to improve the energy efficiency rating of the property - such as wall insulation, air source heat pumps or solar PV panels, as well as other secondary measures. Improving the energy efficiency of the home will help to bring down energy bills.
The scheme is also available to those living in park (mobile) homes.
The scheme operates on a first-come, first-serve basis until September 2021 only, so be sure to get your application in early.
