Funding available for energy-efficiency measures for your household

Hart News Swf Ad1024 1

Hart District Council have a new home grant called Sustainable Warmth that is available for lower incomes to help save energy and money as early as this winter. The grants are for those with net household incomes of under £30K AND living in a house that is EPC rated E, F or G.

Across the UK, many households will are seeing the cost of gas and electricity rise by more than 50% as the energy price cap – the limit on what energy suppliers can charge – increases.

This shift will see many feeling the pinch, but there are changes you can make to try and keep energy costs under control. Energy-saving improvements could make your home more efficient, keeping a lid on rising energy prices. Some households across the South East may even be eligible for a government grant to fund energy-efficiency works.

Sustainable Warmth is a new Government grant scheme designed to fund energy-efficiency upgrades to residents who are most likely to be impacted by the high cost of rising bills. These improvements will help residents to use less energy and spend less on their energy bills.

A bit more detail about the grant:

  • This can also apply to those in private rented accommodation, and D rated properties, but a contribution needs to be made and E, F and G properties are being prioritised
  • If you aren’t sure of your EPC rating, it can be looked up here: https://www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate
  • After applying, a home survey will be organised and work worth on average ~£10K for things such as insulation, solar panels and lower-carbon heating can be organised
  • This is all managed from start to end by Hart’s managing agents, City Energy
  • It’s fully funded by the government (unless it’s a landlord or EPC rated D)
  • Applications must be made before 31st December 2022
