A Government green energy grant scheme is currently open for local homeowners and landlords to help them improve the efficiency of low income, and low energy performance homes.
To qualify homes must have an energy performance certificate rating of E, F or G and a household income of less than £30,000 per year – or with a household member in receipt of an eligible benefit.
Low income owner occupiers could receive up to £10,000 to cover the costs of approved works and there is no financial deposit/contribution to pay for most homes. Landlords can apply for up to £5,000 with a 33% landlord contribution.
Grant funding secured
Epping Forest District Council is part of an Essex County Council-led group that secured £813,000 of grant funding from the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme, established by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Funding covers things like cavity and solid wall insulation, loft insulation, room in roof insulation and heat pumps.
