Future Energy Scheme grants
Following a successful bid to the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy the council now has access to funding for air source heat pumps for those private sector, owner-occupied dwellings off the gas network. This funding is to support low-income households, living in energy inefficient homes by installing energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating. Domestic dwellings must have an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G and be able to be improved via the installation of an air source heat pump and insulation measures to a rating of C or D (depending on the starting EPC rating) within the funding provided.
To find out if you qualify to access the funding for an air source heat pump in your home, or someone you know, contact (01482) 396301 option 2 or email the healthy homes team.
If you wish to register your interest for the Future Energy Scheme, please complete and return the following form by email to the healthy homes team email@example.com
