Low-income Residents across Torridge can benefit from free energy efficiency improvements worth up to £10,000 thanks to receiving a share of a multi-million pound Government funded programme, led by West of England Combined Authority, working with E.ON and Happy Energy Solutions.
Under the Green Homes Grants Scheme, owner occupiers will benefit from energy efficiency installations up to the value of £10,000 with nothing for them to pay towards the costs of works. Tenants of rented properties can also access grants of up to £5,000 for energy efficiency upgrades, but the landlord will be expected to contribute at least one third towards the cost of works.
To be eligible for the grants the residents of the property must have a low income (receive benefits or have the household income below £30,000 per annum) and the EPC for the property must be rated D, E, F or G. If there is no EPC for your property, you can still apply and it doesn’t matter who your energy supplier is.
If you’re struggling to keep your home warm and think you might be eligible for some help, you can submit an application at the following website www.heatdevon.co.uk
The scheme is expected to run until March 2022, but will operate on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you qualify, Happy Energy Solutions will survey your home to assess which energy efficiency measures could be installed.The options will then be discussed with you for a final decision to be reached.
