Horsham District Council, as part of a consortium of 21 local authority partners, led by Portsmouth City Council and AgilityEco has launched a new grant funded scheme for domestic energy efficiency improvement which will be known as Warmer Homes.
The scheme is available to homeowners who live in a property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of D or below and have a household income of below £30,000 per year or are on specific means tested benefits. Tenants renting in the private sector can also apply if they meet this eligibility criteria but their landlords will be expected to contribute to the cost.
Measures available include insulation, air source heat pumps, solar PV, high heat retention storage heaters and heating controls. Funding levels range from £10,000 to £25,000, this depends on the applicants heating system. The variation is a result of two funding streams (Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme and Home Upgrade Grant), merged into one scheme.
