Please note that home visits, surveys and installs are not currently available from the Energy Advice Service due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All partners in the scheme are monitoring the situation closely and work in homes will resume once advice from the Government deems this safe.
How to get in touch
Residents from Bromsgrove and Redditch can contact the Energy Advice Service.
Speak to our advisors about how you can slash your energy bills as well as the various funding options for energy saving home improvements:
The Energy Advice Service can help you access the Government's Green Homes Grant by helping you through the application process and finding TrustMark accredited installers to complete the work.
Both homeowners and renters can apply for a voucher which covers up to two thirds of the cost of the works (up to £5,000). There is no eligibility criteria, so you can access a grant providing that your property is technically suitable.
Social housing tenants and private renters cannot apply for vouchers directly and will need to contact their Landlord.
In addition, homeowners receiving certain benefits can get installs fully funded, up to the value of £10,000.
Grants are allocated on first come first served basis and all installs must be completed by the end of March 2021.
YES Energy Solutions’ friendly advisors can offer you advice and support when applying for a Green Homes Grant. You are advised to get three quotes from Trustmark accredited contractors and YES Energy Solutions can help you find suitable installers in your area.
Our network of accredited installers will complete installations for residents qualifying for funding from the service and, where council contributions are used, issue carbon monoxide alarms where appropriate and Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for upgraded properties.
Running over three years, we will help the councils continue to reduce their contribution to climate change by improving energy usage while helping vulnerable residents live in warmer and cosier homes.
Don’t have central heating?
Bromsgrove and Redditch residents that currently use storage heaters, room heaters or fires as their main heating source could qualify for a fully funded central heating upgrade.
