Green Living Leicestershire


Funding is available for energy efficiency improvements to homes in Leicestershire at no cost to residents.

Scheme in detail

YES Energy Solutions is working with district councils in Leicestershire to provide residents with fully funded home improvements for residents who use electric, oil or solid fuel to heat their homes.

Green Living Leicestershire will help reduce energy bills, keep homes warmer and reduce carbon emissions.

The schemes are coordinated by the Midlands Energy Hub with funding coming from the Government.

Homeowners and private renters can apply if they think they meet the eligibility criteria and their property is suitable.

Your landlord must make a contribution to cover a minimum of one third of the total costs of the measures installed.

Our teams are qualifying residents and coordinating surveys and installs on behalf of the councils.

Councils include:

  • Blaby District Council
  • Charnwood Borough Council
  • Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
  • Harborough District Council
  • Melton Borough Council
  • North West Leicestershire District Council

Leicester City Council is not taking part in this scheme.

Are you eligible?

The schemes will help residents living in homes with poor energy efficiency ratings who also have a low income.

To qualify householders must:

  • Have a household income of £31,000 or less,


  • Receive income related benefits


  • Live in an area identified by the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero as eligible - you can check if your postcode is eligible here.

There may also be limits on the amount of savings you can have.

Is your property eligible?

You must also live in a property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F, G.

Find your EPC on the Government’s website here.

Your property type and structure will impact what measures and funding you can receive.

What could you receive?

If you qualify for the scheme, your property will undergo a survey to see which improvements would improve its warmth and efficiency the most.

Your property type will also affect how much funding you can receive, but it can be between £10,000 and £25,000.

Examples of what you could receive for free include:

If you and your property is eligible for the measure(s) in the scheme, our surveyors will create a plan that selects one or more measures to provide maximum benefits.
