Eligible residents could receive fully funded energy efficiency measures up to a value of £10,000 to improve the warmth of their property and reduce their fuel bills.
Coordinated by the Midlands Energy Hub, there is a number of schemes set to launch by local authorities in the area, with available insulation and low carbon heating measures for householders differing throughout the region.
The schemes will be open to private renters and social housing tenants as well as homeowners, however landlords will be required to make a contribution to cover a third of the costs.
Councils launching schemes include:
North East Lincolnshire
The awarded capital originates from the Government's £500m drive to help local authorities improve the energy efficiency of low-income homes in their area.
Eligibility criteria for LAD funding
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 £30,000 or less (including housing costs and benefit payments) and,
Live in a property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F, G, or D (if there's fewer than 50% D rated properties signed up to the scheme).
YES Energy Solutions is supporting residents through the qualification process for all LAD funding schemes in the region.
We will offer energy efficiency advice and refer eligible residents onto the appropriate local authority scheme.
The schemes are not yet available and we will publish more information soon, however if you are a householder interested in learning more please get in touch.
As part of the funding criteria, the personal data for every applicant will be shared with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Please download and read BEIS’s privacy notice which covers how they will process the personal data collected and the rights of data subjects.
