You could get up to £10,000 to help you save money on energy bills
Improved insulation could be paid for by the scheme
Residents of Hammersmith & Fulham are being encouraged to consider applying for a Green Home Grant to make home improvements to reduce their energy bills.
Those living in the coldest and least efficient properties may be eligible for up to grant funding to install energy efficiency measures. These include insulation, smart heating controls and low carbon heating systems.
Gas boiler repairs and replacements are not included. These may be completed under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).
To be eligible, your home must have an energy rating of D, E, F or G and you must have a total annual household income of £30,000 (including benefits) or less OR up to £20,000 after housing costs.
Landlords can also apply for the grant on behalf of tenants who meet the eligibility criteria. If you aren’t eligible, the council is also offering 100 free home improvement plans.
Once the work is agree it will be carried out by the council’s supplier network with no direct payment made to the householder.
“This scheme forms part of the work the council is doing to help those struggling with rising energy bills,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment. “Making homes more energy efficient will also help us to tackle the climate emergency and meet our net-zero goals by 2030.”
You can apply online here, or call 0808 196 8255 to apply. The council will then confirm your eligibility by asking a few questions on your income, benefits and household.
