As a follow on our latest post where we advised on two schemes to support homeowners, the “Green Deal” and the “Renewable Heat Incentive it has come to our attention that a new local scheme has been made available and it is aimed specifically for those on a lower income.
Headline – Nottingham Energy Launch Nottinghamshire Green Homes Grant
Local climate change charity, Nottingham Energy Partnership (NEP), has joined forces with Nottinghamshire County Council and E.ON to launch the Green Homes Grant Nottinghamshire. Eligible residents can now access low-carbon heating systems such as air source heat pumps and solar power to generate hot water and electricity. Solid wall, cavity wall and loft insulation measures, which have the quickest and biggest impact on energy conservation, are also covered in the grant. The scheme offers smaller measures such as replacement doors and smart heating heating controls for your new system too.
To meet eligibility criteria for these free measures, residents must:
- Be a Nottinghamshire homeowner;
- Have a combined gross household income of under £30k; and
- have an Energy Performance Certificate of D,E,F or G.
To register your interest for the Green Homes Grant project, apply at www.nottenergy.com/green-homes-grant-notts or call them on 0115 9472207
As you will note this is a local scheme as opposed to the two Government Schemes relayed previously.
The reason for making you aware of these schemes is it is these types of green solutions we as a group are looking to promote for any future homes that are built and associated in our Neighbourhood Plan. There will be more on this in the ensuing months.
