Low-income households invited to apply for energy efficiency upgrades

RBWM have secured a fund of £1.3m to help support low-income families in the borough to improve the energy efficiency of their homes while reducing their carbon footprint, with applications now open.

The funding, which has been secured from the Government’s Sustainable Warmth scheme, will be used to improve the energy performance of homes in the borough, including off-gas grid homes.

Eligible homeowners or private tenants can apply to receive the free energy-saving upgrades designed to lower carbon emissions and manage energy bills. This will help families phase out high carbon, fossil fuel heating and reduce fuel poverty.

To apply, visit the Energy Saving Trust website or call 0808 196 8255.

Applications will be assessed, with the installations coming to an end on Friday 31 March 2023, or when the funding has been exhausted. To learn more, and for eligibility criteria, read our press release.
