Green homes grants
We have all been adversely affected by the global energy price hikes this year. Many householders are already seeing an increase of more than 50% on annual bills. A further increase is expected in October 2022.
Birmingham City Council is here to help you improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills. We have secured limited funding through the Government’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery scheme.
The scheme is delivered in partnership with Acivico Group, Act on Energy and Midlands Net Zero Hub. It is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as part of the UK government commitment to net zero by 2050.
Benefit from lower energy bills and save money
Through the scheme, households could benefit from a range of fully and partially funded energy efficiency home improvement measures to help reduce your energy consumption and reduce bills. The Energy Saving Trust has estimated that by adding loft insulation to a typical 3-bedroom semi-detached house, you could save around £255 on your energy bill each year, keeping more of your money in your pocket.
Measures covered by this scheme could include:
- loft insulation
- cavity wall insulation
- draft proofing
- replacement of single glazed, older windows/damaged windows and doors and/or Solar Panels.
Be aware that the funding available per house is limited subject to a suitability property survey.
