Grants of up to £6,000 are available to make energy saving improvements to your home through Bath and North East Somerset Council’s Energy at Home scheme. This grant is available to all home owners, private landlords and privately renting tenants. You do not need to be on a low income or an elderly person to be eligible for this grant, but you do need to be signed up by the end of February.
It can be used to help cover the costs of improvements including:
Measures such as these can improve your home’s energy performance, reduce the amount you spend on your energy bills, and will help keep your home warm and cosy during winter.
The Energy at Home scheme provides free expert guidance on all aspects of home energy including: how to get the best deal on your energy bills; which energy saving improvements might be most appropriate for your home; and which grants and support are available to help you.
Cllr Martin Veal (Conservative, Bathavon North), Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “This home improvement grant is coming to an end very soon so I’d encourage residents to contact the Energy at Home Advice Service as soon as possible to find out what help they can get to improve their home’s energy performance.”
The Energy at Home scheme will continue to be available after this particular grant ends, with access to other local and national grants, however funding to this level, accessible for so many people, and for this range of measures is unlikely to be available again.
