A resident has asked the Parish Council to draw attention to the free funding that is available from the UK Government towards insulating homes.
Applications to the £1 billion Great British Insulation Scheme are open, and according to the government, the funding could save eligible homeowners on average up to £400 a year on their energy bills.
The scheme aims to upgrade the least energy efficient homes in Great Britain. The scheme will enable up to 300,000 households in England, Scotland and Wales to add insulation to their homes to make them easier to heat for less.
The scheme is aimed at two main groups:
- Those living in homes with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating D-G and within council tax bands A-D in England and A-E in Scotland and Wales;
- Householders receiving qualifying benefits and living in homes with an EPC rating of D or below.
