Grants Available in Surrey
Funding is available for eligible households under a new government-funded project, offering insulation and solar panels.
Over £1 million has been awarded to the Action Surrey partnership of local authorities to help Surrey households save money on their energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
The funding is available through central Government's Green Homes Grant scheme and will provide eligible households with up to £10,000 of fully funded home improvements.
To be eligible for the funding:
A) your property needs to be considered hard to heat*
B) your household needs to meet one of the following criteria:
- - be in receipt of Universal Credit, Warm Home Discount, or Council Tax Reduction,
- - have an annual household income below £30,000 after automatic deductions (Tax/NI),
- - have an annual household income of £30,000 - £35,000 after automatic deductions (Tax/NI), where housing costs (mortgage payments, energy bills) reduce overall income to £20,000 per year.
*Hard-to-heat properties have an EPC rating of D, E, F or G. This certificate must be accurate and not expired. If your property does not have one (or it is expired/no longer accurate), Action Surrey can arrange this as part of the funding, providing your property meets the hard-to-heat criteria when speaking with an advisor.
Eligible owner-occupied households can use the funding to install a combination of the following energy efficiency improvements:
- Cavity wall insulation
- Loft insulation, including top-ups
- Solar photovoltaics (PV)
- Solar thermal hot water system
Please note that our installers are all accredited to the most up-to-date standards. Therefore, subject to survey, ventilation installation may also be required (e.g. mechanical extracts, trickle vents, positive input ventilation, etc). This will also be funded. Disruption will be minimal and outweighed by the long term benefits provided by the installation.
Funding is time limited, with applications open until the end of March 2022, so if you believe you are eligible, contact us as soon as possible on 0800 783 2503 or complete our online enquiry form to check your eligibility for support.
Our phones lines are open Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays.
