ThamesWey’s long-standing domestic energy efficiency project, Action Surrey, has reached a major milestone after completing the 500th energy efficiency measure installation as part of its ‘Green Jump Surrey’ scheme.
The Green Jump Surrey initiative launched in late 2020 after Action Surrey was awarded £9.3m of funding to deliver home energy efficiency retrofits from the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) ‘Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery’ scheme.
The fund has helped over 400 Surrey households to receive the energy efficiency measures most suitable to needs of their property, with many more Surrey residents set to benefit. So far, a projected £100,000 will be wiped from fuel bills each year with the average household saving £249. This is almost 5,000 kWh of energy or 1.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, saved per household.
Green Jump Surrey enabled eligible low-income households to claim up to £15,000 per property to winter proof their homes and slash fuel bills. A wide range of energy efficiency measures were available to reflect the varying needs of Surrey’s housing stock. These measures include insulation for solid walls, cavity walls, lofts, park homes and floors; renewables, low carbon heating systems and more.
