Our fund is aimed at improving our least energy efficient homes socially rented homes, which have an energy performance certificate banding of D or below. An EPC will give a home a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). A very efficient home might have things like very good insulation in walls and roofs, an efficient heating system, or renewables like solar panels.

If we’ve contacted you about the programme, it means we’ve identified your home as being potentially eligible for funding, using the energy performance information we hold about your home.

Residents will receive the home energy efficiency improvements free of charge. The cost of installing energy improvements will be met by us and is part funded by the government’s social housing decarbonisation fund.

Energy improvements, like new windows and loft insulation, should make your home more energy efficient, meaning it stays warm for longer and is easier and cheaper to heat.

Our fund will focus on installing a range of insulation improvements such as wall and loft insulation and more efficient windows to improve the comfort of homes and reduce energy usage.

Each home will need to be surveyed to determine the most appropriate package of improvements.
The good news is, there are lots of improvements that will help residents stay warm and save energy. Some of the improvements we may be able to make are:

  • High performing, energy efficient windows and doors
  • Wall insulation (both internal, external insulation and cavity wall insulation)
  • Draught proofing
  • Loft insulation
  • Solar panels that generate free electricity

We have selected two delivery partners – Equans and Mulalley, to install energy improvements in homes.
