How the Grant Works

The first step to applying for a grant is firstly to check if your property is eligible.

The first step to applying for a grant under the Sustainable Warmth scheme is firstly to check if your property is eligible.

If you don't know your current EPC rating, you can take a look at Find your Energy Certificate and see if your property is listed. If no EPC is listed for your property, but neighbouring properties of a similar nature appear to qualify, it is worth giving us a call as we have limited funding to undertake EPC assessments on your behalf.

If your income is also underneath the annual household threshold of £31,000 per year then please make contact with our Team to run through an initial application form. The HUG2 scheme will be running until March 2025.

Once an application has been made, your case will be referred to our Contractors who will arrange a convenient time with you to come and undertake an assessment of your property. 

Once the assessment has been done, a Retrofit Plan will be produced which makes a series of recommendations specific to your property which will improve its energy efficiency performance in line with the funding available. The details of this plan will be discussed with you by one of our Team prior to an offer letter being sent out.

Once measures have been agreed and we have received a signed offer letter the work will need to be approved by DESNZ.  Once this approval has been obtained we will instruct the Contractors to undertake the works. This will require additional technical surveys and inspections to be carried out depending on the particular measures being installed. The average timeframe for completion of all works varies but is typically between three and six months depending from the point the contractor has been instructed.

Further inspections visits may be undertaken by our Team both during installations and after the completion of all measures for quality monitoring purposes. Upon completion, a pack containing all relevant aftercare information and certifications will be provided to you.
