Green Homes Grant - Kingswood Estate trial

In September, households will be able to download a voucher for the government green homes grant on a first-come-first-served basis. £5,000 grants (and up to £10,000 for low-income households) will be available to make your home warmer and more efficient.

In readiness, the council has teamed up with Better Housing, Better Health to offer the first 100 residents a free Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and home energy survey worth over £70! The survey will identify the suitability for your home to be upgraded so that you will be ready to claim your government voucher when the scheme opens in September. 

This trial scheme is limited to around 850 homes in the map area (Kingswood Estate) and residents will receive a letter with the details. In addition, one lucky resident will be able to claim free external wall insulation.
