NEW Sustainable home grants launched

Many Hart residents can now get help with their rising energy bills with an average grant £10,000 for sustainable home improvements.  

The new Sustainable Warmth Fund, supported by Hart District Council, covers up to 100% of the costs for various energy-saving improvements such as installing insulation, heating system upgrades, energy efficient hot water solutions, solar panels and energy efficient lighting (among other improvements). 

Households with incomes below £30K in poorly insulated homes are eligible for the improvements, which can be completed at no cost. Subsequently, significant savings could be made on future fuel bills, such as saving: 

  • £255 a year with installation of 270mm (from 0) of loft insulation for a semi-detached house* 
  • £450 a year (for those at home during the day) by installing solar panels* 
  • £910 a year by replacing an old (G-rated) gas boiler with an air source heat pump (in an average 4 bedroom detached property)* 

These savings could be much higher now with the recent fuel price increase.  

Cllr David Neighbour, Leader of Hart District Council, said: “We are pleased to launch this sustainable home grant to support those most in need. It is a great opportunity for households most likely to be impacted by the rising fuel bills, and not only will it save households money, but it will help reduce carbon emissions across the District too.” 

The whole journey of applying, home assessments and carrying out any works is straightforward and managed end to end on behalf of the council by its partner City Energy. All improvements are carried out by Trust-mark approved installers.
