Warwickshire residents urged to apply for Green Home Grant

Rugby Editorial 28th Oct, 2020   0

WARWICKSHIRE residents are being encouraged to consider applying for grants to make their homes more energy efficient – and save hundreds on their bills.

Homeowners and landlords can apply for a voucher towards the cost of installing energy-efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to homes, which could help save up to £600 a year on energy bills, through the government’s Green Home Grant Scheme.

The government will provide vouchers to help cover up to two-thirds of the cost of qualifying improvements, to a maximum value of £5,000.

Homeowners or those with a member of the household who receive one of the qualifying means-tested benefits, may be able to receive a grant covering 100 per cent of the cost of the improvements, to a maximum value of £10,000.




​Warwickshire County Council’s heritage, culture and environment spokeswoman Coun Heather Timms said: “Though it may not seem like it right now, the threat of climate change remains one of the biggest challenges faced by humanity in the modern world.

“The challenges we face through the changing climate of our planet can only be overcome through a concerted effort on all our parts to reduce our consumption of fossil fuels and thereby minimising our carbon footprints.


“Warwickshire County Council has made leaps and bounds in reducing its own carbon footprint and we are now calling on our residents to think about the things that they can do to benefit the cause.

“The government’s Green Home Grants are a great place to start as they help our homes become more environmentally-friendly while also helping residents to save money on the energy bills.”

Residents must redeem their voucher and ensure improvements are completed by March 31, 2021.
