Greatwell Homes have received £664,000 from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund to improve the insulation in 66 of our homes.
The grant will be match-funded and used on homes with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or lower to install additional loft and wall insulation to boost energy efficiency.
We will start the project in April 2023, with the completion of all works due to be done by 2025. Those customers who will benefit from the scheme will be contacted over the next couple of months.
Denise Lewis, Executive Director at Greatwell Homes, said: “We are committed to increasing the number of our homes with an EPC rating of C and above and the funding from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero will certainly help us do this.
“It is great news that we are able to better insulate these 66 homes and we will continue to look at future opportunities to increase efficiency in more of our homes.”
Lord Callanan, Minister for Energy Efficiency and Green Finance, said: “This investment will help thousands of households to heat their homes for less, keep them warm for longer and could save hundreds on their annual energy bill.
“The green energy sector is growing, and this funding will support green jobs and provide the training needed to deliver these vital upgrades to homes.”
In our Live green strategy, we commit to making homes more energy efficient with 95% of our homes to have an EPC rating of C and above by 2025. You can find more about our Live green objectives here: https://livegreatwell.com/live-green/
