Residents on low incomes may be able to get free energy-saving improvements to make their homes cheaper, warmer and greener.
Green Homes funding is a Government grant run by Eon Energy to help households on a lower income warm their homes while saving money on energy bills and helping to reduce carbon emissions.
To be eligible to for the grant, households must have an income of under £30,000 or be on means-tested benefits. The energy-saving improvements include insulation and ventilation upgrades, changing to a low carbon heating system, energy efficient lighting and lots more.
(suggestion only) Sevenoaks District Council’s Cabinet Member for Cleaner and Greener, Cllr Margot McArthur, says: “The cost of living crisis has affected many people over the last year and energy costs have soared. This scheme will help residents on low incomes with a range of free energy saving improvements, helping to cut their energy use.
“The Green Home grants don’t just help save on energy, they can also reduce a households’ carbon footprint to help residents live more sustainably.”
