In July 2020 the government announced a £2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme, £500 million of which was allocated to local authorities to improve the energy efficiency of homes of low-income households by installing insulation measures and renewable heating technologies.
The ‘Green Homes Grant’ is available to Wyre residents. The grant is worth up to £10,000 per property and eligible measures are free for owner-occupiers. This means that you could get your home winter-ready and the Cosy Homes in Lancashire (CHiL) initiative will pick up the bill to help you get warmer, and stay warmer in future for less money.
If you and your property are eligible, the following energy efficient measures may be covered by the grant:
- insulation (solid wall insulation, loft/cavity, room in roof and underfloor)
- renewable heating technologies
- energy efficient external doors and window upgrades (single glazed to double glazed)
You can apply online or call 03306 061 488 (local rate) so eligibility can be established and the process explained to you.
