Residents in Norwich are being urged to apply for free installation of measures that could help reduce their energy bills.
The city council is working with E.ON to deliver these improvements, at no cost to eligible households, but time is running out to access the scheme and spaces are limited. Anyone who may benefit is encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
The measures available include insulation, solar panels and heat pumps.
The eligibility criteria include: owning your own home; having a total household income of £31,000 or less OR someone in your home receives a means-tested benefit; and living in an energy inefficient home (Energy Performance Certificate of D or below).
Don't worry if your home doesn't have an EPC, you can still apply, you will just need to fill in some extra details which E.ON will help with.
The funding to support private homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their properties comes from a £3.7m government grant and forms part of the council’s Sustainable Warmth Strategy.
Fill out your details in EON’s grant finder to apply. Or you can call E.ON on 0333 202 4820
Councillor Emma Hampton, Cabinet member for climate change and digital inclusion at Norwich City Council, said:
“Spiralling energy costs are putting huge pressure on household budgets and too many people live in cold and draughty homes that are far too expensive to heat adequately.
“Through our partnership with E.ON we are offering low income households the opportunity to make their homes warmer and cheaper to run, at zero cost to residents.
“Please apply as soon as possible if you think you could benefit.”
