With Ofgem’s announcement of a rise in the energy price cap from April 2022, residents in Hertsmere are being encouraged to check if they are eligible to receive help under a new scheme that has been recently launched which could help to help local householders to offset the impact of any increases in their energy bills, be warmer in their homes and lower their carbon emissions.
Under the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery scheme, delivered by Warmworks on behalf of Hertsmere Borough Council and through funding from the UK Government, householders can apply to receive improvements to increase the comfort and warmth in their home.
The scheme offers a wide range of insulation measures and renewable heating technologies which are designed to support homes to reduce their impact on the environment, including air source, ground source, and hybrid heat pumps.
The Green Homes Grant scheme is open to homeowners, private tenants and people in social rented accommodation, where the home has a low energy rating and a low annual income.
Warmworks will arrange a survey in the homes of eligible householders to agree the work that will be carried out. An accredited and registered sub-contractor team then completes the installation of the agreed heating and energy-efficiency measures, before an independent inspection assesses the completed work against rigorous quality standards. Where required, Warmworks will also then arrange for a full annual service to be completed 12 months later.
You can find out if you are eligible for the scheme by completing the short application form at http://surveys.est.org.uk/s/GreenHomesGrantSchemeLAD or by calling 0808 196 8255. Read the full press release.
