Council secures energy efficiency grants for local people

Horsham District Council is delighted to be part of a successful bid for funding to extend the Government’s Green Home Grant, Local Authority Delivery (LAD) Scheme across West Sussex, enabling local residents to fund energy efficient improvements for their homes.

Residents can apply for this funding if:

  • They have a household income of less than £30,000 a year
  • Their home has a low energy efficiency rating (G, F, or E rating)
  • Solid Wall Insulation
  • Solar PV panels
  • Low Carbon Heating
  • Insulation if you live in a Park Home
  • Smart Heating Controls

As part of the Local Authority Delivery Scheme, private and social landlords will be able to access up to £5,000 with a one-third contribution.

Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Community Matters and Wellbeing Cllr Tricia Youtan said:

As a council we are delighted to have been part of this successful bid to secure funding for those households in our District that most need support.

For the first time, eligible householders will be able to install solar photovoltaic systems to generate their own green electricity.

Being able to afford household energy bills and make necessary improvements will have long-term benefits to residents’ finances and wellbeing, as well as delivering key benefits for the local environment.

This funding is time-limited so residents meeting the criteria shouldn’t delay in applying for the grant.”
