District households eligible for share of £1bn national insulation scheme

Households in Bromsgrove District could be saving hundreds of pounds on energy under the £1 billion Great British Insulation Scheme, now running.

The government scheme offers people in less energy-efficient, lower council tax band homes vital upgrades - such as loft or cavity wall insulation - which could cut their annual energy bill by an average of between £300-£400.

Homes in council tax bands A-D that have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or below could be eligible.

Bromsgrove District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Climate Change, Cllr Steve Colella, said: “A lot of people will be thinking about heating and fuel bills during the colder months and this government scheme is designed to help people in eligible homes to heat their homes using less energy and save money. People in the district should be aware of it. It only takes a moment to check if you are eligible.”

A quick Great British Insulation Scheme eligibility check is required to confirm whether a referral can be made to the household’s energy supplier for the support. After that, the energy supplier would confirm what measures could be available under the scheme, any financial contribution the householder may have to make, and then deliver the work.

The online eligibility checker is available now, or for people who cannot use the online service, the helpline is 0800 098 7950.
