Different funding and grants are available in different areas based on circumstances and the energy efficiency of your home. All of these schemes are in place to improve the energy efficiency of properties in the UK as part of the Government’s net zero pledge.

What’s included?

Solar Panels for your home

Solar Panels are installed on your roof as part of the scheme to help you generate your own clean energy and save on your energy costs. You can also sell any unused electricity back to the grid.

Energy efficient heating system

Your new energy efficient heating system will produce four units of energy for every unit of electricity it absorbs. You could save thousands on your energy bills and your solar panels will help to power your home heating system.

Insulation for your home

Insulation is installed in your home as part of the scheme which can include roof, underfloor and wall insulation. Did you know that 35-45% of heat is lost through poor wall insulation, 20% through your roof and 10% through the floor?

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

We like to provide as much information as possibe to help you with your requests. Below is a list of our Frequently Asked Questions, but if there’s something else you need to know, please just get in touch and we will be happy to help. 

Will I still own my roof if I get solar panels?

You will own all of the energy saving measures outright from day 1. No rental agreements, no contracts, nothing. You will still own your home and will not have any problems selling your property. In fact, we have found that these energy prices can actually increase the value of your home.

Do I have to be on benefits to be eligible for this?
You don’t have to be on benefits to be eligible for this scheme. If your total household income is below £31,000 OR somebody in your home is in receipt of a means-tested benefit then you are eligible.
Is this scheme completely free?
The are currently a number of energy efficiency grant schemes available in the UK. These are backed by the UK Government and are funded by the big 6 energy suppliers and the UK Government.

Local Authority (LAD) scheme, Home Upgrade Grant (HUG), Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) scheme. We work with a range of installers across the UK to help deliver these schemes for free to UK residents.

Different funding and grants are available in different areas based on circumstances and the energy efficiency of your home. All of these schemes are in place to improve the energy efficiency of properties in the UK as part of the Government’s net zero pledge.

Who is eligible for the scheme?

There are over 3.5 million homes across the UK eligible for the scheme. We have a simple eligibility checker which tells you in just 30 seconds whether you are eligible for the scheme. We do not require any personal information to tell you whether you are eligible.

Do Solar Panels still work in the UK?

We use Solar PV panels which rely on daylight, not sunlight to generate power. Whislt there is less sunlight during the winter, Solar PV panels still generate vast amounts of clean energy to use in your home. 

How efficient are Air Source Heat Pumps?
Air source heat pumps typically have an efficiency rate of 300%, though the best ones can reach much higher rates.

This means that on average, your air source heat pump will produce three units of energy for every unit of electricity it absorbs.

To put this in context, the average UK home uses just over 12,000 kWh per year for heating, and your heat pump would be able to provide the same amount of heat from just 4,000 kWh.

Do Air Source Heat Pumps still work in the winter?

Modern air source heat pumps are efficient both in the winter and summer, thanks to an outstanding SCOP (seasonal coefficient of performance). You will find that despite some slight fluctuations, they can run efficiently year-round.

Do Air Source Heat Pumps make lots of noise?

Unless the heat pump is working very hard (ie in cold weather or producing high temperature water), you can expect the noise to be a similar volume to a fridge.
