The government has made £6.2 million available to help Surrey households save money on energy bills. The funding for Green Jump Surrey will provide eligible households up to £15,000 to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, helping reduce our collective carbon footprint.
In addition to the government’s grant, Surrey County Council is contributing £750,000 to the Green Jump Surrey project as top-up funding to cover the full cost of works.
Eligible owner occupied households can use the funding to install energy efficiency improvements including loft, solid wall, cavity wall and park home insulation, to keep their home warm. Air source heat pumps and solar hot water systems can also be funded in addition to insulation works, to further help save on energy bills and reduce carbon emission.
Private and social housing landlords can receive up to £5,000 to cover two thirds of the cost of installing solid wall insulation.
If you are living in a hard-to-heat home and either in receipt of a means tested benefit or have a total gross annual household income of less than £30,000, you could be eligible for funding.
Funding is time limited, so contact Action Surrey on 0800 783 2503 or at www.actionsurrey.org/enquiries as soon as possible.
Grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and will be monitored by Action Surrey, which is delivering the project on behalf of Tandridge District Council.
