Bath & West Community Energy have again been contracted to help promote Bright Green Homes, which has received a further two years funding from the government’s Home Upgrade Grant: Phase 2 which runs until March 2025.

Bath and North East Somerset Council has partnered with Bristol City Council and North Somerset Council to secure £11m funding to support households across the three council areas to access funding for energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating in their homes as long as they meet certain criteria.

Eligible households will receive funding and support to install a range of energy saving and low carbon technologies including solar panels, loft, underfloor and wall insulation, air source heat pump, central heating systems and LED lighting. There is no cost for eligible owner occupiers, but landlords of private rented properties will need to contribute at least a third of the total cost of the upgrade.

Residents in Bath & North East Somerset who meet the eligibility criteria can go to the Energy at Home website (see button below) to complete the short registration form.

The scheme is administered by Bristol City Leap and a member of their team will contact you to confirm your eligibility for the funding and to discuss the next steps.

This is one of a number of energy-related home improvement and grant and loan schemes that are available to B&NES residents. More information can be found on the Energy at Home website.
