What we are doing to improve home energy efficiency and how you can get help to improve your home.
Home energy efficiency schemes
Warmer Homes programme
We've teamed up with other councils in Hampshire to help residents make their home more energy efficient.
If you are eligible, you can get money from the Warmer Homes programme to improve your home.
The scheme runs until March 2025.
Hitting the cold spots service
This service provides advice to residents on heating, insulation, energy bills, smart meters and switching energy tariffs.
It also has a small budget to help residents with heating repairs and can provide portable heaters if a heating system breaks.
For more information, visit the Hitting the cold spots web page on Hampshire County Council's website.
The Environment Centre
The centre provides up-to-date information on energy saving schemes and general energy saving advice.
For more information, visit the Environment Centre website.
Home improvement grants
We offer discretionary home improvement grants of up to £5,000.
You can use these grants to replace inefficient or defective central heating systems and boilers. You will need to be on a means-tested benefit or low income to qualify for help.
To find out more, please contact our private sector housing team using the contact details on this page.
Great British Insulation Scheme
A scheme to help lower the cost of heating your home, by adding insultation for free or at a discount. Anyone can apply, as long as your home is:
- In a lower council tax band (A to D)
- Rated as with an energy performance certificate D to G
For more information and to apply, please visit the Great British Insulation Scheme pages on GOV.UK.
iChoosr - Solar Together
The Solar Together scheme is an opportunity for you to install quality solar panels at a competitive price for your home or small business. It is a group buying scheme where it aims to take the hassle out of finding a solar installer and give you a high quality service.
If you already have solar panels installed, you can also register to have battery storage added to your system.
Hampshire County Council and ourselves have been working with iChoosr, who run the scheme.
Greater South East Energy Hub
We are working with the Greater South East Energy Hub under the Green Homes Scheme to help residents to the energy efficiency of their homes through funding from The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Tackling climate change
Helping people to make their homes more energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions is important to us as part of our commitment to tackling climate change. We want to work with landlords, tenants and partners to identify households that are fuel poor, or whose homes are not energy efficient.
