East Riding Future Energy Scheme grants available
Mon, 23 May 2022

The council has recently been awarded funding from The Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to install fully funded air source heating systems and other energy saving measures in private sector properties.

The project is aimed at households who are living in their own homes and have either storage heating, portable heaters, coal, LPG or oil heating in their home at present. The household must also have an energy performance rating of E, F, or G and fulfil an eligibility assessment of the property and income threshold.

The principle aim of the scheme is to improve the energy performance of homes through the installation of a new air source heat pump as well as insulation and ventilation upgrades, which will help to keep warmer throughout all the home.

An air source heat pump extracts energy from the outside air, even at the coldest time of the year, to provide heat to the home through radiators. The system also includes a new hot water cylinder to provide hot water. The heat pump is classed as a renewable system.

Fully funded systems are available subject to the eligibility of the applicant and on a first come, first served basis. All the work would be completed by approved installers who will keep disruption to a minimum.
