East Hampshire residents can still access funds for energy improvements

gdealEast Hampshire residents can still benefit from help to fund energy efficient home improvements even though funding through the government’s Green Deal Home Improvement Fund has now been allocated and the scheme closed.

Residents can get help from East Hampshire District Council (EHDC), which is part of a separate scheme called Green Deal Communities. We have up to £3 million to allocate on a first come first served basis, so long as there’s money left in the pot, this scheme will continue to run until March 2015.

East Hampshire residents and landlords can access cashback to improve the energy efficiency of their homes through measures such as extra insulation, a new boiler and even solar panels.

By going through a simple process residents can get between 10% and 70% cashback on the cost of energy efficiency improvements.
The first step is a professional assessment, which tells you the best suited energy-saving measures for your property and how much you could save on bills.

If you don’t have savings to pay for the work you can arrange a Green Deal finance package, which is paid back through savings on your energy bill – this will still attract cashback.

Cllr Melissa Maynard, EHDC’s Portfolio Holder for Energy, said:

“I want to reassure East Hampshire residents that this great offer is still available to them.

“Our cashback scheme will reduce the cost of energy-saving measures. This is a popular scheme so don’t delay, register today and you won’t miss out. ”
