Energy efficiency improvements to properties

Our aim is to be “net zero” by 2030. With this in mind, we’re carrying out lots of improvement works to properties across the city to make them more energy efficient. This includes things like changing heating sources and adding insulation and new windows. 

Social Housing Decarbonation Fund

The Government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) provides a funding pot of £850m for social housing providers across the country to upgrade the energy efficiency of their housing stock. 

We have secured funding toward the costs of upgrading 680 homes with measures including:

  • insulation
  • low carbon heating
  • solar panels

The properties were selected during the SHDF application process and had to meet the funding conditions, which included that the properties must have a low energy performance rating and the measures installed must bring the property up to an energy performance rating of EPC band C. 

Unfortunately, customers cannot apply individually for funding.

The projects will be delivered over the next couple of years and customers living in the selected properties will be informed of the proposed improvements at the appropriate time in the development of the work  

Concerns about energy efficiency

If you have concerns about the energy efficiency of your home or are struggling with energy bills, we can arrange for an Energy Saving Check-up from one of our trained officers who can give advice about how to save energy and water.
