Green Homes Grant - local authority scheme

Save on your energy bill

Do you want to save on your energy bill and ensure that your home is warm in the winter and cool in the summer?

The Green Homes Grant: Local authority delivery scheme (GHG:LAD), funded by the secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy, is here to help.

Seven London boroughs have joined together to carry out smart energy efficiency retrofits on up to 700 homes across the participating boroughs.

Those living in the coldest and least efficient properties may be eligible for up to £10,000 of grant funding. This is to cover the installation of efficiency measures, such as low carbon heating systems, insulation, and smart heating controls.
