Green Homes Grant

The Havering Council Green Homes programme is funded by national Government and other sources, as part of the national drive to reduce carbon emissions. 

We are working in partnership with Happy Energy ltd to bring healthier, warmer and more comfortable homes to you and have written to several household we have identified as possibly being eligible for the grant

If your home has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G, which often results in high energy bills, you may be eligible for a significant grant of up to £10,000, to install renewable energy or insulation upgrades, to help keep you warmer whilst reducing your energy bills and carbon emissions. 

In order to be eligible for the grant, your total gross household income must be below £30,000 per annum.

Or alternatively, after deducting tax, national insurance your mortgage (or rent) payments and council tax, your income is below £20,000 per year. 

The energy and CO2 upgrades that you may be able to receive in your house include:

  • an upgrade to a renewable energy heat pump heating system
  • solid or cavity wall insulation
  • solar PV (to generate free electricity)
  • loft or roof insulation

Please note, these grants may not be suitable, or available for flats, maisonettes, or other properties which are leasehold, rather than freehold and all works and grants are subject to survey, eligibility and terms and conditions.

The upgrades offered will be based on the results of our free whole house survey.

All grant applications and works are made and managed seamlessly on your behalf by our managing agent Happy Energy Solutions Ltd, who also manage all of the installation works.

After the whole house survey you will be given a choice of upgrades that are suitable for your property and you can choose if you want to go ahead.

If you own your property you will pay nothing. 

If you rent, get into contact with your landlord and tell them about this programme as providing you qualify they could be entitled to grants up to £5000 and it will only cost them one third of any upgrades installed.
