Green Island Grant
The Green Island Grant gives a great opportunity for Isle of Wight households to cut energy bills, keep warmer and reduce their impact on the environment.
The Isle of Wight Council has made a successful application to the Local Authority Delivery scheme and has been awarded £500,000 by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to support and improve the energy performance of eligible Island homes.
The IW Council has teamed up with the local Footprint Trust charity to deliver the project and help people through the process of applying for this local grant. They are looking for owner occupiers and landlords who would like their properties to have a green makeover. The total grant available is up to £10,000 per household, and landlords can get a two thirds subsidy of up to a maximum of £5,000 per property.
This could fund; insulation, a green heating system such as a heat pump, draught proofing, double glazing, solar panels and other energy efficiency measures.
Eligible households must have;
- A combined income of less than £30,000 per year
- An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G
The Green Island Grant can provide funding for a range of energy efficiency measures including, but not limited to;
- solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
- air source or ground source heat pump
- solar thermal
- double or secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
- upgrading to energy efficient doors
- hot water tank/appliance tank thermostats/heating controls
- biomass boilers
- The installation or repair of fossil fuel heating systems (gas, oil, LPG, coal) are not permitted under this grant scheme.
All work must be completed by Monday 15th March 2021.
