Hambleton District Council has secured Government funding to help residents improve the warmth and efficiency of their homes.

The North Yorkshire Home Efficiency Fund is offering a range of fully funded energy saving home improvements to eligible homeowners. The amount of funding available could be up to £25,000, however most properties will receive upgrades up to the value of £10,000.  

Private renting tenants are also able to apply, however landlords must contribute one third of the total costs.

The property type will dictate the improvements householders can receive which may include insulation, solar panels, air source heat pumps and high heat retention electric storage heaters.

With energy bills at an all-time high, the council is providing this scheme to help residents save money whilst keeping warm.

Hambleton is working with energy experts YES Energy Solutions to help residents qualify for the scheme.

To qualify, residents must have a household income of £30,000 or less, or receive means tested benefits.

Properties must also be technically suitable for the measures available in the scheme and have a low energy efficiency rating.

Councillor David Webster portfolio holder for planning said: “We are pleased to be able to bring this scheme to Hambleton and to homes where energy inefficiency in properties is high and where households may struggle to make the required improvements to their homes without financial help.

Residents interested in the scheme are encouraged to call YES Energy Solutions on 01422 880 100.
