Fareham residents can once again apply for free upgrades, worth up to £38,000 per household, to make their homes more energy efficient.

How much funding can I receive?

Eligible households can receive home energy improvements worth up to £38,000 to make their homes more efficient. For example, solar panels usually cost £6,000 to install, but you won't have to pay anything for them through this funding, and they can save you over £500 per year. Solid wall insulation, which can cost up to £10,000, can also be installed for free and save you up to £500 a year. Air source heat pumps, which are worth £14,000, can be installed for free and save you up to £1,000 a year. By taking part in this programme, you get these installations at no cost, and they will help you save money on your energy bills.

What happens next?

  3. Following your survey, you will receive a 'Quote Pack' from your installer which will include a no-cost quote and details of the proposed work. The no-cost quote provides confirmation that the measure(s) are fully funded.

  5. If approved, the installer will be in touch to arrange your installation date. Your installation date will depend on your installer's availability.
