Press Release

3 April 2024

More people can now plug into free energy efficiency measures

Many more residents in Fareham can now benefit from warmer homes that are cheaper to run, following a change to the eligibility rules for the Warmer Homes programme.

The maximum income threshold for the grant has been changed to £36,000, increasing the eligible pool of households who can access free energy saving upgrades by nearly 20%.

Therefore, Fareham residents with an annual household income of £36,000 or less, who do not use a gas boiler as their main source for heating are eligible for the Warmer Homes programme and can apply to receive free energy-saving upgrades. This includes residents that have a gas cooker, but use electric storage heaters, electric boilers, panel heaters, oil, coal, solid fuel or Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) for their heating.

Energy-saving upgrades could include insulation, air source heat pumps, solar panels and more. Eligible households can receive up to £38,000 of upgrades at no cost, through funding secured from the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero by a group of local authorities, including Fareham Borough Council.

The scheme will be open to applications until November 2024, with applications dealt with on a first come first serve basis.
