The Sustainable Warmth Fund is being delivered in Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Wirral by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) in partnership with the local authorities, Everwarm and Next Energy.
The scheme aims to improve the energy performance of homes in order to save energy, keep homes warmer and reduce carbon emissions. It is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Eligible measures include loft, under floor, cavity wall, internal wall and external wall insulation and low carbon heating and energy systems such as heat pumps and solar panels. Works will be completed by March 2023
Who is eligible?
To be eligible, your household income must be below £30,000 a year or the Minimum Income Standard.
Funding is available for homes with the lowest energy efficiency. Eligible homes must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of Band E, F or G. A limited number of Band D properties are also eligible. You can check your home’s EPC on the EPC Register (www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate). If your home does not have a valid EPC, Everwarm can generate a new one free of charge.
Funding is available for owner-occupied and private rented homes. If you are an eligible owner-occupier, you won’t need to contribute anything to the financial cost of the works. For private rented properties, landlords must contribute at least 1/3 of the total cost of the works to the home. Everwarm can liaise with your landlord on your behalf. If you are a social housing tenant, you can find more information about the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) here.
