Grants and support England

There are a number of schemes available to help with the cost of fitting energy-saving improvements in your home. Find out more below. 

ECO (Energy Company Obligation)

ECO provides funding from the larger energy suppliers to support energy improvements for people on certain benefits, for hard-to-treat properties and for households in the poorest parts of the country.

Feed-in Tariffs (FITs)

FITs can provide on-going financial support for people generating electricity from renewable sources such as solar PV and wind. More information >

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The domestic RHI can give you regular payments over seven years if you install an eligible renewable heating system, such as a biomass boiler or heat pump. 

Local authorities

Some local authorities may also provide energy-saving grants or other offers for local residents to install certain energy efficiency measures in their home. Call your local authority to see if there is any help available in your area.

London Boiler Cashback Scheme

The Mayor of London’s London Boiler Cashback Scheme was launched on 2 February 2016. The scheme is offering home owners and private landlords in the capital £400 cashback to replace their inefficient boiler - cutting energy bills and carbon emissions, and improving air quality. Funds are limited and allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis. Further information, including details of how to apply, can be found here
