People living in hard to heat homes and on lower incomes could receive grants between £10,000 and £25,000 to improve insulation and install renewable technology - helping to save energy, reduce emissions and combat rising energy prices.  

Improvement measures include loft insulation, cavity and external wall insulation, underfloor insulation and renewables, such as solar electricity panels.  

Residents can check if they are eligible for the Sustainable Warmth scheme by visiting the Action Surrey website actionsurrey.org, or calling them on 0800 783 2503.   

Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Environment and Health Cllr Colin Dougan, said: “We know this is a challenging time for many, and we’re pleased to part of the partnership offering this funding to our residents who are most in need.   

“Improving the energy efficiency of homes in Surrey Heath will help us achieve our goal of reaching net zero by 2050.    

“Please do check if you are eligible and apply for the funding as soon as possible.”   

Funding totalling £11.9m has been awarded through central Government to Surrey County Council, leading this project on behalf of the local authorities across the county. The project will be delivered and managed by Action Surrey – an energy efficiency advice service set up in partnership with all Surrey local authorities.  

Funding is time-limited, and installations must be completed by the end of March 2023.
