Apply for a Green Homes Grant

Subject to eligibility, a central government funded grant of up to £10,000 is available to households in South Derbyshire to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, reduce energy use and save on home heating bills. The householder is not expected to contribute financially to the award.

South Derbyshire District Council has selected Westville Insulation Ltd to deliver energy saving measures in homes and we can offer loft, cavity wall and external wall insulation works to any home in South Derbyshire meeting the following criteria:-

  • Total household annual income is below £30,000 gross.
  • Property has a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G. Click here to check - find your energy perforamnce certificate.

If your home does not have an EPC, you are still able to apply as this can be organised on your behalf.

The grant will be offered subject to the eligibility criteria being met and a property survey confirming suitability.

Private Landlords are eligible for assistance, with a 33 per cent contribution required from the landlord towards costs, up to £5000 contribution to the total fee. If you are a private tenant, please discuss your application with your landlord before applying for this grant as because the scheme is intended to help the householder save on heating costs, your landlord is unable to apply directly for this funding.
