Energy efficiency

East Hampshire District Council has a commitment to addressing the climate crisis and help residents save energy use at home.

22% of UK carbon emissions come from domestic energy consumption. By reducing demand for energy at home, carbon emissions are lowered, helping to mitigate climate change.

By reducing your energy consumption, you will also save money on your energy bills and make your home more thermally comfortable - warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

General advice about energy efficiency measures at home can be found on the Energy Saving Trust website.

Funding schemes

As of July 2021, there are two schemes offering funding for eligible households:

ECO3

ECO3, the Energy Company Obligation is operated by OFGEM and covered by our ECO statement of intent.

GHG LAD

GHG LAD, the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery programme is delivered through the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy BEIS.

Eligibility

Your home may be eligible because it is particularly cold, or your household income is low, or someone in your household is vulnerable or has health issues.

Please contact our partners at AgilityEco for free confidential advice.

Whether or not you are eligible for funding, you should take care to choose the appropriate company to install retrofit energy efficiency measures in your home.

The council does not operate schemes directly.

Whilst the council cannot provide any guarantees or make any recommendations, we maintain a list of companies working locally.

All of the companies have signed a memorandum of understanding with the council in order to claim funding from obligated energy companies under the OFGEM ECO3 scheme. This list will be made available shortly.

If you have a complaint about any of the companies on the list, please contact trading standards.
