I’m contacting you to let you know about a new grant that is available for North Yorkshire residents to help them make their homes more energy efficient.

I have some information you can share with your communities (by email, on your website or any social media pages) and the attached poster can be displayed on any noticeboards you may have. Printed copies of this poster are also available. To request copies please call our partners, YES Energy Solutions on 01422 880 100 or fill in this online form to arrange this.

This is the information you can share with your residents:

A new grant is available for North Yorkshire residents to help make homes more energy efficient.

The Home Upgrade Grant phase 2 (HUG2) is available to help homes that are not on mains gas and have poor quality insulation and inefficient heating systems.

The grant can be used for improvements such as insulation and solar panels to air source heat pumps and smart heating controls.

These will help save money on energy bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

To qualify for the new scheme residents must have a household income of £31,000 or less and/or meet other eligibility checks.

Properties must also be technically suitable for the measures available in the scheme and have a low energy efficiency rating (between D and G on an energy performance certificate).

Private rented properties are eligible to apply although landlords must contribute at least a third of the total cost of the upgrade.

This scheme is now open and we are working with community interest company YES Energy Solutions who will deliver the improvements to homes. They can be contacted by calling 01422 880 100 or visit the YES energy solutions page to find out more. You can also visit our website to register your details to find out more about the scheme.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks in advance for sharing this information with your community.

Kind regards
