Green Living Leicestershire scheme

If your home has an Energy Performance Rating (EPC) of either D, E, F, or G and your household income is lower than £30,000 per annum you may be eligible for a grant through the Green Living Leicestershire scheme, which aims to raise the energy efficiency of low energy performance homes, including off-gas grid homes.

This grant can help you improve the warmth and comfort of your homes, whilst also reducing your energy bills and carbon emissions.

You can find out more about this local scheme delivered in partnership by the district and county council of Leicestershire on the Leicestershire County Council website
