Free Energy Saving Schemes

There are a number of free schemes and initiatives available to Portsmouth, Gosport and Havant residents. From free gas central heating systems and installation to expert advice and home visits. See what you are eligible for and stay Switched On.

Understanding the different schemes


Portsmouth City Council works closely with the Local Energy Advice Partnership (LEAP for short) to offer eligible residents a completely FREE energy and money saving service.

We can help to save you money and keep your home warm and cosy.

The service is available to residents living in Portsmouth Gosport and Havant.


Eligible residents are being offered free gas central heating systems and installation as part of a new Portsmouth City Council initiative.

New gas central heating systems can save you hundreds of pounds on your energy bills and keep your home warm for less.

Normally you would have to pay up to £6,000 for a new central heating system to be installed in your house. But through Portsmouth City Council you don’t have to pay anything!


ECHO (Emergency Central Heating Offer) offers emergency assistance to those who need it. If you have a broken or condemned boiler you may be eligible for help.

During the winter, a lack of heating and hot water can have a severe impact on your health and well being.


We have teamed up with uSwitch to get Portsmouth residents switched on to saving money on energy bills.

It’s quick and easy to compare different gas and electricity suppliers to help find the cheapest energy prices. Switch to a better deal and cut the cost of your bills. It really is that straight forward with uSwitch taking care of the switch process, so you don’t have to!
