Apply for free energy efficiency upgrades

Portsmouth City Council, in partnership with 20 other local authority partners, has secured funding through the Sustainable Warmth funding competition, administered by the Government’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to offer funding to improve the energy efficiency of qualifying homes.

How the scheme works

The programme is open to owner occupiers and private rental tenants only. Funding is not available to local authority or housing association tenants. If you are in a private rental property, then a financial contribution from the landlord will be required and the landlord will be contacted about this following the application.

The programme is operating on a first-come, first serve basis and funding is only available until March 2023, so be sure to get your application in now to ensure you don’t miss out.
