Retrofit and the Green Homes Grant

A zoom event on 12th October from 6.00 – 7.15pm. presented by the Highgate Society’s Sustainable Living group in partnership with the Muswell Hill Sustainability Group.

The Chancellor’s July Green Recovery statement included:

“£2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme for homeowners and landlords this year to pay for green improvements such as loft, wall and floor insulation providing at least £2 for every £1, up to £5,000 per household. For those on the lowest incomes, the scheme will fully fund energy efficiency measures of up to £10,000 per household.” Homes are classified according to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings, where A wastes very little energy and G is not a place where you would want to live!

It is not easy to find out the precise details of the scheme, even though all the work must be completed by 31stMarch 2021, so the Sustainable Living group has organised this event to help Highgate people to decide if they want to take up the offer. Further details are on the Sustainable Living Events page. Attendees who register on Eventbrite will be sent the zoom link before the meeting.
