Gov’t funding could cut bills for 20,000 homes

A raft of funding announced by the Government this week could potentially reduce energy bills for up to 20,000 UK homes.

A £179 million cash boost will be used to deliver 69 projects, including energy efficiency upgrades, to social housing developments across the country.

The upgrades could help support an estimated 9,000 green jobs and deliver carbon emissions savings of up to 6,000 tonnes. 

Minister for Business and Energy Lord Callanan said: “The UK has a strong track record in improving the energy performance of its homes and this funding will continue that as we deliver huge benefits for social housing residents – ensuring they keep more of their cash.

“The £3.8 billion we’re investing through the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund is helping drive down energy bills for thousands, targeting help to those who need it most by making their homes warmer, more comfortable and greener.”
