Grants of up to £25,000 are now available for eligible Surrey residents to help make their homes warmer and more energy efficient.

People living in hard to heat homes and on lower incomes, could receive grants between £10,000 and £25,000 to improve insulation and install renewable technology - helping to save energy, reduce emissions and combat rising energy prices. Improvement measures include loft insulation, cavity and external wall insulation, underfloor insulation and renewables, such as solar electricity panels.

Residents can check if they are eligible by visiting the Action Surrey website or calling them on 0800 783 2503. 

Marisa Heath, Cabinet Member for Environment at Surrey County Council and Runnymede Borough Councillor for Englefield Green East said,

We know this is a challenging time for many and we’re really pleased to be offering this funding to our residents who need our support the most. 

Improving the energy efficiency of homes in Runnymede and across Surrey will also help us achieve our goal to be a net zero county by 2050.  

I encourage residents to check if they are eligible as soon as possible.

Funding totalling £11.9m has been awarded through central Government to Surrey County Council, leading on behalf of the local authorities across the county. The project will be delivered and managed by Action Surrey – an energy efficiency advice service set up in partnership with Runnymede Borough Council and all Surrey local authorities.
