Grants for home energy measures

Low income households in North Somerset who do not have gas central heating may be eligible for a new round of government funding to install a wide range of energy-saving, low carbon heating measures in their homes.

The Bright Green Homes project will deliver energy efficient and cost-saving measures which also reduce carbon emissions, as part of North Somerset Council’s commitment to tackling the climate emergency.
