Warmth grant for eligible households and private landlords

2 November 2022

Thurrock Council is working with an Essex-wide energy partner called Warmworks to help eligible households in the borough become more energy efficient.

To be eligible for the scheme, either your home must be rated as Energy Performance Certificate E, F or G, or you must have a household incomed below £30,000.

Cllr Luke Spillman, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "This is a wonderful offer for those living in properties who are eligible and help for private landlords, the funding is a grant that does not have to be repaid.

"Thurrock Well Homes team are identifying the properties that are known to the council as having a low Energy Performance Certificate, to work with residents in making their home more energy efficient.

"If our homes are running more efficiently, this will ultimately bring the energy bills down, which is some relief given the current cost of living."

Improvement measures available by the grant include:

  • insulation
  • low carbon heating systems
  • solar panels
  • ventilation
  • energy efficient lighting

Gas and oil boilers are excluded from this specific funding.

The funding covers the cost of improvements up to £10,000 for properties that are on the mains gas supply, and up to £25,000 for homes that are not on the mains gas supply.

There is funding available for private landlords. However, a 33% contribution from the landlord is required and the maximum funding per property is £5,000.
