Surrey authorities awarded £3m to make homes more energy efficient

An additional £3m of funding has been awarded to councils across Surrey for an energy scheme which will support a further 300 eligible residents with up to £15k per household to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

In addition to the government’s grant, Surrey County Council is contributing up to £680k to the Green Jump Surrey project as top-up funding and more than 500 Surrey residents have already signed up to make their homes warmer, cut their energy bills and improve their green credentials

Ten local authorities are participating in the Green Jump Surrey project: Elmbridge, Epsom and Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley and Woking respectively.

The initiative is being monitored by Action Surrey, an impartial energy advice centre which was set up by councils across Surrey, including Surrey County Council, on behalf of partner local authorities.

Action Surrey helps residents save money on their energy bills and keep warm in their homes and has a network of trusted installers, all adhering to safety protocols to deliver the installations.

Eligible owner-occupied households can use the funding to install energy efficiency improvements including loft, solid wall, cavity wall, park home and underfloor insulation to keep their homes warm.

Air source heat pumps, solar hot water systems and solar photovoltaics can also be funded in addition to insulation works to further help save on energy bills and reduce carbon emissions.

Commenting, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change, Councillor Natalie Bramhall said: “Following the successful sign up of so many eligible households from right across Surrey for the initial tranche of funding, we are delighted that the Green Jump Surrey partnership has been awarded additional funding to support 300 more residents to make their home warmer, greener and cheaper to run.

“The funding will not only make a difference to people’s home comfort, but also helps tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions. I would encourage everyone to contact Action Surrey to check if they are eligible for funding and to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.”
