Thanet Property owners now eligible for FREE Energy upgrades...

As the CEO of EPC Choice, I, Chris Grant, am excited to share vital information about the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) offered by Thanet council. This initiative is a significant step towards energy efficiency, and at EPC Choice, we are poised to guide you through the process, starting with obtaining an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Body: Thanet Council's Initiative: Thanet Council is actively encouraging eligible households to apply for the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG), a program aimed at reducing energy bills through energy efficiency upgrades. This is especially crucial for homes not connected to the gas network. Improvements covered include free insulation, low carbon heating, and clean heating systems, aligning with the Government’s 2050 Net Zero commitment.

Eligibility Criteria: To be eligible, your home should primarily be off the mains gas grid, and your household income should meet certain thresholds. Additionally, your property needs to be classified as 'hard to heat', a determination made based on your home's Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

The Role of EPC Choice: This is where EPC Choice comes into play. An EPC is not just a formality; it's a roadmap to understanding your home's energy efficiency and potential improvements. Our team at EPC Choice specializes in providing detailed, accurate EPC assessments, ensuring you can confidently apply for the HUG.

The Application Process: Managed by EoN, the scheme uses local installers to guide you through the application process. Part of this includes an EPC assessment, which is pivotal in identifying the most beneficial upgrades for your home. We at EPC Choice are ready to assist you in this critical step.

Council's Commitment: Cllr Helen Whitehead emphasizes the grant's role in supporting lower-income residents, reducing fuel poverty, and contributing to Thanet’s climate commitments. With rising fuel costs, the scheme offers a valuable opportunity to enhance home energy efficiency, save on bills, and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Conclusion: To explore your eligibility and take the first step towards a more energy-efficient home, an EPC assessment is crucial. Contact EPC Choice for a comprehensive EPC assessment, paving the way for your successful HUG application.
