Energy advice and grants
Grant funding sources for domestic buildings
Eligible households: owner occupied, social housing and private rented tenants
We have set a target to become a zero carbon town by 2040.
Currently residents living in Luton, can apply for a number of grants available from the government and energy companies to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. We are encouraging homeowners, tenants and landlords to apply for the relevant grant schemes, to help improve the overall fabric condition of the property first and foremost.
A vast majority of energy in homes is lost through the lack of insulation through the walls, floor and the roof. The long term effect this has to the home owner / occupier is that the home will require a lot more energy to heat the home and to keep it at a comfortable temperature compared to one which is well insulated. As energy prices are on the rise each year, more and more people are finding it difficult to heat their homes and are falling into fuel poverty.
We are working tirelessly to eradicate fuel poverty. In order for us to achieve this we have complied a list of current grants available, detailing:
- who can get them
- which energy improvement measures can be applied for and
- qualification criteria for applications
