Sustainable Warmth Cumbria Grants:


Sustainable Warmth Cumbria Grants: Sustainable Warmth Cumbria Grants (

Cumbrian district councils have secured funding to run the Sustainable Warmth scheme, which aims to install energy saving measures into over 1,300 homes across Cumbria.

You could be eligible for a grant up to £25,000 towards insulation and low carbon heating measures, if your household income is below £30,000 and your home has a low energy performance.

The scheme offers a range of energy efficiency improvements such as solid wall and cavity wall insulation, heat pumps, solar panels, underfloor insulation and first-time double glazing.

The grant is even available for private landlords to apply for qualifying tenants with up to £5,000 of funding available.
