Welcome to Green Grants Phase 3
You have reached this page because you have received combined communications from us, NEP, and your local authority inviting you to register for one or more energy efficiency improvements through Green Grants Phase 3. This scheme focuses on raising the energy efficiency of low-income homes through a fabric-first approach so they can become more comfortable to live in and less expensive to run.
We have now entered into Phase 3 of the Green Grants scheme. Phase 2 closed as of 31st March 2022.
Which councils are included in Phase 3 and what are they offering?
See below participating Phase 3 Nottinghamshire councils, and the grant funded energy home improvements they are delivering.
- Nottingham City Council – free External Wall Insulation, Loft Insulation, Cavity Wall Insulation, draught proofing
- Bassetlaw District Council – free External Wall Insulation, Loft Insulation, Cavity Wall Insulation and a few Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)
- Gedling Borough Council – free Solar PV, External Wall Insulation and Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)
- Rushcliffe Borough Council – Solar PV and External Wall Insulation
Please note, these councils identify their own target area(s) and households within their district/borough to receive these grant funded improvements. As it says in the communication you have received, your home falls within your council’s target area, however, you must also meet the scheme’s eligibility criteria.
What happens next?
More about the scheme…
Together, Nottingham Energy Partnership and Marches Energy Agency (MEA) are providing Customer Journey Support to select Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire local authorities. Both organisations will also determine whether households are also eligible for additional measures (i.e. loft insulation) or support services (i.e. a benefit check or registration on to the Priority Service Register).
Target households are typically old, poorly insulated properties that are expensive to heat and prone to damp and mould. All households within the target area will receive a letter outlining what energy improvement they can sign up to. The scheme is a mix tenure scheme – the individual authority decides whether they will target homeowners, private tenants and /or social tenants.
Nottingham Energy Partnership is fulfilling the role of marketing, sign up and after care for the following Nottinghamshire Council’s for Phase 3 of the scheme: Nottingham City Council, Gedling Borough Council, Rushcliffe Borough Council and Bassetlaw District Council.
Marches Energy Agency (MEA) is fulfilling the role of marketing, sign up and after care for following Derbyshire Council: Erewash District Council and Amber Valley Borough Council.
