You can find information about financial support on the West Sussex Affordable Energy website. It includes:

It also contains information about the Priority Services Register. This is available to anyone of pensionable age, living with a disability or chronic illness, or who has a visual or hearing impairment. It can provide access to free services, such as gas safety checks.

If you are living on a low income and are vulnerable to the cold, you could be eligible for a free Home Energy Advisor visit for advice on keeping warm and reducing your energy costs.

Check to see what other help and advice may be available in your area to help you stay warm and well.

Finding the best energy tariff for you

Make sure you are on the most economical tariff by reviewing your energy costs regularly and checking to see whether you can switch to a better deal. Switching to a renewable energy tariff could help you to reduce your impact on the environment too.

The West Sussex Affordable Energy website provides information about paying for energy and saving money by switching.

The Green Homes Grant scheme

This is a Government scheme offering funding to help you make your home more energy efficient.

Homeowners and landlords in England can apply for a Government voucher of up to £5,000 or £10,000 to help cover the cost of making specific energy efficiency improvements to homes.

Improvements include insulating your home to reduce the amount of energy you use or installing low-carbon heating systems to cut the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces.

  • Applications opened in September 2020.
  • Homeowners must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2021.

Visit the Government’s web page on the Green Homes Grant scheme for an overview, or you can find information on eligibility and making an application at the Simple Energy Advice website.

Solar Together Sussex
