Support available for Caerphilly households to improve energy efficiency

By |Published On: 7th June 2023|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Support is now available to improve the energy efficiency of eligible households in the Caerphilly county borough.

Caerphilly County Borough Council is working with energy companies and Cardiff Capital Region (representing the ten local authorities of Southeast Wales) to support households in poorly insulated homes; making them more energy efficiency and helping lessen the impact of rising energy bills.

As part of the national ECO4 and ECO Flex schemes, EDF and other energy companies will be investing in energy efficiency community schemes to support ‘fuel poor’ homes and those households that include individuals with health conditions exacerbated by living in a cold home.

Through its partnership with Cardiff Capital Region and EDF, Caerphilly Council is encouraging applications from households in the borough that:

  • Live in ‘off gas’ homes in rural areas 
  • Include individuals with certain health conditions 
  • Receive welfare support, or 
  • Have a household income of below £31,000 
  • Own or privately rent a home which is not energy efficient (i.e. has an Energy Performance Certificate of Band E, F or G.) 

Cllr Shayne Cook, Caerphilly Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said “During the current cost of living crisis, rising energy bills are a concern for many residents. This scheme aims to support those most affected, and I urge households who meet the eligibility criteria to get in touch.”
