The Green Homes Grant (Local Area Delivery Scheme) – also known as LADS – is here. It provides grant funding for some measures, but how much you get and what for, varies from one local authority to another. In some local authorities it is means tested, in others it isn’t. Also because of supply chain issues, in some areas it is behind schedule. If you have energy saving measures through this scheme, then the scheme manager chooses the installer for you. Unlike the previous Green Homes Grant scheme, it is operated by the local authority and the charity Act On Energy, which I think is a good move.
Act On Energy are managing the customer journey in most of the West Midlands, and you can see what is on offer in each local authority on their website – https://actonenergy.org.uk/local-authority-delivery-scheme-lads/
If you’re not in the West Midlands, then Google “Local authority delivery scheme [your local authority name]
As part of the quality assurance scheme that includes LADS, you should receive independent advice from a Retrofit Coordinator, free of charge, if you qualify for LADS. Which means you don’t have to pay me for advice! If however, you would still like to pay me for independent and impartial advice on saving energy in your home – or even your business – then I would be happy to help. I help you to understand where to start, and how to plan for making your home or business environmentally friendly in the short, medium and long term.
