Grant opportunity to improve home energy efficiency

Grant opportunity to improve home energy efficiency

Owners and private landlords of pre 1990 properties of a non-traditional design

If you own a non-traditional design property and would be interested in obtaining a grant to improve the energy efficiency in your home, we would like to hear from you.

The council will be submitting a funding application through the Home Energy Efficiency Programme (HEEPS) and expect to hear the outcome around June 2019. All those who express an interest in applying for a grant will be informed of the outcome.

If the application is successful and grants are therefore available, it is possible that owners/private landlords will need to make a contribution towards the work being carried out.

Previous HEEPS programme run by the council have attracted substantial grants for owner occupiers to help them pay for:

  • external wall insulation
  • replacement of old and inefficient central heating boilers
  • internal wall insulation
  • top-up loft insulation  

What is a non-traditional house?

  • Solid stone houses built before 1930. The work proposed for these properties would be internal wall and loft insulation; 
  • Non-traditional houses ie those built with specialised processes of construction for example Atholl Steel, No Fines (concrete construction), Weir Timber, Cruden, Weir Phoenix. The work proposed for these properties would be external wall and loft insulation.
