Making social housing greener - and saving tenants' money!

The government has announced today a £160 million investment to improve the energy efficiency of social housing, making tens of thousands of homes warmer and cheaper to heat as we build back greener. 

  • We all have a role to play in preventing climate change, but improving the energy efficiency of homes remains unaffordable for many of the poorest in our country. 
  • That is why the government is investing £160 million as part of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, upgrading the windows, heating systems and doors of 38,000 of the UK’s least energy-efficient social rented homes - taking them from EPC ratings of D or below to a minimum C rating. 
  • This initiative will save tenants £170 a year on energy bills and make their homes warmer, whilst reducing the UK’s carbon emissions.
