Birmingham City Council has obtained funding through the national Local Authority Development Scheme (LADS) to improve the energy efficiency of low-income households and low EPC rated homes, including those living in the lowest quality off-gas grid homes across their district.   

A range of measures have been made available through this scheme, which can reduce and prevent heat and energy loss in the home and reduce fuel bills. 

Measures available:

  • Insulated windows and doors (please note only single glazed windows can be replaced).
  • More energy efficient lighting.
  • Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.

 

Homeowners and tenants will qualify for funding if the following two criteria are met:

  • Occupants/tenants, as well as landlords, must have a combined gross household income (including any benefits you receive) of under £30,000.
  • Your home/property has a home energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G.  

Please note that if you are a landlord you will be expected to make a contribution to the cost of any works undertaken.

 

Tenures eligible for funding:

  • Council stock.
  • Owner occupiers.
  • Private rented sector.
