Redditch Borough 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:

  • High Heat Retention Storage Heaters
  • Solar PV – Photovoltaic Panels
