Low Carbon heating grants for social landlords

Following the success of the first social landlord competition under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme last year, DECC has launched second round. The amount of money available has increased from £3million to £10million, with more time for social landlords to apply. Registered providers for social housing such as local authorities and social housing associations will be able to bid for up to around £175,000 each.

Vincent Wedlock-Ward MBE, project officer at Southern Housing Group (Isle of Wight Region), a previous social landlord competition winner, said: “We received £175,000 from DECC under last year’s RHPP scheme which helped us replace old storage heating with air source pumps for 40 householders living off the gas grid.”
