Location: New Addington, Croydon
Purpose: Croydon Council’s energy efficiency programme is looking to support vulnerable and low income households by making their homes more efficient to reduce bills and installing low-carbon energy solutions.
Description: The programme will offer advice and support for people to insulate their homes. This will underpin the council’s sustainable heating initiative which will see 40 council owned flats powered by a ground source heat pump and fitted with double glazing and insulation. In 2020 (when the project started) it was estimated to save households £300 per year on energy bills and help the council lower their maintenance budgets.
Funding: The programme was funded through the government’s ‘private-sector minimum energy efficiency standard compliance and enforcement funding’ competition. The sustainable heating initiative is funded through a combination of the council funding start-up costs and the energy regulator, Ofgem, pledging to pay most back through grants.
Conservative councillor/ council lead: Cabinet Member for Sustainable Croydon, Cllr Muhammad Ali
