Help to reduce fuel bills

Home Upgrade Grant - HUG2

Under the Government HUG2 grant, the Council will be delivering energy efficiency measures to homes in conjunction with community energy groups.

The Council has been awarded funding from by the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) to improve the energy efficiency of 200 homes across South Hams and West Devon by March 2025. HUG2 will be delivered in partnership with local community energy groups, supporting the applicant throughout the whole process.

HUG2 focuses on a whole house approach, ensuring a solution is developed for the whole home. This would start with a fabric first approach - the insulation, and then low-carbon heating, and if possible, any further measures.

HUG2 Eligibility

  • Energy Performance Certificate of D or below. You can check yours here:
  • The property must be off-gas
  • The combined gross (before tax) annual income of the household is to be below £36,000 per annum - you will be asked to provide evidence to support this.

Funding will not be guaranteed until all evidence is checked and surveys are completed on your home to ensure that it is suitable for the proposed measures.

If you would like to be considered for this grant please contact Tamar Energy Community (TEC) and mention HUG2 in your contact form. TEC will then contact you in due course.
