Bristol City Council has secured grant funding to improve the energy efficiency of rented properties with the worst energy efficiency ratings – those with an EPC rating of F or G. This was created in response to the new provision that will be legislated from April 2018 that will make it unlawful to let residential or commercial property with an EPC rating of F or G, the two lowest grades of an energy performance certificate.
Currently, Bristol City Council can provide funding of up to £3,000 to help with the cost of installing energy efficiency measures including:
- Boiler replacement
- Electrical heating upgrades
- Double glazing
- Conversion to gas
The grant is per property and can be taken up by individual landlords for a maximum of 10 properties, this funding is limited and ends on the 31st March 2015.
