Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Wave 2.1
Three Rivers District Council has secured Social Housing Decarbonisation Funding from the Government to improve the energy efficiency of local social housing with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or below. The funding will be administered by the Council to help qualifying tenants upgrade their homes.
The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) aims to support green jobs and make progress towards national climate change targets while helping households to stay warm, save money, and reduce their carbon footprints.
Who Is Involved?
Three Rivers District Council are working with housing association, Thrive Homes, to deliver the funding to eligible homes in the District.
What Is the Project About?
The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund will be supporting the installation of a range of energy efficiency measures, including external wall insulation and solar panels, to over 150 properties in Three Rivers, which will help to make tenants’ homes healthier, more comfortable, and environmentally friendly. The improvements will also reduce the amount of energy needed to keep tenants’ homes warm in winter and refresh the external appearance of the properties too.
Thrive tenants and eligible private “in-fill” residents will receive these energy-saving upgrades free of charge. The cost of installing the energy efficiency measures to socially rented Thrive homes will be covered by the Government's Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund alongside match contributions from Thrive Homes.
Where Will the Project Be Targeting?
This scheme is targeting socially rented properties owned by Thrive Homes as well as a small number of owner-occupied homes neighbouring participating Thrive properties in Three Rivers.
If you are a Thrive Homes tenant and have received a letter inviting you to take part in the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund scheme, please contact your social housing provider using the contact details provided in the letter if you have any questions or concerns.
