Over 2,000 Coventry homes set to become more energy efficient

Coventry Editorial 3rd Apr, 2023   0

OVER 2,000 Coventry homes are set to become more energy efficient in the next two-and-a-half years.

Housing association Citizen has worked with the city council to secure a £23.8million grant through the second wave of social housing decarbonisation fund.

The grant will see work on homes to improve energy performance, such as improving external wall and loft insulation and improving ventilation to reduce the potential for mould.

The funding’s first wave saw Citizen and the city council secure funding to improve 95 homes last year.

It is a government requirement that all rented homes must achieve a minimum EPC band C rating by 2030, meaning it needs to have been built using energy-efficient methods or the home’s fabric has been upgraded.

The council’s cabinet member for housing and communities, Coun David Welsh, said: “Helping more people to access a good standard of affordable housing is absolutely vital, and this funding will mean families should be able to see reduced energy bills.”
