Home energy efficiency assistance

Since 2021 we have been working successfully in partnership with Bristol City Council and Bath and North East Somerset Council to deliver home energy efficiency improvements across the district.

Bright Green Homes project - Home Upgrade Grant

This year, the Bright Green Homes project is being delivered by our partners at Bristol City Leap and aims to assist low-income households living in properties that do not have mains-gas central heating.

The project aims to improve homes to be more energy-efficient through the provision of a range of insulation and low-carbon technologies, including:

  • cavity wall insulation
  • external wall insulation
  • loft insulation
  • underfloor insulation
  • air source heat pump
  • solar PV


To be eligible for the grants, applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • a combined annual household income of £36,000 per year or under
  • a valid Energy Performance Certificate with a rating of D, E, F or G
  • the property must not use gas central heating
  • you must live in the North Somerset Council area

Owner occupiers and private landlords with a portfolio of four or fewer properties are eligible to apply. Landlords will be required to contribute one-third of the cost of the upgrades.
