Solar Panel Grants for Oxford
If you are a homeowner or private renter in Oxfordshire, you may be eligible to receive a Solar Panel (PV) grant under the UK government's Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme. This scheme aims to help households reduce their carbon footprint and save money on energy bills by installing renewable energy systems such as solar panels.
Solar PV technology is a renewable heating system that generates electricity from sunlight. Even on cloudy and overcast days, solar panels can still generate electricity, reducing your reliance on grid energy and saving you money on energy bills. With a 25-year manufacturer warranty on panels and a 2-year insurance-backed labour guarantee, you can be confident that your investment is protected.
To qualify for a Solar Panel (PV) grant under the ECO scheme, you must:
- Own or privately rent your property and have the landlord's permission to make the relevant changes
- Have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of G, F or E
- Be on a low income or have an illness affected by the cold
How to Apply
Eco-Home Network is working with homeowners in Oxfordshire to claim ECO 4 grants using the Government's ECO scheme. Suitable households can now obtain an ECO 4 grant, depending on their current circumstances, property type, and EPC rating.
The grant covers installing solar panels, including the panels themselves, inverter, mounting system, and other components needed to generate electricity. The grant also covers the installation cost, including labour and any necessary scaffolding or equipment.
To apply for a Solar Panel (PV) grant, you will need to provide proof of ownership or tenancy and evidence of your income and EPC rating. You must also provide details of the solar panel system you wish to install, including its size and capacity.
Once your application has been approved, a qualified installer will visit your property to assess its suitability for solar panels and to provide you with a quote for the installation. The installer will also advise you on the best location for the panels and any other factors that may affect their performance.
Overall, a Solar Panel (PV) grant is an excellent investment for households looking to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on energy bills. With the help of Eco-Home Network, eligible households can now take advantage of this opportunity to install a renewable energy system in their homes.
