Information on the types of grants available
Grants are available for various purposes to help pay for the cost of improving the energy efficiency in your home.
Currently Available Grants:
KENT: Kent households can currently benefit from new funding, in February 2007, meaning the lowest prices ever for those that have to make a contribution. These prices cannot be beaten. You pay only £149. 100% grants are still available for those on benefits and credits and from 30% - 70% for those not on benefits, countrywide. See below.
It has recently been confirmed that grants for cavity wall insulation and loft insulation will be available until at least 2011. However, these grants are subject to change at short notice, and it is part of Exact Assessors role to keep fully up to date with the most current grants. The figures outlined on this page are correct at time of presentation and are updated on a regular basis. For further advice, please contact us either via email or via our contact form and our qualified staff will be able to advise you of the best scheme that is specifically suited to your needs.
