We have been made aware of residents being approached in respect of Eco/Green insulation or solar panel installations claiming to be part of a government scheme supported by local authority.
Please do not sign up to any of these type of schemes following a cold call or leafleting. Whilst there are some schemes supported by the government the green energy sector has seen a large increase in scams which can result in you spending a lot of money on work and installations that will never benefit you and may be detrimental.
If you would like to find out if you are eligible for any type of grant funding for larger energy efficient measures such as insulation or new heating systems please contact Croydon Healthy Homes.
