Grants Available to Upgrade Off-Gas Properties in Plymouth

Posted on March 15th, 2024

Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) is an award-winning local charity with 10 years of experience supporting households in Plymouth. Its Future Fit team is working in partnership with Plymouth City Council to help homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their properties through the Government-funded Home Upgrade Grant (HUG2).

Am I eligible?

HUG2 provides funding towards the cost of upgrades for landlords that meet the following criteria:

  • The Landlord owns a total of 4 or less privately rented properties.
  • The house has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rated D or below and does not use mains gas for heating.
  • The current tenants are either located in an eligible postcode area OR have a total gross annual household income of £36,000 or less (excluding disability benefits)


What upgrades can I have?
Every home is different, but potential improvements may include:

  • Cavity wall, loft or underfloor insulation
  • Air Source Heat Pumps
  • High Heat Retention Storage Heaters
  • Solar panels
  • Heating controls


What are the benefits?
Improving the energy efficiency of your properties can:

  • Improve relations with tenants
  • Lower bills for tenants
  • Make homes warmer and healthier for tenants to live in
  • Help safeguard against future legislative risks associated with EPC Bands.
  • Result in fewer maintenance problems (e.g. less mould and damp)
  • Potentially increase the value of the property
