Renewable Energy and Heat

Find out the best ways to heat and power your home without contributing to climate change. We’ll even help you save money on your utility bills!

Did you know: Domestic heating is one of the main contributors to climate change, and it costs the average household £1,254 a year to heat their home! Find out how you can save money on your energy bills here.

More than 14,000 Northumberland households are affected by fuel poverty due to poor heating and energy efficiency measures. In a bid to reduce fuel poverty and tackle the climate emergency, we are working with E.ON to offer free energy efficiency improvements to more than 300 homes across the county.

We’re looking to install a mix of air source heat pumps, solar panels and external wall insulation to 200 private and 140 council owned properties before next winter hits, helping our residents save money when heating and powering their homes.

To be eligible for the private property installation, you must:
•    Own your own home
•    Have a household income of less than £30,000
•    Hold an EPC rating of D, E, F or G
Residents do not need to be an existing E.ON customer to benefit from the scheme.

Council tenants will be contacted by the NCC Housing team to discuss installation works.
