Sustainable Hockerton is now offering £500 per property (domestic or business) for insulation of walls, roofs/lofts or underfloor. Or households can continue to claim up to £200 for insulated blinds and curtains. This is to thank the village for hosting the wind turbine, to help develop the sustainability of its buildings and to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
Further details can be found here: http://sustainablehockerton.org/500-offer-to-insulate-hockertons-homes/. There is a bit more small print than previous rounds!
So, if you're planning any of the following; get your application to SHOCK in too!
- loft insulation
- 5 households put their funds together towards a shared solar PV system
- switching to LED lights
- thermally-lined curtains and blinds
- water efficient shower heads
- water butts
We are also hoping to help people with draughts around doors and windows. If anyone is interested in having a thermal picture* of their home taken, with follow up help and practical assistance in draught-proofing, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. (*these are those rainbow coloured photos, they help show where heat is escaping from a building)".
