Are you eligible for our HUG energy efficiency scheme?


At Bexley, we are strongly committed to helping our residents reduce their living costs, and to protecting our environment. 

Bexley has chosen to partner with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Everwarm to improve the energy efficiency of Bexley homes, which is a practical step against climate change, and will reduce residents’ energy bills. 

Everwarm are one of the UK’s leading independent energy services providers. Bexley is supporting Everwarm’s scheme to deliver energy efficiency upgrades to homes through its local Home Upgrade Grant Phase 2 (HUG 2) project. You might have received a letter from Everwarm in the post.

HUG 2 is a UK Government-funded scheme that aims to improve the energy efficiency of homes across England. 100% funding is available for eligible householders that own their property.

  • low carbon heating
  • solar panels

At Bexley, we aim to take practical action to address climate change, working with our communities to protect our environment.

Our homes make up 38% of carbon emissions in our Borough – through HUG 2, we can help reduce this. For more information about the work Bexley is doing to look after the environment, see our Climate Change Statement and Action Plan.

Not only is it good for the environment, but this scheme can increase the energy efficiency of your home, helping to managing energy bills. Everyone is being affected by the rising cost of living, and we know that some people are finding it difficult to make ends meet. If you are worried about energy bills, see Bexley’s support page.

What are the eligibility criteria?

We are seeking to support residents who:

  • own their home
  • have a gross household income of £36,000 per year or less OR live in a certain postcodes
  • live in a home with a low energy rating
  • live in a home with no gas central heating
  • live in a property that is an existing domestic dwelling (rather than a new build or self-built property)

You might have received a letter in the post or spoken to someone on your street from Everwarm asking if you meet the eligibility criteria.

We will then carry out an initial eligibility assessment and contact you within six working days. Customers will then be required to provide documentation to enable us to verify your eligibility for the scheme.

How can I apply?

To find out if you may be eligible to benefit from this scheme, please complete the initial application form, and one of our team will be back in touch with you.

What are the next steps?

For households that are found to be eligible, Everwarm will allocate one of its qualified property surveyors to carry out an assessment of the property. This visit will determine the measures that may be suitable for installation.

Once the proposed upgrade(s) have been approved by Bexley and agreed to by the customer, Everwarm will then allocate its accredited installers to install the selected improvements. Once installed, we will provide each customer with a detailed briefing on how to work their new system(s) and ensure all relevant warranties are in place.
