About this opportunity
In the face of rising heating bills and carbon emissions targets, more and more homeowners want to embark on a whole house retrofit, or want to know that any building work they have done makes sense within a long-term energy strategy. Yet many struggle to find the expertise they need nearby.
Future Ready Homes is an Energy Redress Scheme funded initiative led by Marches Energy Agency. The project aims to help householders in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys make their homes warmer, healthier, and greener. Around 350 householders will be recruited and surveyed, creating a pipeline of retrofit work for local contractors.
If you meet the eligibility criteria (see below), you can apply for a 100% discount code on the course fee and your place will be funded by the Energy Redress Scheme.
