HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Tees Valley)

What is HEET?

HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Tees Valley) is a partnership of local authorities in the Tees Valley comprising Darlington, Hartlepool, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland, all working as one under the HEET brand.

HEET provides grants to homeowners and residents to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, keeping them warm and cosy whilst reducing energy usage.

We have been awarded over £6 million in funding from the Government’s Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) to help homes that don’t have gas central heating installed, and are heated by other means such as electricity, oil, LPG or other fossil fuels.

HEET, along with HUG, are offering help and assistance with funding up to the value of £18,000 per household for properties that don’t have gas central heating. The energy efficiency measures include insulation, upgrading windows from single to double glazing, and installing new heating and renewable technologies such air source heat pumps and solar panels – all FREE for qualifying residents.

Your home must have an Energy Performance of D, E, F or G. Go to https://www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate for more information.
