PeCAN has teamed up with the National Energy Foundation and local professional Retrofit Coordinators to create a new pilot called ‘Petersfield Area SuperHomes’.
As a homeowner, you can benefit from an independent, impartial assessment of your home which takes into consideration your individual needs, and provides bespoke recommendations through a detailed plan. This is called the ‘Whole House Retrofit Plan’ and its aim is to improve the comfort, health and energy efficiency of your home by guiding you through a series of retrofit measures.
Emissions from our homes are a significant contributor to our overall carbon footprint. The UK government recognises this and is bringing in a variety of initiatives which include financial incentives to improve the energy efficiency of our homes.
Many people want to improve their home's energy efficiency to help the environment whilst at the same time making their home a healthier and more comfortable place to live.
But, it is not easy to know where to start, who to trust and what support is available.
1. Contact us: fill in the form below and we can arrange a call or a home visit to explain exactly how the plan works.
2. Conduct a survey: We will arrange for a qualified independent Retrofit Coordinator to speak to you and carry out a survey on your property. There is a cost associated with this, but you may be eligible for a subsidy of up to 90% of the cost.
3. Review your plan: The Retrofit Coordinator will talk you through your retrofit plan which details the most important measures for you to take and crucially the order it makes the most sense to complete them in. We will also advise you on any further government subsidies that you could benefit from, see our Finance and Funding page.
4. You decide: With this independent advice you can then make an informed decision on what works best for your individual circumstances. We can continue to help you through your journey with project management, the recommendation of approved suppliers and help with understanding what grants you may be eligible for.
The newly developed national SuperHomes Rating Scheme assesses a home not only on carbon emissions and energy efficiency but also comfort and well-being. We will be offering some homeowners the chance to become a full ‘Show Home’ where we use your home as a case study on the benefits of installing retrofit measures in return for free monitoring equipment and pre and post property valuations.
Petersfield Area SuperHomes is run by Petersfield Climate Action Network in partnership with the National Energy Foundation and Winchester Action on Climate Change. The project is funded until April 2023 by the Energy Redress Scheme, operated by the Energy Saving Trust.
