Housing Associations and Social Housing
If you're a housing association or provide social housing and want to install low carbon technologies into homes, please follow our helpful guidance below. We're here to help and support you throughout the process.
We support local authorities and housing associations in the development and execution of decarbonisation initiatives aimed at multiple properties within social housing. We're equipped to facilitate the creation and implementation of decarbonisation programmes, supporting your efforts to transform existing housing units for enhanced sustainability.
Furthermore, we offer assistance in securing external funding, including the Government's Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, to bolster your decarbonisation ambitions. Our dedicated team collaborates closely with you, providing guidance on the feasibility of various technologies in terms of their compatibility with the network.
Should alterations to the network be necessary, our team ensures meticulous planning and identifies responsible parties for associated expenses. We strive to cover costs wherever possible, aligning with changes instituted by Ofgem in April 2023 to mitigate the expenses of connecting low carbon technologies. Additionally, our support extends to aiding in the formal approval process for connecting to our network, if required.

Information required about the inside of the home
The images below are a good example of showing the electricity meter board and consumer unit whilst highlighting its location in the house from the outside. This helps us to understand the amount of disruption required to the garden and access needed. The more images the better, so close up and images of the surrounding area really help. It can also help us identofy what obstuctions there are such as laminate flooring or other service pipes.
