What is LAD2?

The South West Net Zero Hub has received a total of £52,950,000 of Government funding as part of Phase 2 of the Local Authority Delivery scheme (LAD 2) which will run until 30 December 2021. The funding administered by the South West Net Zero Hub forms part of the £300 million funding allocated to the five regional net zero hubs in England by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

LAD 2 operates in a different way to previous Government energy efficiency schemes. Regional net zero hubs use local knowledge and regional expertise to identify those households which are most likely to require support, and which would best benefit from energy efficiency upgrades.

The South West Net Zero Hub is appointing LAD2 delivery organisations to improve the energy efficiency of homes of low-income households (with a household income under £30,000) living in the South West area. The scheme aims to improve low energy performance certificate (EPC) D to G rated homes. This will deliver progress towards sustainable warmth: reducing household energy bills as well as supporting the phase out of fossil fuel heating and the UK’s commitment to net zero by 2050.

Eligible measures will differ based on what could benefit each home. Measures may include improvements such as insulation, double glazing and installing solar panels.

Who is eligible?

You could be eligible if you:

  • have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of D, E, F or G. (the local coordinator in your area can check this for you), and
  • have a combined annual household income under £30,000 (gross), or are in receipt of certain benefits

Find out more about EPC and whether your property has a valid certificate at GOV.UK
