Renewable Energy – Ground Source Heat Pumps and Solar PV

Happy Energy Solutions Ltd currently only undertakes renewable energy works where the customer is eligible for one of our grants.  Currently, these are only available on ground source heat pumps and some Solar PV installations, for eligible customers.
The ground source heat pump will be eligible for the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive, which offer payments for 7 years.  As part of the works, we may be able to take these payments to help offset the cost of the installation upgrade, typically in larger detached houses, or you can make a contribution and receive the payments directly.

Am I eligible for a ground source heat pump grant?

There are 3 main ways that you could be eligible for one of our grants:

  • If you receive qualifying benefits
  • If you are on a low income and have high heating costs*
  • If you have a low income and someone in your home has a long term illness*

*The last 2 options are only available in certain local authority areas, if you are not on benefit but you are on a low income, please get in touch and we will confirm if your local authority area is covered by this scheme

Sorry, but the grants are not available for social housing.

Which benefits apply?

You should be eligible if you, or anyone living in your home receives one of these benefits:

  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Child or Working Tax Credit
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Universal Credit
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance

  • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • Disability living Allowance
  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

  • Child Benefit (with an income below a certain limit – see below)

For Child Benefit, you must also earn below a certain threshold based on the number of people in your family as per the table below.  You will be required to sign a self declaration to confirm that your income is below one of these thresholds based on your family circumstances.  A child is typically 16 or under and living with you, or under 20 if in approved education, and the income is your combined household income before tax and including all benefits.

I am not on benefit but I am on a low income or suffer from an illness, am I eligible?

In some local authority areas it is possible for you to be eligible for the heating grant if you are on a low income and have high heating costs, for example you live in a large home with solid walls, or if you are on a low income and someone in your home suffers from a long term illness which can in some cases include mental health issues.   If you believe you may fit these criteria please get in touch, we will need to ask you a series of questions and find out which local authority your home comes under.  We will then confirm if we are able to assist you with a heating grant.

Ground source heat pump grants from Happy Energy are available for homes across the south of England

Roughly what will the combination of the RHI payments and the grant cover?
  • Larger homes (especially those with solid walls) – Around 60-100% grant for a ground source heat pump upgrade
  • Smaller homes or those that are already well insulated – around of 30-40% of the cost of the heat pump upgrade

If our ground source heat pump grants  do not cover all of the cost of the works, you can either pay the difference, consider a finance package which we can facilitate (subject to credit status) or if your property is rented, you may be able to ask your landlord to contribute.
