Leeds City Council is giving away green upgrades to eligible homeowners, renters, and landlords in Leeds that don’t use gas central heating.

If you qualify, you could receive government-backed financial support to improve your home with measures such as solar panels, insulation, or an electric heat pump system.

How does it work?

Trusted contractors will recommend the most suitable upgrades for your property and make everything easy along the way

Eligible homeowners will receive upgrades completely free of charge. Eligible landlords will receive a two-thirds discount on upgrades
