What is the HUG2 scheme?

  • The Home Upgrade Grant is a government funded scheme providing energy efficiency measures for off-gas households i.e. your property is not on the mains-gas network.
  • Owner-occupiers and private tenants are eligible (with your Landlord’s agreement).
  • Measures will be installed by Council-approved installers following the latest PAS2035 regulations.
  • The Telford Energy Advice team are on hand to guide residents through the process.
