What is the
Warmer Homes

Portsmouth City Council, in partnership with 22 other local authority partners, has secured funding through the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) Phase 2 scheme, administered by the Government’s Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), to offer funding to provide energy efficiency upgrades and low carbon heating to qualifying off-gas homes.
