CHS Group awarded almost £1million to improve homes’ EPC rating for its tenants

CHS Group, which provides homes for 7,000 tenants, has been awarded £949,000 by the government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund to boost energy performance certificate (EPC) ratings in its homes.

The Cambridgeshire-based charitable housing association and social enterprise received the boost from the second wave of the fund announced on 18 March. It will allow CHS Group to install external wall insulation, cavity wall and loft insulation top-ups, energy efficient double-glazing, replacement doors, LED lighting and ventilation.

Following the works, monitoring equipment will also be installed in a number of property types to measure the overall increase in thermal performance and reduction in carbon.

CHS Group has also committed to setting up workshops, visits and open days to give tenants energy advice and training on how to use the new technology and improvements effectively.

Tina Warren, director of homes, said: “We are delighted with the outcome of this bid. The significant funding will enable us to make lasting changes and upgrades to our homes that will improve the overall quality of our properties, and ultimately, support our tenants to achieve a better quality of life.

“We are committed to providing high-quality homes for our 7,000 tenants and we take pride in our ability to innovate and deliver sustainable, climate friendly services. A huge thank you to our staff who collaborated to secure this successful outcome.”
