Homes & property Generate energy or reduce your energy bills

Do you want to earn money from renewable energy? Or you can get up to £12,000 to turn your home into a demonstration house for Manchester and save money – see Little Bill communities?

Generating energy at home from renewable sources helps the environment, and putting you in control. It can earn you money too!

'Renewable' energy like this produces much less CO2 and other greenhouse gases than conventional methods.

There are government grants available for most technologies including solar, wind, geothermal and biomass/wood burners. You could also get help through the Home Energy Loan Plan scheme.

Solar powered

Wind speeds in urban areas are often too low to make small-scale domestic turbines worthwhile. So solar-powered water offers a more attractive return on your investment especially if you use a lot of hot water and rely on electricity, oil or liquid petroleum gas.

There are two great solar PV offers available to Manchester residents, visit Greater Manchester Energy Advice for more information.
