Fully Accredited Energy Saving Installations
Clean renewable energy – without the costly price tag.
Our only concern is to get you the most effective green energy solutions for your home – no pushy sales tactics, no tying you into a deal with diminishing returns. Instead, we’ll use our 50 years of experience and our direct contracts with multiple utility companies like Growatt to find you the home improvement grants that will give you the best results with as little outlay as possible.Energy Grants
The latest version of The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is called ECO4. It provides full funding for homeowners and private tenants living in non-gas homes who want to install solar and heat pumps. This scheme will finish on March 31st, 2026, so you’ll need to act quickly!
- You own or privately rent your home
- You heat your home without gas, e.g. using oil, electricity or LPG
- Your home’s EPC rating is an E or lower
- Somebody within the home receives a benefit
Local councils endorse Solar Together, a group buying scheme that allows homeowners to purchase solar panels and battery storage at a discounted rate. An auction takes place where pre-vetted installers like Grant Store bid for control of the price cap on all solar systems and battery systems. But this is a reverse auction, so the lowest bid wins.
LA Flex funding
An extension of the ECO4 scheme, LA Flex funding, is available from your local council. Each council’s qualifying criteria are different, so it’s important to check very carefully with them before applying. Generally, there are four different routes to qualify for this grant.
- EPC rating D-G households and a low combined income
- A combination of any two sub-proxies relating to your personal circumstances
- Occupants whose health conditions may be impacted by living in a cold home
- Low-income and vulnerable households that are not already eligible under existing routes
First-time central heating
Under the government’s ECO scheme, you can have a new boiler, radiators in each habitable room, wireless heating controls, and a two-year warranty. To get a new A-rated central heating system with grant funding, you must meet the following criteria:
- A member of the household must receive one of the qualifying benefits
- If you privately rent your property, you must have the landlord’s permission
- There must never have been a central heating system in the property previously
The Great British Insulation Scheme
Typical installation costs of British Gypsum insulated backed plasterboard can vary anywhere from £2,500 to £15,000 when you pay privately, but with the Great British Insulation Scheme, you may be eligible for help towards some or all of the cost.
The OZEV grant is available to residents and businesses alike, but what you can claim for varies slightly.

Why go solar?
There are some huge advantages to installing solar power solutions domestically, commercially, and on general public properties. Grant Stores can oversee your installation from beginning to end and ensure that you have access to all the current energy funding that’s available.
Rising energy costs
- Fuel prices are going through the roof, and there’s no sign of them slowing down any time soon.
- Our dependency on fossil fuels and outdated technology is polluting the planet.
- Repairs can be extremely costly.
- Increasing demands on an ageing National Grid mean brownouts and blackouts may become more frequent, leaving you with no power source.
Clean, inexpensive energy
- Enables you to generate your own electricity, massively reducing your energy bills.
- Zero emissions are produced, making the energy you produce carbon neutral.
- Solar installations are guaranteed for 25 years+ and maintenance is minimal.
- Reduced dependency on the National Grid - when everyone else’s lights go out, you’ll still be running on full power.
Grant Store – so much more than by the numbers
We’ve already helped thousands of homes, businesses, and local authorities install energy-saving solutions that have been life-changing both in terms of helping the environment and drastically lowering their energy costs.

Million Pounds of Annual ECO4 Funding
I had Alex & Simon at my house. Hands down, they are the best workmen EVER, by miles. They arrive on time, are polite, super clean & tidy in their work & cleaning up afterwards. Spectacularly good work was carried out by them both. They clearly take pride in the quality of work they do & their cleanliness in people’s homes, which is sadly lacking for most trade's people today who just don’t care how shoddy their work is or have no respect for people’s property.
I have Alzheimer’s, so don’t like disruption . Grant store were brilliant . The men’s who arrived to fit , boiler , underfloor insulation , & hive , were fantastic . House left spotless . Thank you all for fantastic customer service . You are a credit to your profession . Regards & thanks . Paul .
Fantastic service from first contact to fitting. Call centre staff very informative, 1 simple form to complete then sign online. 1 week later boiler fitted. Surveyor and gas fitters very professional and everything cleaned up afterwards. Thanks.
The fitters arrived spot on time and both worked hard informing us exactly what they were going to do,Rob+Paddy were very professional and were good reflection for grant store. boiler installation was great but let down by not having a electrition on same day
The two surveyor's who came out were very professional and personal, we had a laugh about one being a Wigan warriors fan and we're Rhinos fans lol. Then Rob who came out to fit the boiler again very professional and personal, very tidy workmanship. Can't thank your company enough, new boiler fitted in less than a week and easy to deal with.

How Do You Store Solar Energy?
Have questions about our energy-saving measures? No problem! Here are a few of our most commonly asked questions, but if you have any more, please just speak to the team, who’ll be happy to answer them.
What grants are available?
There are many different grants available to help bring your power supply into the 21st century and start saving you money and the planet. They are available to private residents and local authorities (conditions apply) and cover everything from solar panel installation to insulation, heat pumps, boilers, electric wall heaters, and even EV charging.
What criteria do I have to meet in order to be eligible for funding?
This really does depend on a number of different things. Every grant that’s available has different criteria that have to be met, and these can include factors such as your income, the type of benefits you receive, the type of property, where it’s located, whether you’re a home or business owner, how much you’re looking to apply for, and more. The best thing to do is to use our calculator to get a preliminary answer and then contact us to have a more in-depth chat about how we can best help you.
How much grant money will I be awarded?
Again, this all depends on the type of project and the criteria that the body offering the grant has put in place. Acceptance is not 100% guaranteed, so if you’re in any doubt, just speak to our team of experts, who’ll be happy to help guide you through the process.
Are there any specific deadlines or application periods for grants for solar installations in the UK, and how often do they become available?
This can vary depending on the grant scheme. Some grant schemes have specific application periods and deadlines, while others have ongoing applications.
Can I combine multiple grants or funding sources for my solar installation project in the UK, and are there any restrictions or limitations regarding this?
In some cases, it is possible to combine multiple grants or funding sources for solar installation projects, but it’s important to review the terms and conditions of each grant scheme to understand any restrictions or limitations. We’ll consult with the grant providers or relevant experts in the field on your behalf to help clarify the possibilities of combining grants or funding sources.
What is solar electricity?
Solar electricity is energy that’s generated through the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. The panels capture the sun’s free and clean energy, which is transformed into green electricity for your home, business, or public building.
How many solar panels will my property need?
This depends on
- its size and
- what you plan to use it for.
Our helpful calculator will help answer this question – just pop in your details! Still unsure? Speak to the team!
How does solar technology benefit the environment?
Solar technology benefits the environment by providing a clean, renewable energy source that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, decreases reliance on fossil fuels, mitigates air and water pollution, conserves water resources, and helps combat climate change.
Is solar technology reliable?
Yes! Our solar installations use state-of-the-art technology, and the panels themselves are guaranteed for 25 years. Why not see if you qualify for energy funding and see how much you could save while doing your part to protect the environment at the same time?
