Energy Funding Grants
We administer several energy funding programmes which include grants to support energy efficiency within Irish communities, to grants for homeowners to insulate and draft proof their home; subsequently significantly reduce household energy bills.
SuperHomes Health Pilot 2017 scheme is aimed at people living with a chronic respiratory illness and provides a deep retrofit to Solid Mass Concrete properties in Tipperary. The aim of the scheme is to move the homeowner away from fossil fuel heating systems and replace with a heat pump, along with other measures that will raise the Building Energy Rating to a near A3. This will provide the homeowner with a warmer, healthier home; lowering running costs, energy consumption and benefitting health. It is run by Tipperary Energy Agency and is funded under the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s Better Energy Communities Program and Electric Ireland.

Better Energy Communities is an Energy Efficiency Grant Scheme available through the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and administered by Tipperary Energy Agency in partnership with NTLP (North Tipperary Leader Partnership). If you have an interesting community energy project that might be eligible for 2018 funding, please get in touch. For more information on Better Energy Communities Scheme click here
For the third year running, Our SuperHomes project will aim to give homeowners the opportunity to retrofit their house to an A3 energy rating standard. Funding is available of up to 35% to achieve this. A SuperHome is an energy efficient home that has implemented all the cost effective and sensible energy measures. 22 homes across Ireland were successfully upgraded in 2016 as part of the SuperHomes pilot project.
